Random Post Friday!

Brayden has finally found a spot to play in peace. Because Sienna is in to absolutely everything, every morning we move a couple of pieces of furniture in order to keep Sienna fenced in the living room. Chris actually came up with this wonderful idea when Brayden was this age and he wouldn't leave the kitchen drawers wouldn't believe how many times he smashed his would have thought he would have learned by the 100th time, or so! Once again it has been a lifesaver being able to keep Sienna in a safe environment. Brayden is also enjoying the new furniture setup because it means that he has his own tiny little spot of carpet all to himself.

Sleeping Beauty
Yesterday I had to wake Sienna up from her morning nap, which never happens. She was in such a deep sleep that she didn't even stir when I opened the door (both kids are very light sleepers and usually stand right up as soon as the door opens). I ran downstairs as fast as I could to get the camera, hoping that she wouldn't wake up before I got my picture. I ended up taking several pictures and even with the very bright flash in a dark room, she didn't stir. At this point I was getting a bit worried so I started talking to her and she finally moved...whew! She must have really been tuckered out!

Sienna's Crazy, Crazy Hair
Brayden was practically bald until sometime after his 1st birthday...I had always wished that he had had more hair. Well, I've decided that it was so much easier to have a bald baby! Sienna wakes up with even crazier hair than I do! Every morning I have to practically soak her hair to get it to look somewhat normal. I thought you might like to see what I have to deal with every morning!

Sienna started drinking water out of her sippy cup this week. In the past if I wanted her to drink out of the cup (instead of chewing on it), I'd have to take the filter out. I can't even tell you how excited I am to switch her to a cup when we switch to whole milk in less than 3 months...I am so sick of washing bottles every day!!!

What an impressive Lego creation! Surely he had a little help with what looks like a camel and palm tree! If not, he's totally going to be an architect someday! Glad you were finally able to find a spot for Brayden to play by himself!

Ummm...I just noticed that we have that same shirt for Wyatt. I'm sure they'll end up wearing it to Gymboree on the same day. Won't THAT be confusing!!!

Well, Brayden MIGHT have had a little help from Chris with the camel (it was left over from the night before) but he can make the palm tree all himself and he's pretty good at making "towers" and "buildings". He's just crazy about legos!

Oh great, another look alike shirt! ;) It won't even matter if they wear it the same day...every time Wyatt wears it, I'll think that it's Brayden! haha!
