You are such a handsome boy!
17 months ago, you were placed in our arms and our lives have never been the same. From the moment you were born Daddy and I were changed, touched, overwhelmed, full of joy and completely and utterly head over heels in love with you.
3 months old

We have watched you grow into a strong, loving, silly, courageous little boy! You still have your chubby cheeks and thunder thighs, but you are not quite a baby anymore (even though you'll always be our baby!)

I just came out of your room. I put you to bed and you cried, so I went back in and picked you up. You gave me one of your great big bear hugs and about melted Mommy's heart! So I sat in our rocking chair and sang to you. You grabbed my shirt and just stared at me. I watched you fall asleep so peacefully and gently. Your little hand held on to my shirt the whole time. I ran my fingers through your soft curls and just soaked it all in. Some day you'll be too big for mommy to rock you, some day you will tuck yourself into bed, some day you'll read your baby Goodnight Moon and The Hungry Caterpillar, but for now, I will rock you to sleep and sing you Auntie Robyn's lullaby and the lullaby I wrote for you and I will soak it in, every little second because these little moments that are so simple ... are my favorite.
These little moments are what makes Mommy cry happy tears because You are the most precious gift that the Lord has ever given us. He made you so perfect and so unique. Your smile that wrinkles your nose, your ears that look just like Daddy's, your dark chocolate eyes and golden curls, your giggles and screams...Hudson, you are the perfect you!
