14 months

Hudson is 14 months this week and I really have to start documenting more. He is such a funny kid and I want to remember everything about this age. He loves to jabber. He runs around the house jabbering away, yelling and pointing at everything. He is actually really cuddly. He loves to run into my arms and give me a big hug. He lays his head on my shoulder all the time. Also, he does this funny thing where he walks around the house with his hands behind his back. He cuddles all of his stuffed animals and puts his toy phone up to his ear and says, "Ya, ya, ya!" Recently, he started saying, "Hi Dad!" It is the cutest thing ever. Oh and he has tons and tons of energy and throws lots of tantrums :) haha! We are so in love with this boy. At least once a day Justin and I have a conversation where we basically just talk about how cute Hudson is and how is it possible that we made him?! Ha! He is by far the best thing that has ever happened to us.

Today Hudson had a runny nose and a cough and a fever. We watched Frozen (twice) and we didn't put on our pants all day but that's ok because today was awesome.

The last 3ish months

The last few months have been awesome. Hudson is getting busier and busier every day. He started walking exactly 2 weeks before his first birthday and he definitely prefers walking over crawling. He still doesn't LOVE food but there are certain foods he will tolerate haha picky picky. We have made a few trips to Disneyland and spent lots of time with family. I love my days with Hudson, whether it's spent at Disneyland or just hanging around the house. This kid keeps me entertained, always! I love him more than I could have ever imagined. I still miss him when he's asleep and I could watch him play with his toys and walk around the house exploring all day long. Love you H. 

Hudson turns 1

It was a party at the park and it was perfect. The weather was perfect. The company was perfect. Oh and Hudson was perfect, of course! He walked around the party waving and smiling at everyone. When it came to eating the cake, he had NO idea what to do but his cousin Braden stepped in to help him :) It was sad because Justin couldn't be there but you better believe we had another party as soon as I got back to Arizona. Happy Birthday Hudson, we love you!

9 months

9 months has come and gone and OH MY GOSH I could not be more in love with this babe. He is so so so funny. I'm being serious! He has the funniest facial expressions ever. His mannerisms and everything about him just make me want to kiss his face all day long. At his 9 month check up he weighed in at a whopping 17.4 lbs, which is the 11% percentile. His length and head size were more like the 65% percentile. He is still long and skinny and I love it. Speaking of long and skinny, he has been sooooo interested in food lately. Food has been one of his struggles. He will nurse and nurse all day long but I feel like I am forcing solids on him. He will eat certain things but not that much. Well anyway, the last week or so he has been wanting everything I eat and he has been chowing down on everything I give him! I am so happy! Hudson is crawling like a mad man and even walking with a little walker toy all around the house. He has been semi cuddly lately and Justin and I are loving it. He still sleeps 11-12 hours at night and takes two naps a day. He is very vocal and very busy. He will not sit still on my lap for more than 10 minutes, even if I have snacks and toys to entertain him. This makes church SO fun :) Ha! Oh and TEETH! He finally got some teeth. His first tooth was on top, which I though was weird, and then he got his bottom two front teeth. YAY! He is our happy, busy boy and we can't seem to get enough of him.




For Halloween, Hudson and I went to California. Justin was going to be working all day and all night (BOOOOOO) so my Mom flew us out to California to hang out with her and my Dad. We had a blast. We went to my parent's ward trunk or treat. We went to Disneyland and down to San Diego! It was a great trip and I love seeing my parents with Hudson. They love him so much and they get a kick out of every little thing he does. Oh an Hudson was a fox for Halloween :)

8 months

Tomorrow my baby is 8 months old. UGH! That just sounds so old. Hudson is a crazy little boy already. I thought yeah for sure he's busy but when seasoned Moms are telling me, Oh man he's busy, I'm assuming they know more than me. He is full blown crawling and pulling himself up to everything! He pulls himself up to the couch, all the chairs and the tv stand. He has had his fair share of falls but for the most part he is pretty stable standing up. Just recently in the last few days, he has started to take a few steps along the couch. Oh man he is determined! If he sees something he wants or if there's something he wants to do, you can't stop him. These days taking pictures of him is nearly impossibly unless Justin is home. So I just chase him around the house snapping pictures and hoping a few turn out. He is an extremely happy baby. He is always smiling and laughing. I am excited and nervous for what is to come for this crazy little guy.
