Sorry this post is so late…..I came down with some sort of stomach bug this morning! Can’t catch a break around here.
Height and Weight: According to my measurements Hudson weighs 20 pounds and is 27 inches tall. (Chalkboard digital sticker from Little Baby Garvin)
Health: Hudson had his first eye infection (which he passed along to me, of course) but he was better 24 hours later.
Sleep: He’s usually up once at night and goes back down pretty easily. Except sometimes he doesn’t…little stinker! I was SO sick last week that I slept in the guest room while my husband slept in our room with the baby monitor. Hudson chose those nights to sleep through the night! And then of course once I took the monitor back he started waking up again. And he’s still a champion nap fighter! We are working on napping in the crib…sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Tell me moms: When does napping get better?
Diet: Breastmilk for all meals except dinner. Hudson usually eats two veggies each night. So far he likes squash and sweet potatoes and LOVES peas. He doesn’t really care for fruit and makes a sour face whenever we give it to him! We’ve been making his baby food and so far it’s been pretty easy. I’ll post about our process soon.
Clothes: 9 month clothing and pjs and size 3 diapers.
Baby Gear Love: One word to describe Hudson is busy! He loves all his toys, Scout the puppy, toy balls, puzzels, and bascially anything we have in our hands. He still loves his jumperoo and lately loves playing with his leapfrog table toy (I took the legs off) that I picked up at a church sale for $5!
Crying: Hudson only cries when he is super tired or hungry. Or when you don’t let him have something you are holding.
Likes: He likes to watch us dance and sing to him and loves it when we clap our hands.
Postpartum: Other than being sicker than I have ever been in my life (horrible cold, sore throat, coughing, double eye infection) last week I’m feeling pretty much like myself. The hair loss has finally started to slow down!
Social: Hudson was moved up a level at daycare and is now playing with babies that can crawl! It has inspired him to try and move too….we are SO not ready for that! I can’t put him down on our bed anymore and expect him to stay put…so sad! But it is pretty cute to see that little booty try and crawl.
Milestones: Hudson can sit up on his own and has started to roll from his back to his tummy. Hand-eye coordination has improved and he has started to get upset if he doesn’t get his way. In no time he’ll be crawling, I’m sure!
Time is moving too fast!
