It's a BOY!!!!

That's right, it's a boy! I KNEW I saw a little boy part at my 20 week ultrasound! In fact, I thought I saw it twice. Thanks a lot ultrasound tech for ruining the surprise for me ;)

I plan to post my birth story as soon as I can (because it's amazing and was so God for so many reasons!) but I wanted to hop on and post real quick that our sweet baby boy arrived on Saturday, December 15th at 5:15am. He weighed 8lbs, 8oz and was 19 inches long. Our shortest baby so far - and I question how accurate it is :) Tomorrow he has his first visit to the pediatrician's office so I know they will measure him again and we'll see if it's still the same.

His name is Hudson Wallis. Wallis is my Grandpa's last name (so also my mother's maiden name). He is someone very dear to me, has been like a father figure in my life, saved my life when I was 3 and just a special man. I prayed I would marry a man a lot like my Grandpa and I did. So, I really wanted to honor him in this way so it was exciting to find out boy and get to use this name.

Hudson is nursing like a champ! He latched on within seconds of me first nursing in the hospital. My milk came in before day 2 and so he is doing great and eating lots :)

Gracelyn is doing just fine with her new little brother. Although we know she wanted a girl baby all along, I knew she would adjust just fine and love a baby period. I don't think she really even understood the concept of what a sister was anyhow - it was just something she said because she knew Lincoln was a boy so having a girl would only make sense :)

Here's a few photos of our precious miracle. Stay tuned for the birth story!

A blessed momma of four
