Hudson: One Month

Hudson turned one month on our 4th anniversary, October 5th....so I'm a little late on his one month post. Being a mommy is hard work, but I LOVE it! I can't believe my little guy is already one month old! It's going by so fast.

 Weight: Not exactly sure....but at 3 weeks he was 9 pounds 7 ounces (up from 7 pounds 9 ounces at birth)...so I'm going to guess he is at least 10 pounds now. And he is 21 inches long (up from 20 at birth). 
 Health: We've got a healthy little guy!

Sleep: Sleep....what's that? Hudson sometimes sleeps 2 hours and sometimes 4. He is unpredictable at the moment...good thing I'm on maternity leave!

Diet: 100% breast milk. I'm so thankful that breastfeeding has been easy and that Hudson eats like a champ.

Clothes: Hudson has grown out of his newborn clothes! I was so sad to pack them away. Right now he wears 0-3 months.

Baby Gear Love: Right now the only gear he loves is the moby wrap. He loves to be close to his mommy....and I'm not complaining one bit! He's starting to like his swing, but not as much as I had hoped. 

Crying: Hudson cries when he is tired, hungry, or gassy. He's usually fussy for about two hours before bedtime. Hopefully that ends soon!

 Likes: Eating! And taking naps on my chest. He also LOVES taking a bath. It calms him down when he is fussy at night.

 Postpartum: Let me just say this...c-sections are zero fun. It took me about 3 weeks to recover and actually feel a little more normal. By 4 weeks I hardly ever notice my incision. However it is true what they say about breastfeeding...it totally helps take the weight off! I'm not back to my pre-pregnancy weight yet but the pounds have been coming off without much effort. 

Milestones: Making eye contact, sleeping longer stretches (sometimes!)

LOVE this post and looking forward to monthly updates! Little Hudson is growing so nicely and he is too cute!

I hope he starts giving you some more sleep soon - the sleeping through is a dream come true! I am also so sorry about your C-section recovery and glad you are all okay now - it is crazy how everyone is so different. I had zero pain or discomfort from day 1!

He is such a cutie pie. I remember when Emery had that fussy time too -- we would always just take after dinner walks to calm her down. But I'm glad the bath works for Hudson! So happy for y'all!

He is just so dang cute!! Hopefully he starts sleeping better. Those 2/4 hours don't sound fun though!

I'm sure you're a great Mom. Keep up the good work!
