Spring break!!!

Well, Spring break came and went very quickly. I have almost finished my first week back after the break. The first few days were difficult getting back into the swing of things. It was great to have a week off and I feel truly blessed that I got to spend a full week home with my little one. The week was spent doing some odds and ends around the house, painting the dining room and my favorite (other than hanging out with Hud) was going to the Body Worlds exhibit. If you ever get a chance to go, you MUST. It was absolutely unbelievable to see all the different body parts.

Hudson is getting super big, we got to the dr. for his 4month appt next week. It will be interesting to see all his new "stats". One of his favorite things is to stand, bend his knees and straighten them very quickly. I think he is trying to jump....but he just can't get off the ground. He is talking/making sounds more and more each day. We love having him around. He often entertains us and is constantly reminding us that we cannot do anything on our own. I understand now more than ever why people say that having kids will change how you view the Lord.

I can't wait for the weekend so that I have more time to spend with Hudson....we will have to get some more facial shots up soon.

Thursday photo (We will be gone tomorrow)

We love you Nana!

The past few weeks have been a difficult one for our family. When we were in the hospital for Hudson's birth we found out my Nana had cancer. The past 3 months she fought with all that she had. On February 27 she went home to be with the Lord. We will miss her dearly. We were able to head to the Woodlands to see her the weekend before she passed away and she got to give Hudson some kisses, I will always remember his short time with her. It has been difficult for me to realize that Hudson will never get to know Nana, she was such a huge part of my life. Although we are sad that she is gone, I am happy that she is now with the Lord worshiping Him constantly, sharing stories with the saints.

We were able to go to The Woodlands for the funeral. The funeral was rough, but I know that it was exactly what Nana would have wanted and for me it was a time of worship as I listened to people share about my Nana and her relationship with our Savior. Almost all of our family was able to come to town. We had an incredible time with family. In the midst of grieving we were also able to find joy in spending time with one another. I feel truly blessed to have the family that I have.
