Looking back on 2011

Wow...2011 was an amazing year for our little family. I was pregnant for the 1st half of the year and then we started our journey as parents the 2nd half. I am amazed by the way God has blessed us and we are looking forward to all 2012 has in store. Here's a look back at 2011...a few of the highlights!

We started the year finishing several house projects. I was almost halfway through my pregnancy and we wanted to get the house finished before our baby arrived. We found out we were having a sweet BOY!

I had so many wonderful baby showers for Hudson. The first was back in Hamilton.

We had a 4D ultrasound of Hudson and got a glimpse of what he would look like. 

My 2nd shower in The Woodlands

I was admitted to the hospital for observation when I was 32 weeks pregnant. My doctor said my swelling was "impressive" and wanted to monitor me to make sure I didn't have pregnancy induced hypertension. I did not but I went on bed rest for a week. Was released to go back to work but the swelling came back with a vengeance. So I was on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. Laying on my left side only bed rest. I do not miss that at all.

While on bed rest I was given doctor approval to go to my big church baby shower. They brought a glider and ottoman up there for me and I stayed in it the whole time. 

Another sweet baby shower with our good friends the Chavana's.

And on June 10, 2011 (my 28th birthday) at 6:00 am my water broke. I was 39 weeks pregnant so we rushed to the hospital and Hudson Spencer Woods was born at 5:16 pm via c-section. Best birthday present ever. :)

When Hudson was 2 weeks old we had some precious family pictures taken at our home.

September 25, 2011 we dedicated Hudson to the Lord. We committed to be godly parents and lead Hudson to one day have a personal relationship with Christ.

We went to Baylor for Homecoming. 

Hudson had his first Christmas (and first Thanksgiving, Halloween and 4th of July among others). It was so magical.

We celebrated our first Christmas as a family of 3.

And we rang in the new year. I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for our sweet family. 


  1. What a fun recap!! Such an amazing year filled w/changes! :)

    (mine is still in progress...)

  2. Isn't it crazy that the first half of the year felt like forever since we were pregnant, then the second half has flown by with our babies???
