I get a kick out of you.


Hudson,
You make me so happy.
I hope I never forget the cute little things
you are doing....at 2 years and 1 month old.

--the way you crawl up in my lap, and snuggle in, then look up at me and say: "Mama's baby."

--the way you have a bedtime checklist of your favorite toys, and call out to them as you walk to your room: "Oh Blumpy (blanket)? Where are you?" You love sleeping with 2 or 3 trains, your blanket, a monkey, dog, bunny, and Scooby-Doo.

--the way you sing so sweetly.

--the way you always say "It's ready!" if you hear the oven or microwave beep. 

--the way you put your fingers to my mouth, and stretch it into a smiling position and say: "Happy, Mama?" 

--the way you lay on your beanbag by the back door, kicking your feet on the glass and yelling at the dogs: "Kota! Lulu!"

--the way you kiss your stuffed animals. 

--the way you say "Sorry!" and mean it. 

--the way you do "this little piggy...wee wee wee" to your little cousin's ticklish feet.

--the way you say: "Oh! Daddy's heeya (here)" when you hear the back door open.

--the way you like to make me pretend sleep. You always say: "close eyes, Mama!" "sweet dreams!" in a sing-song voice. Then you get really quiet and poke my face until I open my eyes. 

Thank you for making me smile. 
Every day. 
I love you, 
Mama

:D He is adorable!! You should post a vlog sometime of his little voice, I can only imagine how sweet his little toddler words are. I love this stage where they start to talk so much, and they don't quite pronounce things right. So adorable ♥

The Dude said...

Hudson you are one cool and lucky dude to have such a wonderful mom. You have so much personality. It makes my day when I am so lucky to get to hear your voice calling for me when you wake up. Even when I come home from lunch and get to hear your sweet little feet running to greet me saying dada, dada's home. When I say hey dude and you say it right back to me. Playing in the front yard yesterday running around kicking balls and just having fun. Hudson you truly do make each and every day a blessing. So I also have to thank your mom working and teaching you how to be perfect like her.

I LOVE YA'LL!!!
