8 months of Jack Hudson

December 12, 2016

Weight/Height: Never got a either of these this month; but still a little peanut! No yummy delicious leg or arm rolls
Diaper Size: Still rocking those 3s

Clothing Size: 6-9 months, 9 month jammies

Feeding: Big changes here this month. He is still nursing/taking a bottle 4x/day but now eating so much table food. I looked up a bunch of information on baby led weaning (BLW) and made some recipes like turkey meatballs that he LOVED. He is a garbage disposal and will literally eat ANYTHING. Faves includes avocado, banana, eggs, tilapia, steamed veggies, yogurt, cottage cheese. I am proud to say he has still only had 100% breast milk, which has been a huge accomplishment for me.
Sleeping: No changes here. Sleeping 7-7 at night and 2 naps during the day.

Milestones:  Went from army crawling to hand knee crawling to pulling up to stand on everything! Playing in the snow for the first time. Has 2 bottom teeth and working on his top 2 as well.
Not so sure about the cold white stuff
Loves: He wants to be down on the ground crawling and pulling up on everything at all times! He still loves taking a bath and splashing at water.
Standing on EVERYTHING
Dislikes: Having his nose wiped. Being in his highchair with out food. Finally ok with being his in carseat, car rides are once again enjoyable!

Adventures: Thanksgiving. Meeting his family from Texas. Sleeping for a week in mom and dad's room (ha!).  Another spend the night away adventure at Mamaw's while mom and dad celebrated daddy's 30th birthday!
The fam in from Texas!
Kyle's 30th
What we couldn't live without: Table food that is easy for him to grab and eat. You can find an avocado or banana in my diaper bag at any time.

7 Months of Jack Hudson

November 12. 2016
Weight: 16.4 lbs (peanut!)
Height: Not sure, tiny though
Easily distracted during our shoots
Diaper Size: 3
Clothing Size: 6-9 months (still wears 3-6 months in Gap/Old Navy, wittle guy!)
Enjoying that last little bit of nice weather before winter comes
Feeding: For the most of this month still nurse/took a bottle 5x a day. Now eating solids (purees) 3x a day as well. Doing puffs now too which has been great for when he needs to be entertained while I'm in the kitchen cooking/cleaning, etc. It took him a few days to get the hang of getting them in his mouth but now he's a pro!
Sleeping: No changes here. Sleeping 7-7 at night and 2 naps during the day. Has been waking up earlier this month, 50% of the time he was up before 7. I stick to my strict "no getting up before 7" rule, but he is good about laying there and talking to himself before I get him out. He also sleeps with his booty sticking up in the air 100% of the time now and I 100% die every time I see it.
That booty!
Love his bunny
Milestones: Lots this month! He is ALL OVER THE PLACE. Officially army crawling from room to room. Sitting up unsupported. Eating puffs on his own. Sitting in the front of the grocery cart. First overnight away from momma! This was a big month for Jackaroo!
First time in the front of the grocery cart!
Loves: Eating! His highchair is his happy place. Besides eating he loves to be on the move. He also enjoys banging things together and making loud noises. Typical boy.
Dislikes: Being held still.
Election Day!
Adventures: First Halloween! First overnight away from mom and dad while we went to a masquerade ball - I was up promptly at 7, and (of course) he slept in until 8:30 that day! Voting with mommy.
Fun night for mom and dad!
What we couldn't live without: Frozen bananas in a silicon baby feeder- his "dessert" every night!
