Hudson: Three Years Old

26 May

Hudson, or Hud the Stud, turned three years old in late March. This one… he is quite the handful. He can be the sweetest thing and then one second later he makes you want to pull your hair out 🙂 He is the ultimate daddy’s boy (although he is warming back up to mom), loves his sister and brother, and marches to his own drum.

Hud is quite the character. At times he is the sweetest and most loving little guy. He still likes to cuddle, give kisses, and wants to be with us all of the time. That said, I thought Kyler was hard at 3 but he has her beat. He loves to talk back, pushes the limits, throw tantrums and well, you know, act like a toddler. He spends more time in time out than I would like but I know it’s just a stage. We joke that he is like my dad because his mouth gets him in trouble quite a bit 🙂

Hudson loves to dance, play with his toys (Star Wars, Ninja Turtles, Cars, Trains, Super Heroes, Barbies and Shopkins), and eat cookies. This kid and his dance moves are one of the funniest and best things to watch. He loves a good beat and gets into the music. He picked swimming back up and started soccer. He loves the Moana soundtrack and loves him some Maui. Star Wars are still his number one favorite, however, he has gotten into Ninja Turtles recently as well. He loves to play with Kyler’s Barbies and Shopkins which causes quite the fight sometimes. He is also obsessed with Legos and more importantly, the minifigures.

 He is the real life cookie monster. His favorites are sugar cookies or golden Oreos but is finally coming around to chocolate. He was never the biggest fan but he is starting to eat it more and more. He still LOVES his broccoli, fried rice, spaghetti, chicken nuggets, waffles, pancakes, yogurt, and noodles.

He absolutely adores Kyler. While they fight at times, they are each others best friend. He is getting better at sharing his toys with her and they could just play for hours. We went through a rough patch around after the holidays where he was so mean to her but he is back to his loving self and they are getting along great again. I had no idea what to expect with Lincoln but he is amazing with him. He has never shown a side of jealousy and loves being a big brother. He likes to help when Lincoln cries and will give him his paci or sing him a song to get Linc to stop. It’s so sweet and adorable and I can’t wait to see how they interact when Lincoln gets a bit older.

Hud also likes Mickey Mouse, Maui, PJ Masks, Stormtroopers, Stormtroopers or and Stormtroopers. He is still into the Hulk and other superheroes and likes to watch their TV shows and movies. He has a good time at Disney but seems to be a bit more timid than his big sister. He will go on a roller coaster but he definitely not has fearless as she is. He loves to read books at night and some of his favorites are Don’t Push the Button, Dragons Love Tacos, and his dinosaur books.

He is moving up to pre-school this year (same school but more structure and uniforms) and looking forward to his progression. For a while, he was the oldest in his classroom and that was creating some behavioral problems 🙂 Ya know, like taking your shoes off and throwing them at your teacher or hitting your friends. We really pushed for him to move up a class so instead of being the oldest, he is one of the younger ones and that has seem to help a lot. He can’t push them around now and things are much better.

Hudson is 33 pounds and 39 inches and a little beanpole. I have a feeling he is like Chris and will continue to gets taller without filling out! His 2t bathing suits are still slightly big haha. Other than that, he is wearing 3t shorts and shirts and size 10 shoes. He has been completely potty trained for a while now and is great using the potty.

We love you Hudson! You give us a run for our money but we wouldn’t want you any other way!

Hudson: Twelve Months/One Year/52 Weeks!

29 Mar

Happy Birthday Hudson!!!!! Hudson is 1 year old today!

As you know, Hudson continues to be my little sweetie…. and such a FLIRT! He makes eyes at all the girls and the smile he gets on his face is just ridiculous! I mean I can’t blame the ladies for loving him…. just look at him! ❤ He is all about moving right now. He doesn’t sit still for a minute. He climbs, crawls, pushes, smashes and throws just about everything and anything. He LOVES to play ball and that seems to be his favorite right about it. He is also start to “chase” us which he thinks is hilarious.

We tried mashed potatoes again the other day and he actually liked them! I think it was a texture thing and maybe he is over it? He still loves his steak, broccoli, yogurt, and applesauce. He gets by just fine with his 2 teeth. That, however, is about to change but 2 more teeth just broke through so I am thinking within the next month, he will have a few more.

He is still taking his time in walking. He cruises around really well and flies when he pushing something. He can walk pretty good holding onto one hand of ours so I think it will be pretty soon. I also think that when he does figure out the balance piece, he will be quick. Ugh, he gets into enough now, I am sure that is only going to get worse.

He LOVES to play ball right now. He has a pretty good arm too 🙂 He also LOVES his big sister Kyler. He thinks she is so funny and has a good time messing around with her. Which he does… already. I think those 2 will be BFF and fight like cats and dogs all at the same time.

