I can eat all by my brother Bosco

First comic book!

Hudson had his first meal yesterday! Yay him!!! He LOVED it. WE loved it! Rob, Halmoni and I all took turns putting the tiny plastic spoon into his waiting mouth. He got lots of praise and encouragement, which made him so proud of himself (he LOVES praise, so funny). We went all out and even took out the china for the occasion...Hudson's own Bunnykins bowl that was given to me by my dad when I was pregnant (so my dad was there in spirit too).

He also got his first haircut this week! Rob was brave enough to give Hudson a little trim. I think he looks so stylin! And he read his first comic book with Romy. A lot of milestones this week...

just to let you know...

Life is so weird. My last post of "100 things" was coincidently written the day my dad had a brain aneurysm. Numbers 81 and 82 now seem so poignant. It's just so crazy how quickly your life can change in an instant. He's slowly improving, so keep sending your prayers and good thoughts this way.
