After 24 LONG hours of labor, Jarom Thomas Hudson finally decided to make his appearance! He was born on June 11th at 8:11am. It certainly wasn't an ideal birth experience. I really hate inductions, because I feel the baby should just come when he's ready. But under our circumsances, we felt it was the best option. I'm just so grateful I didn't have a c-section. There was a scare at one point, where my blood pressure dropped dramatically and the baby showed signs of distress. They were extremely close to giving me a c-section, but we had some amazing nurses who did an excellent job of taking care of it, and they were able to help me and the baby recover. So thankfully everything worked out. He weighed in at 8lbs. 7oz. and he was 19 3/4in. long.
Here I am after my epidural. :)))))))))))))))
YAY! Welcome to the world Jarom Thomas Hudson!
Nana Jodie (Jon's mom) was able to travel all the way here from Washington to spend time with us, help with the kids, and meet her newest grandchild. Thank you, thank you, thank you Nana Jodie!
We love you!!
Celeste absolutely cannot get enough of this little guy. All she wants to do is look at him and hold him. She'll even skip out on other privileges (movies, games, etc) just to be with him instead. She'll be such a wonderful mother someday.
Jarom will want to be just like his big brother Benny!
He wasn't too thrilled about not being the baby anymore. :(
But I think now he understands that everything will be ok. :) We've tried to be sensitive to his needs lately, and give him some extra loving. And ever since we got home, he seems to be adjusting well. He keeps saying, "Baby Jarom is so tute." So I think that's a good sign.
I know... what a HUNK! There's nothing hotter than a studly manly-man holding a brand new baby. I love this man. He's such a wonderful husband and father. Yep, sorry girls, he's taken... WAY taken. :)
Love my little guy!!! I feel like I've known him forever.
