living life with Hudson

Update: We are now home, this post was started on Friday and my doctor came into examine me while I was blogging and he laughed so hard that while my babe slept I took to blogging :) He wasn't aware of how serious a blogger this patient is!

It's Friday morning, feeling like we've been at the hospital for two weeks...so anxious to get this babe home. We're running on maybe a combined 8 hours of sleep out of the last 48 but it's never felt this good to be so tired.
our angel baby, the most kissable face in the world


I haven't left this room in two days, and tried to coax myself out just to see people or the outside world and I just can't. I can't leave my baby.

The grandparents are smitten with this baby kitten and it is such a joy to watch our parents completely melt at the sight of this new babe.

Yesterday afternoon Hudson just went round...

and around...

and around...

All day was a constant flow of nurses, naps, and FEEDINGS!!!

Again, something I could go into so much detail about but will spare you the milky bits---nursing him was my utmost goal outside of succesfully delivering him. Forever thankful to Marlene, the nurse on shift yesterday for finally showing me how to provide for my sweet tiny. Once I got it, he got it and we had some champion meals that make my heart full knowing I am all he needs in nourishment.

*UPDATE* I am fearful my nips are going to fall off, we're in the "toughening up" stage. eeesh.

In fact, he ate SO well yesterday he turned into the cutest and floppiest pea pod after his meals so mommy took advantage and played dress up! I was tired of seeing him in hospy shirts. {not to mention, that double chin is to die for}

He got a very special visit from his Aunt K and ended up just gazing at her and loving on her.

There is a transformation in the love for your spouse that comes with bringing a baby into this world. So much takes over your heart knowing that this sweet babe was made by you two and carefully brought into this world by Him. It makes you a kind of thankful you've never experienced. I'm not sure that I could be any more blessed.

The sound of my son's cry and my husband comforting him is the sweetest sound in my house.

This post has taken me 3 days to complete, and I have so much more to say. It's been an eventful couple of days so I leave with a few pictures of our sweet angel baby until I get a shower in a maybe even a nap...wishful thinking.

Bringing him home ♥

He is toooooooo cute.. I just want to eat up his little baby rolls with a spoon (but I won't because I'm not a cannibal and I'm sure you and JR wouldn't appreciate that) lol...

Oh, my! He is so seriously cute, it's not even funny. I haven't met you in person (but feel like I know you!), but I think his lips are all your's. Am I right?!

So happy for you guys.

{And as far as the nips go, slather on that Lansinoh - and invest in some nipple shields, if you need to!}

What a doll, You guys I'm sure are so proud!
I can only imagine what its like to sit in a hospital room for days but it looks like you learned a few things about BFing and so thats great that he is drinking well. Your pics of the fam and you and your hubby and Hudson are so sweet.

Congratulations.

Petite Maman said...

Okay, so even though I'm in a way different time zone and don't even know you, I've been waiting for this homecoming update--thanks for blogging from your hospital bed!! Also, hang in there with the nursing--it might get to the point where you stifle screams, but I promise you that the pain will subside in two weeks, and it will be hands-down one of the best experiences the Lord gives you on this earth. Congratulations on your beautiful family!
