First present of the week! Today!

Oh my! I cannot believe that FIVE years ago today, at 7:14 AM, our first baby boy arrived! 9lbs 2oz, 21 inches (and that's a week early)! Well, he's kept his big boy stature and now weighs 53 lbs and who knows how tall he is? Let's just say, people think he's 6 or 7 yrs old.

We've had an amazing 5 years. I've grown up more in the last five years than I have my whole life! Having a baby has taught me patience, self-sacrafice, to let lose and not always have control, and how to love someone more than your own life. A piece of my heart walks around everyday in the body of a 5 yr old named Hudson Randale. Here's a little description of my "Sugar Bear": He's inquisitive, talkative, opinionated, a little hyper, and yet, caring & sensitive. I pray that the thing he uses the most, his mouth, will someday be used to lead others to Christ. God has given Hudson an incredible personality and I can't wait to see the path he will take and the wonderful experiences he has yet to live. I thank God everyday that He has given me the privilege of raising two of His children.

Stay tuned for more Birthday celebration! We have two parties this week and Drew's B-day in a couple of weeks.
