iPhone Rewind {December}

Sweet boy in his gingerbread man shirt...

Hudson (in his swaddling cloth) was a 17 pound 6 month old Baby Jesus in our church's Christmas pageant...

He much prefers his carseat this way...

Practicing yoga...

His first time wearing them!

The day before Hudson started on solids I made all of baby food. I made carrots, peas, green beans, butternut squash, yellow squash, apples and sweet potatoes. 

In his adorable hat from Aunt Ashley...

Tasting peas for the first time and loving them

His precious Baylor onesie from Pumpkin Butter Kids!
 tired of shopping at Target

He's had these 2 teeth since November but I finally got a picture of them.

Asleep in the car while we were looking at Christmas lights

In front of the poinsettias at church

Christmas cards all ready to be mailed out!

Both chewing on the blanket

Hudson lost his Sophie the giraffe when we were in Sugar Land so he had to use his back up for a few days. 

He started out on the blanket...not crawling but scooting and turning!

Playing the guitar with Daddy...melts my heart!

If anyone wants to relive the early can pick up Malibu Musk at Walgreens.

Practicing with the sippy cup on Christmas morning.

Santa was good to me Ugg house shoes and earrings!

Enjoying my Christmas present from John's mom...first book I read? uncharted terriTORI. ;)

Like father, like son...watching Swamp Loggers

Our Christmas present from my dad!

Papa Jim gave Hudson The Smurfs and he loved watching it.

One day when Papa Jim was here we went to Houston and Hudson enjoyed tortillas and puffs at Lupe Tortilla.

Licking his bowl clean!

One evening after Hudson went to bed this was our living room...


He has learned how to feed himself puffs. Although sometimes they get stuck and he can't find them. ;)

Hudson's 1st Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was so special celebrating Hudson's 1st Christmas. This post is full of a ton of pictures but I really wish I had more. I was not feeling great at all during Christmas and didn't take enough pictures. I'm kicking myself now but we still had a wonderful Christmas. We are so blessed.

We attended the Christmas Eve service. Hudson did so well...I was nervous. We sat on the front row and he did not take his eyes off of John as he led the church in Christmas carols. The puffs Lady and I kept feeding him helped also. :)

When we got home I wanted to get a few pictures of Hudson in front of our tree while he was still in his adorable nutcracker vest. I was pressing my luck because it was past his bedtime but he still managed to be adorable. He knew Santa was on his way.

And then a few in his precious Christmas jammies.

Christmas morning...SANTA CAME! Hudson was very excited about Christmas morning...he woke up at 4:59. He had been waking up in the 5:00 hour for a few mornings. His poor little schedule had been so off. So we were finished opening presents well before 7:00.

John and I got him the Pottery Barn Kids Anywhere Chair and a couple little toys. His stocking was full of the essentials...Puffs, butt paste and a new sippy cup.

Lady got John this hilarious bird puppet to use playing with Hudson. He thought John was so weird. (excuse how awful I look...remember he woke up at 4:59.)

These are a pair of blue and black plaid Tiny Toms. We were so excited for Hudson to get them!

After opening presents John was able to squeeze in a nap before he had to be at church. Hudson and I didn't go because there wasn't going to be any childcare and with the way he had been (not feeling great, fussy and waking up before 5am) I didn't want to go to church only to stand outside the whole time because he wasn't happy. My mom left that morning and then later that day John's mom and Fred came.

John's family tradition is to open these Christmas popper things and wear the crowns during dinner. It is a very fun tradition and Hudson got to take part this year.

Hudson loved his music table from Susu (John's mom).

Getting ready to open his stocking from Susu.

After Susan and Fred left we had a day with just the 3 of us before my dad came on Wednesday.

Hudson loved his horse from Papa Jim!

Pretty sure Papa Jim fed Hudson every meal. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
