Hudson's One Year Check Up

Hudson's one year check up was on Wednesday.  Because Brian has been out of town since Tuesday (he's coming back today - yay!), I got to take all three kids to the doctor for the first time ever.  By myself.  It was an adventure!

I let Wyatt and Reese roam around the room at their appointments when they were little.  Needless to say, Hudson spent most of his time on my hip.  I was kind of busy convincing Wyatt that the dialysis patients on the floor below us needed their blood pressure to stay low, and him jumping up and down wasn't helping!  Even with a "bag of tricks," Wyatt was still a little bouncy.  Reese was an absolute angel.  She watched everything Dr. J did and stayed so quiet.  I did tell our UNC educated doctor about her decision to go to Duke.  He told her to find a new doctor!

Anyway, back to Mr. H.  He is:
22 lbs., 12 ounces (47th percentile)
28.5 inches (10th percentile - ouch!)
18.5 head circumference (66th percentile)

Hudson is walking, talking, and signing.  He showed all of his "tricks" off during his exam.  He was an absolute angel!

...Until the shots.  He ended up with his final shots yesterday - and we also got his flu shot while we were there. He was a not a fan, and it was my first time being the one to stay with him (any of them, really) while he got shots!  That's usually Daddy's job!

I can't believe that he's a year old, and it's a little hard to watch him get bigger because he's not my little baby anymore!  But I am hoping that he grows an inch or two over the next three months!
