Christmas with the Boys cont.

Things have been busy around here and I had forgotten to post a few more pictures from Christmas. The boys have had so much fun playing with all their new toys, though they got so much I had to put some up for later. Their favorite things to play with are their new Wii games and their Nintendo DS, though Brooks doesn't really know what he is doing but he is trying.

On a different note Hudson is doing so good. This past week he drank an ounce of apple juice out of his bottle (I got a bit teary eyed). I gave him a bottle today and he drank 3 1/2 ounces, Clint and I were so excited!!! He has never drank that much by mouth EVER!!!! 2009 is going to be a great year for him!!!

Christmas with the Boys

So I felt like a litle kid on Christmas Eve this year for some reason, I was so excited for the boys and Christmas this year. I think because I knew that they were so excited and couldn't wait to open presents. They had such a great time, and got so much stuff, from Meme and Papa, Grandma and Grandpa's, Aunts and Uncles, Neighbors, Santa and US... Ugh I have to find a place for all of their stuff now. So the following are just pictures of Christmas and the days leading up... I hope that everyone had a great Christmas, and remembered the real reason we celebrate Christmas, Jesus.

Costner and Brooks made Reindeer food at school so they put it out Christmas Eve on the front lawn, though Brooks kept on eating it... aww Boys...

Santa left the boys some pretty cool gifts, new bikes for all of them, Clint, Costner and Brooks, and Hudson got a buggy for behind Clint's bike... Hmm... what am I going to do with my free time when the boys are on their bike rides???

Hudson working Hard

Hudson has been working so hard the past few weeks and doing some new things, which off-course makes us very proud of him. Hudson has learned to wave, say no, and yes, (shacking his head) and he almost has blowing a kiss down. The past few days he has been able to eat almost a whole thing of baby food at dinner time, by just using a spoon, not his pacifier!!! And lastly he is kind of saying mom mom, he is such a huge mommy's boy!!!

Snow Pictures

I am off-course late posting our snow pictures but below is that snow that showed up a couple weeks ago. Got to love Texas 75 degrees one day and snowing the next.

More adventures with Hudson

Playing with Costner

This past week has been very adventurous with Hudson... I took him to the Dr. on Wednesday because he was fighting with a bad cold for the past week, and it ended up that he had RSV. Of course I kind of freaked out because the entire time we were in the hospital with Hudson and all his issues there were signs all over about RSV, and our course our little guy got it. By Thursday night his breathing was pretty bad and he was working too hard to breathe, so my mom and I took him to the ER. (Clint was out of town, but just in Oklahoma not overseas!) We took him to St. Luke's, and they off course saw him right away because they could tell he was having some breathing difficulties. St. Luke's gave him some breathing treatments, and did some chest xrays and then decided it would be in Hudson's best interest to be transferred downtown due to his medical history. At 3 am Hudson and I ended up at TCH (Texas Children's Hospital) again. I off course was totally unprepared for a downtown trip and realized that I had only packed one diaper (plenty of clothes for Hudson but none for me). TCH monitored him till Saturday morning and then released him still saying that it was just RSV, we were all worried that there were some issues with his upper airway but that still seems to be doing great. Clint ended up flying in on Friday evening to help take care of the boys and then come and pick his stranded wife and Son up at TCH ( we had been transferred in the ambulance). I felt pretty trapped down there, no car, no clothes I had to get some diapers and buy a t-shirt at the gift shop, how pathetic. Needless to say I was looking pretty special when Clint came to pick us up (Hudson off course was looking supper cute since he had a variety of clothes in the diaper bag).

Hudson is doing much better now, after our scare this past week and today we made another trip downtown for an ENT appointment but all looked great, oh yes, big news He passed his hearing test in both ears!!! YAY!!! This afternoon he was doing a lot of playing with his brothers he loves them, though is a bit scared of Brooks.
