  2. Oh my goodness that is just one whole lotta cute! 😀

  3. Its a good thing that little bean is so darn cute or I would be getting antsy for the next installment! Lucky for me, that little face never gets old! 🙂

  4. Am loving the dancing bean. 🙂 He is so gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my post. I am really careful about getting E. down for naps- when everything works in our house he is on a three-hour routine. He wakes up, eats, and then does something fun (like look at the gap between the wall and the fridge which got the biggest smile yet out of him the other day, le sigh), and then as SOON as I see a yawn, or after 90 minutes of awake time at the latest, I try to get him down. If he sleeps well, he gets a 90 minute or two hour nap and is then up to restart the three hours. If he only catnaps we end up on a two-hour routine.

    I definitely think you are right about the fussing, as there have been a number of occasions when he has been fussing, and I’ve left the room and BAM he’s out (this was back when he would sleep in the crib). He did it again last night after we transferred him to his crib.

    My question for you is: how much crying will you tolerate in your five minutes? Are we talking some fussing and a few squawks, or a bit of a mantra cry, or a full-on bout of screaming hysteria? Currently I pick E. up as soon as he starts to seriously cry, but now I’m wondering if I’m jumping in too soon. Would your bean work himself up into a state and then conk out, or if the crying escalated was that a sign that he needed something else?

    Thanks so much!

  5. This is fabulous! I think you should just take all of your photos on a white background so you can do an amazing flipbook of his childhood…
