The Essential Eddie


Our Eddie Jack is six months old.

To commemorate, here are six things you should know about him.

(1) He is lucky to have lived this long


Because I am constantly tempted to eat him alive


(2) His arms never stop moving 


When I showed my mom this picture, she asked if he's ever become airborne


(3) He earns his keep


I left the broom out one morning, and while I was busy with the other kids he grabbed it from his Johnny Jumper and got to work.



Honestly, I don't know what was more amusing - The sight of him cleaning, or of the other three collapsing in giggles when we walked in and discovered him.



(4) He's tight with his cousin Mack 


Here they are at their first slumber party



Grandma Susan's moniker: Fannie Mae & Eddie Mack


(5) He's in a hurry to grow up


He refuses to lie down in his bouncy seat (like a baby), but rather insists on sitting up (like a man)


So I dress him in a lot of infantile yellow jammies. Just to keep him in his place.


(6) Last but not least

He can do this.

I LOVE all of the pictures, but my favorite is the slumber party. I started laughing out loud when I saw it. I love the mini clock on the headboard of their bed. Hilarious!

Oh my gosh, I love this kid. When I was looking at the broom picture, at first I didn't see the jumper and thought he was standing with the broom. I almost fell out of my chair.

And that picture of the slumber party?! I DIE. Those two heads are the cutest I've ever seen.

You left out one photo - the one where he's playing in the gentle surf of the Gulf shore. You know, when he decides to come live here with us. When I kidnap him.

Cannibalism. Child labor. Circus performing. You don't even have a crib for your baby. How many sins can you confess to in one post?

Seriously tho, what an adorable little guy.

Kristin said...

He is a Genius. Or a Superhero. A Superhero Genius. You guys make the most AMAZING kids. And Eddie is going to save the world, one clean floor at a time. :)
LOVE him!!!

What a cute, happy, talented little guy! I can't wait to see all those amazing kids again. Love you all! p.s. I want to click "Like" on Kristin's comment. Funny. Also, when I read 30 y.o.dad's comment I thought it was the sequel to our naming Bean series of emails ("There is no cannibalism in Ender's Game!").
