And He's off!!!!

Hudson is walking!! He is still very unsteady and he walks with his arms either above his head or out to the side. Every day he gets more brave and will walk farther. This kid has so much energy and is always on the move! Thank heavens he takes good naps and lets me rest. He still crawls more than he walks only because he can speed crawl and get wherever it is he's going so much faster!!

I was trying to upload a video of him walking but it's not working so instead I'll leave with these 2 funny pictures.

Hudson found her baby's bottle and apparently was thirsty!

Hudson 1st birthday party was a little bit stressful for me. His party was the same day that Brookie had her dental work done and as you read my day didn't go quite as planned. Luckily my sister, Erin was there to help! I did a barnyard animal theme. I ordered all these cute decorations on line and made his cake, which was a lot of work!

I made homemade pizza for dinner which is Hudson's favorite.

Ok don't look too closely at the cake. It was my first time ever making a cake like this. It was a lot of work but I'm proud with how it turned out!

Hudson wasn't really into ripping the wrapping paper off. So Brookie helped out with that. He'd rather play with the paper and get in the box.

This was probably his favorite toy. It bounces and makes music and he thought it was pretty cool, as you can tell by his cute chubby face!

We stripped him down to his diaper and brought out the cake.

His cake was supposed to be a hay bale but it was pathetic so I didn't even take a picture of it.
He knew exactly what to do and dove right into it

He was so nice and wanted to share with Daddy

It was a great night surrounded by family. It was a lot of work but definitely worth it for my little man!!!
