Birthday Boy!

Today is a special day! Ty Michael Hudson entered the world exactly a year ago this evening. I remember when Carynn and Jamie called us and said that they were leaving for Boise as Ty was letting his birth mom know he was ready to be born. Then he was here! All fingers and toes and everything else in place. What a blessing he has been to Carynn and Jamie and to us. His birth mom had to make a hard decision, but I know that it was the right one for all concerned. She will always have my eternal gratitude.

Happy 1st Birthday Ty! Nana and Grandpa love you so much!

Walk Tall!

We're back! We had a wonderful trip. However, we brought back awful colds as part of our souvenirs so we're just now starting to feel "normal." Because I was worried about passing along something to Carynn, Jamie or Ty I've stayed away even though I was so anxious to see them.

Today after my hair appointment (that was almost as good as taking an antibiotic) I stopped by to see Carynn and Ty. Michael had taken a walk there so we met and then.....waited! Ty was taking his nap and he needed his nap, so we waited. Finally when we could almost not stand it any longer Michael woke him up.

I'm happy to say that he recognized us. After a clothing change, it was time for Ty to show us his that he could walk the walk....and he did! His coordination and balance are great and he was moving faster than I had pictured him in my mind.

We enjoyed our visit and can't hardly wait for his birthday in a few days.

On our way to Thailand!

Michael and I are nearing the end of our cruise. Our last port is Laem Chabang, Thailand where we disembark and then take a bus/coach to Bangkok (a 2 1/2 hour drive). We've had intermittent e-mail access during the trip so this is my first post since we left.

I brought my little brag book so I could look at pictures of Ty and our family. It always brings a smile when I look through it. I admit I've shared it with a few people (I couldn't resist!)

So we're on our way to Thailand. I thought it appropriate that I blog that since it has the same pronunciation as our Ty whose land is America and is very far away from where I am right now.

More when we get back!
