Hudson Hedger has arrived!

Hudson Jude Hedger
9 lbs. 13 ounces!
22 inches
Welcome to the world, little cutie! We've been waiting a long time to meet you and you are welcomed with many open arms ready to hug and love on you!
He's a thinker already!

Libby is always fascinated with babies. Especially their hands and feet. Alread trying to hold his hand. They will be fast friends forever. Welcome little cousin!
So cute and SOO big! He's already got a double chin and many rolls. It's been a while since I've seen a newborn baby this big. What a trooper Bethany has been!

Hands and feet.

Lots of beautiful hair! So dark and with a little curl.

So cute! Yay for a healthy arrival! (look at that double chin!) And he's got dimples!
Yesterday during labor, before things got too tough.
All that work and laboring was well worth it, Bethany. You produced a big beautiful baby boy! Look at those muscles. Showing off already. :)

We get to meet the little guy. Libby, curious as ever.
Proud Daddy. Delivered his boy and cut the cord!

Proud Grammy/Nana welcoming her first grandbaby boy.

Hudson, you are well loved! I look forward to taking many great pictures of you. I pray that the Lord would reveal His truth to you at an early age. I can't wait to see what wonderful things the Lord has in store for your life. You Uncle Matt and Aunt Shannon love you and your cousin Libby loves you and can't wait to play with you!
Bethany did a great job. Went in yesterday. They broke her water sometime shortly after noon. She had contractions and was in labor for a long time. She got an epidural sometime that evening with pitocin closely following it. She was dialated to 9 cm's by 2:30 AM and we thought she was close. She gave birth around 8:00 AM on May 7 after 3 hours of pushing. The family is great and healthy and resting well. They've got a lot of sleep to catch up on! You did such a great job, Bethany and Peter!
