A Utah dad has turned his baby son into a real-life Elf on the Shelf.
Alan Lawrence recently came up with idea to help celebrate the holidays by dressing up 4-month-old Rockwell as the notoriously naughty holiday character.
For the weeks leading up to Christmas, Lawrence has posed little Rockwell in various acts of holiday mischief, snapped a photo and used editing software to take himself out.

"My wife and I have never done Elf on the Shelf, but we've always been fascinated by it," Lawrence told USA TODAY Network.

Lawrence, a father of six and daddy blogger, said the idea came to him around Thanksgiving.
"A family member told me, "He's like a little elf,'" Lawrence said.
"So, we decided to make it a reality."
Now Lawrence has posted about a dozen of the playful photos on his blog and various social media accounts, including Instagram.
Rockwell has been caught shoving cookies into a VCR, throwing marshmallows at his dad, toilet-papering the Christmas tree and playing Connect 4 with Godzilla, among other infractions.
"I'm just glad he's wearing a diaper and I pray that he knows how to change them," Lawrence joked on his blog.
