Fun Happenings

We have had a fun few days, even though little man is teething something terrible. :( We had sweet Landry over one night, so her Mommy and Daddy could go on a date. Those two babies are not cousins...they act like brother and sister. They seriously interact like siblings and fight like siblings too. Hudson loves to grab Landry and she does NOT care for him to bother her, AT ALL. He will sneak in a hair pull here and there and she goes for the pinching and/or biting. I am sure it will grow into a true love/hate relationship bc they are 2 very independent and strong-willed kiddos. Here are some pics of the two little ones.

We were suppose to go to Boo at the Zoo last night, but the weather did not work in our we hung out at the Casa de Fill and had TOO MUCH FUN! Landry was with us again last night and we had several friends over with their kiddos...chaos but so fun! We have the best neighbors that have become our best friends and we just lobe them and their little ones SO much! Here are some pics:)
Kiddos minus 2:)

I love these two more than I could ever explain:)

Amidst all of the crazy chaos, little man stood up all by himself TWICE! NO assistance, no table, no nothing! AND I actually got a picture of the first time on camera while taking pictures of the kids playing and the second time! Here's the second time :)

ECSTATIC I have this pic!!!
Have a great weekend!

First Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

We 3 headed out to the Old Baker Farm last weekend with Amy, Scooter, and little girl (Landry) and had the BEST time! We got to see several different farm animals, went on a hayride to the pumpkin patch and picked some pumpkins, saw a Civil War reenactment (was super loud...cannons, guns, etc - Hudson was NOT a fan, was afraid he left with a pumpkin AND some sort of nervous disorder from all of the insanely loud booms!), and ate Fried Snickers & Oreos and delicious Cajun Boiled Peanuts! I could seriously spend every weekend there! This is definitely going to be a tradition for us every October! Here are some pictures from our trip!
Pumpkin Patch 2011

Sweet nurse, Katherine, that took care of Hudson and I when he was born :) More than love her!
Had to keep this one a leash ;) Like mother, like daughter;)

Checking out the ducks!

Mommy Amy reliving her experience of being bitten by a duck as a child..LanLan was protecting her ;)

LOVED the animals!
So sweet!

Impossible photo op! ;)

"Should we smile at least one time for them Lanlan?" Landry" "Nah."

Civil war reenactment...we were simply waiting in line for the hayride to the pumpkin patch and feeling like extras in the movie Sweet Home Alabama...

HATED, with good reason, the cannons and guns!

"Why I ought a..."

The loves of my life

They were thrilled that I had my camera...

Our sweet pumpkin!

Ohhh Daddy Scoot! ;)

Sweetest girl ever:)

We are off to Bat at the Zoo tonight with little man and several friends with their little ones! Hope the weather holds out! Have a great weekend!

9 Months!


Weight: 19 lbs, 8oz
Length: 29"

Bottle: 5 oz in the am & at lunch; 6 oz around 3 and then again at bedtime

Solids: HDF is eating a mix of baby foods (stage 2 & 3), as well as table food too - which he loves! He has had grits, mashed potatoes, blueberry bagels, biscuits, noodles, macaroni and cheese, chicken, eggs, bacon, carrots, peas, blueberries, and his first "real meal" with Mommy and Daddy was Chicken Pot Pie Muffins! He loved it! He is  still doing great picking up food and just the other day, I put a spoon of grits in front of him and he picked it up and put it in his mouth!

Sleeping: Over the past 5 days or so - Hudson has finally been able to keep himself asleep when he wakes up and has not been sitting up, then standing! Which is AWESOME! Let's pray it stays that way and we can finally get back to normal (after 2 months of this)!!
Bedtime: 6:45-7

Naps: He is napping pretty well if he is not bothered too much with his teeth. He still takes an early morning nap around 9 for about an hour and a 1/2 & one in the afternoon for about an hour or so around 1:30.

Diaper Size: 3

Teeth Count:6! Two on the bottom, 4 across the front on top :)
-Little man is crawling and crawling FAST! He gets really excited when the laundry room door is open and he darts for it! He is moving around the house by walking, using any object he can to hold onto. He LOVES the end table at our couch bc he loves to try and pull the lamp off of it. He has kind of become a little demolition man around here!
-Still loves his teachers and school! He is still doing so great and just loves his friends and interacting with them. His teacher said that he gets super excited when playing with his friends that he starts wanting to pull on the other children, so they have to move him away and give him a toy;)
-LOVES his footballs! Current favorite toys for sure! Besides cords of course!
-Loves riding in his wagon around the neighborhood
-Claps when you say "Yay!"
-Gives you a kiss you when you ask for one
-His signature sound is "Hmm Hmmm, Hmm, Hmmm" over and over and OVER!! when he wants something or wants your attention
-His newest syllable is "ma" (yay!!), along with : deh, di, and da. Oh and Hmmm of course!
-Still loves music
-Loves being on the go, loves people, and new places
-Loves being outside and loves the grass!

Here are a few pictures from this morning that I took before we left for school! 

Sweet Curls!

Can anyone tell me where my baby boy went?

We officially NO LONGER have a baby :-/ He is growing up so fast, but it gets more and more fun each day!

Have a great week all!
