Hudson Jay

Hudson Jay Gibb
Born July 15th at 9:09pm
6.8 lbs 20 inches

Yep, that's right, he's here! Little Hudson decided to come 4 weeks early, much to our surprise!
Here's the recap: Griffin, my parents and I were up in Show Low basking in the cool weather enjoying my last trip up there. I was 36 weeks. We drove up Tuesday night. We played in the rain on Wed. and went out to eat. I was sound asleep Wed. night when all of a sudden at 1:30am I feel a gush. I jump out of bed and hurry to the bathroom thinking, this can't be my water breaking! It just can't! I'm not ready!!! But sure enough, it was. I ran downstairs to tell my parents. We packed the car and headed back to Mesa as fast as we could. I called Ryan in NY and told him to get a flight ASAP. I wasn't having contractions so that was good. We got to the hospital around 7:30am. The doc checked me and I was at a 2 so we started an IV but held off on the pitocin. He knew Ry was flying in so we delayed as long as we could. They eventually started the pitocin and I contracted as long as I could. I got the epidural when Ry boarded the plane in Vegas at 6 and he made it to the hospital at 7:30pm. I delivered at 9:09. So, thankfully, it all worked out!! We are back at my parent's house now and doing great! Now I just have to figure out when to sleep. Hudson is a dream boat and we are so happy to have him join our family!

Happy 30th birthday to my honey!
I'm so sad we can't be together to celebrate your big day. Seriously - it stinks. And the fact that you have to work on your birthday stinks too. Welcome to adulthood and residency!

Things about this birthday boy:
He is a perfectionist (Maybe that's why it took him 4 days to pack the u-haul to move to NY. It had to be just right!)
He loves pickles, chips and salsa and pistachios.
He recently lost 30 lbs. with diet and exercise.
He is now into road biking.
Before making a purchase, he will research it to death to find the best deal.
He is in love with electronics and modified flashlights.
He calls all of his friends on their birthday.
He has more shirts than I do.
He is nice.
He is always helping someone with their computer.
He is Griffin's wrestling partner and clone.
He showers twice a day.
He thinks he is not that social but we are always the last ones to leave because he is talking to someone.
He loves sports.
His favorite ice cream is pralines and cream.
He paces when he talks on the phone.
He is the smartest guy I know.
He looks hot with a buzz cut.
He is the best husband to me and for me.
He loves his Griffy guy to pieces.

I miss you, Ry, and love you so much! Happy Birthday!!
