3 weeks...







My baby boy Hudson is 3 weeks old...

and my hormones are less volatile (the Tim Horton's commercial with the Chinese guy watching his son/grandson play hockey made me bawl my eyes out last week), Hudson's baby acne is clearing up nicely, I'm actually getting USED to only 4 hours of "broken" sleep a night, and Hudson is SLOWLY getting used to sleeping on his own (he sleeps so soundly in our arms...but the minute you put him "down"...he's up and wide awake)! I had a few episodes in the beginning, of feeling overwhelmed and wondering if I was going to know how to be a "mama"...but I'm happy to say those feelings have lessened...and I feel like I'm getting into my routine. I can't stop staring at him, feeling so blessed that he's in my life...he's a stinker like the rest of our family...a little high-maintence at times...he fits in perfectly!!!

Hello Hudson!
He looks so awake!! Hudson is definately going to break a lot of hearts one day...
Try to relax when you can, baby sister! And don't forget that you will always make the right choices when they are YOUR choices; rely on your gut!

Hi Joyce & Baby Hudson,
You are soooo cute baby Hudson. I love you. Thanks Joyce for updating your blog. You made my day.

Any kid who has you as a mama is gonna turn out just fine. You are one of the greatest people I've ever had come into my life (I guess that's why I call you my best friend, Huh?) and I have no qualms that you and Rob will raise any child to be anything less than perfect (o.k., so maybe that's applying too much pressure, no kid is perfect, right?) Just kidding...you know what I'm trying to say, your amazing and your kids and family will be too! He's so darn cute!!!!!

Good update! glad to hear things are getting a little easier...
Robin thinks Hudson "looks JUST like Rob". I think he is a great mix.

Hey,nice blog!!! I found a place where you can make an extra $800 or more a month. I do it part time and make a lot more than that. It is definitely worth a visit! You can do it in your spare time and make good cash. Make Extra Cash

Hi Joycee... don't ask how I found this but I did.
Congratulations Mama! Looks like you are doing really well.
I am days away from popping myself, and I can't wait to post photos of our little one when she arrives.

Happy Holidays (and write soon)
