at 2:13 in the afternoon on monday, june 22nd...

...we welcomed our beautiful baby boy into this world,
fresh from the hands of God and into our loving arms!

with hearts full of love we introduce Hudson Rowe
2:13 p.m.
8 lb. 8 oz.
20 in.

This is what falling in love looks like Father and son meet for the first time Grace meet your little brother Hudson,
Hudson meet your big sis Grace I don't know - he's kind of squirmy......but I love him.
The little pumpkin kept telling me, "Awwww...he's so cute." Just when you think a heart can not possibly hold more of "that" type of just happens. Feeling incredibly blessed. Our family of four. Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes! We came home yesterday and have been adjusting to our newly expanded family (so far, so good!).

About the delivery...
It was an incredibly easy delivery, for which I am so thankful! The induction was much better than I had imagined. We had wonderful nurses - most were the same ones we had with Grace which was nice. I got the epidural when I was 5cm and this time it worked like a charm! Things moved right along and I went from 7cm to 10 and complete in 20 minutes. I told the nurse I was feeling a different kind of pain. She came in, checked me and said "don't push". My doctor came in. I had asked Lance to take a picture of the wall clock when I started pushing (2:03 p.m.) and Hudson was born just 10 minutes later :) If I could skip the pregnancy part, I would definitely do the labor part again to end up with another lil bit of heaven in my arms!
