Hudson Shane Picklesimer is here

Between feeding, changing diapers, and being sleep deprived I have done a terrible job about keeping up with our blog. I can't believe that our little man is over 2 weeks old! Shane and I are so in love with Hudson and feel so blessed to be his parents. Below are some pictures of the day of Hudson's arrival.

Baby Showers, New House, and Dr.'s Visits

Well, as most of you know, the Picklesimer's enjoy having 50 million things going on at once. I guess I will start from where I left off in the last blog.

Shane has been working at Progress Rail in Albertville for around 16 months now, which means that he has been traveling 3 hours a day to work. With Hudson coming soon, we decided it was time to move. After having the condo on the market for almost 2 years, it finally sold and we were able to buy a house in Guntersville. I will spare you the long story of how it all came about, but it was nothing other that God's working in our lives. Needless to say, the second time I ever came to Guntersville we put an offer on a house and closed on July 31.

The first 2 weekends in August I had my baby showers. The first one was in Jackson and was given by my family and friends. It was so nice to see everyone and despite the terrential downpour, we had a great time. The second shower was in Birmingham and was given by Shane's family and our friends from Birmingham. Shane and I are so blessed to have such great families and friends.

After baby showers for 2 weekends, that left us at August 14 for a move in. Word to the wise...try not to move to a different town while 9 months pregnant. You feel worthless because you can't do anything. However, thanks to the parental units on both sides and the nice movers, we at least have most things in place. Just have to organize and get ready for Hudson's arrival.

Speaking of Hudson's arrival, after many doctor's visits and much prayer, it has been decided that Hudson will be delivered by c-section due to concern about my heart. Assuming that he can wait until then, he is scheduled to make his grand entrance on September 15.

I know I promised belly pictures last time, but unfortunately I can't find my camera cord to my computer. I hope to find it soon and I will post pics then.

Life As We Know It

I am so embarrassed that I am just now figuring this blogging thing out, but I guess I will bring everyone up to speed on our current life. Shane and I are expecting our first little one in September. We had really thought hard about starting our family and felt that God would give us a baby in His time. Although we did not expect a positive pregnancy test so soon, we are so excited about this new time in our lives. We are trying to sell our condo so that we can have more room by the time our sweet baby boy arrives. For now, Shane is traveling all of the time and I am working for a few more months at a church. Gherkin, our Bichon, is being such a good sport during all of this transition time. No new news for now and I will post belly pics soon. I have to figure it out first.
