Hudson - Ten months

His stats:

Weight - 20.2 pounds
Height - 75 cm

His likes/dislikes:

He has just learned to pull himself up to a standing position, so that is a favourite activity now. He also loves to point (especially at plants/trees).

He dislikes his carseat after daycare when we're stopped at a light. He's fine when we are driving, but hates it when we're stopped (full on cry mode).

His adventures:

He got his first sports ball, and much to the Hubs' horror it was a soccer ball. Soon the golf clubs and tennis rackets will be introduced (no pressure, Hudson.).

He went to the park again to enjoy the swing, which he loves.

We celebrated his grandmother's 60th birthday.

And he spent time with his lovely cousin.

He also spent time trying to master pea pick-up using only a pointer finger (not overly successful).

The boy loves to snooze  (but still never manages to sleep through the night - the stinker!).

He also got in plenty of time with his box of toys.

Thoughts on the month:  

Hudson seems to change by the day, and I am so grateful that I'm able to spend so much time with him. I love him to pieces. We've gotten into a good work/daycare routine that involves us all driving in together in the morning. Hudson snoozes (although I think he's going to start staying up as it gets lighter) while me and dad chat (90.5% of the talking is done by me).

This month I realised that you have to take "me time" and "couple time" to avoid breakdowns. I definitely had a breakdown this month where I felt that I was losing my identity. Being a mother is one part of who I am, and when it takes up so much of your day and your thoughts you can easily forget the other aspects.

Off for an evening pram walk,
