Introducing Edward James Barton

...born May 3, 2008 at 6:32 pm. He weighs 7 lbs even, and is 20 inches long. More photos are sure to come, but now that we are home, but we just wanted to get a few up for those that haven't had a chance to experience lil' Eddie's cuteness in person yet.























The early consensus seems to be he looks like me, especially his eyes. I'll have to try and track down some good comparison shots of me as a baby.

Swimming in his first little outfit.























Between his daddy and his Grandpa, I think he is already getting used to being photographed.

Mommy helping some of those uncomfortable burps out. He was actually quite content in this position.

What can we say, Kristen and I never thought we would be able to make something so perfect.

He's adorable for sure. Josh has been asking to see pictures. When I showed him "baby Eddie", he said very seriously "I call him Edward." I guess he's not ready for nicknames yet.

...and I do think that he looks like Landon, especially in those last two. We'll see how much they still do once Eddie gets out of newborn stage (I know, heaven forbid he grows up, they do WAY too fast!!) I think it's the eyes...must be Barton eyes!

He is so precious! I am so excited that you finally have him here and are home. I hope that you are recovering well, and I definitely want to come and see him soon!

Congrats!! He is so cute!

I told Dave this already, but it looks like the first "coming attraction" of the season is a blockbuster. Now just sit back and watch it rake in the dough. I certainly smell sequel (although right now you are probably smelling something else).

So cute.

He is BEAUTIFUL! After you called, I thought I would just get back to you online, but then you weren't online, so I thought he might have decided to come a bit early. CONGRATULATIONS! When you guys are up for a little visit, let us know!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! How cute is he?!?!? TOTALLY! What a picture perfect little guy! I hope you are feeling well and catching up on some sleep whenever (if ever) possible. You will be great parents!!!

Yay, Krissy! He's adorable for sure. It looks like my crazy dream about him being a super huge baby girl was just a dream after all. I'm so happy for you all. I hope I can come visit soon!

Krista said...

Kristen your baby is ADORABLE and I actually think he looks like MY baby. Not like you. Only my baby is a girl so I hope I am not giving him (or her) any complexes by saying so. Oh wait I just re-read that first sentence and realized that I was basically telling you that my baby is adorable. Never mind. Anyway I LOVED your list of 10 dreams and thought it was hilarious that you kept dreaming of diaper disasters BEFORE the baby was even born! I have to say even though I just had my second, I'd already forgotten about the diaper problems from the first. I was like, "What? What's wrong with these diapers???" Just newborns I guess! I hope you are having fun with your cute little one and if you need someone to call while you are breastfeeding at 3 a.m., you can call me because I am doing the same.
