Well, more like a little off the back technically.
On Sunday Granna gave Hudson his first haircut. Rat tail removal was a success. I think its funny that our almost 16 month old just now got his first hair cut. That boy is turning out to be more and more like mama. I apparently didn't have a head full of hair til I was 3 so looks like that's the path Hudson is going to take. Awesome. Good thing our buddy is a boy!

On a side note. Can you please take some time to pray for Hudson and me right now? He is on an eating strike for some reason. He's had eating issues for some time now but he had really made some strides this summer and was becoming quite the good eater. Which was such a relief! However, over the last 2-3 weeks he's really regressed. I don't think the boy eats but a handful of cheerios and fruit all day! Before buckling down yesterday I was giving him anything and everything I knew he'd eat because I was getting so worried and didn't want him to starve to death.
However, per the doctors orders I am filling his tray with the basics - the foods we eat - healthy foods - a variety of foods - you name it, I'm trying it. If he doesn't eat what's on his tray that's it. He doesn't get any milk after (because the doc says he'll just figure out if he doesn't eat what's out then he can fill up on the milk) and then runs around or goes to bed on an empty tummy.
Hard. Very hard. Hard on baby. Hard on Mommy. I have cried lots this week as well as Buddy. Please pray that God would restore his appetite and allow him to enjoy mealtime. Right now it's like wrestling a bull to get him in the highchair. Please pray for me and that God would grant me patience and trust during this time. Right now its so tough for me because I get really frustrated and angry that he refuses to eat. On top of that I am extremely worried about his health. Basically this is consuming my every thought throughout the day. Thank you, your prayers are much appreciated:)
I know, our buddy is well over 12 months old. Mommy was just a tad bit late on getting Hudson's one year pics taken. Call me a procrastinator. It's not like I've never heard it before. However, I guess the whole "better late than never" motto can be applied here.
Check out some of our favorites below. We had Courtney Ritchey from Chic Boutique Photography take these "one year pictures" of Hudson - when he was 14 months old. Ha! I just now got around to picking up the CD of pics and posting them. Enjoy! I think she did a fabulous job.
