Hudson was served yesterday… Either he initiates his dissent by Friday or Friday, 4/19/13 at approximately 12:30pm, he will be removed from the warm and cozy home he’s known his entire little 10 months of gestation! I went in for an ultrasound yesterday morning just to confirm my doctor’s concern that Hudson is measuring a little too healthy at over 10 pounds! Hudson has continually measured about three weeks ahead of schedule (and nope, I’m not off on the conception date!) so the c-section should come as no surprise to us… yet, I find myself in a state of shock. I’ve never had a c-section, my first two were delivered healthy and happy (and naturally!) at 6lbs 15 oz (Luke) and 8 lbs 11 oz (Logan). I’ll even go as far as to say that Logan’s delivery was pretty… FUN! Well, after I got my epidural, of course!
With Logan, I got to hang out with my in-laws while laboring (lots of laughs, putting on makeup, hanging out, you know.. just an ordinary dayAnd then Logan was out in one push (maybe a push and a half, it happened all so easily and so fast!) I was praying for the same/similar experience with the labor and delivery of Hudson… So, at this point, hearing that I have to have a c-section come Friday, I have no idea how to prepare myself!
I’m not at all worried about the surgery, the scar, or even the fact that I won’t be able to hold my little Hudson in my arms right away… Thank God Trev will be by my side the entire time and I’ll get to live vicariously through his eyes and facial expressions as he watches as the doctors pull Logan from my belly <3 I’m saddened that I’ll have to be hospitalized for three days. Three days without my Lukies and Logies. Especially my Logies, who has been so attached to me lately and has been sick for what seems like forever! I’m already missing my boys so much and today I was able to prepare just a little bit for it by holding them in my arms so tight and cherishing (like always) every moment with them!
I’m sure it’s the hormones talking, lol, but I’m feeling very sentimental these days! I’m enjoying the everyday with my boys, savoring my time as a mommy of only two baby boys on the outside. Trying to give them all my time and attention while getting them (ok, mostly Luke because Loges has no idea what the heck is going on… well, not that we know of anyway!) excited to meet their new little baby brother (though Luke insists that he’s still “going to like baby Sophia better because she’s soooooo cute!”)!
Side note: Luke is already asking if, “after baby Hudson comes out” I’m “going to have a baby guurl.” Lol, slow down buddy! Did your dad send you over?! Luke has been asking for a baby sister since before I was pregnant with Hudson… and his reasoning is always “because baby girls are sooooo cuuuuuute!”
Life is really great right now. Crazy, but great! God has provided for us in ways we could’ve never dreamed of!! We’ve come to realize that often times, the struggles placed before us turn very quickly into blessings in disguise ♥
Just a little update on my boys, since I can never seem to get around to a personal blog share on each of them
Luke: 3.5 years old. Started pre-school a couple months ago and is doing GREAT! While he’ll still give a cough here and there and say, “I’m too sick to go to preschool,” he really loves going and runs to his class every morning. We originally had him in three full-days a week but he didn’t do so well with that schedule so we now have him going half-days, Mon-Fri and it’s working out great! Luke has become a very good helper around the house and with Logan. I love when he gets super excited to see Logan after a nap or any time spent away from him and just runs up to him and squeezes him so tight! Luke has become a much better sleeper/napper since starting school and a much better listenerHe’s been fully potty trained since three and still doing great! He’ll even wake in the middle of the night (usually when I put him to bed, forgetting to make him use the restroom before putting him down!) to go to the restroom! This boy has restraint! He’s such a sweet, lovable and saucy kid and I couldn’t be more proud to be his mommy!
Logan: 16 months old. Not quite 1.5 years but getting so big! He’s in the 99th percentile for height and 96th for weight, he’s going to be big and tall! He’s mommy’s cuddly little baby bear! Always in a happy mood, loves to smile and give cuddles. He’s still an excellent sleeper (and I’m dreading having to kick him out of the nursery and into Luke’s bedroom when Hudson goes into the nursery!) and I feel that most his life, still, is spent asleep! He absolutely LOVES his big brother and loves tackling and running from him. He can take Luke’s roughness (a good thing for survival, lol) and loves to give it back in return! Logan has the cutest little curls that fall right at his neck! Speaking of neck, he loves to be kissed all over, especially his neck, one of his most ticklish spotsLogan is very independent and loves to feed himself, get on and off the couch by himself and of course, loves to run and play by himself. I love how he loves bath time, but as soon as he’s had his fill, he tries to climb out on his own like “I’m done!” Every moment watching him grow is just so fun and goes by too fast! I love his crooked little smile, how he shuts his eyes with a huge, teeth-showing smile (though the smile kind of reminds me of the Beast on Beauty and the Beast, lol).
It’s always a mad dash when I get home from work: cooking dinner, feeding kids, cleaning up, preparing for bath time and bed time, giving baths, getting ready for bed…. It’s my most absolute favorite time of the day and I look so forward to walking through the door after work, both kids running to greet me usually to see who can sit on my lap first!
And none of this would be as exciting if I couldn’t share it with my partner in crime, my significant other and the BEST daddy in the world, Trev ♥
And here are some recent photos taken of my boys during my favorite event of the night… bath time ♥
Love me some little squishy bottoms ♥
And Logies… just stomping away ♥
Likely, the next time I update I will be a mommy of three little boys (all on the outside) ♥
