Our first attempt at getting a photo of the three kids together. Edison is screaming his head off, Flo is waving at him and saying “HI BABY EDDIE!!!!” and Amelia is just looking at her brother in wonder!
Our sweet Shelby is so protective of the newest member of our family.
The day after we brought Edison home from the hospital we had a snowstorm! We got about six inches, which is quite a lot for our neck of the woods!
(An outtake from a Monday Picture photo shoot!)
Most of the time Florence doesn’t pay any extra attention to Edison – she just treats him like he’s always been here. Once in a while, though, she slows down and just studies him. Precious!

Oh, my heart. My baby boy and my first baby girl. This might be one of my favorite pictures of Amelia – she looks so grown-up, and very proud and confident in her role as big sister to two siblings. She has been so wonderful with Edison, and I love hearing her countless (and I mean countless!) questions about him.
He’s found his thumb more than a few times over the past (almost) three weeks – I’m fine with it as long as he stops poking his eyes whenever he’s got his thumb in his mouth!
My maternal grandmother – my Momo – made this Bunad when my mom was a young girl. The embroidery is delicate and beautiful, and I am so thankful to have this Norwegian family heirloom for Amelia and Florence to wear. I believe it has been worn by my mom, me, five of my cousins and now Amelia! What a treasure.
My two guys napping together – like father like son!
Smiling in his sleep!
Real men lounge in pink bouncy seats!

Posted a day late, because of big sister Florence’s tummy bug.
We caught this guy mid-yawn! I took him to the pediatrician this morning for his 2 week checkup, and his doctor told him that he won the Breastfeeding Award of the Month! In the two weeks since he was born he did more than return to his birth weight (which is mainly what the doctors want to see) – Edison gained almost a pound! He’s my big boy – 10lbs 9.5oz!Mondays with Edison | Comment (1)
Flo’s Monday picture, posted a day late.
Florence started spitting up around 4:45p yesterday, and ended up needing anti-nausea medicine and IV fluids in the ER last night. The poor dear was such a trooper – she was able to sleep a bit while she was there and was released after about 4 hours. We are so thankful that Grandma and Grandpa were here – Grandma stayed home with me, Amelia and Edison while Grandpa went with Mark and Flo to the hospital. Flo seems to be on the mend, and has been holding down fluids and bland foods today. We are still working on getting her ketones down, as they went up to 4.1 last night on her blood ketone meter. We are ever so thankful that she appears to be on the road to recovery, and we’re continuing to pray that everyone else stays healthy!

I’ve been adding pictures to this post for a while, and thought it was about time for a post dedicated to Amelia!
I love the freedom she feels when it comes time to get dressed. Even if none of the items she chooses match, I don’t make a fuss. If she thinks she looks great, then she does! Her logic behind matching is fun to observe. She’ll say (like in the fourth picture) that both the shirt and the skirt have butterflies, so they match. Who can argue with that? I hope she keeps up her enthusiastic dressing for years to come – I am excited to see her style develop, and ready to encourage her in any way I can!Filed under General | Comment (0)
We’ve got another Monday baby! Here are two pictures – one from his birth day last week, and one from today. How is it possible that babies smell so sweet? I can’t get enough of him – I’d gladly kiss him all day long and still not get tired of that new baby smell!
Our big guy is a wonderfully amazing blessing, and we are so thankful to God for bringing him into our family!Mondays with Edison | Comments (2)
