And here is our little Hudson!

Hudson is still in the nicu but he is doing great!  He was breathing really hard and fast and they just wanted to give him a break and make sure he didn't "crash".  So they are giving him just a little extra oxygen.

He also has an IV because birth mom tested positive for the Group Strep B virus, which is totally common and about 50% of women have it.  Usually, the mom is given a shot and it takes affect within about 15 minutes, so there is no danger to the baby.  But Hudson was born within minutes of her getting the shot, so the doctors were concerned that he may have been exposed.  Just a precaution, we will know by about 4pm today.

If he is, then they just give him antibiotics in the IV and he will be fine.  If he does not have it, the IV comes out and he joins his brother in the regular nursery!!  I am praying for the latter!

Is such a little peanut!  But he really looks like a fighter.  I can not wait to cuddle and love on him.  Oh...this mamas arms are aching to hold her babies!!

And here they are !!!

Hudson Charles and Beckham Matthew!
Born today at 12:15 pm and 12:35 pm.
Weighing 4lb 13oz and 4lb 5oz.

This is Beckham.

 And this is Beckham.

And this is Beckham too!!

The reason all of the photos are only of Beckham is that Hudson had some issues with his breathing and he is in the nicu, so birth mom didn't get pictures of him.  But I have been on the phone with his nurse and she assures me that he is doing great and should only be in a few days, just to get his strength up.

I cried as I told her I was sad that I didn't get to see pictures of him, and she said, "Did you get to see pictures of the other one?"  I told her yes and she said, "Then you've seen this one too!"  Because they are IDENTICAL!!  Wow!  I had no idea!

I am in awe!  Thank you Lord for these precious babies!  I am so thankful to be their mommy.  Thank you for the awesome woman who is sharing them with us and giving them to our family to love and treasure and raise to be Godly men!

Oh I am so filled with thankfulness and I can not wait to get there and hold them!!!  Now if only we weren't so far away!  We will be rolling toward them in a few days.  Please pray for us and that our trip to NC will be fast and safe!

I love you my sweet little baby boys!  And your sisters are so fired up!  We could probably run to NC!!
