We're Home...All SIX of us!
Hendrickville just got a little bit bigger today.
We arrived to the house to find a sweet welcome.
Balloons, signs, notes and a mack daddy, pimp my crib, pack n play set up in our bedroom.
What wonderful people we have in our life!
We left town with no computer, so this week has been hard to keep up with everyone.
We're emotionally and physically spent, but so thankful.
The placement was yesterday (Tuesday) but we spent last night in Galveston.
I could not have imagined getting Hudson and then sticking him in a car seat forever.
I wanted to hold him! I got my wish since Hudson slept all of NO hours last night! He's a little mixed up on the day/night thing.
A baby does precious things to a household.
We'll write more about the delivery, our days of waiting and hanging out as a family in Galveston, and about the placement.
We'll slowly answer emails.
Right now, we're so tired and ready to be here, at home, introducing Hudson to all of our sounds and smells. I'm also trying to get this crazy form of breast feeding down. Yikes!
I am overcome with thanksgiving...and joy...and peace...and contentment every time I think of that.
Please continue to pray for our birth mom.
She's home today with no baby to hold.
Her body is broken and will forever carry the scars of the child she carried for 9 months, but no longer holds.
It will take a long time to heal.
Her milk will be coming in, with no baby to feed.
Here are some of my favorite pictures.
We'll post more soon. Aunt Lynsey is coming here with her camera tonight. I'll have some great pictures of our little man soon.
