Happy 5 Months Hudson!

February 11, 2013

Height and Weight: Hudson weighs roughly 19 pounds and is 26 inches long. That is one pound and one inch up from last month. We love our chunky guy!

Health: Hudson FINALLY got over the cold he had for most of December and January. And two weeks later is was back. Otherwise our guy is great! We had to visit the Children's hospital to get an ultrasound of his hips as a precaution because I was born with dislocated hips and had to wear a hip brace for a year.....luckily Hudson's hips are perfect! He hated the ultrasound because he had to hold still and all he wanted to do was kick his legs! Thankfully he settled down once the tech gave him a light up toy to play with.

Sleep: Hello 4 month sleep regression! Hudson was up once a night all month. But even with that one wake up he is still a pretty good sleeper, usually sleeping 5 to 7 hour stretches, waking up to eat, and then sleeping 3-5 more hours. And we officially said goodbye to the swaddle this month! We transitioned him in to a sleep sack and it has been great. Hudson loves having his hands free to suck on!

Diet: 100% breast milk.We are going to exclusively breastfeed (which means no solid food) for the first six months of life, per the recommendation of of the American Academy of Pediatrics. You can read about my adventures with breastfeeding and pumping here

Clothes: Hudson is wearing size 6 months in clothing and just started wearing 9 months pjs. And size 3 diapers.

Baby Gear Love: Hudson still loves his Jumperoo and any toy that can fit in his mouth. Another favorite is
the Feel and Learn book....he loves the crunchy noise it makes when the plays with it.

Crying: Hudson only cries when he is hungry....or when he is sick of me sucking the snot out of his nose.

Likes: He loves to giggle, splash in the bathtub, watch Wrigley play, look out the window at the snow, bounce in his jumper, put everything in his mouth, smile at mommy and daddy, and "talk." The teachers at daycare say Hudson loves talking and looking at the other babies....right now he his favorite is a little girl named Lilly. Oh boy, we are going to have a heartbreaker on our hands!

Postpartum: When will the hair loss stop? It is crazy how much hair I shed every day!

Social: Hudson loves everyone and has such a huge smile on his face when someone talks to him. I had to go with my mom to a doctor's appointment and he charmed everyone in the waiting room with his chubby grin. The teachers at daycare have nicknamed him "Hudsy" and they get so excited when I drop him off in the morning....it makes me feel so good that they are loving on my little guy while I'm at work!

Milestones: Hudson can almost sit up on his own. He still needs the boppy for support but I imagine he'll be sitting without it in no time. He is a champ at holding his head up and will frantically crane  his neck around when he hears his daddy enter the room. He is also starting to be interested in anything we are eating or drinking and tries to grab it from us and stick it in his mouth.
