I can’t believe my baby is going to be one next month!!! He’s growing up way too fast!
Height and Weight: Hudson weighs 23 pounds and is 29 inches long.
Health: Other than a minor cold, he’s been pretty healthy this month!
Sleep: Hudson sleeps through the night (10-11 hours) about 90% of the time. He woke up last night (of course!) crying….I think teething is to blame for this one. I’m so thankful for a baby that finally sleeps! Usually we try to put him to bed around 7:00-7:30 but lately he’s been fighting bedtime like a champ and goes down around 8:00 or sometimes 8:30. And once he didn’t go to sleep until 9:30! It doesn’t matter what time he goes to bed, he’s usually up by 6:30 a.m.! As for naps, I can usually count on a good 2 hour morning nap, but the afternoon nap is usually hit or miss.
Diet: Hudson is still drinking breastmilk throughout the day but also enjoys water and apple juice. His favorite foods are black beans, cheese, watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, bread, turkey, and puffs. And if you are eating a popsicle, you better share it with him. Or there will be a major meltdown.
Clothes: Hudson is wearing size 12 month clothing and pajamas…although a few of his 12 month pajamas have been put away because he’s too tall for them. He still wears size 3 diapers.
Baby Gear Love: Anything Hudson can push around to help him walk is a favorite this month. Toys, buckets, a big box, chairs…you name it!
Likes: Hudson LOVES to walk while holding on to a toy or mommy or daddy’s hands. This boy never sits still. He also loves it when you sing the “wheels on the bus” song to him. He loves to go on walks in his stroller and loves to smile at everyone. Hudson is constantly “talking” and has the cutest voice I’ve ever heard!
Dislikes: He does not like holding still for a diaper change or having his face wiped off after dinner.
Social: Hudson started swim lessons this month! He totally didn’t know what to think of the big bathtub and looked really confused the entire time. He did really great and didn’t cry, even when he was dunked under water. He started to enjoy splashing around in the water during his very last lesson last week, so we are thinking of doing lessons again in a few months.
Milestones: We have a 3rd tooth! And the 4th one will probably show up any day now. Both of the new teeth are on the top and in the front. We also upgraded him to a big boy car seat and he likes it so much better!
We love you big boy! Next month you’ll be one whole year old….and I can’t believe it! You have filled our lives with so much joy. I don’t know what we’d do without you!
