Dear Hudson: 5 Weeks



You are 5 weeks old already and your mommy and daddy are amazed at how much you've grown in such a short amount of time. These are a few things we've been learning about you:

-You smile for real now, and it brightens mommy's day. You smile the most when we plant big smooches on your cheeks.
-Your starting to fill out. Your cheeks are getting chubbier, and you are all the more delicious because of it.
-You love bath time, but getting out of the bath is a different story.
- What hair you do have is getting longer.
-Oh, my favorite thing is your tiny eyelashes. I love looking at them when you close your eyes while nursing.
-You get the cutest look on your face just before you latch on to eat; it's like a face of excitement as you anticipate what's coming. So funny.
-I also love what you do with your free hand while nursing. Sometimes you will hold my finger, other times you simply rest it on my chest, but other times you will flail it about so mommy needs to hold it down.
-You are still eating about every 2-3 hours during the day.
-You've started sleeping for4-4.5 hour stretches during the night on most nights for which mommy thanks you.
-You've outgrown your newborn clothes, but you're still not quite filling out your 0-3 month clothes.
-You always sneeze I'm twos.
-You will not sleep in your bassinet comfortably for more than a half hour, so you are sleeping his your rocker, which you love, at night. You like to be on an incline and you like the rocking sensation. Mommy will do whatever she needs to in order to get you to sleep longer at night.
-You hold your head up very well, and you like to be held looking forward at the world.
-You look a lot like your mama with daddy's eyes and facial expressions.

Next week you are 6 weeks old and mommy's maternity leave runs out, but thank goodness for FMLA because I get to spend another 6 weeks home with you. Every moment is precious.

Can you see the similarities between my baby picture and Hudson?