We head to the doctor for his 1 year check-up Friday but last time we checked he was right around 25 pounds. He also measured at 32.25 inches last time at the doctor so I will be eager to see if he has grown at all. He is wearing mostly 18-24 month clothes but can fit into a lot of 2T as well. His feet grew recently so we are in size 6’s now. Big guy!

I am so sad our monthly/weekly photos are over, however, I am not sure how much longer I could have kept this up. He does not cooperate at all and it is so hard to get a good picture!

Hudson, Happy Birthday sweet boy!!!!!! We love you!

Hudson: 49 Weeks

7 Mar

Look at this happy guy! He is inching closer and closer to his his first birthday…. T minus 22 days. He is getting better and better with walking around but still not on his own yet. He can walk holding onto one hand but still hasn’t tried by himself. Any day now! He is teething pretty bad. He still only has 2 teeth but I imagine at least 2 more are going to break through soon. That, however, does not hold him back in the eating department. He gets along just fine with his 2 little teeth 🙂 Only a few more of these weekly updates left!

Hudson: Eleven Months

1 Mar

My baby only has one more month of being a baby! How??? I say it every month but it’s so hard to wrap my head around. In one month, Hudson will technically be a toddler. Well they may say that but not to me. I have decided he will be my baby forever 🙂 That may be hard to do considering the size of this guy. I mean look at him? He doesn’t look 11 months old.

Hudson is doing awesome. First and foremost, he is BUSY. Kyler was a very busy baby too but he is just different. All boy that is for sure. He doesn’t like to stay still. Kyler would stop for a bit and analyze her toys, study them, etc. Not Hud. He picks it up, looks at it, smashes it a few times, and moves onto the next thing. He squeals and laughs and babbles and really just has a good time. He gets into everything… you can’t turn your back on him for a second. He is climbing small things and seems to know what I DON’T want him to play with and goes right for it.

He is so close to walking! In the past 2 weeks he has really gotten braver in that area. He stands now for 30 seconds at a time, lets go quite a bit, cruises around furniture, and has started walking small distances with one hand. As long as he doesn’t turn into a scaredy cat (like big sis), he should be walking in no time. It is going to be so weird to see him up and walking!

He is still eating like a horse. Nothing new on that front other than he has definitely plumped back out 🙂 Those cheeks ❤

He moved into a new classroom at school! While I am sad to see him leave his infant teachers, it will be good for him to be with the older kids. Other things he is up to; he has starting to wave! He loves to clap his hands and he has blown Chris a few kisses… none for me yet 😦 He LOVES to hold socks. Like it’s a weird thing he does but he LOVES them. He crawls around the house with them and gets so excited if he sees one.

Sweet Hudson, I can’t believe you will be one soon.

Hudson: 47 Weeks

At 76 Weeks, Hudson is getting closer and closer to walking. His newest trick is letting go and standing on his own. He is making it anywhere from 5-30 seconds. He claps for himself and gets very excited.

He has quite the personality. He finds lots of different things funny and his laugh is adorable. A lot of times, I catch him and Kyler doing goofy things together and they crack each other up. So cute!

He is also getting much better with his sippy cups! I think we are going to start sending one of his milks in a sippy cup this week to see how he does. Hoping in the next week or so we can get him off the bottles and strictly a sippy cup… we shall see!

Hudson: 46 Weeks

15 Feb

My sweet Valentine is 46 weeks old! I think he recently grew in length and is filling back out now. Little guy has seemed to plumped up a bit this week 🙂 I am really not shocked considering how much he eats. Breakfast yesterday was 2 homemade pancakes, baby yogurt, melon and some cheerios. Lunch was 5 chicken nuggets and some fruit, and dinner was steak, potatoes, and broccoli with a side of Kyler’s uneaten potatoes. It’s never that he is just stuffed either. We just decide that he has had enough! Boys are sure different than girls! He is getting much better with his balance and showing signs that he wants to walk…. only a matter of time then watch out!

Hudson: 45 Weeks

8 Feb

He is becoming more and more difficult to photograph these days. He is so busy and on the move! Hudson is doing just great! He is starting to cruise and walk around more and more. He is letting go of one object and gripping onto another without falling down. He loves to push things around the house. All signs of gearing up to walk! I have a feeling that once he learns to walk, he will be running and getting into everything and anything as quick as possible. He started eating school meals this week! We are still sending in our food as he transitions. The teacher said he had 2 lunches the other day because he just kept eating. Sounds about right! He loves his food! He is splitting meals with Kyler now when we go out to eat. It’s great, we aren’t wasting food anymore. I would say he eats probably the same amount as Kyler at some meals. Hungry growing baby vs the picky toddler so it’s not too big of a shock there. Happy 45 weeks buddy boy!
