Happy three month birthday to my littlest dude. Words cannot express how much we love this kid! I guess it’s time to fill y’all in on how he’s been doing lately.
Likes: Hudson is honestly the happiest baby I’ve ever seen. There isn’t much that he doesn’t like to see or do. What he loves more than anything in the world, though, is talking to people. He absolutely lights up when you strike up a conversation with him. Other likes include watching his big brother, maintaining a death-grip on your hand, taking baths, staring at random items like sconces and fans, and sticking out his tongue.
Dislikes: He still really only dislikes being tired or hungry, and even then he usually keeps his cool. He is definitely our mellow child at this point, and it’s really cool to see that side of his personality develop more and more every day. He just seems to go with the flow. We don’t call him “Smiley” for nothing, y’all.
Sleeping: He’s still sleeping like a champ in the Rock N Play, which makes me so incredibly nervous to have to ditch it in the coming months. Can they just make a toddler sized version, please? Right now he usually sleeps between 4-7 hours at a time. The most typical wake up times for him are around 3 am and then again at 7am. It’s not a bad little schedule he’s created for himself.
Eating: Yesterday I had to go into the office for a full day of work, which meant he had to take multiple bottles for the first time. I’m happy to report that he drank two full bottles without fussing, which is a huge improvement for him. The next step is to get him to take a bottle during the evening. He’s not a huge fan of that, but I assume it’s a comfort thing. Cross your fingers for us!
Playing: Hudson hasn’t changed much in this department. He still likes to kick his chubby little legs, laugh at Maddux, and watch the fan spin around. He’s still working hard on being more mobile and recently did his first mini sit up. Being a baby is rough. He just wants to stand up and run around, you guys.
Firsts: This month included one of my all-time favorite baby firsts: the big chuckle. He had been giggling here and there for a while, but we finally got a big belly laugh from him. It was freaking adorable. Apparently, he is super ticklish under his little chin. I can’t even handle it. He also sat up for the first time in his Bumbo. Also adorable. I sense a theme here.
This weekend will be another first for Hudson: his first vacation! I’m so excited, y’all. Is there anything sweeter than a little baby at the beach? Nope. No there is not.
