2 Month Checkup

Hudson is now 2 months old. His stats are:

Weight: 12 lbs 2.5 oz 56%
Height: 22.25 inches 19%
Head: 15.75 inches 45%

When I put him on the scale and it said 12 lbs my jaw dropped. I can't believe how big he is getting. He had doubled his birth weight.

We are still having some issues sleeping but I'm hoping it's just a phase and he'll grow out of it. He won't sleep unless he's being held which isn't a bad thing I guess but it's pretty unrealistic when I have a 3 1/2 year old who I still have to take care of. If I'm out and about running errands he sleeps so good in his car seat but if we just stay home I rock him to sleep and he's out so I lay him down and he wakes right up. It's pretty frustrating.

Good news though is he is starting to smile more and more and he has the cutest little smile. He does sleep pretty well at night. . .once I actually get him to sleep that is.

Brookie is still such a good big sister. She held his hand while he got his shots at the doctor today and when he was screaming she was heartbroken. She almost started crying herself because she felt so bad for him. She always has to be the one to buckle up his car seat. She always gets right in front of his face and says, "Hi Buddy."

Here are the kids are first week back to church. What a little stud in his tie:) He looks just like Daddy

Chopped Off

My sister in law is in hair school and I decided it was time for a change. Here is Brookie's hair before. . .
I can't believe how long it is!

Here she is cutting all of it off. I seriously almost cried!!! I've always had Brookie's hair long.

Here are a few pictures after. I love it!!! I think it turned out so cute!

She looks so grown up to me now!

First Photo Shoot

My friend Laci took these pictures of Hudson when he was about 4 1/2 weeks old and I think they turned out really cute! We learned he hates to be naked and on his tummy!

For Easter this year on Saturday we went to Lane's parents house and had an easter egg hunt for the kids, well acutally a candy hunt. They just put out candy not in easter eggs.

Our first family picture, which is pretty pathetic considering Hudson is 5 1/2 weeks old. This is a good one of Brookie.
This one is better of Hudson

Hudson's first easter candy!!
Lane took her around on his shoulders and she got all the candy up high

Sunday morning me and the kids (Lane was working) got up and headed up to the cabin. But the Easter Bunny stopped by our house but put his surprises in the car!

Hudson in his cute Easter outfit. Brookie didn't get one, she got all the candy instead!

We had a great weekend! We sure missed Daddy though. When I was getting Brookie ready to go up to the cabin she asked me if Daddy was coming. I told her no that he had to work. She said, "Daddy works alot." It broke my heart that she realizes her Dad isn't around that much. But I explained to her that Daddy works alot so that Mommy doesn't have too. Which I am so grateful for but at the same time we miss Daddy.
