Interview with Hudson 23 Months

I can't believe Hudson is almost two!  Sad and happy at the same time.  Sad that it is going by so fast and so happy that he is a happy, healthy, smart, beautiful two year old.  We are so blessed.  Although he is acting like such a two year old by testing us constantly and having extreme tantrums lately I will take those any day knowing that he is growing and thriving and figuring out his way in this world.  There are so many parents who aren't as lucky as we are.  

So it seems that December is going to be a pretty busy month for us with Christmas and Hudson's birthday so close together.  This year just seems so much more busy with the addition of a 2 month old. Taking a baby out shopping during flu season in crowds doesn't seem like a great idea so my Christmas  list is getting checked off slowly. We did manage to get our Christmas tree up and after one broken tree stand it is standing strong.  Hudson is so excited about the seeing the lights this year.  He has also become a big fan of Santa Claus.  I don't think he quite understands what Santa does but he still asks to see him often and likes all of the blow-up Santas in the neighbors' yards.  

We took Hudson to his first Christmas parade last week. It was the (big) ;) Pleasant Garden Christmas parade that I was a part of when I was younger.  He wasn't quite sure about it but he did like the fact that they threw candy from the floats.

Hudson is saying so many funny things lately so I decided to do a little interview with him before he turns 2.  As you can imagine I got some random answers.

What is your favorite color? "Green" 
What does Santa say? "Yo, Yo, Yo"
What is your favorite food? "Ice Cream" and "Chickaflay"
What do you want to be when you grow up? "Time Out"(Can you tell that we are in time out a lot lately?)
What do you want for your birthday?  "bike"  and "purple"
How old are you going to be on your birthday?  "birthday cake" (When I asked again he said, "two!" and held up one finger.) He has started telling me everyday that he is going to get cake on his birthday and he is going to blow out candles and he is two.  He likes to say "Happy Burp-i-day!"
Who is your favorite person? He just smiled and laughed because I don't think he really knows what favorite means yet but I was really hoping I could get him to say "mommy".
What is your favorite song? "Wiggles"(in reality, at the moment I know it is either "Even if it breaks your heart" by the Eli Young band or "Must of had a Good Time" by Parmalee)

When he isn't having a tantrum and not in time out, Hudson really keeps me laughing.  He is not really a quiet child and talks all of the time.  The things he says remind me how fast he is growing up.  This morning for example:  Zach: "What do you want for breakfast Hudson?"  Hudson: "Ummm Guacamole....No, ceri (cereal)!"  Zach: "Do you want milk or water?" Hudson: "Milk please, no coffee"  :)  I also thought it was funny that he told me one morning after a vomiting episode in the middle of the night that he "Spit up on the bed" and "Daddy cleaned the sheets" Thanks Zach for letting me sleep through that.  :)

 unsure about this Christmas parade stuff

 Hiding from something on one of the floats

 Baby Luke didn't get to see much but he enjoyed his time outside anyway.

 Pretending to drum like the drummers in the marching band

 Sharing cereal with Daddy.  He was actually racing daddy to make sure he got the most cereal. Hmm.. just like his daddy.

Daddy is teaching him the important skills in life.

Putting up our first real Christmas Tree.
