On July 27, 2009, my life forever changed as I welcomed my son into the world. After many, many hours of labor, Huddy decided to join us. He scared the doctor, the nurses, his daddy and his mom that day. I will never forget the doctor counting to three after my final push and waiting on that cry. It was the scariest moment in my life as they rushed my sweet baby to a table on the far side of the room and finally I heard him cry. Hudson was born with his cord wrapped around his neck three times and was extra "smurfy" blue. I will never forget his daddy bouncing, literally bouncing around the room in joy after that first cry.
The first few moments were almost unreal I was so elated and I also remember the excitement on our families faces as they entered the room. Huddy immediately knew my mom's voice when she spoke. It amazed me in those first few hours how quickly his personality began to shine.
The past two years of my life have brought surprises, fear, excitement, joy, anger, laughter and above all a love that I didn't know I was capable of feeling. Huddy keeps his mum (this is what he is currently calling me) on her toes. He is such an amazing little boy and holds a special place in so many hearts. He lights up a room and has the ability to bring laughter when it is most needed. I love him more than I know how to explain.
Now for a few highlights of the past two years through pictures....and trust me he has had a few pictures made haha

I could add pictures for days of Huddy but all of these jumped out to me today. I miss my little baby but I love my little boy even more each day. Each day brings a new milestone and each milestone is just as exciting as the last. So I am ready for his year of being 2 :)
