I had a baby!

My, oh my! Where do I begin? I had a baby and his name is Hudson. (Let the water works begin) I knew what came along with having a baby but I never thought about how overwhelming it would be. Heavenly Father is letting Justin and I take care of this sweet boy and thats A LOT of responsibility. I am constantly worrying about him and my hormones are through the roof. And oh my husband...I can't even talk about my husband. You guys, I married super Dad. SERIOUSLY! He is so amazing and so involved with everything. Luckily we get two weeks at home together taking care of the babe. I don't know what I would do without him. He lets me cry and be crazy and irrational. He is so loving and gentle with Hudson. I knew he was good with babies but WOW. I feel like I am learning a lot from him. The first week is over and we survived! It was hard and we didn't sleep but it was oh so rewarding. We have our baby and he is healthy and perfect. I can't believe he is finally here!!  I am working on the birth story because I really feel like it is something I need to write down in detail. This week it hit me that this my life. I am going to be a Mom the rest of my life and it just feels right. I have a napping Husband and a napping baby and I think I will join them now :)

The bump!

As D-day approaches, I was looking back at all my pictures of the bump. It started out SO little and now it's huge! It was so fun to look back and see it grow. Due date is February 15th... as in like 1 day away. I'm pretty sure all my posts from here on out will be posts flooded with pics of the little man. I CAN'T WAIT! Oh and yes these are all crappy iPhone pics.

This week...

I could possibly become a Mom this week! My due date is on Friday. That's 6 days away! Of course, I could go over and it could be a while but I'm hoping for sooner rather than later. It is so weird how one minute it will just be J and I, and the next minute it will be the 3 of us. It has ALWAYS just been J and I, so the thought of giving that up is really hard for me. This entire pregnancy I've been dying for this week to come and now I am kind of sad. I know things will only get better from here but it will be different. I have so many mixed emotions. I blame the hormones for sure. 

Can I just say that nesting is a real thing! I can't stop organizing and re-organizing all the baby stuff. I keep pulling it out and looking at it and making sure I have everything. I told Justin to pack a bag for the hospital and he just laughed at me! I'm like no I am serious, pack a bag! He thinks he will have plenty of time to do it once I'm in labor. That's Justin for ya. The last few days I have been feeling a ton of stretching and a lot of pressure. By the end of the night my body is so tired and I'm ready for bed but going to bed isn't very appealing because I wake up to pee AT LEAST 4 times every night. HA! I'm obviously very dramatic and these are very minor things. Overall, I feel great. J and I have been walking 2-3 miles a day and I might be waddling but I can do it and I feel good. Now we just wait... and wait and wait until the little man is ready. Oh my goodness I can't believe it's here and he will be in my arms SO soon.
