"Baby" Hudson turned 2 about a week ago. Seriously, I think he is going to be "Baby" forever. I've tried to tell him that he's my "big boy" but he wants absolutely nothing to do with that. Nope, he's my "baby" (secretly don't mind a bit!) and the girls still refer to his as "Baby", so I think the name just might stick for a while! Poor kid. He will be walking around kindergarden still being called "Baby"....
We were just in for our 2 year checkup on Monday, and his stats crack me up. He is big for a boy, but smaller than the girls were at 2 years old - a full inch shorter and about 3.5 lbs lighter! This should be fun when they get older....hopefully he has a chance to outgrow his sisters sometime....otherwise it's hard to justify telling him not to hit his sisters when they tower over him;-).
Anyhow, on to Hudson's 2 year stats:
Height - 36 inches - 90th percentile
Weight - 31 lbs, 2 oz - 83rd percentile
Head Circumfrence - 47.5 cm - 71st percentile
Diaper size - 4, size 5 at night.
Clothes size - 24 month and 2T
Just for comparison purposes the girls were:
Height - 37" (99th percentile)
Weight - 34lbs 7 oz, and 34 lbs 14 oz (99th percentile)
Diaper size - 5
Clothes size - 3T
I continue to be amazed by how much different boys are than girls. Mr H is so affectionate and lovey with me, I just love it. He is still nursing first thing in the morning and before bed, and I'm having such a hard time weaning him. Not only does he love to nurse, and not only do I love the time, but he really doesn't like milk so I don't think he would be getting his necessary calcium if he wasn't nursing. Si and I are taking a 10 year anniversary trip back to Jamaica later this summer though and we will be gone for a week, so he will need to wean sometime soon. He's just my baby.....and I don't know that I'm ready to wean either! I'd love to have my body back, but.....
As usual, there's lots going on here. The girls are doing Splish Splash summer camp this week at their new Montessori, and they are loving it. I'm so glad...you never know what the response will be to an all new situation and location. I'm thrilled they are enjoying it. They also don't seem to mind that they are going to school/camp everyday. They are getting upset that Hudson is getting to do fun stuff with the nanny while they are at school, but they would still rather go to school, so that's a definite WIN in my book!
Okay, I've got to be boring you with my rambling. So thrilled summer is here, and I hope you guys are outside enjoying it just as much as we are here!
Until next time -
