8 Months Old Today!

Hudson is 8 months old today! It is so much fun to watch him grow and his little personality start to come out. He is so funny and he just brings us so much joy. 

He has his monthly renal appointment this upcoming week and we are anxious to see what his blood work numbers show as his blood pressure was getting so low a few weeks ago that we have now been off blood pressure meds completely! How cool is that?! We aren't sure how long that will last but it's been nice being off of them. We are curious if his kidneys are starting to regulate his blood pressure. We'll keep you posted how his numbers look after that appointment. 

Hudson met his OT and PT this past week. He was tired and they were a new face so it took him quite awhile to warm up to them. But we were given lots of new tips and tricks of things to try this week for Hudson to work on. Our goals are to strengthen his core so he can become mobile and to possibly learn to eat food. Both the OT and PT will come to our home for one hour each to work with him on various needs. There is so much to work on it's a little overwhelming but we have no doubt our Huddy Buddy will some day be chasing after his sisters and into all of their things. lol 

At 8 months, Hudson can:
-Sit for a minute or two un-supported
-loves peak-a-boo
-says da-da
-cat naps throughout the day but sleeps 12 hours straight through the night
-refuses to eat any baby food or take a bottle
-is close to waving and clapping
-still loves his giraffe pacifier the most
-plays with his toes constantly and is so close to getting them in his mouth
-loves playing with toys that make noise
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
