Yesterday Hudson turned eight months old! On one hand, I can’t imagine our life before him…but on the other I can’t believe he is SO old! Wasn’t he just a newborn yesterday? He’ll be one year old before I know it.
Height and Weight: According to my measurements Hudson weighs 21 pounds and is 27 and a half inches tall. Big boy! We go to the doctor next month for official stats.

Health: Other than the minor cold that all the kids at daycare have, Hudson has been pretty healthy!
Sleep: Oh boy. Sleep has been all over the place lately. But napping in the crib has improved big time! When we are home Hudson usually naps twice a day for 45 minutes to 2 hours. It doesn’t always happen but we are working on it. Naps at daycare still stink but are usually 30-45 minutes twice a day.
Hudson is still waking up once or twice at night to eat/comfort nurse. So basically I’m exhausted all the time. I try to remind myself that one day I’ll miss this…
Diet: Hudson still LOVES peas more than any other food. A close second is homemade applesauce. He prefers veggies over fruit and usually loves any food that is green. He doesn’t care too much for beets…we learned that last night! And still breastfeeding like a champ!
Clothes: 9 month clothing and 9 month or 12 month pajamas. Still wearing size 3 diapers. It’s hard to get a good photo of him these days because he is always moving!
Baby Gear Love: Hudson is a busy boy and loves his toys! He loves blocks, books, mommy’s spatulas, and anything that squeaks. We just got him this Bug Jug and he loves it! He is also obsessed with Wrigley’s toys and makes a beeline for them if Wrigley leaves them unattended.
Crying: This boy sure knows how to have a crying tantrum! He usually only cries when he’s hungry, tired, or has hurt himself (we’ve had lots of little bumps lately!). But Hudson also gets upset if heaven forbid his mommy walks out of the room. His little cries for me just break my heart!
Likes: playing with toys, opening and closing things, playing with and chewing on the strings on my sweatshirt, going for walks in his stroller, tearing apart magazines, banging blocks together, pulling Wrigley’s tail, clapping his hands, watching cars go by, and playing in Wrigley’s water bowl!
Postpartum: Can someone please tell me how my pre-pregnancy pants are all too big but my weight has stayed the same? Also, my skin hates me and is super sensitive to everything. Now that Hudson is already 8 months old I better get my booty in gear and loose these last few pounds.
Social: Hudson loves smiling and clapping his hands. He has to have whatever mommy or daddy have in their hands and he gets MAD if you tell him no! We have started baby proofing our house because Hudson is in to everything.
Milestones: Crawling! He is so proud of himself and loves his new found independence. If I walk out of the room he loves to crawl around to find me. We also think he is cutting a tooth (and hopefully that’s the reason he’s been a little cranky lately!) Hudson can also pull himself up from lying down to sitting and can clap his hands.
We just love our little guy!
