Ok, so here are some pictures from the boys and their surgery last Wednesday. They both did GREAT! Hudson just had tubes put in his ears so he went first. The surgery itself only took about 3 minutes and he was back to us in about 10 minutes!!! After he nursed, he was back to himself in about 45 minutes. It is amazing at how fast this surgery is!!! Cooper was next and since he was having tubes put in and his adenoids removed, this surgery took just a little longer (about 10 minutes). He was so luppy (sp???) from all of the medicine, that he was cracking us all up. He would say things and then just start laughing. It was a great stress reliever for me!!!! Once we took him back for the surgery, Ms. Lori (his nurse and my mom's new WONDERFUL sister-in-law) gave him a net hat to play with. He had it on his face, on Chris, on myself and even on his Froggie. He thought that this was hilarious. Anyways here are some pictures from the day. Even though it was a simple surgery, I am SO glad that it is over and that my boys are ok!!!

This was his gas "space" mask. He told us that he had to breath into it and then he would "go to space!"

Pixs from a couple of weeks ago... before sickness

Well, we have had a rough couple of weeks. Hudson had an ear infection (#4) so we went to the doctor on Wednesday and they decided that his ears were SO BAD that they were going to give him 3 rocephin shots. He had one shot every day and hopefully this was going to "try " and improve his ears, at least until his surgery. While at the doctor (every afternoon for 3 days) he picked up some nasty virus which caused him to spike a high fever. Luckily his fever is gone and the surgery can go ahead as planned!!! Anyways, both Cooper and Hudson are having surgery early in the morning. Cooper is having tubes put in again as well as his adnoids removed while Hudson is just having tubes put in. I am very excited that both of my boys are having this surgery b/c hopefully they BOTH will feel much better afterwards, but I am EXTREMELY nervous about the surgery. Please pray for both boys and that their surgery and
recovery goes well.

On a happier note, these pictures are from a couple of weeks ago (pre-illness). Hudson loved riding in the wagon and Cooper loved pulling him around! Cooper is such a great big brother! I am lucky to have two wonderful boys!!

I think that this is hilarious! Hudson loves sticking his tongue out and making noises!
It is so cute!
I guess that this is where Hudson learned his tongue thing!

Happy Valentines Day

I am so blessed! I have a wonderful husband and two wonderful children. Chris sent me these beautiful tulips (my favorite) and came home with a jacket from Ann Taylor. I was totally shocked and I must admit, I was pretty impressed! I just wanted to share how thankful I am to have 3 wonderful men in my life!!

My 3 Valentines!!!

Just Swinging

Since the weather has been so nice the past couple of days, we have taken advantage of it and played outside most every afternoon! Hudson is now old enough to swing and he LOVES it!! Cooper is having a hard time sharing this swing. He really like for his Daddy to push him HIGH and he has to be in the baby swing to do it. Fortunately he lets Hudson swing for a little while and then he wants Hudson to "Get out so Cooper can have a turn!" Anyways, we hope that you have enjoyed this nice weather! We can't wait for Spring!!!!!

Sick Babies

We have had another rough week here at our house. Poor guys just cannot seem to get over their colds (which turn to ear infections, sinus infections, etc.; we have an appointment with the ENT on Monday to see about putting another set of tubes back in Cooper's ears and Hudson's first set in his ears). Anyways, I kept Cooper home from school on Thursday to get some extra rest and he sat like this for most of the morning watching tv and wanting to read books. I am SO ready for Spring! I am tired of my babies not feeling well!!!! Feeling a little better in Mommy and Daddy's bed.

Hudson resting (supposed to be asleep) in his crib.
This was Hudson at his 6 month check-up. We went for his check-up 2 weeks ago, but he was sick so they decided not to give him his shots. Well today since he was feeling a little better (minus the 3rd ear infection in a month and a half and a running nose) he got his lovely shots. I have to say that he was a trooper. He only cried for about 10 seconds and then he was finished. I think that it helped to have big brother and Nana their to entertain him! Anyways, he weighs 18 lbs., 15 oz (92%) and is 27 1/2 inches in length (off the charts for his age). Needless to say, he is growing just fine! He is really wanting to crawl. He pushes his leg around behind him when he is sitting and tries to move forward. I think that we may have an early crawler on our hands. Looks like life with a stationary child may end sooner than we had hoped!:)
My little Budha Baby! (check out those roles)

Long Time No Post

These are just some random pictures from the past couple of weeks that I thought I would share!
Hudson now sticks his tongue out at us!

Cooper and his freind Riley. They are moving to Virginia in a couple of weeks and I know that Cooper will really miss Riley!
