So, Hudson has really started to be more aware of the world around him, which means that he now is observant enough to play peek-a-boo. It is is favorite game to play, though that might have something to do with the fact that he doesn't know how to play many other games.
His fourth tooth has now come in. Like all normal babies, he was drooling like a faucet before the tooth finally poked through the gum. We now call him the four toothed wonder. 
Sara Beth is still obsessing over having either Heather or I be her "Word Horse". She will ride us around the house, keeping an eye out for wolves or coyotes. If I see a wolf while being her horse, I will buck her off onto the nearest couch. She then informs me that I caused her to crush her favorite tomato plant or apple tree. She then needs to ride me to the nearest plant store so she can purchase a new plant to replace the crushed one.
Hudson has really gotten the food thing figured out. He now reaches out to grab food and can shovel it effectively into his mouth (I would guess only 20% misses and ends up in his lap or on the floor). He definitely gets excited when he sees a Mum-Mum (rice cake) package being opened.
Rain has been pouring from the sky these past couple of weeks. It has made the grass nice and green, and it has caused a population explosion among the frogs living down by the local pond. We took Sara Beth down with a net and a bucket to bring some of them back home to our back yard. She carried the bucket with 4 frogs back to our house. She was very proud and excited to release her collection into the muddy part of our back yard. Now, I just need to be careful with the lawnmower as, apparently, Heather and I have heard that the frogs around here are not very bright and don't play well with lawn mowers.
Now that we have lived in our house for over 8 years, our bathroom counter top had started to get stained and chipped, so to celebrate Heather and my 10th wedding anniversary, we treated ourselves to new bathroom counter tops. Sara Beth got her construction gloves and mask on and helped me remove the faucets. Hudson mostly just watched.
