Well we are now a family of 4!! Hudson Christopher Jones joined our family at 2:08 Thursday afternoon! He weighed 8lbs., 11oz. and was 21 inches long! Everyone is doing great and he is such a blessing to our family! Cooper is doing really well with him and is constantly wanting to hug and kiss him! He loves his baby brother! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband and two great children! Life with two kids is great, but it is already a big adjustemnt! I just want to say a big thank you to all of our family and friends who have helped us out! We could not have gotten through this week without you all!!
This is the first time Cooper saw his baby brother!

The proud BIG BROTHER!!

My "3" favorite men!!!

This is one of my favorite pictures of Hudson!! Isn't he cute!!

Hudson's Nursery!

Well, we have some good baby news!! I went to the doctor on Monday and he said that Hudson could come at any time now, but just in case he doesn't we planned an induction for Thursday morning at 7:30!! It is hard to believe that he will be here in 2 days or less! We are very excited, but a little apprehensive too!!! Our worlds are about to totally change! Please keep us in your prayers over the next couple of days! When everything settles down, I will post some pictures of our new family! Hope everyone is doing well!!
Also, we finally got the nursery finished!!! I thought you may want to see what it looks like!
Now we are just waiting on Hudson!!!!

More pool time!

Chris and I took this picture a week ago. I think that it is so funny! I keep giving Chris a hard time telling him that the weight gaining is now supposed to taper off, but as you can see on both of us, it hasn't!!! Chris would die if he knew I posted this picture! HA!Cooper loves swimming in his new floatie! I know that it is so ugly, but it works GREAT!!! He can swim all over the pool by himself. It is so much better that having to hold him the entire time we are in the pool!

Happy 4th!!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! We started celebrating on Sunday with our annual bike parade at church. There were so many cute wagons, bikes, scooters, etc. Cooper loved watching all of the kids ride around in their red, white and blue!! The following pictures are from Pops in th Park. Every year the symphony
plays a free concert and then there are wonderful fireworks following the
concert. As you can see in the background, it was very crowded. We meet
up with a big group from church and had a great time!Cooper decided that he needed to salute the flag too when they played the National Anthem.
(he did this on his own once he saw everyone else doing it!)

Aren't they cute!

Patiently waiting for the fireworks!
