18 Months Old!

Little Mister is 18 months old today! He is seriously happy all the time except when one of his sisters tries to hug and kiss him. He loves reading and looking at books, being held by mama, wrestling with dad, being outside, knocking over towers, and playing in the kitchen cabinets.

He is doing amazing at walking while holding onto one finger but still lacks the confidence to let go while walking or standing. But he is doing amazing at cruising and we know he'll let go when he's ready. Hudson is working hard at sensory play and we are excited to share he crawled through the grass 3 times this week, with pants on. lol We are going to be incorporating baby signs, in our daily life, in hopes he'll pick up for a means of communication. We are in the process of meeting 3 new therapists that will be working with him through First Steps. We are excited to watch him continue to grow over these next 6 months. And speaking of growing, Hudson has been weighing in at 21.9 pounds on the scale (we even hit a 22.0 on the scale the other day)! We are beyond excited at his weight gain this past month! We are so glad we made the decision to start the blended diet as he's adjusted well. Tomorrow we should receive his new feeding pump that will allow for us to give him even more of his blended diet without clogging the lines. This new pump is supposed to be super light so when he starts walking he can wear his own pump! Etsy shopping for a new super adorable backpack here we come!  

Thank you for always being their to encourage and pray with us! We have a so much going on right now and continue to wait in anticipation for his upcoming transplant evaluation.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
