7 Months

Hudson, you are seven months old today, and I feel like this past month went by quicker than most.  You have almost been here with us longer than you were in my belly, that is so hard to imagine.  You are getting too big too fast, mommy needs you do start taking your time. 

I would say you are around 18 lbs now.  I am not sure about your length.

You are still not a huge fan of baby food.  We are doing really well if we can get you to eat a whole jar.  You do not like fruit much at all, which is so weird to me, but you will eat veggies really well.  You get a jar of oatmeal for breakfast, and a fruit and veggie for dinner, well what you will eat of them.  You are still drinking 4 oz of formula every 3-4 hours, except at night.  Sometimes you are every two hours at night.  As far as table food we have tried crackers, watermelon, and strawberries, you seemed to like all of them.  I am not real crazy about giving you table food, because I am terrified of you choking.

Your sleeping in still pretty random.  The other night you slept from 7:30-12:30 in your crib, last night you were up every two hours.  You actually go down really well in your bed, and would probably sleep there all night, but mommy thinks your monitor looks like the screen from The Poltergeist.  It picks up on every little sound, and I am certain there is a little Gremlin that lives in your room.  Needless to say whether you are in your bed or ours I rarely get sleep. 

Mommy left you for the weekend for the first time this month, and it was extremely hard.  I held it together until I got in the car, and completely fell apart.  I know you were in good hands with your daddy, and I needed the time away with my girlfriends.  I am not ready to do that again for a long time.  Daddy said you slept like an angel while I was gone, and it was my fault you are up all night.  I am fairly certain you were up, daddy just didn't hear you.

You had your first Easter, and the Easter Bunny was very good to you.

Daddy came home with a new swing for you a few weeks ago, and you love it!  We spend most of our afternoons in the back yard swinging, playing, or going on walks.

You are still just sitting up, and not interested in moving around.  You will lean forward and act like you are going to crawl, but end up just getting stuck, and screaming.  You love to stand up, and want us to hold you up all the time.  I peeked in on your the other day playing in your bed.  Last month I couldn't even see your head when you were sitting up in your bed.

You have graduated from the baby bath tub to your duck tub.  We got it out for you the other night, and daddy blew up up.  Once you were in it we realized you are not going to be using it for long. 

You are such a busy little boy.  You used to be so content just being held or riding around in your stroller.  Now if you are being held you are reaching and trying to grab anything in sight.  We went to target to help Brittany register yesterday, and you did not want to sit in the cart, but when  I picked you up you wanted me to hold you, and you push the cart. 

You have started this new thing where you just like to scream for no reason.  I had you in your high chair while I was making dinner last night, and you were clinching your fist and screaming your head off.  It is really special, and does not make mom crazy at all.

You are definitely Luke Graves child.  You are so stubborn and only do what you want to do, when you want to do it, and have such a temper.  Lord help us all.

You and Maddie are so cute together, but you are starting to "fight" more.  If one of you has something, the other one wants it. 

You got this little dog for Christmas and have not paid much attention to it until now. You are so funny when I turn it on your kick and laugh

Your vocabulary consists of ma ma, da da, and na na.  You said da da first, and I told everyone you didn't know what you are saying, but now that you say ma ma I know you are sure of what you are saying :)

You have been a little sickling this past month.  We have made several trips to the Dr.  We went for a high temp, and they had to make sure you did not have a uti, so that had to do a cath, you screamed, and it hurt my heart so much.  It ended up being a viral infection, and you had a stomach virus last week. 

Hudson, you are the light of our lives and continue to amaze us everyday.  We are planning a trip to the beach this summer, and we cannot wait to start this tradition.  You are such a sweet little boy, you can give me that gummy grin, and it makes my day.  We love you so much, and cannot wait to see what is in store this next month.
