Edison's Edition (6 Months)

Weight: 18 pounds, 8 ounces
Length: 28 inches

*I don't like to compare my kids, but let's just take a moment to appreciate that Alex weighed 18 pounds, 10 ounces at one year old! Edison doesn't even crawl yet which means this little mommy carries him everywhere.*

Today is Edison's half birthday. He has been around for half of a year. A whole six months. I can't say that I can't imagine life without him, because I remember life before Edison came along, but I don't want to go back. He has added so much to my life. He can make us laugh so hard. He can make Alex laugh hysterically! Of course, Alex returns the favor. I am so glad my boys get along. I hope they continue that for their whole lives. We decided to have our first two really close together so they could be best friends. I love seeing that come to pass a little more each day. Edison has some amazing facial expressions. He coos and cries, but other than that, he really uses his facial expressions to tell us how he feels. I enjoy getting a little look into how Edison really feels.

Sweet snuggles.

Photobucket
Bullseye.

Photobucket
Careful ladies. He's a boob man.

Photobucket
Why does he get a high chair?!

Photobucket
"How can I get those pieces in my mouth?"

Photobucket
Bright flash!

Photobucket
Bowls are one of his favorite toys.

Photobucket
"Give me the camera!"

Photobucket
I was trying to encourage him to roll over. Big mistake. Now he won't stop rolling and diaper changes are nearly impossible.

Photobucket
Hug?

Photobucket
Dance...

Photobucket
...Dance!

Photobucket
"Whatcha doin' up there?"

Photobucket
Brotherly love.

Photobucket
"If I am really cute, will you get him off of me?"

Photobucket
London Bridges?

Photobucket
I spy with my little eye...

Photobucket
Contortionist. (It's not a wig, I promise!)

Photobucket
Sporting the spit-up.

Photobucket
Model pose.

Photobucket
I want that ducky!

Photobucket
"Watch closely and I'll do a magic trick."

Photobucket
"I think I can get the whole thing in!"

Photobucket
Sleeping so peacefully.

Photobucket
Uhhhh.

Photobucket
Already loves paper.

Photobucket
Om nom nom.

Photobucket
"I once caught a fish this big."

Photobucket
Brother choo-choo.

Photobucket
His seductive pose.

Photobucket
Sitting on a ball like a big person.

Photobucket
Hold on for dear life!

Photobucket
Mommy's little pear.

Photobucket
Baby in overalls!

Photobucket
Using this toy the normal way isn't as fun.

Photobucket
He learned how to pull himself up and flip out. So the swing is put away.

Photobucket
The perfect gagging toy.

Photobucket
He loves music and now he plays his own.

Photobucket
What's so funny?

Photobucket
They are starting to look so similar.

Photobucket
"Give me that pacifier, baby!"

Photobucket
He crinkles paper every chance he gets.

Edison playing in his bed. Adorable.

Here are a few more things Edison does for which I do not have a matching picture:
He...
...startles very easily. Alex taunts him through the baby monitor by roaring.
...has learned to fake cough.
...wakes up in bed so happy. Every time I need to go somewhere and I go in to wake him up, he is already awake!
...has started happily screaming. So loud and so high-pitched. And extra adorable.
...turns toward any toy. If he wants something, he is going to get it.
...is easily distracted. If he hears a tiny noise, he must stop nursing and turn to see what it was.
...has very blond eyelashes.
...can roll from his back to his tummy.
...loves sleeping with things on his face.
...hasn't figured out how to move forward. If he wants something in front of him, he rolls over instead.
...has two teeth! His two center bottom teeth came in and we didn't even know!
...loves music. It still calms him immediately.

I can't believe he is 6 months already! That went by fast. I love all of your captions for the pictures. Haha. My favorite is the one of both Alex and Edison in the high chairs.

:) I know I have said this like 10 times but I can't wait to meet the, I was going to say little, but he is getting big, guy. They really are starting to look alike though, that's cool!

Super cute! The seductive pose made me laugh out loud.

Edison reminds me a lot of Sam as a baby. His nickname was "fat little German boy." You're welcome, Sam.

So you probably hear this all the time, but I think that Alex resembles more of your side and Edison totally is a mini-me of Sam! HA! so fun!!!! Can't believe it's been 6 months!

PS- Love that bedspread! ;)

I think Edison looks especially like Alex in the picture with Michelle. But in the picture at the top with Sam, he looks just like Sam. That probably happens everyday.

He is a growing boy. I love your posts, Emily.

Their Aunt Rachael weighed 18 lbs. at 18 months. So much for getting stressed over growth charts.
