Edison's Edition (8 Months)

Weight: 19 pounds, 8 ounces
Length: 29 inches

I cannot get enough of this kid. I am obsessed with him. He stopped sleeping through the night for a few weeks, and as frustrating as it was, I had missed seeing him. After I nurse him, I always take a few minutes to cuddle him. He is only cuddly when he is about to fall asleep. When we go into his room, he is always sitting up in his crib waiting for us. He would also sit up when he was supposed to be going to sleep. So we started swaddling him again. He hadn't been swaddled since he was only a few weeks old. We had to take the bassinet attachment out of his Pack N Play because I thought he was going to topple out.

Fascinated by something (anything) at church.

Reading while on the toilet.

Photobucket
He does not like wearing shoes.

Photobucket
He loves this punch balloon. He loves all balls but this punch balloon has a strap and so it is easier to hold on to.

Photobucket
"Must have toy in mouth!"

Photobucket
Rawr! A bear!

Photobucket
The flash is too bright!

We gave him a bottle (of breastmilk) and he hated it. He just chewed instead of sucking. I ended up having to nurse him and the milk went down the drain.


Here are a few more things Edison does for which I do not have a matching picture:
He...
...used to cry when I left the room but has recently turned into a very happy child.
...babbles and squeals non stop. It is an easy way to make sure he hasn't choked to death. If he is being good, he is babbling.
...doesn't care who holds him. He loves all attention.
...is happy as long as something is in his mouth.
...is very flexible on when he eats.
...doesn't want the pacifier right after he eats.
...can put in his own pacifier, if he can find it.
...spits up just so he'll have something to play with. He will spit up and then look at it on the ground like, "How did that get there?" Then immediately digs in.
...loves keys.
...pulled himself into standing position (11/14).
...pulls himself up on anything he can, including our legs, and loves climbing over Alex (they both do it to each other and they both love it).
...has four teeth now! They are coming in as pairs (second pair came in 11/10).
...started crawling (10/28).

Edison is just so darn cute! ...except the digging in to his spit up thing... That part is gross.

I love the picture of Sam and Edison in the shade of the pool, they are both holding it the same way and look so similar!
