my baby is ONE!

Happy 1st Birthday my dear Son! God must have known I needed a good dose of trucks, dinosaurs, mischief, and the sweetest cuddles ever among the sea of pink, so he sent me you, the most precious little boy, on a sunny day one year ago today. I remember how when I was just 13 weeks along with you my sweet boy, we sat at the specialist's office as they ran some tests. You were so wiggly and wouldn't get into the position they needed for the measurements they were taking. We were in that ultrasound room for over an hour. I quietly asked the tech if she could tell if you were a boy or a girl and although she wouldn't commit, she grinned and said if she were a betting woman, she would say BOY. I couldn't believe it. A boy. Blue stuff. Cars and trucks and sports and a world I had no idea about. I worried I wouldn't know how to be the mother of a son. Such a responsibility to bring up a son in a way that would raise a godly man. What I didn't know at that moment was that I was being given an amazing gift. You have carved yourself into my heart in a way for which there are no words to describe. Your smile lights up a room...and melts my heart. Your dad was so proud to know he would be able to pass down the family name. He was already a wonderful father to Grace and so I knew he would be a wonderful father to you too. What a blessing! You are a flirt and you have no desire to walk just yet...and that's just fine with me. I'll hold you and carry you and treasure these months of your babyhood, for I know that toddlerhood is just around the corner and once you take off I have a feeling we'll be chasing you for a VERY long time...something like 18+ years! My prayer for you Hudson is that you will follow the path God has set for you, keeping Him in your heart always. That you will know we love you with every fiber of our being and that you will never hesitate to come to us in times of need. I know that God has mighty plans for you and I pray His blessings over you today on your 1st birthday and every day of your life. Happy 1st Birthday, Hudson!
We love you so much,
Mama, Daddy & Grace

What a precious post. I had two little darling girls, after two very difficult pregnancies. Did not think I could do it again, when 8 yrs later, I did! After losing one of the twins I was carrying, I gave birth to a BIG, healthy, bouncing baby boy!!! He has been such a blessing, and to have the gift of raising both girls and a boy, has been so wonderful. My baby turned 21 in Feb. And his sissies are 29 and 27!! My daughters lives so remind me of yours. I adore your blog. Happy Birthday to your Hudson!
