Both Ryan and Hudson had birthdays this week. Ry turned 31 on the 11th and Hudson turned 1 on the 15th! It was a fun-filled birthday week at our house!
For Ry's birthday, we actually got a babysitter and went out to dinner just the 2 of us! It was fabulous. We got to talk and eat in peace. We ate at PF Changs then came home and had ice cream cake with the boys.
For Hudson's birthday, we got him balloons, which he loves, and a book that sings and talks. He loved holding his balloon and says, "Wow" every time he sees it. We sang to him and walked to Stewart's for ice cream cones. We can't get enough of our Bubbers! He melts our hearts and makes us laugh. He says "hi" when anyone walks into the room. He says "wow" anytime he sees a balloon, bird or airplane. He will crawl around the house until he finds me. He loves to be by Griffy and wants everything Griffin has. He loves to take drinks from our cups. He loves stroller rides, dancing to music, crawling and climbing on the couch, playing outside, wrestling with daddy and being by my side. He is a lover and we are so thankful he is ours.
Hudson loves, loves his big brother. Today, Griffy rode around the house with Bubbers on the plasma car. Hudson was in heaven! It was so cute to watch them ride together.
On another note, Ryan, finished his first year of residency and is now a 2nd year!! I feel like a proud mother when I think of all the hours and hard work he has put in at the hospital. I'm pretty sure they try to work them to death the first year. And Ry survived it! It was a crazy year full of lots of changes. And I don't do well with change. But we made it and have adjusted to life in NY. We miss our families, of course, but we've grown as our own little family. Just 3 more years of Anesthesia to go! This year actually went by fast, so let's hope the next 3 fly by too. I love Ry so much and am so thankful for all he does for our family. I asked Griffin what he wants to be when he grows up and he said, "A doctor just like daddy." Bless his future wife.
