11 months

Sweet Hudson boy, you are 11 months old today. I can hardly believe how quickly we are approaching the one year mark! Every day with you is such a joy.

You are so much fun right now. You are almost completely a toddler, walking virtually everywhere. You will occasionally still crawl, but rarely, maybe once or twice a day. You are an explorer. You are bold & adventurous. You are quite the ham 😉 and bring much laughter to our house. Your laughter is contagious. You give the sweetest kisses. You have started bringing me a book or toy and climbing into to read or play together.

You love to figure out how things work. You will sit and open & close doors and cabinets; take lids off & put them back on; put things in & take them out of a container over and over and over. You love to wrestle with your daddy – to do anything with daddy really. Read a book. Work in the yard. You name it…you are daddy’s no. 2 fan! (because momma will always be no. 1).

You love to play with your trucks & cars. Your touch & feel farm animal book is still your most favorite – you will sit and look at it for a long time. When you get to the page with the pig you will wrinkle your nose and snort – you are learning so many new things.

You have 3 teeth now, 2 on the bottom and 1 on the top. I don’t know your measurements, we’ll find out next month at your 12 month appointment. You are still tall and skinny. You eat a lot of table food – sometimes as much as momma – but you go-go-go all day long. You still eat 3-4 bottles (6-8oz each) a day. You sleep from 7pm-7am and take 2 naps, one morning and one afternoon. Usually one is 2 hours and one is 1.5 hours. You are starting to manifest a little separation anxiety. Sometimes you wake up at night crying and the only explanation seems to be that you get scared, we hug, kiss and rock you for a few minutes and then you go right back to bed. You cry when I drop you off at class on Sunday mornings but only for a few minutes. Sometimes you cry if someone else tries to hold you, even someone you know well, especially when you are tired.

We cannot imagine life without you Hudson Mark & are so thankful to the Lord for the gift of your life!

He thinks this is the best game ever…absolutely no fear.

Still no camera cable. That little guy is really hiding! So instead…you get a video…yeah, I thought you’d be happy 🙂

I am the momma of an almost-toddler folks. He does still crawl…but less & less every day.

I mean really…who does he think he is!? 10 months old and walking for reals. Ca-RAY-zy.

He is in constant motion. Or asleep. There is no in between with the boy.

Not going to lie…sometimes he wears me out but this stage is SO MUCH FUN. I love love love my baby boy.

P.S. Sorry you have to turn your head sideways to watch this. I can’t figure out how to rotate it…
