Hudson is 11 months

This is just too crazy. Hudson is 11 months and almost a year old! I can see why some people are obsessed with having babies, because they grow up just too dang fast.
I think the best way to describe my Hudson is outgoing, feisty, and determined. He is very friendly and loves interaction with people. He always wants to be held or played with. He can be dramatic when he doesn't get what he wants. For example if I walk past him without picking him up he will start bawling and throwing a fit. Hudson is very particular, and wants exactly what he wants when he wants it. He is a really funny kid.
New this month Hudson has had two teeth finally pop through. Poor guy has been miserable about it though :( He has been waking up in the middle of the night, early in the morning, and seems extra fussy at night. I feel badly for him because it seems like medicine doesn't soothe him much. This has thrown of his sleep and naps especially. We waiver between 1 and 2 naps depending on if he goes back to sleep in the morning after being up early.

My favorite new thing Hudson does is cuddle, give hugs & kisses. He will only snuggle with you for like 10 seconds, but it is the sweetest. His open mouthed kisses are pretty sloppy but I love them.
Hudson goes in and out of eating well depending on the day. I did reintroduce the baby food pouches, and he seemed to like it. He can be annoying to feed, because he will knock the spoon out of my hand or throw food on the ground. I have started to tell him NO, but he just smiles at me. I was nervous that when Huddy turned one he would struggle to switch over to regular milk so I wanted to ease him into it this month. Turns out he didn't notice at all. So I switched him over to whole milk which is so nice to be able to make him & Kingsley the same bottles. His I have to heat up though, because he doesn't like it cold like King did.
Hudson still crawls everywhere, but also walks a lot too. He loves to push his walker, or push our barstools around. Lately he has liked to walk around the couch holding on. He has no fear, it's funny when I take the boys to the park because Hudson is the one climbing on everything and going down the slide. King is the one more worried and cautious. He will only go down the slide if he is holding Huddy :) Hudson loves to walk around and hold my hand. Because he is such a busy body he doesn't love riding in the car or stroller much.
Hudson has been saying a few new words including ball, Doggie, ought oh, and thank you. He also still walks around saying Huddy, Huddy :)
His smile and sweet dimple melt me. I seriously love when he smiles so big with his eyes shut :)
