How on earth has it been two months already? I’m going to blink and his infant days will be over. Someone come rock me, please. I can’t handle this.
Likes: Hudson likes being outside, being bounced, and looking at himself in the mirror. He thinks it’s hilarious when I blow air through his (almost nonexistent) hair. He loves being held and watching his big brother be ridiculous.
Dislikes: Honestly, the only times he truly fusses are when he’s hungry or tired. It’s pretty easy to calm him down, considering it’s always one of two options. Of course, there have been the occasional tummy aches as well, but those are getting less and less frequent as his little belly matures.
Sleeping: This is the area that has shown the most improvement since last month. Most nights he gets 3-5 hour stretches at a time, only waking up to eat. He’s even had a few 6-7 hour stretches thrown in there. We purchased a Rock ‘N Play and I’m pretty sure that has made all the difference.
Eating: He’s still continuing to eat like a champ, although he really doesn’t enjoy it when he has to take a bottle. I think he drinks just enough to hold off his hunger until I get home. I’m sure he’ll adapt when he has to take them more frequently in the future. I’m hoping so, at least!
Playing: Hudson’s favorite pastimes are smiling at himself in the mirror, staring his brother in the face, kicking his little legs like he’s running in place, and trying repeatedly to roll over. He wants so badly to be mobile like the big kids. Soon enough, dude. Soon enough.
Firsts: This month, he celebrated his first St. Patrick’s Day and first Easter. He didn’t get any green beer or chocolate bunnies, though. Bummer. Notable milestones included his first huge grin, his first time in 3-month clothing, and his first time technically sleeping through the night. He had a pretty big month!
