Another good question, Jazz Girl. I don't think Carlisle was expecting an out of control newborn, as he was fairly controlled and had not seen any out of control newborns. And, I think Edward probably reacted similarly to Carlisle-thinking he was evil, not wanting to hurt anyone even if it meant he had to suffer, considering killing himself. I do think Carlisle struggled with his decision to change Edward and was probably very worried that Edward would be angry or unhappy. At the same time, Carlisle was so lonely, that he was probably excited to have any company, even a companion who was angry with him. I think Edward was probably unhappy at first. He woke up, realized that his mother was dead, and his life as he knew it was over. We know that he viewed himself as a soulless monster. We know that Edward did not initially realize he could read minds and answered thoughts as though they were spoken questions. So, he probably told Carlisle exactly how he felt and Carlisle probably caught on quickly and was amazed and intrigued. Edward would then realize he was reading Carlisle's mind, and Carlisle was so caring and kind and felt awful. I think at that point, they would begin getting along very well. Edward is not unkind and would not want to hurt Carlisle, even if Edward was upset. Carlisle helped Edward adjust and, in a very real way, became a father figure for Edward. Edward is a lot like Carlisle--great self control, interest in medicine, desire to do the right thing, etc. I think this shows that Edward emulated Carlisle and respected him greatly. I wonder how Edward felt when Carlisle changed Esme. I wonder if he felt at all jealous of Carlisle's new companion and the attention that Carlisle was giving Esme. I wonder if Edward thought he no longer belonged. I don't think Edward disliked Esme at all-they obviously became very close. But I wonder if Edward felt for a few seconds like everything was changing and Carlisle no longer needed him.
