Sweet Hudson turns 6 months

Happy 1/2 Birthday sweet Hudson.
You are just the sweetest little thing.
You are 28 inches long and 20 pounds 12 ounces which puts you in at 92 and 93 %. 
You are a big boy for now.

The brown hair is turning red so holding our breath to see if it stays.
Outside, it is really red
Both bottom teeth are working their way in.
You love to play with stuff and roll all over the place.
Sitting up is a task you have mastered.
Crawling is just around the corner as well.
Mama is the only word you have said.
You are still nursing but will take formula some.
Out of a certain nipple.
The girls and I are finally putting you on the ground to explore.
Daddy is home more now and you love to watch him.
You keep a serious face when watching him for some reason.

We've started solids.
You hate baby rice and oatmeal like Harper.
Squash is your favorite like Hailey Grace.
Peas are your least favorite unless whole.
You have no issue eating.
We worry about you shoveling too much in at one time. 
Strawberry and beet puffs are one of your favorite finger foods.

Oh Sweet Hudson, you have brought so much joy to us.

Hailey Grace turns 6

Our precious Hailey Grace turned 6 today.  She is the perfect mix between sweet and fiery along with some attitude.  HG has two younger siblings who worship her beyond measure which is a wonderful thing but can also have some downfalls.  She is such a good big sister.

HG starts Kindergarten in less than a month, beginning a new phase of life for us all.  We decided to try the public school system here after everyone we encounter tells us how amazing it is. Every.single.person. People from all over the state and surrounding areas have relocated just to put their kids in this district.  We are all nervous and excited at the same time.  I've been showing HG how to carry a tray incase she would like to eat lunch at school some days. The husband thinks we are nuts practicing this. She will need many more presentable outfits, aka half way matching ones, going to school 5 days a week.  This is a big change from Pre K two days a week.

We celebrated this morning with chocolate chip waffles, a tea party, presents and a princess cake.

Big girl wears a size 2!

She couldn't sleep last night, all she could focus on was her birthday.
I think she might have slept 5-6 hours.

Princess Elsa Hailey Grace

They are freezing you incase you aren't familiar with Disney Frozen.
The afternoon was spent at Saxony Beach, just a few miles from our house.
The girls loved it, the water was cold but we enjoyed it.

Hudson dipped his feet in, we weren't too sure about the water supply so wanted to keep him dry.
Back in Elsa after a bath.
Take out for dinner of HG's choice.
Hudson is almost comfortable sitting in this high chair for the entire dinner.
When Harper bounces and won't sit still, she gets put in a high chair. :/

Happy Birthday Hailey Grace we love you more than you will ever know.
