Hudson is One!

September 9, 2013

 I can't believe my baby is one. I can't even remember what life was like before him...but at the same time, I can't believe it's been a year! My baby is growing so fast.

We just got back Hudson's one year photos and I'm in love! Miranda did our maternity and newborn photos, so it was so nice to catch up with her again.

Height and Weight: We'll know for sure this week at Hudson's one year check-up, but as far as I can tell he weighs around 23 pounds and is 29 and a half inches tall.

Health: Hudson has had a few colds and temperatures, but nothing too bad. He busted his lip for the first time this weekend after falling on the ground. There was blood everywhere (well, maybe that's an exaggeration...but if you know me, you know I do not deal well with blood!). His lip is a little swollen and he has a scab, but otherwise he's fine. I, on the other hand, will never recover. 

Sleep: Hudson usually sleeps 7:30pm-6:30am. We have a rough night every now and then, but for the most part he's pretty consistent.

Diet: Hudson started eating the "big boy food" that they provide at daycare! Which means I haven't had to make purees lately...yay! I've been making us green smoothies with berries, yogurt, juice, and spinach in the morning and Hudson drinks them like a champ. His favorite foods are chicken and cheese quesadillas, corn on the cob, black beans, ground turkey, blueberries, grapes, popsicles, and graham crackers. The kid will do anything for a graham cracker. He's still being breastfed for now but has no problem drinking whole milk too.

Clothes: He's mostly wearing 12-18 month clothing and pajamas.

Baby Gear Love: Hudson LOVES his new car that he got for his birthday. He walks over to it and climbs in...and then gets upset if you don't start pushing him around. He also loves blocks, books, and putting things into bags.

 photo RenAug13_18wm.jpgLikes: Playing with toys, riding in his car, being held my momma and daddy, dancing to music, tickle fights with daddy, chasing Wrigley, walking, and sharing food.

Dislikes: Holding still, diaper changes, getting dressed, and having his nose wiped. So basically mornings at our house are really fun.

Social: Hudson smiles at everyone he sees and is such a happy boy. He has developed some pretty serious separation anxiety when I get out of his sight, which just breaks my heart....but usually is fine after a few minutes. He loves watching other kids and shows no fear walking right up to kids twice his size.

Milestones: Walking! Hudson started walking shortly after turning 11 months old...and hasn't stopped! He gets better and better each day. He's also waiving "bye bye"....but his hand faces inward instead of out when he does it, which my mom said I did as a baby too. SO stinkin' cute! He started "dancing" this month when he hears music. It's more of a sway/bounce than an actual dance. But it's adorable.

We love our BIG one year old!

p.s.....don't forget to link up tomorrow for the Kid Tested, Mom Approved: family friendly food edition!
Today's special feature is the cutest little Southerner turned Northerner....Stephanie from Newlyweds North....seriously, how gorgeous is she!

Hey Ya'll!

I'm Stephanie and my little corner of the blogosphere is called Newlyweds:North.
I started Newlyweds:North just a few months ago to document the absolute craziest time of our lives: our big move from South Carolina to Maine (?!) just days after we walked down the aisle....

That's right ya'll, things have been quite an adventure around here!
I'd love to have you tag along as I document our first year of marriage and (perhaps more terrifying) our first real Winter up North. And just in case the whole moving to another planet thing bores you, I also love to chat about my TJ Maxx scores, decorating our home, my attempts to DIY without killing myself and feeding the men in my house.

Oh and P.S., my now Husband purchased our new home in Maine sight un-seen by either of us, I quit my job to move here and am adjusting to life away from the office, we honestly don't own coats and we miss some things Southern in a major way. But, we love hard, fight hard and laugh hard so I know we'll survive what's ahead (right??)....

    And the picture of Hudson with the baseball is so good! I mean, I love them all, but that one just pops with the red shoes and stitching on the ball.

  3. Love the pics of him with a baseball... a natural! ;) Happy Birthday Again big boy!

  4. Happy Birthday to your little boy!

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE Hudson's one year photos!! Happy one sweet boy!!! He's so big and cute! I can't believe I get to see him soon!

  6. What beautiful pictures! Mr. Hudson is too cute!! They really do grow so fast, I can't believe my kids will be 4 and 2 in a few short months! Crazy!! :)

  7. Those pictures are all adorable and I love reading about how Hudson is doing!! Happy Birthday Hudson!! xo

  9. Happy Birthday to Hudson!! He's adorable. Y'all have such great family photos! Too cute.

  10. Happy Birthday Hudson! He is so cute, it's been so much fun seeing him grow this year! I love that photo of you and your husband reading him the book, so sweet :) Also, Stephanie from Newlyweds North is actually my real life friend and she is just as sweet in person as she seems on her blog! I met her before she started blogging when we both lived in South Carolina...such a small world! xoxo

  11. What a beautiful son and family you have! I love following your life, the great advice you give, and the positivity that surrounds your story.

  12. I love it when they start to dance! We have nightly dance parties in our house! :-) Your family pictures are so beautiful!

  13. He is so precious! The pictures are gorgeous!:) Loving his little car...I can totally see Caleb having a ball in a little car like that when he gets a little older!

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Hudson!! Such a sweetie!

  15. Great photos! He looks so happy (and sounds like he's happily moving into toddler land). Callie hates all the things you mentioned to! Around that age (maybe a month earlier?) I started to teach Callie to wipe her own nose because she seriously hated it so much. Anyway now she's so good at it I don't have to do it and she thinks it's fun and wipes her nose for no reason and wipes her dolls/animals noses! Anyway might be worth a try! :)

  16. So cute! Love the photos. My baby girl is quite a dancer now too!

  17. Oh my gosh, could he be any cuter?!?! I love that he is in red shoes, very fitting. I am so glad that I found your blog, I cant wait to follow. Come check me out at

    I just started this blog after being away from my old one for about a year a half, so glad to be back!

  18. He couldn't be any cuter in his red shoes!!! So so so precious.

    Happy Birthday to all of you!!!!

  19. These pictures are amazing!!! Such a beautiful little family! :)

  20. One time flies! Hudson is a sweetheart! Your maternity pics are gorgeous and his 5 day old pics are fantastic! I love sleepy little babies! Enjoy this you know and I can assure you - it flies! Have a great week!

  21. Love the pics!

  22. WHAT?! I refuse to believe that your tiny baby that was just born yesterday is this old. NO! How does this happen?! Hope he had a wonderful birthday and you didn't cry too much. :)

  23. I just came upon your blog and I love it! My little guy is a month old today and I think I'll write a monthly post for him just like your one year :) Thanks for the inspiration! I love all your posts and reading the breastfeeding stories and your posts about what gear has worked great for you. Thanks!
