random updates

Ok so back in the first part of September we were lucky enough to go to the beach AGAIN! We went with my dad and his girlfriend and we all had such a great time! Thanks for taking us Dad/Papaw! Anyways, I wanted to share some of the pictures with you!

Ok so the next set of pictures are not from the beach but I just wanted to share these pictures. Hudson has been "feeding" himself for a while now, but just recently he is very picky about what he will let us feed him. As you can see he wanted yogurt the other day and he had to do it all by himself. Here are some pictures of my little stubborn child enjoying his yogurt!

Update on Hudson and Cooper's First Day of Preschool!

Well first of all I have GOOD news! Hudson is FINE!!! I talked to the doctor today and so far all of the test results have come back negative!!! YEAH!! Apparently he has a REALLY BAD CASE of the nasty stomach bug that is going around. We just have to watch him closely and make sure that he stays hydrated! Thanks for all of your prayers and kind thoughts through this blog as well as through all of the e-mails!

On to other news: Cooper started back to school this past Tuesday!! He LOVES it!! He walked right in and hung up his backpack and lunchbox and then sat down to start painting. I walked over to take a couple of pictures and he just looked up at me and smiled! (Much different than last year!) Anyways when I gave him a kiss he said "See you later mom. Don't forget to come back and get me!" (I do not know why he said this, I have NEVER forgot him!!) Anyways here are some pictures of my "Happy Preschooler!"He was very proud of his cow lunchbox and backpack!

Prayer Request for Hudson!!!

Please say a little prayer for Hudson! Some of you may already know but Hudson has been sick for the last couple of days. We thought Hudson had the nasty stomach bug that is going around but since he had NO FEVER they told us that he was fine just to ride it out and go about with our daily activities. Well after 2 days of hysterical crying and screaming, we decided that there was more going on than just a stomach bug. So we went to the doctor today and while we were waiting to see the doctor Hudson had FOUR poopy/diarrhea diapers (in 35 minutes). So when I told the doctor this info she immediately checked his stool and sure enough there was blood in his stool. She also checked his white blood count, which thankfully was normal. We think that we have ruled out any bacterial infections, but we now think that he may have salmonella poisoning or some other type of toxin in his bowels! :( Unfortunately their is nothing that they can do for the pain of his poor little cramping tummy. Once we left the doctor's office she sent us down to TC Thompson Children's Hospital for more detailed stool samples and hopefully we will know those results in the next couple of days. SO PLEASE say an extra prayer for our sweet boy tonight and that his tummy feels better and that we can figure out what he has so that we can treat it appropriately!!! Thanks and I will keep you updates as we know more!!!

Also today was Cooper's first day of his new preschool so I will try and post some of those pixs tomorrow! I am just too tired tonight!!!
