Hudson's One Year appt

Another successful round of shots and he weighed in at a strong 23 lbs and 30.5 inches. Perfectly in the 50% still and healthy as a giant Ham.

Way ahead of schedule with his walking, talking, eating, bottle reducing, and was showing off to the doctor all his cool tricks.

It is so nice to have just a happy kid with a bright smile and the poof of red hair on top to just make everyone smile.

and after a nice dinner out where we launched our plate across the room with macaroni on it he slept off his long day till 5:15.

What a cutie!

So many Pictures and So Little Time

9 months, our 6 year anniversary, 10 months, it has flown by. we had our first HOKIE tailgait with Brian and Katie, am eating big boy food and using our walker to run around the house, have some cute pics hanging in my crib and with my parents, bark at the dogs out the french doors and lots of other fun stuff.

Hudson is beyond crawling he is cruising and scooting and climbing on everything. He is talking hi's and bye's and mom's and dada. He says dog and waves and I can't believe how smart and awesome he is. More and more everyday I am so impressed with him. He also has learned a few new things which still our impressive but not as sweet. We throw tantrums and scream and hate to sit still for a diaper change but it all makes me laugh as even while screaming he is still cute. i am sure he does not appreciate that we are giggling at him screaming but it is soooo cute!!!

Adam and I are great and had a lovely Hokie weekend with out friends and we are enjoying winter coming and cannot believe we are coming up on a year soon since our parenthood came upon us. We are loving the house and have our schedule and lives pretty well back in the groove and i have to say I love the predictability's of the days again.

We are looking forward to hunkering down for a lovely winter and season coming up with fun and Hudson everyday.

9 months old!

Hudson is 9 months today and such a big boy! He is standing up in his crib, cruising around, talking to us, sleeping in, running in his walker everywhere, jumping like he is on a moonbounce on the floor, eating some people food and stage 3 for some meals, and overall doing great.

His checkup was perfect and we love his new pediatrician. At 28 inches and 20.7 lbs (much less than I thought he was) Dr. Jones has him 50% all the way around. In height, weight, and head size. So he may physically be perfectly average at 50% but as we all know he is the cutest most amazing baby ever everywhere else and certainly not average.

I love waking up every morning to him clanking his toys or pacifier against the rails of the crib like he is in jail. Laughing and seeing him smile and jump up and down when we walk into the room to get him in the morning is amazing and quite a way to start the day. Great Baby, Great Husband, Great job!, Fantastic House! Things are good. and....Adam and I are celebrating 6 years together this Sunday. Woo Hoo!

Julia & Julie

Ok now I want to maybe learn french cooking after watching that movie. Nothing too buttery or creamy (as we don't need that in our house) but certainly learning more than pouring canned chili out of a can would be nice. We will see if I have time to do just one recipe a week at the most.

Exciting Few Weeks

Hudson is beginning to crawl, Adam is doing awesome, I am working for Tele-Works again and oh yeah WE ARE MOVING.

We are very excited and finally moving forward as all the past few months have come to a close. I never would have thought this was how it turned out but sometimes life just makes decisions for you and it all turns out ok. God had a plan and certainly took his sweet time to show it to us and now we have our house sold in Raleigh in 4 days a new house a week later and the movers come next week.

Crazy but fun and pictures to come soon and video of Hudson crawling More and into everything within eye level.

6 months appointment

18.5 lbs. 25 inches healthy and happy and teething. Is in the 25% for height and 50% for weight. Did great with his shots and is playing with daddy right now.

6 months already

Hudson is 6 months old today and such a good boy. We go for our 6 month check up on friday but he is about 18 lbs and probably around 22-24 inches

He is wearing 9 month clothes in some and 12 in others and he just laughs with us or at us all day. He is sleeping till 7 am every morning and the cough has finally subsided some that kept waking him up.

We are so happy he is 6 months but already i get sad when I think he is growing so fast. He grabs my lips now and says mamamamama when he really wants something from me and he loves the outdoors so we spend a lot of time walking and being on the porch and looking at nature.
Adam and I feel we have this perfect little boy who is so much fun to be around every day and alot of times we just watch him sleep and also wait for him to wake up. Nothing more weird than waking up and seeing your parents staring at you but he greets us every morning with a huge smile (his daddy's) and a bright bunch of new red hair coming in.
Cake tonight....for mom mainly...but Happy 6 months baby!

5 months and so darn cute

lots of cute pictures of Hudson outside with mommy and you can't deny he looks like daddy when you see them together. We are doing well and enjoying our time together. Summer is here and Hudson is flipping over and eating big boy food (pureed of course). We are excited for upcoming trips to the beach, Virgina, Florida, Colorado, his baptism on July 5th in Colorado and with Nana and Pop-Pop, his first flight coming up to see his great grandmother Dale in Florida.

Also after a day at school which involved some spit up and prunes he came home in an outfit only the Sharps and duck lovers could appreciate of Camo and duck pants. It was the funniest outfit ever.
