It’s a few weeks late, but better late than never. Hudson has us wrapped around his little finger!
Hudson’s Three Month Time Capsule:
-Hudson, you had your first laugh this month! It is SO adorable! You usually start by making a sweet smiley “goo” sound and then when we smile back you laugh at us!
-Since I’m writing this post a little late, I get to tell everyone that you rolled over from your back to your front for the first time this month! (See, there are benefits to being late!!) You impress everyone with how well you hold your head up and how strong you are. Show me those guns, bud!
– This last month though has been MUCH calmer for you and MUCH less stressful for your mom and dad. You have been much more mellow and less fussy and have started sleeping for great big stretches at night- thank you!!!! We have been having a fun summer and life has gotten much more settled.
-Swinging in your baby swing is your favorite way to snooze. You share a room with mommy and daddy still since we are in such a small apartment and most nights you start off in the swing and then get transferred to the crib when we come to bed. Every once in a while, you will let us lay you down in the crib right off the bat, but not usually. You will outgrow the swing soon and we are a little afraid of how that will go, but hopefully you will rock it! (No pun intended!)
-Your sisters still dote on you and are so very sweet to you! Charlotte helps you be happy in the car (well, she tries!) and Lila will make sure everyone knows to be quiet when you are sleeping. I can’t wait to see your relationship with them continue to grow.
-This month, you had your first trip to the beach! You *loved* taking naps on the beach and hanging out with family. You got to hang with Nana, Pops, Uncle Adam and your cousins, Zoey & Levi, along with Aunt Carly & Dave.
-Your head is as fuzzy as a little peach, except for that endearing bald patch on the back! We love rubbing your sweet noggin’ and sometimes that puts you right to sleep!
-The squeaky wheel must have gotten oiled, because you no longer make that funny squeak sound when you eat anymore. You grew out of it just like the doctors (including your auntie Dr. Katie!) said you would.
-You weigh somewhere in the 11 pound range which puts you at the 10% for weight, but are longer at almost 75%. I’m not sure how long it will stay that way though because you have been eating nonstop lately!
-The construction of our new home began this month! The foundation was laid at the end of July! And now in mid-August it is really taking shape! It’s exciting to think about moving in this fall! We can’t wait to do your nursery all over again! The builders have told us that we aren’t allowed to paint at all for a WHOLE YEAR or they won’t repair drywall damage…won’t even touch it. This will be very hard for your Mommy, but I’m sure Daddy is pretty happy about that!
