Simon: making what I call his “squidgy face”

Simon spent a good deal of his day playing outside in the sun–coated in many reapplications of sunscreen, of course–with the hose, sprinkler, and a little pool at his Nana’s house. No nap + lots of sun and running around = tired and stubborn toddler. So, when we got home, Jeramy and I tried to engage him in some downtime with toys, air conditioning, and a picnic dinner in the living room. It helped a little bit, but the sassy attitude kept recurring, bringing this facial expression with it. After a good night of sleep he should be a bit less of a cranky-pants.
