Hudson is 10 Months Old!

He is getting to be such a big boy!  He looks so big now that he has his hair cut, too!  I can not believe that he is 10 months old.
 He could barely sit still when we were taking his pictures today!

 Here is what Hudson is up to this month!
  • He is 20 pounds and some change. He feels a lot heavier than that though!
  • He wears a size 4 diaper.
  • He wears his 9 month sleepers and mostly 9 month and 12 month clothes. 
  • He still gets his milk from mommy, and he loves his solids!  He is still eating some baby foods, but he is also eating our meals.  In the last week he has had Cheerios, waffles, oatmeal, spaghetti, chicken, cheese, strawberries, pineapples, bananas, corn, and a lot more!  On the "milk front," weaning has begun!  He was eating 4 to 5 times a day, and he's now down to three.  Over the next month I'd like to cut him down to two, and then he can have milk in the morning and at night with Wyatt and Reese.  I'm thinking the last month I will just pump and mix what I have with the organic milk the kids drink.  That's what we did with Reese, and it worked perfectly. 
  • He is getting to be a better sleeper. We have been struggling some with nap times (or length of naps).  He sleeps at night from whatever time I put him down (usually 7:30 or 8ish, but earlier if he hasn't napped), until about 6:30.  He's still napping about an hour after he wakes up, and I've started feeding him around 6:30 and putting him back down.  That morning nap is really causing some problems with the afternoon nap, and it will really get in the way when school starts tomorrow!
  • He says Dada, touchdown, hi, Baba, Pop Pop, and bye.  He signs "all done" and waves hi and bye.  Last week I asked him where Daddy was and he pointed at Brian and smiled.  It sounded like he was saying "Wy Wy" the other day, which is what we call Wyatt around him.
  • He is crawling everywhere, and has learned to crawl up onto things.  Reese's new minnie mouse chair was a favorite, and then he discovered steps!  Yikes!  Needless to say, the baby gates are back out!  He is also pulling up onto everything and then creeping.  I'm waiting for this little guy to takes some steps!
  • He has 6 teeth!  The four in the front up top and the bottom two.  I think more are cutting on the bottom right now.  His teeth are huge!
  • He had his first hair cut this month, and it has been confirmed.  The boy has some major cowlicks!
  • He is still sleeping in his sleep sacks, but they're going bye bye soon.  He is now standing in his crib and creeping along (and yes, the bed has been lowered), and the sleep slacks aren't super safe for that.  He has also started "teething" on his crib so we have to buy a protector for that.
  • He is so precious and such a little cutie.  Sometimes I just pick him up and want to squeeze him so hard.  I can't believe how close he is to turning 1!
