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: 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: Seven Months

29 Oct

Hudson turned 7 months old today!!

This kid is just so much fun. He is honestly one of the sweetest and happiest little guys I have ever met and I am not saying that because he is mine. He is happy go lucky and is content just playing with toys and smiling at people. Speaking of his toys, he is getting more and more active. He loves his toys now and his favorite is the Vtech Learn and Discover Driver. He also loves anything with sound and lights so we have plenty to keep him busy.

He is OBSESSED with jumping in the bouncer now too. He just sits there, laughs and just jumps away. Great for when we are getting dinner ready.

He is still a big and healthy boy! He is wearing mainly 12-18 month shirts and still in the 6-12 or 12 month pants. His feet are just silly big and is just about outgrown most of his 4 shoes and starting to wear some 5s. We threw through the size 3 diaper stage and had to move into 4s. The kid was having blowouts and coming home with new clothes every day thus the new size.

We dropped a bottle, however, we upped the ounces in the others so he is getting about the same. He definitely loves his solids so I think as he gets older he will start to cut more and more milk out. He is an early bird though. He wakes me up at 5am to eat so I am going to see if I can start pushing him back a half hour just to give me a break. At 6 months we started giving him 3 meals a day and he is doing great. For breakfast, it always consists of a fruit and grain and then gets his veggies for lunch and dinner. He is eating chicken and turkey but he isn’t the biggest fan. Now that he is eating so much, I am trying to make more food to save on some money. He is getting much better at puffs and the texture so I think we will try small cut up bananas with cheerio dust soon. I think he will love it!

He is getting SO close tor crawling. I think within the next couple of weeks he will get it. He is always practicing and you can tell he just wants to go. I can’t believe we will have a crawling baby again!

He is starting to babble more and more. He loves the D sounds so we constantly hear dada but that is about it. He still has that nice high pitch scream to him but it’s mainly when he is happy. He is laughing a lot more now, especially when we make funny sounds or tickle him.

Hudson, you are quite the charmer! Happy 7 months cutie!

Hudson: Six Months

29 Sep

Wow. 6 Months already. I swear I just wrote his 5 month update like 4 days ago. These past 6 months have gone by much faster than my first 6 months with Kyler. While he is so much fun now, I am a bit sad that his sweet snuggly newborn days are long over.

Hudson loves his food. So much so that we added lunch to his day starting today. We had our check-up with the doctor and she said go for it. If he wants to eat more, give him more food. Chris and I joke (half-serious) that this boy is going to eat us out of house and home when he is older. He loves his fruits but tolerates the veggies. He really isn’t a fan of the green ones but oh well, gotta eat em! I do need to get better at making food myself, but, I am not going to stress about it. If I have time, great, if not, oh well. He is still drinking 5 times a day, however, we may adjust him to 4 depending on how he does with 3 meals a day. I would say he is getting about 28-30 ounces a day currently.

He is sleeping much better than the last update, however, he still wakes up about 1-3 times a night. Nothing bag, just wants his paci put back in. He is getting better reaching for it himself so hopefully this will get even better in the next few weeks. He is definitely not the sound sleeper his big sis is. He wakes up easily and is harder to get down for naps.

He is sitting up so well by himself now. He still topples over but I know that will change in the next couple of weeks. He is pushing up to his knees now so I have a feeling the rocking (and then the crawling) will be next! He has recently discovered that his jumper actually jumps so he is having a great time doing that.

He smiles all. the. time. I mean it. The kid will smile at anyone or anything. So happy go lucky. He is so photogenic too! A camera comes out and he is all smiles.

Hudson: Five Months

30 Aug

Huddy boy turned 5 months old yesterday. Here is what he was up to last month.

The biggest update from last month is that we have started solids. Based on our experience with Kyler (which was horrible), we were really dreading it. I was going to push until later but he was hungry. We bumped up  his bottles to 6 oz bottles and started solids. He loves it. We are already at 2 meals a day and I imagine that by 6 months we will be at 3. So far, he has had: apples, bananas, oatmeal, rice cereal, peaches, green beans, butternut squash, carrots, pears and sweet potatoes. He actually had quinoa today mixed in with his pears and loved it. I think we will try avocado today or tomorrow as well.

He has also started rolling over. He rolls from back to front but not too much the other way. That means he sleeps on his belly now. Crazy!

He is not sleeping so well. I don’t feed him in the middle of the night anymore and he isn’t too happy about it. He pops up quite a bit (stupid paci) but usually goes right back to sleep once he has the paci. However, he wakes up at like 4:30 freaking out looking to eat. I will not feed him before 5am so that is fun. The past few nights he has been going until 6am so I praying this is a trend.  If not, then we will have to let him cry it out sooner than later. I also think he has to get used to rolling over because now that he can, he is all over the crib.

He wears 9 month clothes and 6-12 month (Old Navy) clothes. I think I will was some of his 12 month clothes soon as we are getting close to that in the Carters brand. He is also wearing size 3 diapers. He has out grown his sun hat (again) so I need to get another one. He has a huge head!

He is such a happy and sweet little guy. He is pretty easy going unless he is tired or hungry. Other than that, he just goes with the flow. Happy 5 months!

Hudson: Four Months

29 Jul

Big Man is 4 months today!! See what he was up to last month.

About a week and half ago he had his 4 month check-up and everything went great. We talked about stopping swaddling (which we did) and that I could stop feeding him in the middle of the night. He is still waking up in the middle of the night but he has been making it longer and longer so hopefully that is a sign. Poor guy got his 4 month shots but he handled it like a champ.


Height: Just shy of 28 inches (guessing he is 28 now) putting him at 99%+ (he is way off)
Weight: 17 pounds, 14 ounces (again, guessing he is at least 18 now) putting him at 95%
Head: 17.13 inches putting him at 97%

He still hasn’t rolled over (and honestly doesn’t even seem that interested) but he picks his chest and head up really well. He tends to move his upper body side to side rather than roll (almost like he is going to get up and crawl). I am sure the rolling over will come. He had pretty good head control, however, he still has the occasional head bob. He loves to stand up. He has been having a good time in the exersaucer and jumperoo. He has started grabbing his toys and loves his snuggies. He loves to grab them and bring them up to his mouth. He drools must more than K did but not sure what that will mean. He is just a happy and content little guy for the most part. He LOVES to track you across the room. I feel like anywhere I go he is watching like a hawk. I have noticed him trying to watch some TV lately too when it’s on for Kyler so I need to start getting him on the floor or busting out some new toys to stop him from doing that.

I still have no plans to start food yet. I honestly think we will wait closer to 5-6 months but we will see how this next month goes. He seems fine without it, although, he has been watching us eat lately. K did too and she hated ALL foods until she was 7.5 months old. So no rush here 🙂

I think we will be retiring out infant car seat in the next month or so. We already have a convertible so not really a biggie. It’s just kind of crazy how quickly he is growing out of it. I only have 2 more inches to go! Plus, carrying him in the infant seat is killing me. He is just too big. I think this weekend we are going to try him out in the big seat of the stroller. He is certainly big enough to go in it, I just don’t know if he is strong enough. It does recline so that should help.

He is pretty much rocking the 6-12 month size right now. Because of that, I only buy 12 month things now. What size is this kid going to be in when he is One? Crazy to think about. We are still shoeless mainly because his feet are too skinny for how long they are. He is probably a size 3 right now.

As I have said before, he is such a happy and easy going boy. He really loves Kyler and loves to watch her. He is very observant in general. It’s so fun to see his little personality develop. Happy 4 months Huddy Boy!
