Party with Truman

We were so happy to have Truman and Aunt Tracy come stay with us - it was such a party that Hudson felt compelled to wear a party hat! And make a funny face (which we have been seeing quite a lot of lately)!

I just wish we would provide our little superhero with an adequate bed!

The Pancake Quest

Hudson woke up at 6:20 by getting out of bed and going to the potty by himself. As a reward Daddy took him out to get pancakes and to let Mommy sleep in.

Upon arriving at the cafe at 7, we found out it didn't open until 8. That didn't deter Hudson. He had us wait patiently on their front patio until 8. As the woman unlocked the door, Hudson told her "we're here for some pancakes please. "

His patience and manners resulted in a special Mickey Mouse pancake. Happy Boy! :)

Cute Things Hudson Says

Hudson says so many sweet and cute things; sometimes it's hard to even remember to write them down. But here's one from just now. I always tell him I don't want him to grow up and please stay mommy's baby forever.

Just now at dinner, I said:
"Hudson, did you know that you are growing, and that's why you are so hungry and sleeping more, so you can grow big and strong!"

Hudson looked at me with those big blue eyes and answered,
"And you want me to stay just the way I'm are?"

Sometimes, it hurts how sweet he is.

(Right now, he also answers most any question you ask him, "a little bit, but not tooooo much." You can't imagine how many circumstances he finds to answer this way. I have no idea where he got it. He also answers "No Way!" with a big smile a little more than I would prefer.)

Hudson's first fish

> Thanks to some other nice guests sharing their fishing gear, we had a great time fishing in the lake at Lost Pines. Hudson caught his first fish - with brisket! Can you see it there, in front of Kirk's leg? You shoulda seen the one that got away...
