Edison's Edition (5 Months)

Weight: 17 pounds, 13 ounces
Length: 27.75 inches

I am in denial that Edison is only one month away from starting solids. I feel like he is just a baby but when I look at him, I can't deny it anymore. He is starting to look like a real person. Something that is guaranteed to make Edison happy is to smother his face with kisses. I love kissing his face and so this works out perfectly. He still spits up but it seems to be happening less and I can also kind of predict when it is going to happen. He likes being smashed: having Alex hug him by lying on top of him, having big balls resting on his stomach, etc. He is such a cutie. I can't contain my kisses around him. His face just must be kissed.

I spy with my little eye a baby with two chins.

Photobucket
He is perfectly content being on the floor and watching Alex run around.

Photobucket
Always kicking.

Photobucket
I wish Mommy and Daddy would have gone for the house with the bigger tub.

Photobucket
This book makes me have crazy eyes!

Photobucket
No pictures! We were having a moment!

Photobucket
Give it back!

Photobucket
So... this is my bed.

Photobucket
Sleeping in the big bed.

Photobucket
Good morning!

Photobucket
So many pictures, not enough food!

Photobucket
Edison was planking...

Photobucket
...and Alex felt left out.

Photobucket
He rolled over (back to tummy) for the first time on 8/13.

Photobucket
Daddy uses him as a pillow.

Photobucket
His skin is perfect. I want it.

Photobucket
So comfy.

Photobucket
His tongue is out of his mouth 95% of his life.

Photobucket
He sat  up for the first time on 8/18.


Photobucket
But sitting up is hard work.

Photobucket
He has a great big brother who loves him.

Photobucket
He looks so old!

Photobucket
Toys all around, but fingers are better.

Photobucket
Get in my mouth!

Photobucket
What up?

Photobucket
Sleeping while Mommy made party decorations.

Photobucket
Now that he's rolling over, his kitchen table days may be over.

Photobucket
The fish at PetSmart bore him.

Photobucket
Achoo!

Photobucket
He has a brother who runs around him so fast he becomes a blur.

Photobucket
He still loves having people hover over him.

Photobucket
Buses are delicious.

Photobucket
What's up with this handle?

Photobucket
He has amazing bed head.

Photobucket
Hoarder.

Photobucket
Mommy is sleeping... perfect time to punch Alex.

Photobucket
Sharing Alex's crib.

Here are a few more things Edison does for which I do not have a matching picture:
He...
...gets the hiccups when he laughs.
...still has blue eyes but they are getting darker.
...has so much awareness in his eyes.
...takes a 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon (at the same time as Alex) and sleeps 8:30pm-6:00am, eats, and goes back to sleep until 7:30am.
...has a really hard time nursing if people are making noise around him.
...has zero teeth!
...reaches for toys and loves shaking rattles.

and... you make me so baby hungry for a little boy. oh my lanta. too bad i can't just get one at the local store. but if that was possible, all the cute ones like Edison would be sold out! what a doll he is.

What a cutie! I would want to kiss his cheeks all day too! Love the squish able ones! Do you ever go back and compare alex's month posts to edison's?

He looks so much older when he's sitting than when he's laying down too! Oh how fast they grow!

You have a couple of blondies on your hands!! CUTE!! I almost died when you said he was 5 months...it really doesn't seem like it's been that long, but he's definitely getting bigger!!

Oh, so so cute! I'm sad that I feel like I won't know Edison like we got to know Alex at this age. . .Guess we'll just have to come visit Texas.:-)
