Years Past PP!

Here are some pictures just to refresh your memory of pumpkin patches past:-) The make me smile and realize how truly fast time goes by!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

I had to state the year because we have been to the same pumpkin patch for 6 years. We have seen pony rides go from $3.00 to $6.50, but every year it is worth it to catch up with friends and keep with the tradition:-)

Polly at 3 and 3/4

Here are some beautiful pics that Dara took of Polly Pie in her 3 and 3/4 tee shirt that Dara and Nichole made for her. She loved being Dara's muse.

Hudson at 1 Month Old

Here is our sweetie in his amazing tee shirts that Dara and Nichole gave him. They are so cute and I am going to try and get one of the entire family, they also made them for Piper, Polly and Hap. He is getting so big already and I am trying to cherish every second of his newbornness:-)

Hudson in the Hospital

Needless to say, when we brought him home from the hospital we never thought we would be back in a few days. Hudson had to be readmitted to the pediatric ward because, they thought, he had chicken pox, it turned out to be a virus, but the fear was him contracting meningitis. We spent 5 long days in the hospital. On a positive note we had our own room because he had a contagious disease.He was such a trooper and handled it much better than I did. We are just so thankful to put this all behind us and hope that we never see the inside of a hospital again. Here is to staying healthy!

Just a few more...

Here are some more pictures of our first day at home. We are on day 3 now and things are going well, trying to figure out how to accommodate all our little ones. Today, Polly headed to work with Andrew, Piper was off to school where she had a great day and Harrison kept me busy here. Gigi and Grampy came up here to help too, as I have always said it takes a village. We are so lucky!

Sentimental Beginings!

This outfit little Hudson is wearing is so special. It is the same outfit that Grampy wore home from the hospital and the same one Harrison wore home. It is now tradition and I just adore seeing him in it, so special! The top picture is Harrison, the bottom Hudson.

Welcome Home Hudson!

Today, we got to bring Hudson home from the hospital. So far, so good, we have been trying to take it easy and relax as tomorrow it is full steam ahead! It is always just so great to get home and out of the hospital.

Here are some more pictures of Hudson meeting the family...

Hudson meets the fam:-)

On Saturday the girls and "big bro" as we have been calling him got to come and meet little Hudson. The girls are so natural with him i is so amazing to watch. Hap was a little unsure, but super sweet to the "baby", as he called him. He did fall a part a tiny bit as you can see the picture of him laying on the floor. It was a wonderful first meeting and it was amazing to have our family together for the first time!

Hudson Timothy Power

Was welcomed into the world on Sept 25, 2009. He weighed 7lbs and 4oz. He was 20 inches long. He was the tiniest Power baby yet, but healthy and perfect in every way! Andrew, Gigi and Tia were all there to help me get through labor. Harrison spent the night with Gigi, Grampy, Tia and Jon while the girls had their first sleep over at the Kolakowski's. We could not have done it without all the wonderful help! We now have 4 healthy and happy little ones to complete our family!

September 25, 2009

What an exciting day, the day little Hudson Timothy Power, comes into our world. Mommy began having contractions and wanted to keep busy. She picked up Piper early from school, so she could go check on Grampy who had just had surgery. We went and got him chicken noodle soup and the girls and Hap devoured it. Mommy called Daddy and asked him to come home from work. We headed to the hospital around 4:30. Poor Grampy, could not make it, he was still feeling under the weather (well I guess that is an understatement) because he would have done anything to be there. At 7:06 little Hudson was born, he was sunny side up, his head was pushing into my back (ouch). 3 pushes and there he was, what a miracle. This picture is of the fam right before we headed to the hospital.
