Meet Baby Hudson

Meet Baby Hudson, the newest member of our family. Although she’s only been “out of mommy’s tummy” (as Milo loves to say) for three weeks, she fits right in and we cannot imagine our family without her.

I’ve shared a few peeks of her on my Facebook Page, like my favorite image here. It seems like most of my favorites of her so far were taken in the hospital. It was a special time as it was sunny outside, light pouring into our room. And having a 48 hour stay, meant we had some time for snuggles and to take a few photos.

The kids came to visit us in the hospital and it couldn’t have been more special and tear jerking. My parents were amazing and didn’t tell the kids that mommy had the baby yet. So when they came in, they were surprised to see baby was here. And we got to announce to them “Meet Baby Hudson, your sister.” Milo was all smiles and couldn’t get enough of his new sister. It brought Derek and I to tears to see how much he loved her right away. I feel blessed that friend and workshop graduate Rachel came to the hospital to capture this special time for us, the kids meeting their sibling. These next two images are priceless.

We also had some newborn photos done. These are two of my favorites of our little family, captured by Miss Freddy. As you can see, both kids are pretty smitten with Hudson.

We had finished her nursery just a few days before she was born. It was Derek’s idea – he wanted a Star Wars themed nursery. I agreed as long as it was gender neutral (since we didn’t know what we were having, obviously) and that I got a chevron wall. He complied. I thought the perfect way to complete the nursery would be to add a themed newborn photo. Once Hudson arrived, I got to work and made a special hat for a special photo shoot. What do you think?!

The last photo I will share (for now) is her “Sheepy” photo. I never knew what we were starting when Derek and I first captured Milo on this sheep 4 years ago. But the sheep is now featured in their monthly photos. And just because Hudson is a 3rd child, it is a tradition we couldn’t skip on. I wanted to show you how they all compare. Top Left: Milo, Bottom Left: Sawyer, Right: Hudson. Hudson wasn’t going to fall asleep on sheepy but I still love the image! (Note: Derek was right beside all 3 kids when taking these shots, so no baby was put at risk for the sake of the photo).

So thank you for all of the love and support we have received while welcoming our newest family member. It has been a journey getting her here and I feel so thankful to have her in my arms. Don’t worry, many more photos of her (and the older two kids) will be shared in due time! But for now, I just wanted you to meet baby Hudson!

February Digital Project Life

February Digital Project Life

February was a more quiet month for us. It was all about preparation for baby to arrive and dealing with several rounds of colds and pink eye.

This first spread will go back in January, but I had to share it! I included a few of my favorite images from my maternity session with TAustin Photography. While larger images will go on our walls, I wanted to have a few of them right in our yearly album.

Digital Project Life, Coral Edition, Documenting LifeThe first week in February, Sawyer helped me set up for my Valentine’s Day mini sessions. And since we were sick the rest of the week, we thought that doing some baking would help pass the time. I even had Derek take the camera so I could go in a photo with the kids! Check out the recipe for those Vegan Cookie Dough Truffles!
Digital Project Life, Coral Edition, Documenting LifeThe next week was my long weekend away to Whidbey Island! It was just what I needed for a little pre-baby rejuvenation. I even found a cute little end table in an antique shop that I painted to go in my living room! Since this week was photo light, I decided to add in a few of my favorite things the kids were doing/saying right now!Digital Project Life, Coral Edition, Documenting LifeStill dealing with colds, I found a new way of getting the kids to eat something – adding color to their yogurt. They were also learning about mixing colors to make other colors. Win-win. We had a few sunny days, so we spent some time outside, and I even managed a 37 week bump photo (since I was gone during 36 weeks).
Digital Project Life, Coral Edition, Documenting LifeThe last week in February was all about finishing the nursery (painting a crib takes FOREVER!). Sawyer transitioned into a big girl bed, and friends and family threw a “sprinkle” (baby shower) for me.

I am still loving doing a weekly Digital Project Life spread (or two if required). It helps me stay up to date and makes getting photos into an album seem less daunting.
