Hudson at 8 months

Hud man is eight months old - wow, 2/3 of a whole year!  He weighs 16 lbs 7.5 oz and measures 26 inches long.  Most size nine month outfits are still a bit too long.  As soon as he finishes this current box of size 2 diapers he will move on to size 3. 
 He is certainly everyone's favorite and never has a shortage of attention!  He adores Emma and smiles big as soon as we pick her up from school every day.   He loves every move she makes and thinks she hung the moon.  Our blue eyed boy still enjoys bath time, eating and catnapping.  He is usually very content and joyful.  In the rare instance that he is upset he is most always immediately calm when we walk outside.  Some fresh air and time on the swing makes everything better in Hudson's world :)

He is developing quite a playful personality, just like his big brother!   Owen likes to share boy toys with him {cars, balls, dinosaurs, etc}.  Of course they needed a photo in their matching pajamas :)

Hudson's new favorite toy is a green frog that has teethers and makes a crinkly sound.  He reaches for it and then puts it directly in his mouth.  Teeth must be on the way soon!  He can now hold his bottle {and willingly places his hands on it each time} and tolerates tummy time a little better.  He has started staring at us while we eat and seems interested in drinking straws.  This month he tried yogurt, Gerber puffs, yogurt melts and even a few tiny bites of soft serve ice cream for the first time.  He begged for more ice cream {oops!}

We love this sweet boy with all our hearts but can't believe how fast he is growing!

Halloween 2015

Happy Halloween from our hippie, dragon and Captain America!  :)
Please enjoy the overload of baby pumpkin patch photos!  Our carpool of dedicated coaches' wives took a slight game day detour in the rain to get pumpkin patch photos of our kiddos!  

The whole gang!  :)

On Halloween morning the kids enjoyed donuts for breakfast and then painting and mod podging pumpkins for fun.  That evening they dressed up for our annual church fall festival and then trick or treating.    

Our sweet hippie :)

Owen had planned to be Captain America for months!!  He looked great and played the part very well :) 


One of the kids' favorite festival activities {besides the cupcake walk, of course!} was the ice bucket challenge!  :)

We dressed up as {super!} coaches' wives - and didn't even plan it! :)
We had a wonderful night and the kids collected more candy than we know what to do with :)
