Camera Face

This week Dylan, our sweet beautiful precious boy, he... wait for it... slept for over 12 consecutive hours. Consecutively. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-12.5. In a row. The bad news, it was not the weekend and I was up and working well before Dylan greeted the day. He also had 1 super-nap each of the last 4 days however today we found out what happens when he kinda needed the morning nap and fell asleep in the mall just before lunch, went back to bed late in the afternoon and then was woken up 20 minutes later by poop. That is one thing I want to know; when do babies bodies stop waking them up to drop a load? Because it is getting old. The sleep thing is awesome. Dylan is an awesome sleeper.

Dylan also cracks us up. He's becoming funny and when he sees our reaction he hams it up. When he sees the camera he also hams it up. Bigtime. Behold, more camera face:

How does he know to do that when he doesn't even really realize what the camera is? He's never looked at a photo, no matter how many times Grandma tries to get him to watch her digital frame with her. He will not give that thing a glance and when he walks up to it like he sees something interesting it's actually the phone he's grabbing off the cradle to hold up to his ear for the next 10 minutes. Cracks me up every time.

Dylan goes outside every day because his Nanny knows just how much he loves it. If he hasn't been outside and you step out the back door to put out some garbage or let the dog out he will scream, push on the locked screen door, turn red-faced and collapse on the floor. We've been very lucky to have these spring-like temperatures this November and Dylan hasn't missed many days walking around the yard, picking up every single twig and leaf. I'm not sure what he'll do when it actually gets too cold to go out with bare hands. Mittens make his hands unusable and gloves are hard to find for hands this little. Does the baby clothing industry think that kids this little will not be going out to play during the winter? Or that they will go out and not use their fingers for anything? The gloves that we do have were brought back from Saudi Arabia by Dylan's Grandfather and while they are a layer of fabric, they are like those little knit magic mittens and don't offer the warmth that a lined ski glove would. Clearly, I have some more shopping to do.

He has such a nice smile here. Expecially since he should be sleeping but decided that he only needed 45 minutes instead of the usual 2 hours. This was the beginning of the end of the morning nap.
