Sibling Fever?

The Hangout

(while working on our letter sounds)
Me: "F-L-O-P...what does that spell?"
Hudson: "Becky."

(to the girl checking us out at Target)
Hudson: "The mailman is going to bring me a baby sister."

(while I was getting dressed)
Hudson: "You smell adorable!"

(while playing)
 Hudson: "I'm just the only kid." (suddenly making a sad face)

(when he was playing with his cousin)
Hudson: "No WAIT! Let me ask my Mama. She's in a bad move."

(after he saw some clothes hanging in my closet)
Hudson: "Mama! Your clothes have arrived."

(at the store, after seeing the carts that carry two kids)
Hudson: "I want to ride in that one!"
Me: "No, those are for the people that have two children."
Hudson: "Well, I'm gonna have a baby sister and a brother."

(while watering the plants)
Me: "What am I going to do about my dead plant?"
Hudson: "Just give it some love!"

Hudson: "I wish I had a little brother. If I had a brother I would name him little sweet pie. And if he cries we need to hug."

(after I made up a bedtime story about visiting Never Never Land)
Hudson: "Tell me another one? Your stories are the bestest."

Even though I haven't written one of these posts in months,
rest assured, 
Hudson is still saying the wildest, funniest, sweetest things....
every day.

Hook, Line, & Sinker

Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing
Hudson goes fishing

We caught two fish!
After a lot of sitting and waiting,
the catching was the fun part.
For us, at least. 
I don't guess the fish would agree.

I love this place that time forgot.
I love that you can take a photo today,
and it can look like it was taken so many years ago.
I love that you can take a walk and hear nothing but the sound of the breeze,
rustling the leaves in the trees.
I love this sweet home Alabama,
and the skies that are so blue.
I love that I am surrounded by beauty that steals my breath,
and creatures that fill me with complete wonder.
I love this wonderful life. 

p.s. here is a video of that huge turtle in action. NIGHTMARES!!!!

On the night before his 4th birthday,
Hudson sat with us at the dinner table,
and I could tell he was thinking hard about something.
A few minutes later he said:
"Am I gonna be big tomorrow? Or will I still just look the same."

Our sweet pea woke up to a room full of balloons,
a breakfast of rainbow pancakes,
some sweet birthday phone calls,
a birthday email from Santa Claus,
presents from Mama & Daddy,
and a day of fun!

We went to see the movie Planes,
and had dinner at "Chuck E. Cheezit's", as Hudson calls it.
It was a perfectly fabulous time,
for our perfectly fabulous FOUR year old!
