Portrait of paternal patience

Lately, the Peanut has been a beast when he wakes up from his naps. No matter how short or how long, getting him out of his crib has been like wrestling an angry bear who's just woken up from hibernation. Except the bear would probably take the snacks and milk proffered to him and not throw them across the room. Today, Chris tried taming the savage beast with a series of techniques, including rocking in the rocking chair, a visit outside and finally cuddles on the couch. I'm hoping this is a phase, because I'm starting to wonder if two hours of peace (for me) and rest (for Peanut) is worth the resulting twenty minutes of torment (for the entire house).

How dare you. (Although I guess we should probably get used to this look, since it will be inevitable in the teen years.)

Settling down.

Now someone else needs a nap.
