Hudson, you are 3 years old big boy!
You weigh 31lbs 11oz and are 37 inches tall!
You have grown a 1/2inch since November!
You are wearing 2T clothes, but are about to move to 3T for length!
You also wear big boy undies! Yay! You have been since October, but I will say that you are probably just now getting to be 100% potty trained (having a little brother gave us some set backs).
I could go on and on about the things you love, but I made this little poster as a shortened version ;)
You LOVE trains!
You also really really love Toy Story (the movie & toys). You recently got cowboy boots which you wore almost two months straight and we had to write your name on the bottom.
You have an imaginary friend Jesse, which I can't help but picture looks just like the red headed movie character. You call her on the phone, talk to her when you're playing, ask to buy her stuff at the store, etc.
You other favorite things to do are play play dough and draw & color.
You are quite the talker! You talk ALL day long about EVERYTHING! I wish I could record some of the things you say, you keep us laughing. You are really into talking about what everyone is doing, what cars they drive and what they like to drink. You say "what are doin'?" all the time.
You are really good at reading environmental print (ya the teacher coming out in mommy). You name every restaurant and store we pass when driving.
You also have memorized several stories that you "read" to us. You "read" to us from your Bible about Palm Sunday, the crucifiction, and the resurrection. You also "read" Love You Forever. You love to read stories and visit the library.
You are bound to be a musician, besides it being in your blood you are absolutely obsessed with the guitar. You stole a ukulele from mommy's classroom and you haven't stopped playing since. You got your first acoustic guitar for your birthday and you have played it constantly. You play and you make us sing songs like ABC's, Lover of My Soul, Twinkle Twinkle, the color songs, and on and on.
You love to go to school! I think it has helped you so much in becoming independent and learning about letters and numbers, and socializing. Not that you can't learn those things from home, but it's so good for you to learn from others too.
You LOVE your baby brother and are very protective of him. You tell everyone, "He is MY baby brother." You love to give him his paci, help change diapers, and you always have to know where he is. You don't like when we are away from him. We are so glad that you love him so much, we were a little worried about how you'd react.
Hudson William you are not always easy, but you are worth it. You are strong willed and VERY independent. You don't like help from others and like to do everything your way and by yourself. But even through the tough times we are so thankful that you are ours.
You bring us so much joy! Three years ago we celebrated one of the best days in our life getting to meet you and we wouldn't trade you for ANYTHING! We love you just the way you are! Happy third Birthday sweet boy.
Love you forever,
like you for always,
as long as I'm living my baby you'll be.
