{six months}

dear hudson,

a whole half a year has passed
since mommy was in labor (and not realizing it)
and anxiously awaiting your arrival by planned c-section

mommy was overjoyed to find out that the date she picked to be your birthday
(pretty much the soonest date her doctor would allow)
was, in fact, the one that God had chosen for you all along!

seeing you for the first time
i was overcome with so much emotion 
your daddy placed you in my arms while i was still lying there in surgery,
and i caught a glimpse of your sweet face
everything inside of me melted with the most powerful love for you....my little baby son

now, my heart is even more filled to the brim as I get to know you
and who you are, and what you like
and your smile, and your giggles...
yes, your giggles
your little boy love for your sister, and your patience with her way of loving you back
makes my mama heart glad

i have not started you on any solid foods yet
but my, oh, my are you getting excited about mommy and daddy's food at the table

you have definitely started making your wants known these days//
cute to see you developing into such a little person
you sit well enough on your own until you get distracted by a certain girly someone
{which is like every other second...ellie wants to ensure you never have feelings of loneliness or abandonment   :) }

"why, hello there, mr. giraffe"

everybody is so in love with your squishy qualities
and your uber-friendly outlook on life
you make total strangers stop and talk to you...you are such a people magnet
and you reward them all with coos and happy grins

{sigh} i just love you two

mommy took you for some shots today  {sad}
but you did pretty well all in all//
you would have done amazingly if we wouldn't have had to wait for over an hour at the doctor's office
during what should have been naptime....sorry about that, honey

you must weigh about 20 pounds now
mommy will know for sure after your six-month doctor's visit
i certainly feel like you have gained a couple pounds!!  {smile}

thank you for making me such a happy, proud mommy, sweets!
