Like a weed

He's been busy...

growing teeth...

one and a half to be exact...

just being cute...
learning funny faces...

growing his mohawk (all natural courtesy of his double crown).


and...being MOBILE!!!

Hudson has been busy too. Busy trying to give me a mental breakdown. He's testing his boundaries by doing the exact opposite of what we ask of him. I'm scared for the teenage years.

Murphy's Law

Your child will get sick at the most inopportune time.

Everyone warned me that once Hudson started school, he would get sick a lot the first year. It's not surprising, considering there are almost 20 kids in his preschool. 20 kids all playing with the same toys. 20 kids = a gazillion germs.

Anyway, to make a long story short, Hudson has been out of commission with a double ear infection since last week. He's been dealing with pain in both ears, an ongoing fever, the runs (side effect from his antibiotics), loss of appetite, loss of hearing, and body aches. Poor baby.

As a result...we missed:

1. MY volunteer day at his school (each student's parent is responsible to "help" the teachers once a month). I totally wanted to spy on Hudson flirting with Emma...the girl he can't stop talking about.


2. The Welcome Potluck Party at his school (who doesn't love a smorgasbord of free finger foods?!?)


3. And most of all...a weekend roadtrip to Toronto (for a wedding of an old family friend and getting to hang out with my two favorite boys over the age of 4, besides my husband). Note: this is the second time I haven't been able to wear this amazing green dress for a special occasion that got nixed.


He couldn't have gotten sick any other, typical week, when we've got nothing planned.

Like I've said before...kids are party poopers.


Look at the fun we missed!!! My beautiful niece, sister, and mama in all their drunkeness silliness.
