Hudson is a ONE YEAR OLD!

Hudson is a one year old big boy!  This year has flown by, and I really can't believe that this big boy is the same tiny baby that I held for the first time a year ago!  He is such a joy and his smile just lights up my world!

Here is what he is up to this month:
  • He is about 25 pounds now! I can barely carry him - I usually pass him off to Daddy when we're out and about!
  • He wears a size 4 diaper.
  • He wears his 12 month sleepers and 12 and 18 month clothes. 
  • He has now completely transitioned to cow's milk, and he eats whatever we eat (cut up into small pieces of course!).
  • He is getting to be a better sleeper.   He usually goes to sleep at night somewhere between 6:30 and 7 and wakes up somewhere between 7 and 8.  Daylight savings didn't mess him up too much, thankfully!  I do sometimes wonder if he even naps though!  I usually put him down between 12:30 and 1 and he starts crying about an hour later.  I'm just not sure he sleeps during that hour - I think he might just stare at his crib toy the whole time.
  • He says Uh oh, Mama, Dada, touchdown, hi, Baba, Pop Pop, yes, up, thank you, hey and bye.  He also sometimes says "ee-ee" which I think might mean Reesie.  He signs "all done," and "up," and waves hi and bye. 
  • He has a cute little tongue wiggle that he does when he's thirsty!
  • He has 6 teeth!  The four in the front up top and the bottom two.  More are cutting right now.  He's not so happy about that.
  • He'll be getting his third hair cut next week!
  • He is still sleeping in his sleep sacks.  He LOVES them.
  • He is walking all over the place now.  It's so funny to see him walk everywhere.  He took his first steps on October 6th and gradually worked his way up to using walking as his preferred method of getting around.  We gate off the hallway that leads to the kids' rooms and the stairs, and keep the doors to our room and the half bath closed.  That way he can have the run of the playroom, living room and kitchen!
  • He loves the new Elmo at Target and dances to it in the store.  He will probably get it for Christmas!
  • He actually loves to dance to any music!  He looks so cute jamming.
  • He really seems like a toddler now.  I can't believe how big he is getting!
  • Expect two more detailed posts about his first birthday :).  We had a lot of fun celebrating with him!
Happy First Birthday Mr. H!
