17 months

New things this month: I really think Hudson learns something new every day.  It amazes me how fast he picks up on things.  He loves to "color" right now although I often find him using the crayons on the chairs, floor, etc. He has started telling me just "one more" when he wants another book, crayon, etc. Another thing he has started telling me is when he "pee pees" or "poo poos". I guess this is a good sign although potty training isn't even on my radar at this point. He loves Elmo which is so funny because I don't do really any screen time with him.  I guess he has seen Elmo in books. My boy is a major climber.  It's a constant battle to keep him off the kitchen chairs because he uses them as leverage to climb on the kitchen table.  He is doing really well with just one nap a day and it makes my life so much easier because we are able to make morning and/or afternoon plans.

My favorite things about Hudson this month: I'm not sure I can choose any favorite things.  This is such a fun age.  Hudson is becoming his own little person and is fiercely independent.  While this sometime results in tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants, I love seeing him forming his own little opinions.  I love his sweet hugs and kisses and the fact that he still loves his mommy so much. I love that every time he sees a white car he gets so excited and asks for his bff Noah just like he does when he sees Daddy's red truck pull in the driveway. I am so thankful to be this little boys momma!

Sadly, I didn't take a single picture this month other than at the beach and I already posted all those pictures!  I'll do better next month!
