Hudson at 7 months

Hudson is now seven months old!  Our little pumpkin weighs 15 lbs 6 oz and measures 24.5 inches long.  He still wears mostly size 6 month clothing and size 2 diapers.  His hair is getting longer on top and has some curl to it.  Some days it goes wild and is as cute as can be!  He is such an easy going child and is as smiley as can be :)
Overall he is still a great sleeper but has regressed a bit lately.  He awakens periodically some nights and nurses back to sleep each time.  Daddy can swaddle him crazy tight but he always manages to wiggle his arms free.  He still cat naps a few times per day for about half an hour each time.  Snoozing in noise doesn't bother him at all {of course he has no choice with big siblings!}  Daddy's football games kickoff at bedtime which has been an adjustment!  He goes with the flow and snoozes well in the Ergo carrier.  Typical coach's kid :)

This month he endured his first cold and also enjoyed his first shopping trip in the big boy stroller as well as his first time swinging at the park.  He could have stayed there all day!  Once Fall-like temps arrive we will be spending lots of time outdoors :) 

He is our social butterfly and people often stop to soak in his sweet personality.  Unless he is very hungry or sleepy he is usually happy and content!  He especially loves to bathe, swing outside and spend time with his favorite big sister :)   He doesn't reach for toys yet but often gets a strong grasp of hair or earring and doesn't want to let go!  He has become VERY talkative this month and loves to share his opinion {whatever that might be!}  He even says "Mamama" :)

He still enjoys eating!  He eats 5.5 ounces every three hours like clockwork and eats baby food twice a day.  We added avacados and bananas this month and we also started mixing foods together.  He seems to like both fruits and veggies and opens wide for the spoon :)

He had his quarterly clinic day at TCH this week and everything looked great.  He only had to endure one quick test.  He had blood work done on his arm for the first time (opposed to his heel like before) and was NOT a fan.  He impressed everyone with his smiles and chatter.  As long as everything stays stable we won't have to go back until mid February (yay!)

He now recognizes his bottle, the sound of the bath water running and his nap time hymns.  He does PT once a month and is getting stronger.  He can sit independently for a few seconds and is learning how to hold his own bottle.  He can turn from side to back when enticed by the TV ;)

This month he attended Bunco with me so I included him in my costume!  I may be biased but he was the cutest little pigskin I've ever seen.
