More Connor

I have been accused of not taking enough pictures of Connor. In fact, it has been suggested that I take one every day, centered at the same place, so we can do a time-warp online to watch him grow up. And here I thought I was overloading everyone already.... OK, I know I have no life anymore except for taking care of my 6-week old (tomorrow), but I'm not sure if I can manage pictures everyday....

In any case, he has grown ALOT in the last couple of weeks. So, here are some pictures. You can see from this first series that he is a wiggly worm! He is so active now, kicking his legs, moving his arms, getting buff so he can start crawling... He's still a REALLY good baby -- hardly ever cries unless something is wrong. (I'm knocking on wood hoping that doesn't change). Although, I will admit that I'm exhausted... since he's been sick, his whole schedule is thrown off and he eats twice as often (and half as much). If he doesn't get better by Monday, we may go in to the doctor again, since that is past the 10 day mark... (10 days was yesterday).


He has so many cute expressions, it's hard to capture them all. But here is one of them. Can anyone guess what color his eyes are going to be? Still hard to tell....


And another... (I love when he poses with his fist on his chin!)


This is as close to his "poop face" as I have been able to capture, but not quite it... It's so funny to see in person. He gets this expression that says "Well, there I've done it" and he kind of stares past you. So cute!


He's ready to get changed.... See how snuggly the jeans fit him now? Two weeks ago when we went to the zoo with all the Edwards cousins, he was swimming in the jeans! He's grown so much!


Mostly, though, I took this picture to document that yes, he does wear something besides pajamas all the time. Actually, it's a good thing I dressed him up today to go out and about, because it turns out I forgot about a baby shower that my visiting teacher put on for me. (yes, it's a little late since the baby is already here -- we just turned it into a diaper shower instead...). Anyway, Roxanne called at 3:15 and said "We've started your party without you!" I said "what party?"... oops! I got there ~half hour late.... It was really nice of the ladies in the ward to do that for me...

Here's Connor and Ron after Ron got home from work. Connor is getting burped while I finish dinner. Notice he holds his head up by himself now. He started lifting his head within an hour of being born, and he's been holding it steady for a couple of weeks already. It's not even floppy anymore. Just the occasional "head butt". (he's so strong!)


So, there's the latest pictures. Not sure I can post every day, but I'll try to be more frequent...
