Baby Jarom!

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!
The kids came later that afternoon to meet their baby brother. They were SO excited!
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!

Sweet Charity is very gentle with him. She'll be a great helper too!

But unlike his doting older siblings, Jakey didn't know what to think at first.

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.

When we got home from the hospital, the kids had each chosen a stuffed animal to give him. They piled them on top of him right when we walked in the door. He's probably used to all the noise and chaos from when he was in my belly, so he slept right through it all.

Welcome home Sweet boy!

What a sweetheart! Sorry about the rotten delivery, but I'm glad you got what you wanted (no c-section). Congratulations, he is just beautiful!

I love that he is sleeping through the commotion. I'm sure he will have to sleep through a lot more of it. That is a good idea to have the kids give him a gift. Looks like you are all doing well....even Jakey!

I just love Jakey's expression---the poor guy! He'll make a great older brother I'm sure! You guys are such a loving and wonderful family--miss you!

Rob and Steph Puterbaugh said...

congrats! he's soo cute! wow...24 hours of labor!!!! WAs that the longest labor you've had? c-sections aren't bad...but mine was scheduled. Maybe it would be different if it was an emergency...

Congratulations on your new baby boy! I'm glad that the kids are adjusting well (that was a huge concern I had when I delivered my will my 22 month old handle all of this?).
