Going back through these pictures and writing about this instantly brings tears to my eyes! I anticipated this moment for months, and it was truly amazing! I will never forget these brothers meeting for the first time <3
I'll write more about Baby Brother soon, but this post is just about Hudson meeting Colby at the hospital.
Hudson stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Adams while I was in the hospital with the baby. Until those three nights, I'd only been away from Hudson for one night at a time (and probably fewer than 10 nights in his whole little life!). I missed him SO much and could not wait to see him!
We decided that he should go to daycare as usual and then come to visit after his day at Marilyn's. Claire took some pictures for us, and I love ALL of them!
Nick went to the lobby to meet Hudson, and they rode up in the elevator. Hudson LOVES elevators, and he was SO excited on his ride up to my room on the third floor!
He had the BIGGEST smile on his face when he came in the room, but he seemed sort of shy at the same time. We were SO happy to see each other: )
These two pics really bring it all back!
After Hudson saw Colby, he said, "Let's go home!"
Around this time, Hudson said, "He likes me!" <3 <3 <3
I had - obviously - started to cry by this point!
Hudson carefully held Colby for the first time...
...and he helped me count Colby's toes!
Look at that smile - SO sweet!
Claire snapped a few other pictures, too...

There's no other love like the love from a brother."
