Yesterday Hudson turned 9 months old! My sweet little baby is growing so fast. I seriously love this stage. He is so fun and keeps us on our toes!
Height and Weight: Hudson has his 9 month check up yesterday and he is 22 pounds and 28 inches tall. We love our chunky monkey!
Health: Overall pretty good! He has a runny nose a lot thanks to day care.
Sleep: Okay. Sometimes he sleeps through the night.
Sometimes usually he doesn't. Naps have gotten a bit better and we can usually count on one 45 minute nap and one 1.5 hour nap. Sometimes the long nap is in the morning and sometimes it's in the afternoon. He still doesn't nap well at daycare though.
Diet: As you can see dinner time often involves a lot of goofing around! Hudson LOVES his oatmeal, cheerios, and applesauce and tolerates everything else. Even peas (which were a favorite last month) are often met with a sour face. He HATES bananas and gives us the most hilarious facial expressions when we dare to give it to him.
Clothes: Hudson is wearing mostly 12 month clothes but can still squeeze in to a few 9 month outfits. Jammies are all 12 months and he is still in a size 3 diaper. Monster jammies found here. We basically have almost every pair of jammies that The Children's Place makes!
Baby Gear Love: Hudson started pulling himself up to a standing position this month and LOVES any toy he can climb. I put the legs on his activity table (similar found here) and he just thinks it's the coolest thing ever. Hudson has been teething a lot this month and we both love these teethers you can stick in the freezer as well as these zo-li gum massagers.
pack n' play again to contain our little crawling machine! It's the only way I can get ready most mornings.
Crying: Hudson usually only cries when he is hungry or really tired. Or if I leave the room.
Likes: Spatulas, chasing Wrigley, playing with Wrigley's toys, splashing in Wrigley's water bowl, tickles from daddy, snuggling with mommy, exploring, and standing up.
Dislikes: Getting his face wiped, diaper changes, when mommy walks out of the room, being told no....just the usual stuff! Our little man is constantly getting in to trouble...but we love it!
Social: Hudson loves to smile and "talk" to people everywhere he goes. He wants to play with anything you are holding or wearing and loves to chew on necklaces and sweatshirt strings. His face lights up whenever he sees kids and he immediately wants to play with them. He is pretty outgoing but sometimes just wants his mama.
this walker last week and it has quickly become his favorite toy. He can also feed himself cheerios and gets so excited to see them. I tried giving him cut up blueberries to eat but he hated them!
We love you Hudson! You make our lives so much brighter.
