Well my sweet baby H is officially an entire year old! The saying time flies when you're having fun is sure an understatement but the only way to describe the past year of our lives. This year has been amazing, emotional, hard, exhausting, happy, joyful, tear-filled, and full of laughter! Becoming a mother has made me feel so many emotions that I honestly didn't even know existed. There is the kind of joy that makes your entire chest swell with happiness and pride. Then there is this kind of sadness that can make your heart physically ache for the well being of your precious child. Parenthood is truly a miraculous thing. 

Hudson has changed SO much in the first year of his life. It really is unfair just how short of a time they actually are a tiny baby. 

H says SO SO many words that he surprises us with new ones almost daily! He can say "hiiii, bye, mama, dada, papa, night-night, light, what dat?, dance-dance, hot, happy, soft and yay!" 

He signs milk, tree, wind and all done. He is crawling so fast and taking steps while holding on to us with one hand.

He loves to climb, explore, give kisses and hugs, play silly games we've made up, dance-dance, listen to music, get into mischief, snuggle mama, read books and always play/be outside.

Hudson really has the funniest little personality. He is outgoing yet timid, playful but cuddly, full of laughter but quick to cry, he knows when he's being funny and gets a huge kick out of making people laugh. He is so sweet and tender and kind but knows when its rough housing time (dada time). 

There is so much to say about our Hudson boy but this mama heart doesn't know just how to put it all into words. All I can really say is that this boy is SO loved and this year has been the craziest and best adventure I have ever been on! I cannot wait to continue watching this cherished boy continue to learn and grow right before me eyes. 

Below is a video we decided to do instead of family pictures! It is so fun to be able to see Hudson's little personality shine through in this video and it is something we will cherish for ever and ever.
