Three Magic Touches

So Hudson Wade has been colicy lately :( and anyone whos ever had a colicy baby knows how exhausting it can be for mommy and baby! There seems to only be 3 things that calm him down and distract him from his hurting belly when nothing else works!

1. A ride in the car.
Today, after trying almost everything else, I finally buckled him in and we went for a ride to Smoothy King where I ordered a much needed Strawberry Kiwi Breeze to take the edge off! Sure enough, he was asleep in only a few minutes!

2. A Warm Bath!!!
Hudson Wade loves bath time! He isn't quite yet to the point of playing in the water but he sure does like to relax in it. Who doesn't, really? He sometimes even falls asleep when I wash his hair! It's so cute!

3. Last but not least:
Above all other kinds of lullabys, worship music I his favorite! Some of our favorites include Draw Me Close to You, Lord Im Amazed By You, The More I Seek You and Hillsong's In Your Freedom. He falls asleep to the sounds of worship music each night. The presence of God is so soothing for the both of us... Especially after a long day of dealing with colic!

I will leave you with one cute thing that Hudson Wade did today. I was holding him and he sneezed and when I looked down at him he had a big grin on his face. He is beginning to smile not only in his sleep (which makes my heart melt) but also while he is awake and alert!
