1 Week Old


You are 1 week old today!

1 Week Old

I've got to say, I am in shock that you are already 1 week old. And today is my due date! I'm already enjoying today so much more than a week ago.

Last night as Daddy and I were in bed trying to get you to calm down I got big time tears in my eyes. This week has gone by so fast. You are the most amazing gift we have ever received and everyday we talk about how perfect you are.

You sleep like a champ! Unfortunately, last night this caught up with us and we had a hard time getting you to go to sleep but you finally did. You only wake up 2-3 times a night.

For about a day and a half we had to supplement with formula because mommy's milk hadn't come in yet and you were a starving little boy. But now you are only breastfeeding and doing so well...with one side. The other side you are not interested in which is causing some major soreness but we are powering through. :)


At one week old you love your bouncy seat. It almost instantly puts you to sleep although you really don't need much help in that department. You have been sleeping in your crib since your first night home from the hospital. It has been so good for you and us. We swaddle you and put you in your crib and you sleep so well.

Although, without the Angel Care monitor we would not be able to do that. We love that thing!


You also love your Wubba Nub. You will put your hands over him to hold your paci in your mouth. You are so smart already!

You are still so tiny. When we left the hospital you weighted 7 pounds 1 ounce. You have the sweetest little chicken legs.

We love you beyond words Hudson. We cannot imagine life without you and we are falling more in love every day.

Happy 1 Week sweet boy!



  1. Glad things are going well and you're getting some sleep! I hope the feeding pans out well and you won't be sore anymore. Enjoy your sweet gift from God! What a miracle.

  2. Congratulations! He is beutiful!!!!

  3. The pictures are adorable! He is so handsome. We love the Angel Care monitor too... until last night when it kept freaking out on us and the alarm was going off- we ended up sprinting to Ethan's room about 3x to hear him breathing just perfectly. Scared us to death! So beware- it may randomly have a kink! :)

  4. Yah for a precious baby boy and a healthy mommy! He is adorable!!

  5. He is so precious!! BG still loves her Wubbanub. That thing is a lifesaver!!!

  6. Your post gave me the super duper warm fuzzies and my eyes are a little moist ;-) OH how I feel ya! From the emotions to the sore...uh...well, some things you just don't forget, LOL!!! New mommyhood....nothing like it. Looking forward to your next entry. :-)

  7. So precious!! Can't believe it's been over a week already! Hope you're all doing well :)

  8. Did I tell you how much I LOVE the Angelcare monitor. Seriously. Best invention for new parents. We haven't had any problems with ours until it just stopped working last week, but I called the company and they are sending a replacement free-of-charge. FYI. :)


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment...I love to read what you have to say about my little blog!
