Hudson is Six

Dear Hudson,

Six years old!  I can hardly believe it, but if I am honest I can't remember life before you.  You have blessed our life in ways that I can't even put into words. I am so beyond thankful for you.

You started Kindergarten this year.  This has been a much bigger adjustment for me than it has for you. You are thriving. You love school, love your teacher, love your friends.  You have learned to read which is still mind blowing to me. Listening to you read is one of my favorite things to do. You enjoy practicing writing and you are diligent about school. I told you I had to pick you up early one day and you were very concerned about getting your work done. You have made some sweet friends this year, friends that I hope you have for a very long time.  Your teacher has been the perfect fit for you and we are so thankful. You are right where you are supposed to be and it is perfect.

You have really become interested in sports this year. You love to watch anything sports related with your daddy, especially basketball. Speaking of basketball, you played for the first time this year and you really loved it!  It was so exciting to watch you play.  I love watching you play any sport.

Your sister is your best friend.  You love each other so much and you take such good care of her (even when she is being 3).  You play very well together and you will even play "girl" stuff with her sometimes (but, don't worry I won't tell anyone).

You love going to the park, zoo, bounce house, fossil rim - anything outside and/or active. I miss our daily outings, but we make the most of your time away from school.  We try to go to the park after school on pretty days and take a Fun Friday adventure most weeks.

You have been on allergy shots for a year. I am so proud of how well you have done.  It is not easy getting a shot every week, but you have been beyond brave.

One of my favorite things about you right now is your thirst for knowledge. You question everything and I love it (even if I have to google some answers). I especially love how much you love reading the Bible and expressing your love for Jesus. It makes Daddy and I so happy. I pray that you will always cling to that.

You are so creative.  The stories you tell are hilarious (and very involved).  You love to draw, paint and sing.  And you have gotten very into Legos and are incredibly skilled at putting them together!

You are growing up (too quickly), but you are still my cuddle bug.  And I love that so much.

We love you more than words can say.  I pray every day that you know and feel the love we have for you.  I don't want a day to go by without realizing how very special you are to us.

I love you sweet boy.
