2 Months

Hudson, you are TWO months old today, and BOY are you growing!?!?! You have changed so much over the last month and are growing like a weed. You are becoming much more fun and social and I'm loving seeing a little personality come out. You love to smile, laugh, and coo. You get so excited when you see mommy and daddy. Your face lights up and it melts our hearts! I could watch you all day long! You are the sweetest baby and I am convinced you are going to be a child genius! ;-)

  • According to our home scale, you weigh about 12 1/2 pounds! You're a big boy, but you're not really're getting long. I'm anxious to see your exact weight and length tomorrow at your checkup!
  • You are wearing size 1 diapers.
  • You are in 0-3 months clothes, but a lot of them are becoming too tight and too short. You can wear 3 months pretty comfortably, although a couple of 3-6 months outfits are very snug. I just put you in whatever you can fit into right now.
  • You eat about 4 oz every 3 hours.
  • So far we haven't found any allergies. Hopefully it will stay that way! Mommy drinks milk, eats peanut butter, and other common allergy foods and you've yet to have a problem with them.
  • Your eyes are getting a little darker, but they're still bluish gray. They're beautiful!
  • You have started sleeping in longer stretches and mommy and daddy love this! You're usually down around 10, sometimes 11, (we've got to work on falling asleep earlier!) and will sleep until around 4 or 5. After you eat, you'll usually go back down for a couple more hours.
  • You sleep in your pack 'n play in our room, but we'll try moving you to your room once you're sleeping through the night consistently...especially since your room is on the opposite end of this large house. (I think mommy might have a hard time with this though!)
  • You usually take either one good nap (2-3 hours) or two or three small naps (30 minutes) throughout the day. Y0u're not a real big napper.
  • You are a very happy, content baby. You only fuss if you're hungry, gassy, or need your paci to soothe yourself.
  • You laugh and smile socially now, but still do it in your sleep too. It's so cute! I'll just sit in front of you making you smile and coo for ever sometimes. I say "Hello Hudson" and "I love you" a lot, and it's almost like you're trying to mimic what I say. I LOVE the sounds of your "talking".
  • I think you're going to be a mama's boy (or already are) and that's just fine with me!
  • I have this feeling you're going to be crawling and walking early. You are constantly pushing up with your legs, and when we stand you up, your legs are really strong.
  • When we put you on your belly to sleep (supervised), you move around like crazy!
  • You can hold your head up like a pro! It hardly wobbles at all anymore. You're almost ready for your Bumbo seat!
  • I'm also afraid you'll be getting teeth sooner than later. You have been chewing on your hand a lot lately, wanting your paci more, and I've been noticing a lot of drooling going on! They say it can start as early as 3 months....uh oh!
  • Your eyes are very expressive. They give away how you're feeling, especially your eyebrows.
  • You have started grabbing everything!
  • You love being rocked to sleep, and your favorite place to fall asleep is on someone's chest.
  • You do not like sleeping on your back at all, especially on a flat surface. If you do, it has to be somewhat inclined, like in your Boppy Lounger...but then that only lasts for about 30 minutes. Your grunting has decreased a lot!
  • Bath time and diaper changes are no big deal to you anymore. Most of the time you're smiling away during a dirty diaper change. HA!
  • You love tummy time, but haven't yet started playing with the toys on your activity mat.
  • You look a lot like mommy did in her baby pictures. There are a lot of times you look a lot like your daddy though.
  • You're becoming a pro at traveling. You go to Gadsden a good bit, and go on errands with mommy and daddy quite frequently. You do great! You love riding in the car.
  • You are one loved little boy. I hope one day you'll understand just how much we love you. We think you hung the moon! You're also loved by aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, cousins, etc. Everyone is so crazy about you!

    Now stop growing up so fast!! :-) Mommy and daddy would do anything for you, little man. You are our world!!



  1. I do not have exact numbers, but, I am pretty sure he is the most handsome baby boy on the planet! We love hearing the tall tales he tells when he is chatting away. Next time we come for a visit, we hope to hear more of his sweet stories. We are so blessed to have Hudson as our GRAND grandson and equally blessed to see what our Lord has in store for his life. His mom and dad continue to be a huge blessing in our life.
    love, Mama & Pop Puckett
