Hudson Week 10

* I am consistently giving mom at least one 5-6 hour stretch at night between bottles. She is very grateful since she goes back to work on Monday.
* Since she goes back on Monday, I had a chance to practice spending some time with both Sarah and Grandma who will be taking turns watching me.
* Tim Hudson (a pitcher for the Giants and a long time pitcher for the Braves) won a World Series ring.  Mom and dad were hoping the Royals would win but are excited that the inspiration for my name won the world series!
* I had my 2 month check up this week...I have recovered from my shots (those aren't fun) and the doctor said I'm perfect!
     Height 23.5 inches
     Weight  12.8 pounds

Hudson Week 9

This was a big week for me!

* I officially hit two months old on Tuesday.
* I transitioned into sleeping in my own room.
* I had another fun visit with Natalie and Nora as we walked around the Wildlife Refuge.
* My wardrobe got all switch up as I have grown into my 3 month clothes.
* I am getting the hang of my new bedtime routine: PJ's, Bottle, Books and Rocking with momma.  I have enjoyed The Little Engine That Could, Goodnight Gorilla, Oh Baby, Go Baby! and Green Eggs and Ham.

Mom and dad would like me to get used to my crib, for some reason I can't.  After 20 minutes, at most, I wake and cry!  Any suggestions from other mommy friends?  We thought I just didn't like to lay on my back, because I didn't enjoy naps on the blanket or the couch, but this week I have taken 3 naps of at least 1.5 hours, on my back, in the middle of mom and dad's bed. 

Any Suggestions?

Hudson Week 8

I am holding my head really well (although when I sleep I still tilt it to left, just like I did when I was in the womb)
I am smiling...a lot
Mom and dad think I am going to grow again; I am eating and sleeping quite a bit
For the last two nights, I have slept over 6 hours at a time; making mommy and daddy really really happy!
This past weekend, I got a chance to hang out with my friend Lucas and go to the pumpkin patch (pictures in previous post....take a look)

Mom took the picture right as my round butt was taking over...and I decided to be fussy so she couldn't take any others.  But...I am getting bigger and bigger!

Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, Matt and I spend some time with some college friends of ours at the pumpkin patch.

Pumpkin patches are exhausting

Good friends making sure the 'wives and kids' get out the corn maze

The Gang

Buddies for life

Just like their daddy's

Hudson Week 7

I have been around now for 49 whole days!
This week was a bit rough at times; I had to finish my battle with constipation, my first cold and numerous bouts with the hiccups.
The last couple of nights I have slept 5-6 hours stretches between bottles; making mommy really happy!
With the beautiful fall Oregon weather, I have spent a lot of time outside.  Mom and dad take me for walks every day and I even got some time outside while momma worked in the garden.

I am a very smiley baby now (although there are only a few pictures to prove it)
Today, I get to take my first trip to the zoo with momma's friend Natalie and baby Nora!

Wearing my elephants in honor of my first trip to the zoo

So comfy

Tummy Time
My legs are so strong, I tend to kick myself over!
(then mom leaves me here long enough to take a picture)

Hudson Week 6

I was fussy this week as I battled some constipation =/  Everything is slowly working again, but mom has some stuff from the doctor it things get bad again.
I weighed in at 11.5 pounds at the doctor
My 0-3 months clothes are starting to fit a bit snug in places
I LOVE walks with mom and dad in the stroller or the front pack
I am starting to smile a lot, not always on cue, but I'm close
I am slowly getting used to my crib and even took a 30 minute nap in it today!

So Chill

Getting so close to sitting up on my own

Yeah for nap time in the crib!
