We are so excited about the 1st LR game this coming weekend!! Alex and I are going to Lunch with some friends and then going to the Golf Course tailgating! We are really excited to see everyone!!

Here are some pictures of Hudson in his Razorback Jersey!!

That jersey is a size 12months and it fits perfectly... he is such a chunk!! He weighs 21 pounds now!!

We went to dinner at Copeland's lastnight with Dad and Kara and it was DELICIOUS of course!! Here is a pic from there...

Here are some pictures of Hudson before Church this morning! He can stand up for about 5 seconds without support! We caught him in action in one of the pictures!!

Whats new in the Harvey house!?

We have all been very busy but we are all doing great! Hudson has mastered the crawling thing and he is already wanting to walk! I got my first big paycheck last week so I promised him he could get a new toy :) Well we went to Wal-Mart and picked out one of those toys where he can stand up and hold on to it and push it and walk with it. Sounds confusing but Im sure all you moms can picture this in your heads! Anyways... it says 9+ months but I couldnt resist it. After a couple of days he has it figured out! He pulls up on it and pushes it while walking all over the house! It is so cute! It looks funny because he is only 7months so it just looks unusual seeing him walking behind it! Ha! Of course he cannot walk yet... he can just walk while supporting himself on the toy! It is his new favorite for sure! I bet he will be walking early. Alex started walking at 8months so he thinks Hudson is going to take after him in that area! We shall see! Other new with Hudson, he has been sick! This is the first time he has been sick and had to go to the "sick" area in the Dr. Office!! He has had a cough for about a week and it just seemed to progressively get worse. He also had a little rash around his eyes that doesnt bother him at all but it doesnt look pretty and its just not normal for him. Dana was watching him this Mon, Tues, and Wed while I was working so I made him an appt with his doctor for Wednesday morning. My amazing boss let me leave and go meet them at the Dr too. His doctor says she thinks that the rash is some sort of irritation from him crawling and into more things now and then touching his eye. Something has irritated it. Of course there is not much you can do for a baby around the eye because of the risk of any creams getting in the eye. So she said to let that run its course and just keep an eye on it. Then she gave him an antibiotic for the cough. You would never know he is sick. He is still eating like a pig and playing hard! He is so sweet, he loves to snuggle and just hug on you. I am going to miss that when he gets bigger! He has 2 teeth on the bottom now!! Its so cute! I havent been able to get a good picture showing them off yet though!

Alex has been working like usual! They have stayed busy at Landers thank goodness! I know alot of people are losing jobs and having trouble during this regression and we are so thankful that Landers stays at the top! Alex was off this past Saturday and we had his sister Sutton and his brother Brock come down and stay the weekend with us! We had alot of fun with them and I know Alex was happy to have them here! We grilled burgers and went to the movies and went shopping. Alex's family is still having a rough time with the loss of Sydni so we were glad Sutton was able to get away and spend some time with us. When I got home from work on Wednesday there were 2 guys here talking to Alex about a Security System for our home. I was totally against it at first because I was tired and didnt want to pay big money for that. Well after talking to them about it they totally sold me. It was a great deal and a low, fixed rate each month that we would be paying! It monitors all the windows and doors and when we are not home there is a motion detector on. We also got those keychains where you can set them alarm from outside when you leave and turn it off when you pull up to the house. Also when we are home and the alarm is not set, we can set it to where when any door opens it beeps twice just to alert us that a door is open. That will be great when Hudson gets older and trys to go outside without me knowing!! Its pretty neat and definately worth the safety of my family.

Well I am still LOVING my job! I am really getting the hang of it and taking multiple patients alone now. It is so rewarding to recieve these patients and then send them home a few days later knowing that I have helped them improve and become independent again. My patients have complimented me so much saying I was a great nurse and that they recieved great care. And family members have thanked me for being so kind and caring to their loved ones. It means so much to me. I still love everyone that I work with also. A new girl started this past week and she just graduated also. So there are alot of us in our 20's working together so its so much fun! And they all have small children too so we all have alot in common. Its great!!

Well today Hudson and I are going to run some errands and go eat lunch with Alex! Here are some recent photos!!

Hudson eating some Gerber cheetos!!

Grana bought Hudson this after his Dr Appt! Spoiled rotten!

Some Recent Pictures!


I am a working woman now so I cannot blog as often as I used to! I REALLY like my job a lot so far! I work every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and then I am off on Thurs, Fri, Sat, and Sun!! How awesome is that? I love all of the people that I work with and everyone is so helpful and fun! I have learned SOOOO much already! The unit that I work on is care for patients after they have surgery... and its just a general medsurg floor so anyone who is sick (with like pneumonia, car wreck, stomach problems, snake bite, etc.) and their doctor wants to admit them to the hospital.. they come to our floor. So our patients stay for 2 to 3 days and then we send them home! It is such a busy unit that the day goes by really fast! I love that. I havent gotten a pay check yet, I get paid next week so I am pretty excited about that too!!!

