Edwin @ 10 months

Edwin Alexander

Also goes by:
Mr. Wynn, sir, cutes, sweets, babes, handsome, and loves.

Currently has:
6 teeth

Likes to:
be held ALL the time,
have his teeth brushed (it always makes him giggle!),
stand and look at books,

 
press buttons on the record player,
throw tantrums,


(yes, sometimes he'll even just sit in the middle of the room and cry).


He likes to taste anything I'm eating,

and take baths.


We always thought Kate liked baths, but it turns out she just tolerates them. Edwin on the other hand CAN'T GET ENOUGH. He even loves playing with the drain while I'm in the shower. He just watches all the water go down, and he kicks and splashes beneath my feet. He gets soaked, I get a shower, and he has a blast playing in a safe place where I can see him. Also, he gets clean by association, so we both win!

Hates:
 having to wait for anything.
when Kate takes his toys away.
 getting teeth.
Well, when he turned 10 months old he was still HATING food. It was seriously like this every day:



so sad, yet so cute.

but just in this last week he has done a complete turn around! Something must have clicked and now he can't get enough. It has been such a huge blessing. Where it used to take him at least 3 days to finish just one jar of baby food, he is now going through 1-2 jars in one sitting! Serious miracle. He also loves drinking from a sippy cup.



Edwin has started to crawl on his hands and knees this past week (although he still gets around faster when he army crawls) and he's standing up on EVERYTHING, sometimes holding on with just one hand. So adventurous!

 
Just today he was holding onto a chair and as it started sliding across the kitchen floor he just walked with it. Suddenly he is all grown up!

I'm thankful for his chubby little fingers and his sweet baby softness that still keeps him snuggly.


Edwin is just such a joy to have around.


He makes our family complete, and we wouldn't have him any other way!

Ok. He is seriously so adorable! Both your kids are! I just had to tell you that. I hope school is going well!
