Dec. 31, 2006 Day 367: Merry Belated Christmas

I'm catching up on some overdue posting, so, umm, Merry Christmas!


Dec. 27, 2006 Day 363: Dada, Momma and MoMA -- My 1st Trip to NY City

From museums to shopping to long walks through Central Park, I did it all on my first trip to the Big Apple.

This here is a picture (left) of me at MoMA. MoMA is different from momma. Momma is my mom, Momma CJ. MoMA is a museum. It does not feed me or change my clothes or give me baths, but it does show me art... and I like art.

This picture here is of me and papa. Papa is not a museum, he's my dad, Daddy B. We both got an up close look at this big tree with lights on it in Rockefeller Center.

In Detroit, I take cars, well, I sit in the back seat of cars, rearfacing, to get wherever I need to go. In New York, people take something called a subway to get to places like toy stores and parks and stuff like that. This is me getting ready to get on the #2 train. The #2 is my favorite of all of the trains that I rode. I rode the 3 and the 4, but the 2 is still closest to my heart. I have a lot more to ride, but I'm not sure they'll top #2.

This picture is what I like to call a "Photo of My Family," or "A Family Photo. This is me and Daddy B and Momma CJ in the Center Park. (photo courtesy of Uncle B!) Someday, I'd like to go on the ice with the ice skating people that you can see in the bottom of the picture.

This is me here at Bryant Park, where I got real up close to the ice skating people. Mr. Bryant sure did make a nice ice rink here. Hopefully, someday, I'll get to skate on that, too.

Whenever I needed a refresh on food and a place to get warm, I hung out at Auntie So's loft, where I met lots of other art works.

I also was treated to a fancy steak meal by Chef Leland. He's my double cousin... or is it second cousin... my #2 cousin. Yeah. That's it. He's my #2 cousin, and he makes great steak!

They say New York is the city that never sleeps... well, maybe that doesn't count for 1-year-olds... Yeah, by the way. I'll be 1 year's old in, like, two days. I'm glad I got to conquer New York before my first birthday, but, it's also good to be back home. Stay tuned for my first birthday bash post. Thanks for reading.


Dec. 12, 2006 Day 349: Hope Santa's Not Mad About His Glasses

I met Santa Claus this past weekend, but I'm not sure that it went all that well.

I was doing good, telling him how wonderful of a boy I've been all year -- how I help bring joy to my parents and family and to all of my blog readers -- but as I was explaining all of this to him, I couldn't stop looking at his glasses, and I couldn't stop thinking how fun it would be to play with them.

Well, I got the glasses, but that may be all I'm getting this holiday season. I hope that you can forgive me Mr. Claus. We babies sometimes have a mind of our own... Now, I know that's not an excuse for my behavior, but I hope that you'll take that into consideration when you pass by my chimney on Christmas morning.

Luckily, I hit it off with this reindeer named Randolph, so, he may be able to sweet talk the big guy into to stopping by when that sleigh comes passing by my house. Hook me up Randy!


Dec. 11, 2006 Day 348: My First Flu

OK. Because I was caught up in all the hype of my Times Square appearance, I forgot to mention last week that I just got over a case of the flu.

I know what you're saying, "Hudson? Sick? That's impossible. He looked great on that billboard." But sometimes, I admit, that I put a face on for the camera, even though I might not be feeling well. So, I thought I'd use this post to show that, like all other babies, I too get sick, and cry and scream -- especially when mom takes her cell phone away from me... I don't know why I can't have it! ... Sorry. Where was I? ... Oh yeah... Not everyday is full of red rose petal leafs. Somedays you have the flu.

Luckily, mom got me this new chair, so I was able to sit back and relax, and with a lot of water, and a lot of crackers, I was able to overcome my first virus.

Now who's smiling Mr. Flu?


Dec. 4, 2006 Day 341 BREAKING UPDATE: Hudson Makes It to Times Square!

Dear blog readers, I have an exciting update: My face, the one that has appeared in countless photos on this blog, has now been shared with the world in a billboard in Times Square. No joke!

Take a look at this shot that was displayed on the TIME Person of the Year billboard on Dec. 3, 2006, at 8:03 a.m.

I'd like to say "thank you" to those of you who voted for me for person of the year in the poll I posted to my last blog entry. And for those of you who voted for Polo the Cat, well, you don't see his face in Times Square, do you?

I've been talking with my agent, and we're working on setting up a session for me to autograph copies of my Person of the Year photo. Stay tuned for the details.
