Hudson Alexander Pettijohn

We are so very very proud to introduce you to our sweet tiny, our 8 lb 1 oz tiny :)

Hudson Alexander Pettijohn
August 5th, 2009
8 lbs 1 oz
20 1/2 inches long
My labor was textbook {post-epidural} and I was so fortunate to have gone from 1-10 centimeters in just 6 hours on my own!! After 30 minutes of pushing we met our son. Our doctor could just not believe how fast he came! He was ready to see the world---and this mommy and daddy are more than willing to show it to him ♥
He is a clone of his daddy, with his momma's lips! Just about the only contribution I made to this precious child. We are in awe of the miracle that he is, so perfect and ours. It is a love that you cannot explain, beyond any any any love we have ever experienced. Last night we snuggled with him and kept saying that it felt like we've known him forever, our baby boy. Mommy's tiny pea pod :)
I just sit and stare at him and have a really hard time laying him down to sleep, because we end up just wanting to hold him forever. My heart could explode right now, August 5th is the greatest day of JR and I's life!!! Welcome to the world, Hudson. You are loved more than you could ever ever know.

JR and I also thank you ALL for so many prayers and well wishes. We have really been looking forward to sharing him with you, and appreciate so much your sweet words/phone calls/messages...we love you.

He even has his daddy's hair. That's impressive! Like I told Nancy, J.R. I have must have some strong genes. It's also impressive you are able to blog about it already. These pics are much better than all those tiny cellphone pics, although I appreciated those greatly.

Alright, enough rambling. Congrats to all 3 of you, and I can't wait to see that little guy. Luke is also excited to see his new cousin. :)
