Hudson - Fifteen months


His stats:

Weight - 24 pounds
Height - 82 centimeters

His likes/dislikes:

He has a strange affinity for plastic bottles, and likes to hold one when we drive (I swear we buy the kid toys).

He's still obsessed with balls, and we recently got him a world ball because you're never too early to learn all the countries!

He loves reading, and we created a little reading nook in his playroom (i.e. the back living room). 

He dislikes baths/showers now, and we're not sure why. He screams when we put him in a bath, but then eventually starts to enjoy it.

We bought him a bunny that I thought would be a security blanket type of thing, but we've realised that for him his security is pulling/playing with his hair. I would hate to see his face if he cut his hair.
 
His adventures:

One day shy of 14 months, he took his first steps! The Hubs and I were both there, and it was so exciting. In the last month he's really started cruising, but there are still lots of tumbles.

To celebrate the Hubs' birthday, we all took a trip to Tasmania, and Hudson experienced flying for the first time. He was surprisingly good, both in flight and during the trip. He loved running around the cottage and hotel we stayed at.

Beginning in January he started to go to daycare 3 days per week, and he seems to enjoy it. He switched rooms so he's no longer eating in a highchair or sleeping in a crib. He's growing up too fast!

Thoughts on the last few months:

He's officially into toddlerland, and it is amazing to see him figure out things. I love when he climbs into my lap and snuggles though, and luckily he does that pretty much every day. We're still cloth diapering, but the diapers were having some issues which may have been from extra detergent on them so I washed them several times. We're also still breastfeeding, and I'm not sure when I'll start weaning. I'm still pumping at work and he gets two 200ml bottles for daycare days and feeds on demand at home. He's a really good eater, and loves his fruits, veggies and oatmeal. He starting to feed himself more, which is messy but fun.

And no post is complete without photos . . .














These moments are so precious and I am trying so hard to soak up each and every one of them!

Off to entertain the lil man,
