So up until about five minutes ago I was working on this:
Then J woke up from his nap super early, crying. When A was a baby he used to only sleep for about thirty to forty minutes at a time (do you remember that? I blogged about it about four years ago. Seriously!), so whenever J wakes up crying I get that same panicked feeling that I used to get when A did it. That “oh no he isn’t going to go back to sleep, and he is going to be fussy all afternoon” anxiety type feeling. However, J is a trooper. A bit of back patting and he flipped over and was rocking himself back to sleep in no time.
However, my concentration is now off and I missed half of the Law and Order episode. Good thing I’ve seen it about five times. I should be okay. So enough my ramblings.

First put together your “mat”
Then just start adding squares. We started with the standard square as a back drop:
And then I let A pick square sizes and where he wanted to put them:
And here’s the framed edition:
