1 Month!

Hudson you are ONE MONTH OLD today!! Where have the last 30 days gone?!?! It seems like we were just meeting you for the first time in the hospital and here you are...a whole month old! I feel like I'm not supposed to call you a newborn anymore, and that makes me sad. You have changed so much since you were born. You keep getting more and more handsome! ;)
By our home scale, you weigh 9.4 lbs!
You're in 0-3 months clothes, but some things are getting tight, especially length-wise.
You are barely hanging on to size newborn diapers. Ones are right around the've worn them a couple of times and they fit pretty well.
You love to eat, and usually eat around 4 ounces at a feeding, every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
You were still 21 inches long at your last doctor appointment, but I have a feeling you've grown since then. You're definitely starting to fill out.
You have long fingers and toes, and big feet!!
You still have dark blue/slate gray eyes but it seems that your hair has gotten slightly darker.
You love being cuddled, especially on our chests. It's your favorite place to be, especially to fall asleep.
You like to sleep in the napper on your pack n' play, but you also enjoy napping (supervised) on your lounger.
You love to sleep with your arms up by your head.
You're sometimes a noisy sleeper. You grunt and stretch a lot. Sometimes you sound like a pterodactyl!! I would say it's a little annoying, but that would be ugly of me, wouldn't it!?! HA!
Your daddy and I think you'll be an early crawler/walker. You are constantly trying to push up on your legs to get somewhere. Your legs are always moving and kicking.
You can get pretty gassy (sorry, son!), but Mylicon makes you feel so much better!
You are also holding your head up very well and I'm pretty sure it won't be too long before you are holding it up like a pro!
Right now you're sleeping in about 2 1/2 to 3 hour stretches. If you'd like to lengthen those, that'd be great! ;)
You nap on and off throughout the day, but you are also very alert and observant.
You're able to see mommy and daddy much better now and stare at us a lot. You also like to look at the ceiling fan.
You've done very well on our outings so far and usually stay asleep the whole time.
You're not too sure about your swing. Sometimes you like it, sometimes you're ready to get out after about 10 minutes.
You LOVE your newborn lounger, though.
You hate being restricted, therefore, you are not swaddled. You love to have your feet and arms free.
You make some pretty funny faces.
I love when you smile and laugh, even though it's still involuntary at this point.
You love car rides and always fall right to sleep as soon as we leave the house...if not before!
You are a happy baby...unless you're hungry, tired, or naked (sometimes).
You hated sponge baths, but now that you can take a real bath, you like them more and more every time you get one.
You're not a fan of lotion time or diaper changes, and you don't appreciate being exposed. (I think you're modest like your mama!)

Your daddy and I love you more than words can say and we are so glad God blessed us with you. We would move mountains for you! It's hard to remember life without you. We can't wait to see how you change and grow over the next several months and years. We are SO proud to be your parents!!!

(Here are a few more pictures from our photoshoot today...he was not interested in it AT ALL!)

Y'all have a great weekend!!!
