Falling Behind

I have been a terrible blogger lately.  For one reason, we have been incredibly busy.  For another reason, I have still been in a blogging funk.  Hudson has become so much fun and these past few months and is so...busy and on the go non-stop.  I'm trying to soak up every moment, I know he will only be small for a short time.  He's changing so fast.  I'm so thankful to be home with him everyday -even days he makes me crazy.  

 A couple of weeks ago, we got a sweet visit from Brian's Grandparents and his Dad.  They spend the winter in Florida and then come back to Indiana in late April every year.  Brian's Dad drives them back and forth.  They stopped and visited for a little while.  It was so great seeing them.  They really are salt of the Earth.
Love this picture of everyone!

Great Grandma got Hudson a pinwheel and he absolutely loves it!  He still blows on it everyday and has everyone else blow on it, too.
Hudson wants to be big like Daddy and is ready to start shaving
Hudson loves the hose!!!!!
Helping Daddy clean the garage
Hudson was collecting rocks and sticking them in his bibs
Hudson took a nasty fall a few weeks ago and got a pretty nasty cut on his chin - poor guy - April was a rough month

Super cool dudes wearing shades

I turned 32 on May 3.  Brian had arranged for some of our friends to babysit Hudson and took me on a really nice date.  We had a great time.   I'm so thankful for a great past year.  I'm loving this decade.  
Hudson very sweetly grabbed my hand the other day and held it while we watched some cartoons.  Moments like that melt my heart.  

Lunch with friends after church - I love that the two boys are in plaid shirts.
1st haircut --I may have started to tear up when I saw how much he looks like a little boy.  We took him to a great place that has a big slide and cool seats to sit in.
Hudson got to sit in the airplane and watch Curious George
It was funny - he was pretty ticklish when she was shaving him.
Thankfully he sat still and acted like a big boy
Brian also took a lot of pictures- we were some serious paparazzi
The girl cutting his hair was really sweet and quick
At one point he started to tear up, but then he pulled it together and started smiling again
Handsome little guy - he looks older, but his face looks chubbier - I love it!  She gave him a cute little faux hawk-so...cute!
They gave him a balloon at the end and he thought he was Hot Stuff
Afterwards, we went over to some friend's house and had a cookout.  The boys loved playing in the sandbox

Whew!  That was a lot to catch up on.  We're loving the warmer weather and all the time we're getting to spend outside.  


  1. Happy Belated Birthday! Hudson looks so cute sporting his new haircut.

    Is that a for sale sign I saw in one of the pictures? Are you guys moving?

  2. Thanks for the sweet birthday wishes! -Yes, we just listed our house last week which is mostly the reason our lives are busy - we were busy trying to get it ready to list and now we've had a lot of showings (thankfully) so it's been stressful to keep an 18 month old from making too many messes. We are hoping to move closer to church, friends, and Brian's work. We're planning on staying in Lexington for another couple of years.


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
