11 Months!!

Hudson is 11 months old today and all I can think is where has the time gone?? I cannot believe that in a month he will be one! That is absolutely crazy! This past month has been a busy one...well, Hudson has been a busy one!! He is everywhere these days. He loves crawling around and exploring. He especially loves exploring places that he shouldn't and then getting mad when mommy pulls him away ~ fun, fun! He finally said MaMa this month...yippee!!! Saying DaDa only was giving Kelly too much pleasure...ha! He also is waving bye-bye and actually said bye-bye for the first time today. Too cute! He is slowly but surely starting to chew his food ~ that is definitely something we are working on. He would prefer to swallow food whole which makes for lots of gagging at meal time. He has his two top teeth and two bottom teeth and two more top ones are almost through. I think teething is the only stage I wish would hurry up and pass...it is so hard on the little guy. :( Every other stage is so new and fun and I am trying to cherish them all since they pass so quickly. Oh how I love him!!
The pictures this month by his pillow didn't go so well. As I said above, he is BUSY and didn't have time to waste sitting next to a pillow...he had toys to play with! The minute I would sit him down, he was off! Here is the first try...

Second try...

I finally gave up and thought I would try sitting him on a chair next to his pillow with a monkey...as you can see, that didn't work either!
This is the only picture I got of him sitting up...oh well!
I have been wanting to get Hudson's picture taken in his bathing suit for a few months now. So, after receiving a great coupon last week I scheduled an appointment for Saturday. Kelly and I took him and here are a few of the funny shots they got. They actually had a beach scene (a little cheesy I know), but we thought it would be cute. He didn't like the sand at all, so we ended up putting him in a little chair for most of the pictures. Here are a few we got...
I just love this one...it cracks me up!

Our funny little guy!
Sweet baby!!!

Happy 11 months to such a happy guy! I've always thought he looks like Kelly, but that one picture of him by the pillow where he's still looks so much like you!!! Can't believe it's almost been a whole YEAR since he was born!
