One month old

Hudson is one month old today!

It is so hard to believe he's already been here with us for a month. He's growing and developing each day, and is a pleasure to watch. Adjusting to a newborn has not always been easy, but it's worth every minute. I could sit and look at him, and hold him all day.

How he's growing:

He loves to be held and in someone's arms
He either loves his swaddle, or hates it and fights to free his arms
If he is propped up on someone's shoulder he can hold his head up really well, and loves to look around
He is making eye contact and can hold it for a few seconds, which is so much fun
He loves to be outside, especially rocking in the front porch rocking chairs
He is starting to sleep better and longer during the day
He is doing better sleeping at night, but still wakes up every 2-2.5 hours to nurse
He loves being sung to - we sing "Jesus Loves Me", "You are my Sunshine", and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" at night, and a whole bunch of livelier tunes during the day
He spends time each day on his play mat, but has yet to really pick his head up during tummy time
He now loves baths!
He is probably going to be out growing all his newborn clothes real soon, and fitting into 0-3 month
He is generally a very happy and content baby, bringing so much joy to Paul and me

We are so fortunate to have all the support and love of our family and friends. Hudson is blessed beyond imagination to have so many wonderful people in his life. Thank you!

Hudson's 1st Photo shoot

Jana Candler came a couple of weeks ago for a photo shoot with Hudson, and we just got the CD with all the pictures! She did an amazing job, of course, and captured Hudson so wonderfully! We are so grateful to have these pictures of this sweet little boy.

Thank you, Jana!

God Bless
