1,095 days ago Hudson was welcomed into this wonderful world. His brother Bennett was so excited to meet his new baby brother. Family traveled countless miles away to get a glimpse of his first smile. And aside from the little scare that sent Hudson back in the hospital for about 10 days, everything worked out in the end, and the little champ pulled through like the rockstar he is.
Time flies so quickly when you have kids. For those of you who don’t have any, it’s a feeling you’ll never understand until it happens. So you may have to take my word for it.
There are many milestones I look back on. Sitting up on their own. Crawling. Standing. Walking. First words. The list goes on and on…and just when I thought that Bennett would never be topped with his silliness and humor, in rolls Hudson and steals the show…well sometimes.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love BOTH of my sons equally. I’d do anything for either of them, but what I believe most parents of multiple children can attest to is how different children who come from the same parents can be! It’s truly amazing. The personalities grow and evolve. Traits from the parents, habits learned from their older or younger sibling. It’s just puts me an awe on different they become as they grow into themselves.
So today Hudson, Bennett and I celebrated Hudson’s wonderful 1,095th day on this earth. We saw some aliens, we played games, we opened presents, and even ate cupcakes that dad baked. *side note, I’m not much of a baker, but the little girl down the street said they were delicious. So i’ll take that as a win.
All in all I’m one lucky dad. I couldn’t ask for anything more than to spend the day with my two little show stoppers. Happy Birthday Hudson. You and your big brother will always make me proud.
