My mischief boy

Ryan refused to take a morning nap.

Instead, he screamed in his crib for 45 minutes before I finally gave in and rescued him.

Upon entering his room I was startled to find a naked boy sitting in one corner of the crib,
and a diaper sitting in the other.


Ryan figured out how to take his diaper off? Seriously?

Despite my shock and slight annoyance, I was relieved to find no wet spots anywhere (or worse). Then, because I'm me, I decided to grab the camera. After all, this was quite a monumental moment in this boy's first year of life, and what kind of mother would I be not to capture it?

I raced to the office then back to his room, crossing my fingers the whole time that he hadn't peed.

Naturally, as I was ready to take a picture, he did just that.


He was quite pleased with himself, as if you can't tell.


Suddenly duct tape has a whole new meaning.

That face is too cute! He does look proud of himself. I can't believe he is taking his diaper off already. We just had to start using duct tape on Justin's diaper about a month ago. You sure have your hands full with that sweet boy!

Backwards sleepers in one size bigger than normal so it's not tight and lots of overalls work well, too.
