Meet Sam and Hudson
Number of children and ages?
1 child Hudson aged 4 months
Sometimes the best things in life, are those spontaneous adventures. The things you need the most in life are sometimes the things you never knew you wanted.
We had a breezy pregnancy which I thoroughly enjoyed, however had a rather complicated labour, that took many turns, and didn't go to plan at all. I was rather disappointed it didn't go to plan, and I didn't get that moment where your child gets placed on you. However once I came back from surgery I was welcomed into a room with my [partner, my Son, my Mum and dad, and just sat their holding my little man knowing that although the moment wasn't how I imagined it, i was holding this piece of perfection.
Most memorable mum moment?
Bringing Hudson home, and just seeing the love and joy her bought to everyone who was there. He was the missing piece to many circles, and is one very loved little boy.
Biggest mum achievement? (can be making it through your first 24hours!)
Finding my feet as a mum, and learning with each new day.
Best mum advice?
Have fun & enjoy the ride- today's worries are tomorrow's stories
What advice do you wish you had been given before Bub arrived?
It's okay not to know it all, motherhood is one of the only journeys for which there is no guide
Hudson Jack Gooley
Reason for name choice?
Hudson was a name that mum and dad could agree on, but Jack was after his Uncle, his uncle is everything we want Hudson to be his Strong, Adventurous, Kind, Brave and has the most positive attitude in the face of challenges, all the thing we know he will teach Hudson as he grows older.
My biggest milestone to date?
I have the most infectious laugh, which i like to share with everyone. I started laughing early at around 2 months, but each and every time I laugh it gets more profound.
My favourite thing to do?
Is watch my puppies, I am always look at the puppies, and having conversations with them.
What ONE word do you think best describes me?
