3 Months!

Hudson, you are 3 MONTHS OLD today!! I can't begin to believe that. You are growing and changing by leaps and bounds and I am so glad I get to be with you every day to see it all for myself!

  • According to our home scale, you weigh about 13 1/2 pounds. (We don't go back to the doctor until your 4 month checkup.)
  • You have moved up to size 2 diapers, although the 1s still fit (barely). 2s are just more comfortable and we ran out of 1s and didn't want to go buy another pack and you end up growing out of them before we were able to use them all.
  • You are wearing some 0-3 months clothes, but are fitting better into 3-6 months. Things just aren't long enough.
  • You are eating 4-5 oz every 3 hours....every now and then you'll eat even more than that!
  • We are not on a consistent sleeping/feeding schedule yet, but we're getting closer.
  • You usually go to sleep around 10:30-11 and sleep until about 5:30 or 6. After that feeding you usually go down for about 2-3 more hours. We're hoping you start going to bed earlier soon. 11 is a little late! :)
  • You still have nights here and there when you get up around 2 or so. When you are sleeping through the night consistently, we'll begin the transition to your room. :(
  • You usually take either one good nap (2-3 hrs) or a few catnaps (20-30 min. each) every day.
  • You can hold your head up totally independently now! You have great control of your head and neck.
  • You love sitting in your Bumbo seat and it seems to be helping you learn how to sit up on your own. Sometimes you can sit up without support for a few seconds. (of course I'm right there with you!)
  • You want to sit up and be a big boy so bad. When I lay you in your lounger, you try so hard to sit up.
  • You are great at standing with help and love to put your weight on your legs and feet. You are very strong.
  • You love watching TV, the computer (Veggie Tales anyone?), and anything with light.
  • You've started seeing yourself in the mirror and crack up! It's so cute.
  • Your hands are your favorite accessory at the moment. They are hardly ever out of your mouth. If they are, your paci is usually in there. I'm just waiting for that first tooth!
  • For reasons explained above, you're a drool monster.
  • You love smiling, smiling's your favorite. (Elf anyone?) I love how your eyes smile when you smile.
  • You also love to talk, blow bubbles, and make noises with all of that slobber in your mouth! HA!
  • You have started laughing and it is the cutest. thing. ever. There is no more precious sound than your laugh.
  • You are a momma's boy, but boy do you love your daddy!?!? You light up when he comes home and have the best time with him!
  • You love tummy time and will spend forever on your tummy. You can lift your head up SO good and prop up on your arms.
  • Your eyes are darkening, and are now a greenish brownish color.
  • You're getting more hair (slowly) and it seems to be growing faster on the sides and the back. There may be a mullet in your future. HA!
  • You still love bath time and love splashing and kicking in the water.
  • Your pouty face is the saddest thing in the world and it breaks my heart.
  • You like to kick up your legs and check out your feet, especially in the car seat.
  • You used to sleep the whole time you were in the car seat, but now you are awake almost the entire time. If you're really tired, you'll fall asleep but most of the time you're wide awake and happy, just looking at everything around you.
  • You've been to Cheddar's and Cracker Barrel and you frequent Target and Publix with mommy.
  • You are a doll and people come up to see you all the time to "ooo" and "aahhh" over you.
  • We're hoping to take you on your first beach trip in the next month or two. You have a couple of bathing suits you need to test out. ;)
We are loving how interactive you're getting with us and can't wait to see how you continue to grow and change before our eyes. We love you so much we can't even put it into words. You are THE best thing to come into our lives and we hope you always know how loved you are. We will tell you every chance we get, so just get ready for us to get on your nerves. We are going to be "those" parents...the ones who tell you they love you all the time, hug and kiss you every chance we get, and embarrass you when we drop you off for school. Just go ahead and get used to the idea. :-)

I took a lot more pictures today and will post them tomorrow sometime after I have time to edit them a little bit in Lightroom. ;-)
Here's one of Hudson wearing one of his Daddy's old shirts. (I told you he loves kicking those legs up in the air!)
I'm promise he's not always quite this happy! He had just gotten up from a great nap. ;)
