Hey little man! Once again, a little late on updating! But if you are ever wondering why that is, I will point the finger right back at you buddy! Because you have been a real handful lately! I say that with lots of love- and thank goodness you are so darn cute. Let's catch up on what you've been up to!
-You officially turned 8 months old on Christmas day! We didn't get an "official" photo that day, but we have lots and lots of great Christmas photos of you having a great 1st Christmas and many happy memories! I took the photos above very close to your 8-month mark so let's let those count ;-)
-I believe I also forgot to share your baptism photos here! You were such a good boy and we had such a nice time celebrating you!
-Just after you turned 7 months, you celebrated your first Thanksgiving with these two turkeys:
-As I mentioned before, you turned 8 months on Christmas Day! Look at all the fun you had!
-You love to play, especially with your sisters (even if they make you play dress-up!). Lila loves playing with you too, but she doesn't often let Mommy take her photo so you have LOTS of pics with Charlotte instead.
-Let's talk about the swing, shall we? Oh little boy, how you loved this swing! You loved it so much that you broke TWO of them from using them so much. This is a photo of you taking a nap in a broken, NON-MOVING swing. After a few weeks of that, it was time to part ways with the swing, but you did not like that one bit, little man. In fact, you spent most of December and January protesting it VERY LOUDLY in your crib, refusing to nap. We took lots of car rides to get you to sleep at least just a little bit and, therefore, your mommy now knows all of the backroads in our beautiful part of Loudoun County. Thanks for that. You're still not sure about the crib (at least you will sleep there at night- PRAISE THE LORD!) but as of the past few days, you've made great progress towards napping in your own bed!
-Here you are, looking like an adorable lumberjack. Just because. Your smile and fluffy hair melt my heart SO MUCH and I love that you and I have such a special bond.
-Just a day or two before you turned 9 months old, you decided that you would finally like to have some purees. Pears (and only pears) got you started and only when Mommy left the room. Now you have progressed to fruit blends, but you really, really hate vegetables and the bottle. Are you going to be a picky eater?
-You enjoy grabbing the puffs off of your tray with a pincher grasp, but are not quite sure what to do with them yet. That's ok. Daisy does ;-)-You love playing in water and splash your hands and feet excitedly! We can't wait for your swimming lessons to start this month :)
-You are doted on by everyone and everywhere we go, people stop me to comment on your smile and overall cuteness!
-Your official nine month photos, below. I just love watching you do this sideways thing with your tongue after your teeth popped up on the bottom!
We love you so much Hudson Thomas!!
