Edison had his 1st bath today with the help of his sisters. His umbilical cord fell off on Tuesday (15 days old). He is doing well and we hope he is finally growing accustomed to night sleeping and will no longer be nocturnal. He is pretty laid back during the day but gets a little fussy at night. He weighed 8lbs 14oz at his 2 week checkup (up 1lb 6 oz from his birth weight). The girls really seem to like him. Today Violet said, "I like this baby you brought home for me". Below are some pictures of Edison's first bath and pictures of Daddy getting a bath when he was a baby. We think Edison looks just like Nate.
Edison does not do "tummy time". I know that many babies don't like tummy time and fuss when placed on their stomachs but in Edison's case, he refuses. I was keeping track of how many times he has rolled from stomach to back but today we reached 14 and I decided to stop counting. Here is a video of him rolling over.

I know, I have a lot of catching up to do. I am going to try and post all the events that I missed in the order they occurred. This first post dates back to Thanksgiving weekend when we attended the tree lighting on Monument Circle.
This was our second year and we didn't have nearly as much fun this time. We arrived late (because of the tiny window between nursing Edison) and fought a crowd. Nate dropped us off and parked by Omalia's which is a considerable distance from the circle. I stood at our meeting spot without a cell phone concerned by the length of time it was taking for him to find us. Finally he arrived and we fought our way into the crowd before we decided to park it and wait. Nate went and bought two slices of Giorgio's pepperoni pizza and we ate it while we waited for the tree to light. The girls missed out on any fun giveaways (like the inflatable candy canes) and we were in the wrong place for the fireworks. Next year we will probably watch it on TV and visit the circle on a less busy night to look at lights.

Someday I will include more narrative but during this sleepy time pictures are about all I can handle.
Vi happy to hold Edison
