On another note, one year ago today, my life changed forever. I found out I would be a mother! People say your life changes forever with kids, but mine changed so much when I found out I was pregnant.
I'll never forget the utter shock of finding out, telling Kirk in
Mexico, being so sick, keeping the secret, telling my family at the
reunion, hearing his heartbeat, telling Melinda and Portland book club (and NY friends and others), seeing his ultrasound, finding out he didn't have downs syndrome, the back pain, the cravings, sleeping on my left side, the heartburn, sitting in his room imagining a child in there, the indescribable contractions, the completely surreal delivery, and finding out it was a boy.
My sister had told me that without a child, she had been 99% happy but
with a child, her cup runneth over. What a perfect description.
Thanks to my family, my cup runneth over.

Look at Kirk's birthday shorts... And Hudson's!
By the way, I measured Hudson yesterday, and he's 27", the height of an "average" 7 and a half month old! He is "talking" up a storm - I think he has his mama's loud voice!!! :)

Hudson also laughed for the first time at his funny Aunt Tracy. And we caught it on video! Here is a video of Hudson's very first giggles ever.
If you can't get enough, here's one more. It has a funny ending, so watch the whole thing if you have time!
And he swam for the first time. Pictures are below, and I may post a video in the next few days. Enjoy!
PS I know the first one is terrible, and Hudson will have to go to therapy over it someday, but it's just so dang funny when he gets so upset and puts that lower lip out!!
