It's Nicole here. I thought I would start a blog about the family, the pets, and mostly about Hudson rather than continuing to send out copious amounts of emails with photos and updates attached. So this is my first post.
Today Hudson is 5 months, 3 weeks and 2 days old. We started him on solids pretty consistently around 5 months and recently we've added in meats (sorry to all of my vegetarian siblings). Something miraculous happened when the meat hit his belly - he started sleeping through the night. I mean *really* sleeping, not just the Dr.Sears version of sleeping through the night (5-6 hours). He is crashing for a solid 12-13 hours now and it.is.heaven. Last night he started crabbing at 7:30pm, like clockwork, was asleep by 7:35, and did not make a peep until 8:30am.
This morning Mike and I took him to apply for his passport. He had a bit of a hard time reaching the counter, and had to borrow $60 from me to pay the application fee (bum!), but he got it submitted. In 4-6 weeks he'll be all ready for his first time to Halifax/Dartmouth to visit Granny, Pops, Nan, Gramps, Aunt Penny Turner, Uncle Anthony, Aunt Jenny, Uncle Andrew, and (hopefully) new Cousin Hill-Woods. We will be in Halifax on October 15th - October 21st.
Here are some pictures from the last few days.
Babies this age are not supposed to have egg whites due to the possibility of allergies, but the yokes are ok. Despite the picture, he really did eat quite a few. The dogs ate quite a few too after the eggs ended up on the floor.
He sitting up pretty well now unassisted. Cool.
