(Hudson's hair really only fell out on the sides, which left him with a pretty sweet 'do!)
When I found out Hudson was going to be a boy, I'll admit I was just a little disappointed. Well, I should qualify that: Until that point, I had convinced myself that I was pregnant with another girl. I even had a dream in which I saw my new baby girl's face in the car seat that we already owned, and she was speaking in complete sentences; so I just knew that not only were we having another girl, but she was also going to be a genius! I was so sure that I had almost started buying some new baby girl clothes that I found too cute to pass up. So when the ultrasound made it clear to the nurse that I was, in fact, pregnant with a boy, I was shocked. I mean, of course when I saw that little baby moving around in the ultrasound, how could I be anything but thrilled and excited and so in love? I was so in love. But I gave myself a day to wrap my head around the idea of having a boy and completely shift gears. And I may have informed my husband that we would not be finished having kids until we gave Reese a sister...or until we got to 10 kids, whichever comes first.
Hmm, I did not mean to get so far off on this tangent. I just meant to say that I could not be happier to have this sweet little guy in our family and am thrilled at the bond forming between sister and brother. First thing in the morning when I get Hudson out of his bed, he looks for Reese and smiles ear to ear and kicks his feet when he sees her. And Reese insists on giving Hudson a kiss when he gets out of bed to greet him properly. She takes a lot of pride in being Hudson's big sister and loves fulfilling that role.
Hudson is learning new tricks every day. He has mastered many yoga moves including down dog and plank. He has a really strong core.
