This little monkey of mine is growing like crazy fast! They typically don't have babies in for well check appointments until they are two months, but I had his weight checked when we were at Kingsley's 18 month check up and little Dude is a hefer! He already weighs 12 pounds. He eats every 3 hours like clockwork for about 8-10 minutes. It's nice he eats so quickly although I hope he starts being able to go longer in between feedings. Especially at night. Kingsley always slept well at nights, where Hudson is on the same 3 hour cycle day and night. It makes me nervous of how I will sleep train him in the future since it doesn't seem natural to him. I just switched Hudson over to size 2 diapers to avoid his constant blow outs. His 0-3 month clothes are already pretty snug, so he can already wear some 3-6 month clothes!
Hudson is such a strong little guy. I am amazed how old he seems since he is physically so far ahead of where Kingsley was at one month. He can hold up his head super well which makes holding him easier. He loves to be held so he can stand on his legs & bounce up and down. He surprisingly doesn't mind tummy time, probably because he holds his head up on his own. The crazy thing is he already rolls over almost every time I put him on his stomach. He also scoots with his legs. Baby boy is so strong.
Unfortunately Hudson is a pretty fussy baby. We are not sure if he has acid reflex or colic, but he is often unhappy. He spits up often, has gas, and just always seems to be uncomfortable poor guy. He is especially awful at nights, which is really hard since that's obviously when I am the most tired. SO frustrating dealing with a screaming baby. It is so difficult for me to get anything done because he always wants to be held or he can't sleep. I feel so sad for him. I am so lucky that Kingsley is so easy and accommodating. He loves his baby brother, and must know that I can only deal with one demanding kid. And although I hate to say it, it does help that Kingsley is into cartoons right now.
I keep praying that although I am having a really hard time dealing with Hudson, I can remember how quickly it goes by. To enjoy the good moments, and realize he won't be a fussy baby for long. I am so blessed to have two healthy boys. I just got to make it thru the next couple months and hope Hudson starts sleeping better at night and getting less fussy.
