Look Who Slept On His Mat!

Hudson's teacher at school sent me this picture on Friday with a message saying that Hudson went to sleep all on his own on the mat at school and slept there for an hour!  Needless to say, I was shocked.  They said that he had a much better day in the new class on Friday.  Still had a few crying moments but  made it most of the day in the big room.  His teachers also informed me that during a class party that they were having for another child, Hudson took some Cheetos out of the teacher's hand and stuffed them in his mouth.  They said that he loved them so much that they couldn't help but give him more.  Oh well, so much for trying not to introduce junk food. :)  Although his day was better on Friday he did  spike a fever Friday night and it has continued into the weekend.  If it is not gone tomorrow then I guess we will be spending our Sunday at the doctor's office.  Poor guy.

 Hudson woke up really early Friday morning and looked like he was ready for the weekend!  Look at this crazy hair.  We had a bad rain storm Thursday night and it looked like the humidity got to Hudson's hair.   There wasn't much I could do to contain it.

 His new favorite toy. The flashlight.

This can't be good for his eyes. ;)

 Aunt Bec Bec, Kate, Scott, and my mom all came to visit today.  Hudson was content with cuddling for a little while.  I think the fever is making him feel puny.

 Love from his aunties

Hudson's First Daycare Craft

As promised they are moving Hudson over to the "big boy" room (one-year old) class whether I like it or not.  It is not official until next week but yesterday he spent most of the day (minus nap time) in that classroom and made his first real craft!  They made binoculars out of string and toilet paper rolls. Zach picked him that afternoon and said that he was so excited to show him his creation and kept getting Zach to look through it with him.   When he got home he played with it for awhile and showed me how it worked.  I tried to catch a little on video (see above) but he seemed more interested with watching the dogs play.  I posted some more recent cute videos of him on the you tube channel at www.youtube.com/mc3call

Today was a little rough in the big boy class because he is kind of used to doing whatever he wants in the infant room and they actually have planned lessons in this class so they kind of have to stay in a certain area and eat when all the other kids eat at the table.  They have also said no pacifiers in this class...I say, "Good luck with nap time!"   He came home pretty exhausted today because he didn't sleep all day and also has another cold.  (This feels like cold # 100 for him)  I am ready for healthier days!

Hudson is walking more each day and now can make it a few feet before falling.  It is a Very slow few feet in a Frankenstein manner but he is working on it.  He really likes pushing his push toys around and is getting really good at turning them to get where he wants to go.  He also really enjoys ramming them into the wall or any nearby resting dog. :)

My little heart breaker looking like such a big boy!

Hudson's First Kiss

Lindsey and Harper came by to visit this weekend and Hudson loved having a little playmate around.  They played in his ball pit, he pushed her in his car, shared his puffs, and showed her his dance moves. Well, Harper loves to give kisses and she was very anxious to plant a few on Hudson.  Hudson was not quite sure what was going on but he seemed to think it was all pretty funny.  We caught a few of the kisses on camera. :)

 Playing in the balls

 Showing off his Grover puzzle piece.  His newest word this week is "Grover".  Another new word today was "cookie"(AKA: Graham crackers)  Two of his favorite things!

 Pretty Harper


Here are a few other things going on around our house:

 Roscoe thinks that Hudson's chair is just right for him. haha

 Hudson is giving good hugs lately and is loving his bear.

 He loves to swing so we are very thankful when it is warm enough to get outside.

 Loves the slide!

 He is learning about all the cool spot on the playground.

 His funny little move that he does when he is excited.


 Checking out what the other kids are doing.

Hudson has officially taken his first few steps but I wouldn't call him a "walker" just yet.  They broke the news to me at Hudson's daycare this week that they will be moving him up to the one-year old classroom.  I don't know who is more sad about this, me or his favorite teacher Mrs. Maria.  He LOVES his Mrs. Maria and I have a feeling that this transition is going to be rough.  I mean, they sit at a regular table with chairs to eat and they have mandatory nap time for 2 hours on a MAT!  What?!  My baby can't sleep on a mat yet?  Oh man this is going to be so hard on mommy.  So far they have let him visit the one-year old class for 30-45 minutes each day this week and I think he has cried during two visits.  Currently, he is the "big boy" by about 6 months in the infant classroom so being around all the older walking kids seems to be a little intimidating.  He should be fully transitioned by the end of the month. :(  Say a little prayer for us!

This is a pretty funny face he is making but please note that he is actually clapping!  The funny story about this is that I have been trying to get him to clap for months.  We sing "If you are happy and you know it" every day, play patty cake, and clap when he does anything cool but he just laughs and does not even attempt to clap.  Well, we were hanging out with the family in Greensboro Monday night watching the Betty White 90th birthday celebration on TV and it was way past Hudson's bedtime.  All of the sudden the crowd on the TV show started clapping and Hudson just started clapping up a storm. He has been doing it every day since then.  Little stinker. :)
