Botanical Gardens!

Today we spent a few hours at the Botanical Gardens here in Huntsville and we had such a wonderful time! We’ve not been there since the 1st year that we moved here and we just walked around that time. Well right now they have the tree house exhibit going on and it was so cool! Several different people have created these tree houses and they have maybe 6 or 7 of them around the gardens. They were so much fun! We met some friends of ours over there and that made it even more fun to walk around and let the kiddos play together. We will definitely be going back!

Hudson in his new shades. He is one cool dude!

The first tree house we visited was like a big boat and it had 2 swings hanging from it. Emma loves anything that involves swinging!

Another little swing that was super wobbly!

What Emma does best these days-pick her nose! ha ha. Poor thing digs for stuff all day long. She’s had a runny nose for a week now.

Hudson and one of his girlfriends Grace. She is 2 months older than him and super adorable! Love her big smile!

One of the Pollard boys, Logan. He is a couple of months younger than Emma and cute as a button!

And at the end of the day Emma got to play in the rock water. She was soaked and tried to take her pants down! Luckily I caught her before they were on the ground but it was funny.

If you haven’t been there you should check it out! There were so many people there today and tons of moms with strollers. Fun fun!

Gorgeous Weather!

We’ve spent most of the day outside and I’m loving it! We met George at Tommy’s Pizza (my fav!) for lunch and then it was off to Dublin Park. Emma loves that place so much. We spent about 2 hours there and then I had to make her leave. At least she doesn’t put up too much of a fight. Tomorrow is supposed to be 80 and then Thursday 82 degrees!!! I can’t believe it. Our family is so ready for summer and swimming!

Emma on the pink swing!

Hudson even got to try out the swings today! I barely pushed him but he enjoyed it. He is not a fan of the bright sun but he did super. I need to get him a cute little baby hat and some cool shades. :)

He wouldn’t look up b/c it was so bright.

Check out his sweet little smile. Love my little man!

Tomorrow I hope to take Emma to Kidventure for their Easter egg hunt and to play. She just loves getting out of the house & playing with other little kids. It’s so cute to watch her follow the big kids around and play with them. More pics to come!

Hudson at 4 Months!

My sweet little man turned 4 months old on March 23rd and he is growing like a weed. He is so incredibly good and just the easiest baby ever! Here’s a few things that Hudson is doing at 4 months:

  • weighs 15 lbs (50th percentile)
  • over 25 inches long (75th percentile)
  • got 2 shots and drank the rotavirus stuff & hardly cried
  • wearing 6-9 month clothing
  • size 2 diapers (huggies & pampers)
  • loves his baths!
  • tried rice cereal on Thursday March 25th and gobbled it up!
  • likes to sit in the jumparoo for a few minutes and moves around/grabs for the toys
  • started grabbing for toys in the past 2 weeks
  • still not rolling over and not a big fan of tummy time
  • had started taking 5-7 oz of formula about 3ish weeks ago but after his shots that has decreased to 3-4.5 oz
  • still sleeping through the night from about 8:30pm-6:30-7:30am

I know there is more but I can’t think right now. He’s just a happy baby and loves watching his sister play. Here’s a few more pics from today!

Gummy Smile!

Have I mentioned lately that Hudson is the most adorable little man I’ve ever seen? :) He just could not get any more perfect in my opinion. Such a dollface and I’m loving every single minute of this little dude.

Yesterday Daddy was playing with him and Hudson just adores his daddy! I’m loving these pictures!

And a couple more of Emma playing outside…

We’ve got 2 sweet sweet kids!

And the newest addition to our family-the 2010 Honda Odyssey!!!!! Now that we have 2 kids we really needed a mini van for all of our trips to TN, vacations, and just lugging stuff around town. We finally decided on the Odyssey and I got my favorite car color-dark gray! So far I am loving it but I’ve only driven it home. It has lots of buttons and stuff that I need to play with and I can’t wait to haul stuff in it. She’s a beauty!

The Babies!

I’m slacking on the blog pictures! My family keeps me reminding me that they look all the time for new pictures but there aren’t any. Somehow my little monkeys keep me occupied all day long. :) Enjoy these pictures for now and tomorrow I’ve got several more!

Emma being a princess last week. She loves to put on dresses and twirl around!

Hudson spending a few minutes in the jumparoo!

Today Northrop Grumman had their annual easter egg hunt. Emma had a blast and got tons of candy!

Poor thing kept pulling her pants up b/c they are too big! She kept walking around grabbing onto the back. :)

Showing off her eggs!

Such a cutie!

