Hudson is all boy all the time. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being a boy mom.
I think if I had a daughter, I would feel the same way about princess dresses, hair bows, and ballet slippers. That’s the funny thing about motherhood. Whatever your child is in to, you are in to too. You embrace it and love it because whatever makes your child happy, makes you happy too. Your child becomes your favorite person in the whole world.
Hudson and I had such a good day yesterday. We played at a new bounce house place and slid down the giant slide hand in hand together. For an hour! But he held my hand the entire time and his face lit up with pure joy. We ate mac n’ cheese. We spent a ton of time outside and went for a long walk in our red wagon. These are the moments I will cherish forever.
Motherhood is my greatest blessing.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I also cherish the time I spent breastfeeding Hudson. Today I want to introduce you to a new resource that I think is really helpful if you are breastfeeding. It’s an app on your phone called iBaby.
Every nursing mother has at one point been fed up with scribbling notes on scraps of paper in the middle of the night to keep track of breastfeeding sessions. iBaby is an iPhone app now available in the app store ($0.99) that enables users to keep track of breastfeeding sessions by recording their time, duration, and side used. Data is stored in a daily summary page and can be retrieved and shared via email in a pdf format. The app also features a reminder so mothers can watch for early hunger cues.
