Hudson 3 years 6 months

*Apparently I'm on an every 3 month get a cough gig.  Once again, Dr. said all seemed fine but did put me on antibiotics since I've been battling for a month.  I was able to get updated stats....40 pounds and 3' 3'' tall.

*I have an imaginary friend I sometimes play with.  His name is Gope (sounds like rope).  He is a 100 year old, nice male dragon with purple skin, pink hair, orange eyes and a red tongue.  His favorite foods are melons and grapes.  He likes car rides, playing ball and hide and seek.

*I still love to play ball; outside, on the stairs, in the bath, in my ball pit, at the park, anywhere, really!

*My love affair with cars is still going strong.

*I enjoy playing I-Spy and am starting to get better at taking turns when playing board games as well. 

*I still struggle with sleep but mom and dad have some tricks they think they will get by me.  Time will tell.  I surprised them last night and did great.

*I get complimented on my speech a lot.  Although my articulation isn't always clear, I have a lot to say and almost always talk in complete sentences. 

*I got some new glasses which I wear a lot better and don't fiddle with nearly as much.

*I love water; Pool, Bath, Great Wolf Lodge, Hotel's, Ocean, Sink, Glasses, The Hose.  I really want to water the grass again.

Hudson 3 years 3 months

I remain a delight and a terror wrapped up in one amazing bundle of boy!


**I had that nasty cough not too long ago and I went to the doctor.  I was fine, but it did give us a chance to have updated stats.  I am 39 pounds and I am 38.5 inches tall. 

**Preschool: I started a 3's preschool this year, in Sherwood.  It was not a good experience.  Most of the kids were older than me and the teacher was expecting me to sit at the carpet for 30 minute stretches.  She emailed my mom about all the things I wasn't doing right and even sent pictures of me crying to meme and papa.  After 3 days, mom and dad decided it wasn't a good fit and I started going to WonderKids; a preschool based out of The Little Gym.  I love Teacher Ben and Teacher Sean.  I get to work at centers where I do arts and crafts, build with blocks and play with cars.  Then I get circle time with a song and movement.  Then we do a group activity followed by a snack.  Then I get 45 minutes of gym class followed by another round of centers and we end with story time. 

**My speech is coming along nicely.  I am a lot more consistent with my initial 's' sound and develop more sounds all the time.  If I talk slowly people can understand quite a bit.  If I get excited, I am still hard to understand at times. 

I have learned some new words--which does pose a problem now that I talk more clear.  Mom and dad have a hard time not laughing when I uses them.  Here's an example of one conversation.

(Family eating dinner....Huddy drops watermelon slice)
H: Oh Fuck. Daddy pick up my watermelon please
D: Hudson, that's an adult word
H: Please?!  (looking puzzled)

**I have met a babysitter in town.  Amber is a lot of fun and I have enjoyed two evenings with her already while mom and dad go to Blazer Games.

**I am potty trained and love wearing my 'unders'.  Of course, I have a few accidents here and there and mom isn't quite brave enough to attempt overnighters yet, but overall, I'm a big boy!  Thank you Tammy for all the help with this!!

**I love camping, cars, playing outdoors, cars, the pumpkin patch, cars, splashing in puddles, cars, going for walks, cars, swim lessons, cars, visits with meme and papa, did I mention I like cars??
