So Busy!!

Well, I am going to keep this short because I am so busy crawling, pulling myself up, and exploring, that I asked Miss Christine to help me blog today. Thanks Miss Christine!!

Hudson has been learning so fast and I feel really lucky to be around for all of these fun growing experiences. Not yet having children of my own, little Hudson reminds me of what a special gift babies are. He has been watching and learning so much this last week, from waving, to responding with laughs and smiles when the people he loves enter the room, and even learning how to tell all the grown ups around what he thinks with cute little grunts and coos. I found this great poem that pretty much sums up how amazing all of the learning is and how special it is to be part of it. Enjoy.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
prayer, and I knew that there is a God that I could always
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each
other.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of
your time and money to help people who had nothing,
and I learned that those who have something should
give to those who don't.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't
feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
wanted to say, 'Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn't looking.'
