The Little Things: August Birthdays

I am a little late on these, but Happy Birthday to Patty (8/25) and Happy 4th Birthday to Landon (8/28). We missed dinner at Chuck E Cheese, but joined every one after for cupcakes and presents. Eddie, Edison and I were lucky enough to get Landon the skateboard he had been wanting and he loved it! Hopefully he doesn’t hurt himself.

Patty and Landon (and Edison too!)

The Little Things: Outings

On Saturday night, Eddie and I had our first date night minus Edison. We celebrated the marriage of Amanda and Grant. Everything was beautiful and perfect. Katelyn and family watched Edison for us. He was a little fussy, but they enjoyed their time.

Last night we took Edison to his first Isotopes Game. At first he was not too impressed. Once he woke up, he enjoyed everything that was going on. All of Eddie’s friends loved meeting the little man.

Edison is now smiling intentionally and I finally got a picture of him. Enjoy!

The Little Things: Happy Blogaversary

First, I would like to wish my friend Samantha a very happy 30th birthday today!

Happy Blogaversary to me! One year ago today I started blogging and I am so proud of myself for sticking with it. I originally started it hoping it would become a baby blog, and that came true in November when I found out I was expecting. In July we welcomed Edison, and now I get to share all of the ups and downs with you.

The Little Things: Mommy’s Day Out and One Month Stats

On Sunday, I was able to break away for some much needed time with the girls. We celebrated Samantha’s 30th at Sandia’s pool. It was a wonderful day, and I am so glad I made it work. Edison was also an angel that night. I was really tired and he didn’t punish me. I am so lucky.

Of course, Eddie did an amazing job with Edison while I was gone. Although a little sympathy as to how hard it is would have been nice. I guess I need to stay away longer next time. While Mom’s away, the boys will play, and did they!

Eddie is brewing me a Pumpkin Spice Porter, to be ready in October. I can’t wait! I am hoping it is my favorite one yet.

A little late, but Edison had a one month weight and height check today. He is weighing in at 9.7 pounds and is 21.75 inches long. Here I am thinking he is getting so big, but he is only in the 25th percentile for length and the 17th percentile for weight. Is this really right???

The Little Things: One Month Already!?! And Only!?!

I can’t believe Edison is one month already! It has gone by so fast. It’s also hard to believe that he has been in our lives for only a month now. I can’t imagine our lives without our sweet little man.

The pediatrician’s office was really busy this week, due to school starting on Monday, so we have to wait until next week to check Edison’s stats. He has now outgrown all of his newborn clothes, but the 3 month clothes are too big.

This week we introduced Edison to a bottle and to formula. I was worried, but he did fine. The breast milk in the bottle was not a problem, except for I first gave him a fast nipple. Oooops! The formula was a little harder. He was not sure of the taste at first and made some funny faces. He eventually drank it though. Yay! Now I can play with the girls this weekend.

Here are a few of my favorite pics!

Thanks Amanda for my personalized outfit!
