Hudson Thomas, you are FIVE! FIVE!
I just can't believe it...
I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. Daddy and I were so excited to meet our newest little baby - and were so curious to know if you were a little girl...or boy! We were THRILLED to meet you - a baby brother - for Lillianne! Everyone was so happy!! You came into this world fast...and haven't slowed down since =)
You are 100% boy! Hudson, you basically run everywhere you go - running, skipping, bouncing, jumping. Never walking...and always fast. You love to put on tennis shoes (because they make you "super fast") and spend much of your day in the yard. I love to see you play and it's fun watching you develop skill in a variety of sports - baseball, basketball, tennis, golf. You could play them all day long!
I never thought you would care so much about what you wear each day but we've run into several fashion issues this year. You refuse to wear jeans that aren't tight (several skinny jeans you own don't even make the cut!). On the other hand, you LOVE "cozy clothes" and immediately run upstairs to change into gym shorts and t-shirts as soon as we get home. Your known to wear more than one outfit a day... And your hair! Major bed-head issues every morning. You either don't want anything done to it ---- or you want a slicked down comb-over. Oi!
Hudson, you're just the sweetest little boy. You care deeply, are thoughtful, considerate, helpful, and show us so much love (through words and deeds). I am beyond thankful for you and look forward to watching the Lord work in and through you to bring others to Him.
Thank you for being an excellent brother to Lillianne, Nolan and Georgia. Thank you for helping me around the house (cleaning up, making your bed, taking out the trash, etc.) Thank you for often making the little ones happy when I can't. Thank you for your ability to make me laugh. Thank you for your smiles. I LOVE YOU!
We look forward to watching you grow this year!
I'm incredibly proud to be your momma!