Check out those eyes!

I’ve got some super cute pictures of Hudson but will share those tomorrow. Also, we bought our 1st mini van today!!! We got a 2010 Honda Odyssey and I LOVE it! Pics of it to come!

And We're Back!

I haven’t felt like blogging the past several days but I am back! We were busy last week with dr’s appts at the end of the week and didn’t do too much over the weekend. Hudson saw Dr. Dudley on Wednesday for something and he weighed 14 lbs 2 oz! Such a chunk! Then Emma saw Dr. Judy on Thursday for a check up and her lungs sounded great. We get to cut back on her Symbicort to once a day and we go back in 4 months. He is talking about cutting her dosage in half too since she’s on the highest dose right now and maybe next summer she will get to come off it completely! They won’t take her off during the winter months so that’s why there is no possibility until next year. We always love going to Dr. Judy & Dr. Mahesh’s office!

Now on to the pictures…

Emma is still obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba and the other day she drew these pictures all by herself and did the writing. I was feeding Hudson and had to take a pic when I saw it! This is her version of YGG and she tried to write their names. :)

Emma had mommy draw them last week while Kelsey was here and I really think Emma’s look much better!

Hudson in his bath last night. He loves to splash & kick his legs & we end up making a huge mess on the bathroom floor!

Some tummy time today! He’s getting so much better.

And some cute faces of miss Emma! Such a character as always!

Bubbly!

I’m absolutely loving this amazing weather! I really hope it doesn’t get cold again. I might just cry. :) My cousin Kelsey came down today and is spending a couple days of her spring break with us. She informed me earlier that the only reason she came down was so she could eat some sushi. They don’t have any good sushi places back in Cookeville so she drove 3 hours just to get some. What a stinker! We were going to go to Surin’s in Madison but I’ve talked her in to going to the hibachi grill on County Line Rd. I’m so excited! Love the hibachi!

Today we spent some time outside but then we told Emma it was too hot so we had to come inside. How funny is that?! Hudson did not like the brightness outside. I don’t know what we are gonna do this spring/summer when Emma wants to go out and Hudson wants to be in. We’ll cross that bridge later. Now enjoy some pics from today!

Hudson chillaxin in the stroller…

Emma & Kelsey had fun making art on our driveway…

It was Kelsey’s bright idea to trace Emma’s body! Emma didn’t mind!

Bubble time! She loves her some bubbles!

So cute!

I love her sweet little laughs and that big smile!

Thanks for looking! I’m hoping it doesn’t rain tomorrow so we can roam around Bridgestreet. If it is nice outside they will have the carousel open and emma can ride the teacups. Oh and I’m loving the yogurt place! So yummy!

New Pictures of Hudson

Hudson is growing so fast! I put him on the scale with me a few days ago and he weighed 15 lbs! We go back to Dr. Dudley on the 25th I think so that’ll be exciting! He is more awake these days but still sleeping through the night. Love that! He’s such a momma’s boy and super sweet. :) Enjoy some new pics from last week! Oh and pics of Emma are coming soon!

Wearing his alphabet shirt

He has big baby blues just like his sister!

Daddy loving on Hudson after work! Our favorite time of day!

Last night G and I went to the Wizard of Oz at the VBC. Our friend Mark plays trumpet in the show so he hooked us up with free tickets! It was awesome! The show was super funny. I yawned almost the entire time and struggled to stay awake but I was just so tired. It was a long day yesterday. After the show we got to visit with Mark for a few minutes and tonight George is going to hang out with him after the show. Our amazing friends Ashli & BJ watched the monkeys for us and put them both to bed. They are so brave! I was so worried about leaving them both at bedtime but they did wonderful. Thanks Ashli & BJ for being so wonderful to us!!! It is so nice to get out of the house & have adult time.

That’s about it for now. Hopefully going to enjoy this nice weather for a few days and my cousin Kelsey is planning on coming down next week on her spring break. Super excited for that!

Hudson & Hayden!

Today we went to Chad & Jessica’s house to play with Hayden. Hayden arrived 5 days before Hudson and we share the same OB. She came out with a head full of dark hair and is just the sweetest little thing! Her Hudson are about the same size and just so darling together. She is Hudson’s other girlfriend b/c he already has two. :)

Hayden has some gorgeous blue eyes!

Look how cute they are! I could just love on them all day long!

Just chillaxin!

Both babies were laying on the floor at one point and chewing on their fist!

LOVE her eyes!

They are both a little wobbly!

“Mom, she’s invading my space!”

Awww, so so so sweet! Oh I just me some babies!
