Nighttime Ritual

The 5 phases of the D man when he goes to bed at night:

1) Dehydration--he drinks his little heart away and may ask for another cup of water just as he is about to go to sleep. Laying in the crib can sure make a little man thirsty.

2)The mean stare/loaded glare/stink eye--as if to tell us, "Are you kidding me? I'm not even tired. I still want to stay up and play."

3)Contemplation--thinking about whether he should throw a massive fit just so mommy and daddy can come in and let him out of his crib for a few minutes, or if he should just suck it up and go to bed.

4)Irritability--clearly it doesn't help when mommy stands around with a camera taking pictures while this poor little guy is trying to get comfortable.

5)Position--he believes that if he stands up and stares at us with his sweet little dough eyes that maybe, just maybe, we will relent and take him out

What great shots you got of your littlest man! And the decal (painting???) above his crib is AWESOME! Where did you get it? Or did you make it?
