Happy 3 months

You are 3 months old now!  Wow! 
You weigh approximately 13 lbs (I had to get on the scales with you, so just an estimate).  I'm not sure how long you are.
You  still fit into 0-3 month clothes.  You have cute chubby cheeks that I still can't kiss enough.
You eat a lot!  You are still eating 7 times/day but sometimes you need an extra feeding or two.  You are still being solely breastfed, which I feel really good about.   Although, I'm having supply issues :(
You are going to have 1 cousin born in June and 1 born in July - we are so excited for you to have some family to play with.  We don't know the sex of either, yet.  Hopefully there will be at least 1 boy.  
You wear size 1 diapers. 
You are continuing to stay awake longer after feedings.  We can't believe how alert you have become.  You are the happiest and most alert in the mornings.  You really like your bouncer and the koala bear, you bat at it a lot and smile and laugh - it's really sweet.  You also like Sophie the giraffe that Nana bought you and the plastic hole ball Uncle Clint and Aunt Anne bought you. 
Your smile melts our hearts - you have become quite smiley - although I can't seem to get too many pictures of you smiling.  You have really started giggling -melts my heart.  Last week I was feeding you and had to keep stopping because you kept laughing (best mom moment so far).  I don't know what was so funny, but I loved it!  
You're so sweet and cuddly, you really like being held.
You have flipped from your stomach to your back one time so far- I'm really amazed at the progress you are making -no longer a newborn.  
Your eyes still look like a deep blue color.
Your hair is starting to lighten and is now a dark blonde/light brown - I'm guessing you will end up a little blondie like your mommy and daddy (daddy as a kid).
You had your first accident (weird freak accident) - one of mommy's hairs got wrapped around your middle toe and cut off circulation and your toe swelled up 3x bigger than normal and the hair sliced some skin off the back of your toe and was bleeding (I'm not gonna lie, Daddy and I thought you might lose your toe so I didn't take any pictures, I was sick over the whole thing).  We had to unwrap it and it turned bright red.  I called the doctor and he said to watch it closely and as long as it stays red that is a good thing, but if it turns pale to go to the ER right away.  I watched your foot like a hawk.  The doctor checked it 2 days later and said it looked okay.
You have discovered the tv and are transfixed, but we don't let you watch it, we turn you away.  No tv at this point for you, sorry little man.
You still love to stand up and kick like crazy.  We've tried putting you in your bigger bouncer, but you're still a little too small - your feet don't touch the ground and you just kind of lump over. 
You are still sleeping 8+ hours per night (still a major praise!).   Most of the time you go to sleep pretty easily.  You are waking up happy, it's so sweet seeing you on the monitor wake up cooing and then come in and get you and you smile at us.  Baby Wise has been amazing!   I've been a little bit crazy about it, but it works!
You are our sweet, precious gift from God!   We are so...thankful for you.  We love you so much!
Happy 3 months

My cousin's wife Elizabeth took some amazing pictures for us this past weekend.  Here are just a few.  I'll show the rest later.  She is so talented and sweet!  
Love this little collage of 3 month shirts
So special!  We know Hudson is a precious gift from God
So...cute!  Love the colors in this picture
Love the little guy's hands and smile
I love that she used the blanket my mom made - it's so special to me
Thanks Elizabeth!  Can't wait to show off the rest of the pictures!
