18 Months!

Hudson turned 18 months old on Friday…yep, a year and a half. I really can’t believe it! I feel like he is changing each and every day. He seems to be a sponge the way he is learning lately. It is like something clicked and he is starting to use more words, point to anything you ask him to, and is figuring out how things work. One of the cutest things he is doing these days is taking Kelly and I where he wants to go. For instance, if he wants to go outside, he comes and grabs your hand and leads you to the back door. Or, if he wants to color, he will get your hand and lead you to the cabinet with his coloring books and crayons. It is precious! This has to be one of the most fun ages so far, minus the temper tantrums. (And boy can he throw a good one!) We went to his 18 month well visit Friday and I have to say it was nice being at the doctor’s office for a well visit instead of a sick visit this time. He hardly gained any weight from his 15 month check up and actually lost weight from his sick visit…poor little guy didn’t eat for almost 5 days so go figure! Here are his fun little stats: weight 22.4 (8%), length 32 ½” (55%), and head circumference 19” (63%). Like I say each time, he is long, lean, and has a big head. How can you not love stats like that?!?
Good morning sunshine! You are a year and a half old today. :)
Noni got Hudson a balloon when he was sick and I got some cute 18 month pics on Friday of him playing with it. I might have to start buying a balloon more often because this simple thing has been a lot of fun this past week!! Who knew?


Kelly and I took Hudson to get his pictures taken on Saturday. We didn't intend on him holding a football, but once he saw it he had to have it. He alternated between the regular football and the little one. Maybe he will play football one day like his daddy. :)





What a joy and blessing this little man is!
