Last Friday, Handsome Hudson found out he had strep throat.  Antibiotics are much tastier now...no tantrums...he liked the taste.  Hudson found himself all day with Saturday with Nana and Sunday with Aunt Melissa at his house...daddy came home at night, but, it was strange to say the least.  Little did he know his mommy was in the hospital having his little sister, Beckett August.  He knows now...I’m sure in time his friend the bear will be replaced by BB...Beautiful Beckett!
