Long and Lean!

Hudson had his 6 month check up today and besides the shots, it was great. I have determined that he is long and lean...just like his Uncle Geoff! He is 26 1/2 inches long which is the 46% and weighs 15 pounds 12.6 ounces which is only the 16%. Too funny! I asked Dr. Cook if his weight was OK and he assured me that it is. Dr. Cook said that he looks great, he is really strong, doesn't have the beginnings of any teeth and he will see him back in 3 months. Another good report...yea! Here are some pictures he took this past weekend...the first one is definitely my new favorite. I have an 8 X 10 of it sitting on an end table next to the couch so I can look at it all the time...that one definitely shows his personality! :)

6 Months!!

I say this every month, but...WOW...I can't believe Hudson is 6 months old!!! Where has the time gone? Time has NEVER gone by this fast in my life ~ it is crazy. Hudson continues to be the absolute light of my life. He changes every day and has the sweetest personality. He smiles and laughs all the time, but will definitely let you know if he is hungry or tired. He is exploring everything...mostly by putting anything and everything he can into his mouth. I call him my little observer because he studies and watches things intently. It is so cute! He rolls from his tummy to his back, but not back to tummy yet ~ he still gets stuck on his side. He loves bath time, rice cereal, flying through the air, being sung to, "talking", standing up, and attention from anyone ~ especially strangers. He has also started fake coughing which cracks me up! Life with him is more than I could ever hope or ask for. I feel so blessed!

Where else would his hands be, but in his mouth? :)
I made Hudson a 1/2 birthday cake...too bad he got peas instead of cake!
His first bite of peas...
Hmm...I don't know what I think about these...
Pretty sure I don't like these!!!
Yuck...these are disgusting!!! I think I'll spit them out. (Mommy doesn't blame me...peas are gross!)
Thank you for taking the peas away!
I am much better now!

Weekend Fun!

What a wonderful weekend! We had such a fun weekend with Hudson this weekend. Friday night, Noni came over and we ordered pizza. Hudson was playing on a blanket when she arrived and when she sat down to play with him he started laughing for about 5 minutes. It was hilarous!! They were huge belly laughs that had us rolling. If only we knew what he was thinking sometimes. On Saturday, Kelly and I took Hudson to the Dallas Arboretum. It was such a beautiful was in the 70's. We walked the entire Arboretum and took a lot of pictures. He was worn out by the time we left. We decided while we were there that we will go back often when the weather is is just such a nice place to spend the day with family.

I so look forward to every other Monday...that is playgroup day! Hudson doesn't really "play" yet, but I know he will soon! It is so fun watching the boys grow up and change. It was absolutely beautiful outside this Monday, so we took the boys outside for their picture. (We missed Kara and Tanner this week!) The three younger ones are on their tummies and the two older ones are sitting up. It is crazy the difference that only a few months makes. Hudson and Porter attempting to play!
