Out of Touch....

Sorry for the lack of posting lately as I have been completely inundated with other stuff lately. I have finally gotten back into the swing of things with Delovely and have been trying to get that under control because I had so many new inquiries during the time I was in the hospital and ever since that I have just never been able to catch up. Between that, my full-time job, trying to be the best wifey and mommy possible and everything else it's been quite chaotic to say the least. I did take a much needed break this past weekend though and went a got a manicure and pedicure for some me time and then went and did a little shopping afterward as well. So, that was definitely nice! We had a pretty low-key weekend, but did finally get Hudson a tv for his room and found it at Costco of course! We shop there at least once a week so that really shouldn't be any surprise. Oh, and I was a good girl and went ahead and bought Quickbooks at Costco too so I can get my financial stuff for Delovely better organized this year too.

Besides the norm, there's not too much going on around here. Just staying busy pretty much all of the time. I am still anxious about starting to try for another baby soon, but I know that it will happen in due time and that stressing out won't help so hopefully things will work out in our favor and sooner rather than later so that I don't have to get freaked out eventually, ha!

In Hudson news, our little man is doing well and has started learning some more new words recently. I'm still not sure that he doesn't need some type of speech therapy because it seems like he doesn't talk as much as he should for his age, but then again, I know that every child is different and I don't want to compare my child with others because that's not necessarily fair or an accurate way to assess his developmental progress. I figured out though that Hudson does not do what is typical of a toddler in his age range which is imitate. He rarely will repeat things you say the first, second or even third time you say them. Instead it can take him days, weeks or months to pick up that word. Other times, he will just randomly start saying a word he just heard for the first few times! I don't know.....we definitely try to encourage it and he loves to look at and read books and my mom is also really great with reading to him and everything so I don't think that should really be a problem, but who knows. I think that we just have to give him some more time and see what he does. He definitely is a very intelligent little boy in general though, he can remember things that you'd never think a 2 year old would and he seems to be highly inquisitive for his age as well. He also responds well as far as doing things that you ask him to like asking him to bring something to you or to put something away. Of course, there are times he is resistant, but that's not because he doesn't understand what you want him to do, but rather he just doesn't want to do it. I think that with all that he has just learned in the past month or so it will definitely be very interesting and exciting to see how he develops over the coming months. The most important thing is that he has been very healthy and knock on wood, is very rarely ever sick so that has been an absolute blessing! I can only pray that he continues to have a good immune system and stays healthy this year too! My favorite thing these days is him saying "Mom" since he truly never said mom or momma or mommy very often previously and all of a sudden in the past month or so he started saying mom ALL OF THE TIME! I love it! It's kind of odd he says mom instead of mommy or mama, but I think it's perfect and I feel all happy inside everytime he says it! He calls David Dada, so we'll have to still work on that!

That's about it for now....or at least all I've got for now, ha! It's getting late and I've gotta get back on track and then get to bed! Goodnight!

My son didn't talk a lot at first either and I had a friend with a girl the same age and she was talking a lot. It worked out and he is fine and tests as gifted. I think he just didn't have the inclination to talk at that time.
