We have had a better week at the Reed household! Everyone seems to be on the mend so that is good news. Hudson is still walking around with a limp, but it doesn't seem to bother him too bad. My sister said that his limp is his new "swagger." Joel is afraid it won't go away! Haha!
Hudson has been so much fun lately (despite the broken foot!). He is turning out to be such a funny little kid. He loves to be silly and is SO social! He says "hey" (more like heeeeyyyya) to everyone we pass (really, EVERYONE) when we are out and about, and has this huge toothy grin, and also waves at them with his Miss America wave. He also waves bye bye (a different wave from the Miss America wave!) and says it after we pass the people. It's usually to complete strangers! So funny. I do get a little irritated if the people decide to ignore him. It makes me sad!
He is also doing great with his vocabulary! His newest obsession is the word "cookie." For the past couple of days, when he is in his high chair and it's towards the end of the meal (that I'm trying to force down his throat-ha!), he starts saying cookie. Awesome. We have never given him cookies before, so I guess that he learned that from daycare? Who knows, but you know I couldn't deny him a cookie when he said it so clearly, so now I have been the enabler and it's turned into an addiction. It's bad when he gets out of the bath talking about cookies when it's time to go to bed! Oh well!
And today, I realized that he was doing sign language. I know only one word in sign language, and that is "more." I should probably know more words, but I don't. Well, today, I was giving him a snack and when he finished what I gave him, he did the motion to tell me he wanted more. I was so proud! I have never done this with Hudson, so I am assuming it is coming from daycare. I wish they would tell me what else they have taught him so that I can figure out what I have been missing! I wonder if he has been giving me signs for other things and I have just been ignoring them. I hope not!
