Photo Dump

Picture Time! Some of these are older (as old as they can be considering Hudson's only 7 weeks old) but they are undeniably cute!

His first "real" bath in the bath tub.

Holding my head up like a champ!

Hudson wearing his dump truck outfit beside the
concrete truck piggie bank from Granna & Papaw.

Finally somewhat interested in the playmat thingy.

Mama couldn't ask for a sweeter morning Bible Study buddy.

Thinking important thoughts in Daddy's arms.

Mama stood for at least 15 minutes trying to capture his sweet smiles -
this was as close as I could get. 

Finally enjoying the bouncer.

is the total to date for this cutie's birth.

Hudson showing off his new trick - spit bubbles
I say 'to date' because we get new bills in the mail daily - literally every day. Sigh. In all honesty, I think it's quite the bargain as he's 100% priceless in our eyes.

We have applied for financial aid for the hospital part, which is about half of the total.  I'm learning that no one actually works for the hospital but is a subcontractor simply working at the hospital.  Please join us in praying for favor as we continue to contact all the various doctors to set up payment plans.  Some have been accomodating so far and some haven't. 

Perhaps we'll have him paid off by the time he's in college?

Daddy's Shoes

Back at our WV shower, James' Mom gave us a pair of James' shoes to have Hudson wear. They were a little pair of brown leather moccasins. Her only wish was that we took pictures to document his wearing of the shoes, which we happily obliged.

Behold the centerfold shot :)

A close-up of the shoes.  They were about 1/4 inch too long for Hudson but were almost too narrow for his fat foot.

Hudson, after his modeling debut.  I don't think he enjoyed all the fuss - haha.

Holiday Week

Hudson's First Holiday - Independence Day - was this week.

He celebrated in style with this cute onesie our friend Ms. Melissa gave him.

We headed to Mr. & Mrs. B's house for the actual holiday.  Somehow the only photo I got was of the B's cat, Sagan stalking Hudson.  He was quite curious of this little "squeak toy."  The B's dog, Trixie was also curious and quite protective of Hudson.  She did NOT like it when he cried!  This was Hudson's first exposure to animals (other than our two little fish) so we're thankful he wasn't scared.

The day after the 4th, our friends the McD's came over for a visit.

Here's Mama McD with Miss E holding Hudson.  Miss E will be a great little mama one day - she was very attentive to Hudson. 

Miss L with Hudson.  Somehow Miss M (the oldest McD girl) missed out on getting her picture made.  They'll have to come back so I can rectify the lack of Miss M and Hudson pictures!
