It was that time again....well-check time at the doctor's office. It is hard to believe that little Huddie is six months old! Everything checked out fine
of course we knew he was perfect.
We have a healthy, happy, and absolutely adorable six month old bouncing baby boy.
Just being content with bouncing, unfortunately, is starting to be a thing of the past though. Yep, my days of sitting on the floor beside the little guy watching him chew on his toys
sounds like a dog, not a baby
bouncing him on my knee are pretty much few and far now.
The doctor gives me the scoop on things like, "Now be careful, he will start crawling
and getting around soon. You will need to watch out for small toys around the house, plugs, cabinets, flowers, things that can be pulled over, hot things, heavy things, steps, ..... on and on and on...." I swear, after giving that same speech probably ten times a day for the past twenty years, it was like a broken record. I mean I heard everything, but it was crazy how he didn't even stop to take a breath!!
sort of impersonal to be honest
Plus, I swear Hudson heard everything too!!!
no wonder he was smiling the whole time
I think the boy was sitting there thinking...."Did I hear him say CRAWL
???" .... "Like you mean I can actually get into things like plugs and toys that are out of my reach???"
Hudson has been on the verge of the creeping stage
for the past few weeks, so I have been appreciating these last quiet moments of actually being able to sit down for extended periods of time. I just didn't know it was going to come upon me so quickly. Here we are getting home from the doctor's office, and WHO decides that he can get up on all fours and start to do the combat crawl
across the floor??? Yep! My little Hudson can now go to and get anything his little heart desires
including my toes which I have told him are not for sucking
. I might also add that his sister was running at nine months. What is it with the Phillips' kids? They just can't sit still!
Positive side: Maybe I can now drop those last few pounds chasing this little guy.
Afterthought: What will the Christmas tree be like this year?
