Hudson's Birth Story

Hudson Eli Smith was born on Monday, March 9th at 1:09pm via C section at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.  He weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces, measured 18 inches long and had a full head of reddish/blonde hair!  We are thrilled to welcome him into our lives and to complete our little family.

 
 
 He was taken directly from the OR to the level 4 NICU in the west tower.  Jarrod was able to go along to get him settled.
 
 
Happy Birthday sweet boy!  :)

 
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
your works are wonderful; I know that full well.  -Psalm 139:13&14

Hudson's baby shower

In anticipation of Hudson's grand arrival the women's ministry team at our church hosted a lovely baby shower for us.  Everything was precious  - down to every last detail! 
 
 
 The d├ęcor simply brought tears to my eyes when I arrived.  The refreshments, games  and company were all so perfect and memorable! 
 


The table centerpieces were small nursery books with matching stuffed animals.  They sent me home with all of it!  We were also so grateful to receive tons of diapers, wipes, teeny tiny clothes and much needed baby gear.
 


I loved these sweet personalized cookies made by my friend Shoa at Red Barn Bakery!  They were almost too beautiful to eat {but were, of course, delicious}!!


 Our church family is a huge blessing to us and Baby Hudson is already loved by so many!  Thank you to everyone who had a part in making this a special day XOXO