Alex has been really helpful on the days I work, since I get home at 7 he has had supper ready when I get home! We went to walmart before I started and stocked up on everything and we got some quick/easy meals that he could prepare on the days that I work! Dana kept Hudson this week while I worked, she brought him up to see me on Tuesday which I loved!

Today Lindsay and I went swimming at Jane Jo's pool! I had Hudson of course and she had her two bonus sons! It was alot of fun. I think the kids wore themselves out so hopefully they will all sleep good tonight :)

Hudson is crawling so fast all over the place and is in to everything now!! We are working on learning what "no, no" means! LOL Its not going very well! He has one tooth on the bottom and a second one coming any day now! He also had to move to a new class at Church! We went to BabiesRUs this morning and got him a big boy car seat! The doctor said it was time!

Well Hudson is attacking the computer as Im typing this so I have got to wrap it up!! Hope everyone is doing good!!

1. I love your smile and your perfect teeth (never had to have braces-punk)

2. I love your dark hair that you always think is poofy, but I think is perfect

4. I love how you have small hands but they are rough and callused showing that your a hardworker.

5. I love how you still look 18 even though your (almost) 22, because I know you'll look young when we are grannys and granpas!

10. I love your sense of humor.. you are so goofy and silly sometimes, but so am I and its hilarious to me!

11. I love how when you get excited about something you get spastic and start rushing around like a maniac. Its overwhelming but its cute.

12. I love how you say random things that you dont mean to people on accident. Like when I came to visit you at work and then I was leaving and everyone told me bye and you said "See yall later" (dead serious, not being funny) and you were staying not leaving haha!

13. I love how we have the same morals and values when it comes to making decisions for Hudson. And how we have the same view on raising him in Church to know Jesus.

14. I love how when our time on earth is over, we will still be together for eternity in Heaven :)

15. I love how through the hard times we have had this past year we have carried each other and we still managed to focus on all the good

17. I love how you are up for trying anything, even if your not good at it.

18. I love how when we get dressed, if we have on the same color shirt, you will change because you think its weird to match, but I think its cute!

19. I love how your feet are completely flat, so you really dont have the ability to run because it hurts your back after a while :)

20. I love how you have such a huge love for animals and wish you could save every dog. We just have to work on your ability to train them!

21. I love how when I am upset about something, you automatically know it without me having to say so. And you do whatever you can to make it better.

22. I love how you are so good with cars and you always have my oil changed, and lights working, and all the other weird stuff that I know nothing about.

23. I love how everytime we go to a store you insist on getting Hudson a toy... when really you cant wait to get home and play with it too!

24. I love watching you play with Hudson and give him a bath. He loves bathtime!

25. I love how over-protective you are with him and if he even whines you jump up and get him. He has you wrapped around his finger.

26. I love how you love your family and strive to have a good relationship with them.

27. I love how you enjoy working out and eating healthy. I want us to always take good care of our bodies.

28. I love how you are interested in what I do and you listen to me when I tell you about Nursing even though your lost.

29. I love how when you talk about something that is important to you, you go into this deep conversation and you get so serious. So cute.

30. I love how you are obsessed with new shoes, and new hats. I love when you wear a hat.

31. I love when you try to be sweet and make the bed for me, even though it looks like a sloppy mess, I love it, because you tried :)

32. I love how you get up at night and help me with Hudson even though I havent had to work the past six months. It shows me how much you care, about him and me.

33. I love how you are such a handy man around the house, you can fix anything, and keep the yard looking good.

34. I love your dedication to your job and am thankful for you working hard and supporting while I finished school.

35. I love how when we get in bed to go to sleep, you snuggle up next to me. And you say "Say your Prayers"

36. I love how you still leave the toilet seat up even though Iv been telling you for 4 years now to put it down haha okay so I dont love that one!

37. I love how you compliment me every day and tell me Im the prettiest girl you've ever seen. Though it may not be true.. I still love to hear it.

38. I love how every time we get off the phone, even if its a 3 second conversation you say "I love you" before we hang up.

39. I love looking back to where we've been and seeing who we are today.

40. But most of all I love how you love me.

It may sound cliche to other people who are reading, but I can honestly say I married my best friend. This first year has been a rollercoaster, and if we can survive it, I know we can handle anything. I love you more than I could ever explain. I look forward to many, many, many, many, many, many, MANY more years with you!!!!
