I'M A MAMA!!!





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!

He's so adorable. I wish I was cuddling him right now instead of looking at pictures of him thru the internet. He's just so darn cute.

YAY you did it. What a cutie! Congratulations. I can't wait to hear your crazy story. BTW I read a book about a guy named Hudson Taylor. Amazing guy. Great name.

Can't wait to hear the birth story from your prospective. :) Happy nursing...EVERY two hours! He sounds like a champ nurser. :)
Congrats to you both.

Congrats Joyce and Rob! Hudson is so sweet looking. Enjoy the time with him..he will grow up so fast and will be walking around and calling you mamma before you know it (like mine does..sniff sniff).

BTW, here's a tip (if you haven't figured it out already). When you've opened his diaper to change it, quickly put a dry washcloth on top of his tinky winky (don't know what else to call it on an infant!). I may have just saved you a few golden showers and middle of the night clothing changes. I had my share of golden showers in the very beginning since I had a girl first and knew nothing about changing a boy. Of course once you're a pro, you'll spot the warning signs before it happens and lift up the front flap of the diaper to shield yourself!

Hope you are feeling normal soon,

Sonia
