February 16, 2003 (6 months old) - Hudson enjoyed this first food from a spoon today. He has been having rice cereal from a bottle for a few weeks now, but this was his first time to use a spoon. He did good at eating and at making a mess.
Christmas Day, December 25, 2002 (4 months old) - We celebrated our first Christmas together by going to my parents on Christmas Eve night and spent christmas morning with my family. Then we drove back to Alabama to celebrate Christmas with Lara's family. Check out the pictures in the photo album section.
December 4, 2002 (3 months old) - Hudson's had his picture made with Santa this evening. He told Santa that he wanted a computer and a stereo and a big screen TV and a new car. I wonder where he gets all those ideas from?

Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2002 (3 months old) - Hudson's began his first Thanksgiving by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. After watching the parade, Hudson played on his favorite toy.

October 13, 2002 (9 weeks old) - Although we were afraid that we lost them in the construction from the lightning, Lara was able to find the clothes that my parents gave us. We dressed Hudson up in attempt to recreate a picture from 28 years ago.
October 3, 2002 (8 weeks old) - Hudson took his first major trip by going to Houston for Susan Shaffner's wedding.
September 14, 2002 (5 weeks old) - Lara took Hudson for his first walk in his stroller. It was a nice September day, so Lara walked up and down the street while I worked in the yard.
August 31, 2002 (3 weeks old) - After several weeks of spit baths, Hudson is finally big enough to have a real bath in his little bath tub. He seemed to really enjoy it, and didn't cry at all until he had to get out and get cold. This bath was in preparation for his first trip to the lake. We spent the afternoon with the Fordham's at their family lake house.
August 10, 2002 (5 days old) - Lara's aunt Vickie has been working very hard to create a garden mural in Hudson's room. Progress has been going well, but Vickie fell and hurt her head, so she was unable to complete the mural. Hopeful she will be able to come back and finish soon, but in the mean time, the wall looks very nice.

June 26, 2002 (34 weeks) - For fun, we have added the Baby Birthday Pool to the web site. Go to the Pool and register your guess as to when the baby is going to be born. The winner gets to name the baby*.
* Just kidding, winner does not actually get to name the baby, unless Lara and I win.
Lara's Baby Shower, June 8, 2002 (32 weeks) - Lara's sister, Amy and her best friend, Liz threw her a baby shower. There was a good turn out, including her aunts from Huntsville and Macon and Evan's mom from Mississippi. Many people knew that we are decorating the nursery with Classic Pooh, and Lara received a lot of Pooh related gifts accordingly, including this giant stuffed bear from her mother. Click on the picture for more photos taken at the shower.
Mother's Day, May 12, 2002 (28 weeks) - Lara enjoyed her first taste of Mother's Day by going out to lunch after church. She looks so cute in her Sunday dress that we had to take a picture.
May 6, 2002 (27 weeks) - Lara had another monthly check-up today and everything is going just fine. They listened to the heart beat and said it was very strong and sounded very good. Starting next month, Lara will visit the doctor every two weeks.
April 7, 2002 (23 weeks) - Lara and I went down to Babies 'R Us to register for baby gifts. It was a lot of fun to look at all the cool things they have for small children. Lara choose the "Classic Pooh" theme for the baby's room. You can check out most of the items that we registered for on-line at babiesrus.com.
April 5, 2002 (23 weeks) - We had our sex determination ultrasound this afternoon. In case you can't tell, we are having a boy. Be sure to check out the video and pictures. Be sure to look for his eye to move in the video. He also opens his mouth and sticks out his tongue. Along with the ultrasound, we also had a check up, and the doctor said everything is going just fine.
March 12, 2002 (19 weeks) - We had the second ultrasound today. Unfortunately the baby wouldn't cooperate, so we were not able to determine the sex. The umbilical cord was between the legs, making it impossible to get a peek. According to the measurements taken, the baby is 11 ounces, and is exactly on track, size wise. The heart rate was 150, which is generally considered to be in the range of a girl, but no one at the doctor's office wanted to go out on a limb and say one way or the other. We are considering trying again in 3 weeks, but because sex determination is not a medical procedure, we would have to pay for that ultrasound. Here are the pictures and video from the ultrasound.
February 2, 2002 (14 weeks) - Everything has been going pretty smoothly. Except for some of the normal discomforts of being pregnant, Lara hasn't had many complaints.
She has enjoyed wearing maternity clothes for several weeks, so we thought we would take this picture showing one of her new outfits.
December 11, 2001 (6 weeks) - After a brief scare, Lara and I went to the doctor two days early. Lara was checked out and everything is just fine. She had an ultrasound, and we got to see the heart beat! According to the measurements taken with the ultrasound, she is 6 weeks 2 days along. We were given a due date of August 4, 2002. We are going again on Thursday, and expect to have more information then.
November 27, 2001 (4 weeks) - Lara is pregnant! Check back for more information.
