Today is a special day for us...

One year ago today we found out we were going to have this little guy.

I am sure every mom can recall the moment in which they realized they were going to be a mom. The feeling is indescribable and a moment I will cherish in my memories for the rest of my life. I remember walking home from the restaurant where I told Travis he was going to be a dad (read the story here) and I was literally squealing on the way home. I could hardly contain myself. At the time it just felt like an exciting dream, but the reality of it really didn't hit until I started feeling him move.

This last year has probably been the best year of my life. I absolutely loved being pregnant, giving birth and I have been loving every moment since. For those of you who know me well, you know I have always wanted to be a mom and wife. It really is the greatest joy of my life. I am so thankful to the Lord for allowing me to be a steward of this precious child. One thing we pray for Hudson more than anything else is for his salvation. Our deepest desire isn't that he would be musical, smart, funny, handsome or athletic, but that he would put his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior of his life. Our number one goal in our home is to reflect the love of Christ in our family pointing Hudson to the cross. I can't wait to celebrate when Hudson becomes a part of the family of God.

Here are a few pictures of Hudson on this special day.
