Liebster Award

**First off, I wanted to thank you all SO much for your sweet words on my "mommas boy" post the other day. Im glad to know Hudson isn't the only one. We have started to go to some story time/toddler play time at the library. So far he still grabs all the toys and brings them over to me. Im hoping the more we go the more it will help him :) Thanks again everyone, those comments made my day!**

Last week I was nominated TWO times for a liebster award :)
one nomination from Courtney @ The Hippie Chambers
