Hudson :: 5 Months Old

My Sweet Hudson,

How in the world are you 5 months old? 5 MONTHS! It's so crazy to me that I have a baby who is almost 1/2 a year old! However old you are, your daddy and I fall more in love with you every single day. You are SO easy right now. You traveled for 4 days this past weekend and you were an angel baby. You stayed up late every night, got very few naps and still did so well. I love this age because you are so fun and have such a sweet personality but you aren't quite mobile yet. Although we think crawling might be just around the corner for you!

You are rolling all over the place! We will put you down in one spot and you can be several feet away in seconds. You also are starting to pull your knees under you when you are on your tummy. You kick and move your arms and legs so fast like you are swimming. You are just so ready to take off!

You still have not tried any food yet. Your pediatrician told us to wait until 6 months and you seem to be doing great still just nursing.

You are also sitting up! Tuesday you sat for 30 seconds before falling for almost 2 minutes! I got about a minute and a half on video. You prefer to be in an upright sitting or standing position. We have been working on sitting so much the past couple of weeks!

You still love Sophie and your new talking dancing puppy. You love your Baby Einstein jumperoo and a few colorful toys. Your mobile is still a favorite but we don't leave it on your crib anymore. We just put it up when we want you to play.

You are a full out finger sucker. You will suck on your right pointer and middle fingers and it's the sweetest thing ever. You will still take a paci but very rarely. You drool and chew on things like crazy. You constantly have your hands in your mouth but you don't have any teeth yet.

This week you have been napping SO well! Tuesday you took a 2 hour morning nap, a 2 hour afternoon nap and about a 30-45 minute catnap. It's been so nice to have you napping so well this week since I wasn't feeling good at the beginning of the week.

Speaking of sleep...we get a lot! You go to bed between 7:00-7:30 and don't make a peep until 7:00-7:30 the next morning. Except for last night...around 11:30 you woke up crying which you haven't done in 2 months. We went in to check on you and changed your diaper. You were so squirmy so we checked your temperature (normal) so I just nursed you and you went back to sleep. I secretly enjoyed it and it reminded me of your earlier days. Not that I'm wanting you to go back. :) When you do wake up in the mornings you just talk in your crib until we come get you. I love it. The time change on Sunday did not mess up your sleep at all. I was worried you would wake up earlier but you didn't!

You had your first REAL belly laugh on Monday night (11-7-11) but it was while I was giving you a bath and didn't have the video camera with me. You've been giving us little chuckles for about a month now but this was your first full out belly laugh. You are so animated! You make the best faces. You are definitely your father's son.

You are grabbing at everything! You really love noses and mommy's hair. But you will grab at toys on your jumperoo and on your car seat.

Sadly, we put away your swing this month. You just did not care about it anymore. You would much rather be playing on the floor or in your jumperoo.

Sweet make our lives so much sweeter. You are joyful and we love every second with you.

  3. Its so fun to read about what he's up to these days! Adelyn is usually doing about the same thing...or about to! :) When you said he's grabbing at everything, that is Adelyn too! She loves my hair and our noses! It's so funny, if she could get it to her mouth, she would! ;)

    Such a sweet boy!
