It's finally time to let the cat out the bag! We have another little baby on the way and could not be more EXCITED!!! Last Wednesday Justin and I went to our big ultrasound and we saw this perfect little person:
ultras_001.jpgI'm 18 weeks along and it's becoming quite hard to hide the growing baby bump, so I'm super excited to finally embrace it and let the world know of our family's joy! This has been quite an emotional roller coaster, what a wonderful blessing it was to see a healthy strong little baby on the ultrasound monitor!
We also got to find out the sex of this little Lyon! If you want to know what it is, watch this little video:
We TRULY feel blessed for this wonderful opportunity to bring another child into our lives! God has been so good to us and we are eternally grateful for His willingness and trust in us to let us raise this little spirit in our family! This little Lyon is due to arrive mid-September!

Anyway, congrats!!! A girl is going to be so fun!

I say this every year & I'll say it again...where does the time go?! How in the WORLD do I already have a 6 year old?! What an AMAZING kid Hudson has turned out to be, I always knew he'd be great, but he's exceeded any of mine & Justin's expectations by far! I am the most lucky & blessed person in the world to have this kid call me mom!
Like tradition, here are some fun little bits & pieces about Hudson since his last birthday post:

1. He is already super tall, he comes all the way to my armpit, I bet by the time he turns ten he'll be taller than me!
2. Got his first pair of glasses this year! He looks like a stud in them too!
3. Loves anything electronic (ie. video games, my laptop, the ipad).
4. Loves anything that has to do with Dinosaurs (T-rex is his absolute favorite).
5. Loves anything to do with Super Mario Brothers.
6. Loves anything to do with Legos.
7. Loves coloring and drawing, he's really into art right now!
8. His favorite kind of book to get from the library is not a story book, he likes to get informational books. He enjoys learning about the human heart, or snakes, sharks, and spiders.
9. Still loves raw mushrooms to snack on, but for sure his favorite snack is string cheese or a Mrs. Fields m&m cookie!
10. Has discovered that he's special because he is double jointed in his fingers.
11. Always is really good about taking his little brother Sloan under his wing and making Sloan feel protected when scared.
12. Favorite pass time is to build a fort with dad!
13. Is really good and fast at riding his razor.
14. Has learned how to read & write words, it amazes me what 7 months of kindergarten can do for a kid!
15. Is super affectionate with the whole family, loves to give kisses & hugs! Sometimes Sloan has to run away from Hudson's kisses, "Mooooooom, Hudson is using his kisses as weapons again!" LOL!
16. Has had fun participating in basketball & soccer this year.
17. Is the best at telling me what he learns everyday in detail, the kid absorbs information like his father!
18. His favorite ride at Disneyland is Big Thunder Mountain because he's tall enough to ride it!

hudson6_003.jpgHad to take a few pics of Sloan too, he was being exceptionally photogenic!
hudson6_004.jpghudson6_005.jpghudson6_006.jpgHudson looks SO big here!
Happy happy birthday Hudson dear, your dad and I love you more than you'll ever know!

Happy Birthday to your little Hudson. Those glasses are adorable on him. P.S. You should bring him to the Indianapolis Children's Museum-it is the largest children's Museum in the world, and he would go nuts in Dinosphere. It is amazing. They have a little dig site, a paleontologist lab that you can watch them working on actual fossils, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff. I know my little guy will be 6 before I know it. He wil be turning 4 in just a few how the time flies. Best to you and your sweet little family.
