2 month appointment!

Hudson had his 2 month well baby check-up yesterday. It is a little annoying to pay $20 every few weeks just to be told what I already know...happy and healthy baby! But at least you get a nice little ego stroke on what a wonderful parenting job you are doing!

So Mr. Hudson is weighing in at a healthy 13lbs, 6oz which is the 86th percentile. Even though this is my third baby, I am still in awe over how my own body and milk that I produce is enough to grow and nurture this little being! That's 4 pounds 2oz (if my sleepy brain math is correct...) from his birth weight in just 2 months! He is 23 3/4 inches long, 73% for height and up 3 1/4 inches from birth! He is also a little ahead of the curve as far as developmental milestones. He can hold his head/shoulders off the ground very well, he rolls from tummy to back and he tracks people across a room. He's another little smarty-pants Gerrits baby! His pediatrician was checking how well he held up his head while on his tummy and wasn't expecting him to start rolling, he laid all over her stethoscope and supplies while she tried to grab him LOL He also smiles and coos like crazy, he was talking to the mural on the wall the whole time we were there.

6 week pics!



Adorable even when he's mad LOL

I was trying to get a good smile pic which is hard when I'm trying to hold the camera on my shoulder that feels like it weighs a ton with all it's accessories and make goofy faces to get a smile out of him LOL

6 weeks old!!!

We had a good time with Marisol, one of our midwives, at Hudson's 6 week check. He is doing fabulous, up to 12lbs 12oz, which is 1 1/2 lbs up in 3 weeks and starting to wear 3-6 mos clothing already! Where has the time gone?

Last week my family was up for Thanksgiving and we had a great time! Hudson slept thru most of it, but he also had fun making faces at everyone and getting them to make goo goo faces at him in an effort to get a precious smile. I will add some pictures soon!
