Hudson is 2 Months Old!

Hudson is 2 months old today! I can't believe how quickly the time is flying by with this little guy. He is just so sweet and patient and precious. Sometimes I feel bad that as the third child he doesn't get as much one on one time with me as his big brother and sister did (and I felt that way with Reese too!). But every second I have with him is so sweet!

Poor little guy got sick (again) on Saturday and has since been diagnosed with RSV. He was sounding so bad when he was breathing, and was barely eating, so I took him to see Dr. Jones on Monday morning. I had heard of RSV, but never had to deal with it with the older two because they were always home. Hudson is always home too, but now that Wyatt is at school he comes into contact with more germs, and brings them home to share! Wyatt went to the doctor right before Christmas with a cough as well, and Dr. Jones says that's probably where Hudson got it. Hudson's little lungs just take the illness a lot harder than Wyatt's.

He was kind of over having his picture taken! This is him mid-lip quiver!
Here is what Hudson is up to this month:
  • Weighed 12 pounds at the doctor on Monday
  • Wears a size 1 diaper (but he's moving up a size when we're done with this box).
  • Wears mostly newborn clothes, but has moved up a size in outfits. He cries and cries if I put him in 3 month sleepers because his little feet don't go all the way to the bottom.
  • Is still exclusively breast fed. He occasionally gets a bottle of expressed milk (like when we go out), but usually I feed him if I'm home.
  • He loves to be swaddled! If Hudson cries, it's probably because he misses his Swaddle Me. As soon as he's swaddled he clams up and usually falls right to sleep!
  • Sleeps all the time! Especially now that he's sick. He's been waking up around 1 and then again at 5:30 to eat and then going right back to sleep. I think the 5:30 feeding is becoming obsolete because he doesn't eat much and then wakes up around 7 to eat again!
  • He loves his swing - so much that he sleeps in it! With the congestion and everything, it's just better to let him sleep propped up - and his swing definitely props him up. We're going to be working on that once he's better.
  • Wyatt and Reese LOVE him - how do you think he got sick? Wyatt especially loves to kiss him "on his hair" and comes in to say hi and give him a kiss every morning. They both always walk up to him and say "Hey Hu-ud!"
  • He loves riding in the car!
  • He smiles at all of us, and coos when we talk to him. I love to have little conversations with him, and his smile is just so sweet.
  • He has an on again, off again relationship with his Baby Bumbo. He's been holding his head up on his own since the day he was born, so I tried this out a few weeks ago. Today he liked it so much he decided to fall asleep! Too cute!
