Hudson started to crawl this weekend, but even today he had begun to improve. It's pretty basic at this point, but it's forward motion. :)
Happy Birthday Buela! (Chris Wright's grandma name) You'll really have to hustle next time you visit to keep up. :)

Miss Christine is my new nanny. She is very nice, smiley, and has red hair. Playing with Christine has been so fun! Since our first meeting almost two weeks ago, we have become great pals. I hope she can tell how much I like her by the way I drool extra nicely when she is around:)
Our first days were full of adventures. We explored the park, the backyard, every fun toy in the house, and even the pumpkins at Central Market. We listened to music, danced, and she sang to me every day. Christine is helping Mommy and Daddy teach me sign language. She likes to show me how to sign the words eat, more, please, finished, and even thank you. She told me that I was a smart baby and that one day soon I would be able to do the signs all by myself. I can't wait to show Mommy and Daddy my words.
Christine and Mommy decided this week that I would stop having a third nap. I am so excited to have all that extra time to play. I also grew so much that some of my clothes don't even fit me anymore. I am getting to be such a big boy that I can get on my hands and knees and push myself back and forth just a little. I can't wait until I can crawl all over the place so that Mommy, Daddy, and Christine will have to chase me because I am so speedy. That will be the most fun of all.
I had a special treat with Christine today. I was extra cute so that she would give me a bath, and she did! I love bath time, so I thought maybe Christine would too, and guess what. . . she does. She gave me such a good bath that I think I might be extra cute again next week to see if she will do it just one more time!!
Could you just die? So sweet. I'm so happy we picked her too!
We did have a big first on the trip - we decided to officially call yesterday his first day of crawling. He had been working up to it for over a month. Every day, we've said any day now, but yesterday he kind of put it all together with hands and knees - although it was definitely the Frankenstein version that is so cute when kids first start to walk - very jerky. Scary but exciting!
Hudson also broke records with his DROOL today! We were good parents and brought 5 bibs with us on the plane today, but we could have had DOUBLE that and they still would have been soaked! Surely we're getting closer to a tooth!!
Oh and Hudson said da-da-da-da-da all the way home on the plane. Something just clicked for him I guess, and of course Kirk got a huge kick out of it. :) No signs of ma-ma yet. Ma-ma not too happy about that!
Hudson was understandably tired tonight, so we put him in front of Baby Einstein for a few minutes - I think it's called Neighborhood Animals. Anyway, at a certain point, I heard him cry from the kitchen and I ran in there. It was those darn river animals. From the first time he watched that video, he hated this one certain part with otters, etc. But he'd never actually cried at them. Kirk and I got a good laugh out of his unexplained hatred of otters. :)
We'll post a few pictures of our trip soon.
