I just realized that I missed the past 3 months of Hudson updates…where did the time go?
Sweet boy…you are 16 months old today!
You are SO fun. You are all big boy these days. You run everywhere & talk constantly these days. Your vocabulary is exploding and you are getting more & more understandable. A lot of your words sound very much alike, but for the most part Daddy & I can always understand you – even if no one else can! You imitate just about everything that we say & do.
You love to make us laugh & do so often with your funny antics. You also love to show off for other people, especially when they come over to our house. You are a total ham.
You LOVE vehicles right now…especially trucks. ESPECIALLY the trash truck!! This fascination started a couple months ago. We anticipate Mondays (trash days) all week!! You also love tools, the garage, & the lawn equipment. You’ve recently been helping Daddy rake leaves in the yard. Oh – and brooms! You still love cleaning – vacuums, the swiffer, brooms, dusting, etc. I *really* hope that you keep this love 😉
You recently learned how to push yourself on your riding toys with your feet (this is also a marker of how much taller you’ve grown recently!), you are working on learning to use a fork & spoon while eating (we started this around 13 months I think), you love to throw balls & just recently have started kicking them as well – Daddy is teaching you to dribble a soccer ball.
You have officially dropped your morning nap. That happened within the last 2 weeks. As a result you now go to bed a little earlier at night, this is pretty normal & healthy as you are sleeping less during the day. So now you wake up between 7:30 and 8 most days and go to bed at 6:30. You go down for a nap right after lunch and sleep from 1-3.
Your life changed radically this week as we welcomed your brother Owen into the world. You love him already. You give him the sweetest hugs & kisses and bring him his blanket. When he cries you run to check on him. You are Mama’s big helper & throw his diapers in the trash for me. We pray that your love for one another abounds.
Hudson Mark – you are such a blessing! You bring so much joy & laughter to our home! We LOVE you and are so stinkin’ thankful to be your parents!
