Wordless Wednesday

(well almost wordless)

Lincoln had his 5 month check up today. He's a giant - 70 percentile in weight and 90 percentile in height. Look at my baby grow.  :)

Sleeping Beauty

I was downloading pictures from my camera and what to my wondering eyes did appear..... these cute pictures of a snoozing Hudson that I obviously didn't take.

It's so hilarious how he sleeps with his hands tucked under his b-hind.

I also found these pictures that Mike must have snapped of me and H playing on his play set.  The weather had just finished one of its infamous North Carolina summer thunderstorms and we went outside to swing on wet swings and slide down a soggy slide.

I'm not sure if the camera lens was fogging over from the humidity or if mist was in the air, but there are so few pictures of me playing with H, I will cherish these ones despite them being not so great.

H was peeking around the post saying, 'I seeee youuuuuuuu!'

Oh I love him so.

Jumperoo, Retread

Hudson was totally stoked to see one of his favorites reappear.

Toy Story

Toy Story is the latest big thing with Hudson. He has the movie on replay and wants to watch it (at least once) every single day.

He and Mike were watching it together the other day when I caught them with my camera.

I love this little face

I know, I know, I'm his mama and I'm supposed to think he's beautiful, but I think he's really, really beautiful.


And there is my little ham, finally feeling better after 4 days.  Last week I tried to get Hudson to eat some broccoli.  He told me, 'I no eat boc-wee, mama.  It's SUPER yucky!' he he he

Here he is, putting Elmo in time out for biting his baby brudder.

Who knew that when you go to timeout you get a blanket before being attacked by antelopes?   Hudson knew.

'Not nice Elmo!'

H is sick, LW rolls over

Hudson has been really sick with Strep throat so we spent the weekend trying to get him to drink liquids, eat something (anything!), and sleep, meanwhile trying to protect Lincoln from getting the crud.  This is one of the worst weekends we've had in a long, long while.  I am admittedly excited to be in the office on this Monday morning. 

Hudson perked up around 6pm last night (exactly 48 hours after he started the antibiotics) as we were driving to the pediatrics ER to get him treated for dehydration.  The on-call doctor at our pediatrics practice told us that if he would not drink by Sunday evening he had to get IV liquids in him, given his symptoms (sunken eyes, lethargy). So we got everyone loaded into the car and as we were about to drive away, he asked for Goldfish and milk. Mike and I just looked at each other and I wanted to cry - out of relief and sheer exhaustion.  So instead of the ER, we drove to get ice cream.  It was pouring rain but we sat outside anyway as he slurped up his melted sundae. 

Later last night and this morning he was back to his normal self. 

Happy news:  Link rolled over last week!

Bedtime Routine continues....

...with this morning.

^  This was Hudson's version of, 'Take your paci out and smile for Mama'.

Bedtime Routine

It's 8:30pm, Mike is out playing hockey, Link is in bed and Hudson and I are doing what we do every night, snuggling, giggling, watching Dora and talking about his day.  I'm one lucky Mama.

Hudson just told me, 'I make a mess.'.  There are Goldfish crumbs in my bed and I don't care.

And this was yesterday afternoon.  Yup, one super lucky Mama.

Passport Day

LW applied for his passport today. Soon he can leave the country to meet cousins Catie and Daphne.

Photos from 'School'

One of Hudson's teachers (Ms. Kari) took these photos of him over the last few weeks.

They did an 'umbrella walk' and I was admittedly skeptical about who would think it was a good idea to allow a bunch of toddlers to walk around with umbrellas, poking each others' eyeballs out. But it turned out okay after all.

And I am told that my umbrella is the only one that came home broken, having being smashed into the ground by my little monster.  So typical.

His fascination with hats, sunglasses and bags continues.

I love this next series.  I'm still amazed that 2 year olds would stay sleeping on their little cots, but they do.
