This lil penguin was 10 months old on Sunday! I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by! Hudson is 29 3/4” and 19lbs 12oz (apparently his latest growth spurt sucked up some of his weight... 😳) it’s certainly not for lack of eating! Just ask his grandparents 🤣
Hudson LOVES bananas for breakfast, spaghetti, and whatever food mom is eating (even if he has the exact same thing on his own plate...) He’s finally taken to crawling - instead of army crawling everywhere - can pull himself up on pretty much everything! And loves practicing to walk with him from mom or dad! He loves music of any kind, but the Pink Fong top 50 playlist really gets him moving, and man does he love to dance!
Daddy just came home for Christmas and we couldn’t be more excited to be able to celebrate all together Hudson’s first CHRISTMAS! ☃️🎅🏻🎄🎁
Well he slept basically the whole time I saw him, but how adorable is this little man!? I’ll get my snuggles in next time!
Hudson and Lincoln’s first visit to Santa! How cute are these two! Thankfully Hudson wasn’t the least bit nervous around Santa (though I’m hoping he gets a healthy fear of strangers at some point...). I snapped these on my phone while we were there - thank goodness! Since my computer won’t recognize the USB they gave us 😫 - and gotta say, my little man is some sweet ❤️
I think the coffee teether is a big hit!
#pinterestfail ? I mean not completely... but I’ve definitely had other things be more successful! Haha
While Hudson’s Grandpa and Nana were down on the weekend, Nana and I took advantage of a nap to make some #sensorybottles! I don’t think they turned out quite the way we planned but thankfully Hudson doesn’t seem to mind!
I think we found a new Christmas tradition! The #livenativity last night was wonderful! It was so interactive and awesome and Hudson loved the music! *Thanks to Melissa for sharing the photos of the face in the hole and Hudson and I! And also for letting us tag along!
To say he loves bathtime doesn’t really cover it! 💦💦
We had fun at play group today! He even played with a toy this time instead of just staring around in silence and taking it all in! He was still very observant but also less timid about it! (Bonus is that mama is making some friends too!)
Hm what’s this? I’ll try eating it! Ah! It’s cold! I don’t think I like this...
Jon and I headed up to the city to meet baby Lincoln, and let me tell you, he’s even more adorable in person (as hard as that is to believe)! Hudson was fascinated by him too! But we had to keep a close eye, we’re still working on “gentle” with him, and let’s just say it needs work... Welcome to the world little Lincoln! You’re much loved by so many people and so blessed to have @amandamayclarke and @clarkemortgagegroup for parents! Congratulations guys! 💙
Liam from @appleheadstudio did our Christmas card photos for us and they are SO ADORABLE! I’m hiding a bunch of them since they’re for the Christmas cards, but loved this one too much not to share it sooner! Also, I can’t wait to get this one printed and up on a wall ASAP! (Fun story: we picked a tree farm in Mount Uniacke, since Liam’s in Halifax and we’re in the valley. Somehow, I picked the smallest tree farm with the tiniest trees! 🤦🏼♀️ Liam worked some magic though and you’d never know, the photos really have that Christmas magic ✨)
I thought he was being strangely quiet while I did the dishes yesterday and I turned around to this. Poor bub! (I popped him out of the chair right after taking this!)
Hudson’s first ❄️❄️❄️
We went to go visit Mummi and Pappa the other day, and Mummi had found one of daddy’s old sweaters his Aunt from Finland had knit him! Perfect timing as it fit Hudson like a glove!
This was the closest I could get to being able to read the “9 months” sticker. The second I put it on his onesie, he peeled it off and decided it was a snack 🤦🏼♀️ He’s officially 9 months old today! He’s 29” and about 20lbs, and getting bigger all the time! I’m gonna be a tank by the time this kid is all grown up! He eats everything like a champ, and prefers to do it himself now. He’s pulling himself up to standing on everything (and consequently falling down a lot...) and though he still refuses to actually crawl, he gets around pretty fast doing his army crawl! He’s got 1 tooth and we think the other one may be coming... our happy little man is as cheerful as ever (unless he misses a nap...) and is getting better at sleeping longer stretches and settling himself back down!
