Edison's 1 Year stats
Better late than never, right? Edison celebrated his first birthday on August 10th and had his checkup shortly thereafter. The results...drumroll please...He weighed in at 23 pounds, 15 ounces - making him the lightest of my three at this age. He was 31 and 1/4 inches tall, and his head was a whopping 19 inches in circumference - to fit all that brain matter, of course. He had six teeth and wasn't walking yet (and even now at 13 months, both of these statements hold true). In the days following his birthday he began to sign the words "more," "food," and "all done." Occasionally he says something that resembles daddy and mommy, but I am not 100% certain that he is using them to name his father or I yet. He blows kisses when prompted and shakes his head often because it makes people laugh when they think he is telling them no. Edison finds his big brother, Emmett, to be the most hysterical and entertaining thing in existence. They have a special bond that many people have noticed. I am so thankful for the love and joy our little guy brings to our family.
