Two whole months since I last blogged…I think that might be a record! There are so many reasons for my lack of posting that I may or may not go into later. First, Hudson is a madman and keeps me moving! When he goes down for naps…Read More
NINE MONTHS!!! The last nine months have gone at a really great pace; not too fast, not too slow. But it’s weird to think that in only three months he’s going to be one. I swear, it was just Christmas and he was only six months old. Each month just keeps getting more and more fun, though. As he develops and gets more interactive, we keep having the best times. He really is so great!
We had his nine month appointment earlier today and were surprised by his stats!! At his six month appointment, he was in the 11th percentile for weigh, 0 percentile for height, and 57th percentile for his head. Things have changed so much!! He weighs 17 pounds 1 oz (5th percentile), is 27 inches tall (12th percentile!!), and is in the 33rd percentile for head. He has only grown three inches, but that made a big difference in the percentiles, which is good! And it’s normal for babies to thin out as they start getting mobile, which he definitely has! Around my birthday he finally started to be able to scoot forward instead of only going backwards. I thought he’d be crawling by the end of my birthday weekend, and it only took him a bit longer than that! Early last week he started to crawl with purpose. It only took him about two days of crawling to realize that he could finally get where he wants to go by himself. We put the baby gate up over the weekend because he got really fast very quickly.
He’s still not eating any solids besides purees and mashed bananas, but his doctor assured me today that he’ll get there and that I don’t need to worry. My sister-in-law also gave me a lot of good ideas of different things to try that aren’t just baby purees, so I’m excited to see how he likes those.
Dad is currently his favorite, and the best part of his day is when dad gets home from work. But when it’s time for a bottle and bed, he always reaches for me, which is super sweet. He’s my little buddy and I absolutely love spending all day with him. Like most parents (probably), I really miss him when he goes to bed. I always tell Brandon how I want to go wake him up, or at least hold him while he sleeps, but I always resist the temptation!
Hudson has started sleeping SO well! Last night he slept from 7:45 until 6:45 this morning, had three ounces of milk, then went back to sleep until 8:00 when I finally woke him up. Normally I would have just let him sleep, but I wanted to make sure he was on a good schedule for his appointment. Joke was on me, because I still had to wake him up from his first nap! I’m just hoping his night sleep continues to be so good.
I think that’s everything for this month’s update. He really is just so much fun, and I can’t wait to keep watching him grow!
Well, I’ve been 28 for five days now, and I’m not really sure that anything has changed. But I am sure that this is how people wind up saying “where has the time gone” when they hit fifty. Some days I feel I was just in high school, and other days I feel like I’ve lived a…Read More
Have you seen the episode of The Office where Michael hits Meredith with his car, and then she has to go to the hospital? And when Michael walks in with some of the gang, he looks at Meredith and says peacefully, “She’s in a…Read More
Eight months!! Holy moly! I can’t believe Hudson has been here for this long. It has gone fast, but not too fast. I think it’s going at the perfect speed actually. We are enjoying every single day and love watching him grow and develop. Honestly…Read More
I think I say this each time I blog, but blogging has been hard for the past seven months. In this case, I’m not talking about the lack of time. Hudson actually took awesome naps this week, and I took advantage of them by cleaning the house, lounging…Read More
I’ve realized what causes me to not blog frequently. Dumb short naps!! Hudson has been taking thirty minute naps for the last who knows how long and I can’t get anything done. But today he is napping so well!! I put blankets over his window to block…Read More
Christmas makes me cry at least once a day, and having Hudson here just amplified that. Everything was so fun with him here. He was so intrigued with the trees and the lights. Actually, he would just yell at the lights…Read More
