Everybody Loves Hudson!

Busy weekend with lots of visitors...
now it's just me, Rob, Hudson, and Bosco...
kinda scary...but exciting at the same time...
MY family.

p.s. I couldn't have survived the last two weeks without my mom. She is truly selfless. She cooked every meal, cleaned my house, changed many a poopy diaper, cuddled and cradled Hudson to sleep...the list goes on. Just wanted to acknowledge her and let her know we appreciated all her help!!!

100 things

i loved reading these lists on people's blogs...
you really get a feel for the person writing them...
a glimpse into their lives...

here's mine:

1. this is the longest i've been alone with my new baby (going on 2 hours)
2. because rob is at school
3. and my mom is out shopping for me...i need new pre-pregnancy ones sit right at my c-section incision line which is very painful
4. she also has to buy some "newborn" size sleepers for Hudson...i have tons of size 3months...which are way too big for my little bugger
5. i thought my baby was going to be late (past 40 weeks) and large (over 8 pounds)
6. instead, he was early and tiny
7. yesterday i dropped the phone on Hudson's head while I was nursing him
8. i felt horrible, especially when it left a mark
9. today the mark is gone, thank god.
10. i am vain and can admit it. today i had a mini breakdown because i feel ugly and nothing fits right (hence why my mom is out shopping for underwear for me)...
11. i haven't worn makeup since giving birth
12. this would be the longest i've gone without wearing make up in probably 15-20 years!
13. the first thing i said after Hudson was born was "hi stinker"
14. i'm never going to make it to 100
15. because i'm typing with one hand, while holding Hudson with my other arm
16. and my arm is already killing me...because i don't have any muscles...
17. because i hate exercise
18. i'm done...and may continue later...
19. or maybe not...

Happy Belated Birthday Sister!

I didn't forget about you...however I WAS busy nursing my baby Hudson, trying to play hostess to some visitors, and sleep a few minutes here and although I didn't post about you yesterday...I did indeed think of you big sister!!! I hope you had a good day, and from Romy's pictures on her blog, it looks like you had fun.

Next year we'll share some birthday cake, me, you, and Hudson (scorpio-clan)...

love you always.

Quick quick post, as I have an insatiable little bugger who is going to want some boob soon...

he is sleeping with his grandpa right now (my dad has a knack for putting babies to sleep) so i thought i'd post some pictures of my little Hudson!

for those of you who didn't get the details from Rob...

Hudson Joshua was born Nov. 12th at 7:32pm at 6 pounds, 14 ounces (and what kind of mama would I be if I didn't brag that he scored a 9 on his Apgar test?)!!!

He's absolutely perfect...I will write more about the whole crazy labour later...I still feel like my body has been hit by a truck!

Surprise Visit!!!

I was expecting my mom, sister Susan, and Romy to come from Montreal for a visit today. I opened my front door to also find my oldest friend Nathalie there too! Amazing surprise, since I haven't seen her in forever! Then not too long after, the doorbell rings once again and it's Caroline, Serge, and baby Olivia (from Toronto...well they were first in Montreal, but still...)!!! My mother and sister started cooking up a storm in the kitchen, while I got to visit with my oldest and dearest friends! My dressed-down attire and pulled back hair is proof that I had NO IDEA that I was going to have visitors today...and also why there aren't more pictures posted on this blog...I look fat and greasy in most of the shots. Again, I didn't take any pictures with my sister (that always seems to happen for some reason), and I'm really disappointed about that. There are more pictures on her camera which I will post once she sends them to me. Even Bosco got spoiled today...Romy brought him treats AND my dad gave him a yummy bone. What could be better than pigging out, eating 3 different kinds of dessert, opening baby gifts, holding beautiful Olivia, and hanging out with good friends and family?!? Absolutely nothing...thanks guys...Rob and I had the perfect day today.

P.S. BIG kisses to my big sister and mom for cooking and cleaning everything...they are the greatest.

more pregnancy pictures...

Pregnancy Pictures!

We got some pregnancy pictures taken by a 2nd year photography student at Algonquin College (Rob's school)...she needed models to expand her portfolio and we wanted some photos of our little Raspberry before he/she arrived..., eh?
