Grandparent's Weekend

My parent's came down for the weekend and we had a really great time.  They got to watch Hudson's soccer practice and really enjoyed seeing him run around.  We had amazing weather on Saturday, but some rain on Sunday.  They came on the perfect weekend, Spring is in full bloom here - the cherry trees, azaleas, dogwoods, lilac bushes, apple trees, bright green grass, etc, it's just gorgeous right now.  Hudson spent the night with them in the hotel and did some swimming with my dad.  He loved spending quality time with them.  Beckett loved all the extra special attention, too.

Such a fun time - so sad they're gone already.  Time flew by too fast.

Happy 9 months!

Happy 9 months!

Sadly, you were back to being sick a lot this past month.  You had the stomach flu for 10 days, got a double ear infection, and popped your 1st tooth all at the same time.  Poor thing, you just can't seem to catch a break.  You lost 1.5#.  You also slept really poorly this past month (can't say I blame you since you felt so bad).  Also, you had another ear infection at today's well baby visit- one more infection and you have to have tubes.

Thankfully the weather has been a lot warmer so we have been outside a lot - from walks to picnics, to going to the park, to playing outback.  You seem to really enjoy walks.  You love looking at everything and if we're not home within 20 minutes, you fall asleep.

You weigh 18 lbs 7 oz =18% --you keep getting skinnier and skinnier.
Your length is 28" = 40%  --they must have messed up your height the last time because you were 28" then and in the 90%, today you were still 28" and only in the 40%, I had the nurse re-check, so they were probably wrong the last time, odds are you grew and they measured wrong.

You are army crawling and kind of pulling yourself up on everything.
You went to the church nursery for the first time this past month and did great, they said you even took a nap.  You, Hudson, and me traveled to Indiana for 4 nights Hudson's Spring Break.  You are a great traveler.  We had a fun time, but that was part of the time when you were sick.  

You sleep about 11 hours at night and take 2 naps, sometimes they last 20 minutes and sometimes we have to wake you up.  As long as you're healthy, you sleep through the night.   You like sleeping on your stomach up in the corner of the crib.

You still wear a size 3 diaper and 9-12 month clothes.  You are not a fan of diaper changes.   You do not want to hold still.  We've added squash, sweet potatoes, garden veggies,
You are saying, "yeah, yeah, yeah" and occasionally "ma ma ma", in addition to "da da da" and "blah blah blah"

We have a bubble gun and you love it!  You especially love watching your brother use it and laugh so hard.  We've also discovered you love bigger balls and love having them rolled at you, you laugh so hard.

I think you are a Mommy's Boy!  I love it- Hudson is a total Daddy's Boy.
You are our sweet, precious joy baby!  We love you!

Spring Break

For Hudson's Spring Break, we traveled to Indiana for 4 days.
 We had a really good time overall, but poor Beckett was sick.  I had to take him to the UTC and they diagnosed him with a double ear infection and the stomach flu.  Poor thing lost 1.5 pounds.  He was really sick for just under 2 weeks.  He's such a little toughie.

 We spent 1 night at Brian's parent's house and spent the remaining nights at my parent's house.
It's been really hard for us to tell when he has an ear infection because he always holds his ears when he's eating.
Hudson loved helping bake cupcakes with Gigi.

Hudson really wanted a silly picture
It was so nice to get away and have some fun with the grandparents.  Brian stayed home and worked and worked on some house projects.  We really missed him.
