Here’s some random info and pictures from the last few days. I’ve written plenty on this blog about how frustrating my eldest is, so I should also now write that we’ve been going through a period of…let’s just say it’s been more enjoyable than not. He has been especially helpful with Sydney, and she is totally enamored of him. On this particular day, he made a total mess of her room, finding all kind of things to entertain her with, and took 2 blankets to make a “dress” for her. And no, he is not wearing pants again. People, I make myself quite vulnerable and authentic for ya here. This is the real life of Brazenlilly.
Also, take note of Carson’s mane. Because it has been shorn! It was quite the drama (reverting back to “frustrating” mode), but Gma Jojo was gracious to cut it for us. When we went into the bathroom at home to look at it, he was distressed. “Oh, man,” he whined. “Now I look just like Uncle Chad!” Yes, dear, that is true. Also, please note the “get dressed” chart we had to start. This is because Carson is going through some sort of phase where every single pair of socks and shoes “HURT” him and he wants every single tag cut off of every single piece of clothing, and we were dealing with massive, earth-shattering meltdowns. Every single day. Every. Single. Day. So we started this chart and he gets a sticker for days he gets totally dressed without throwing a fit.

Also, random, Sydney was wearing this cute outfit (gift from Mimi and Tara) and I wanted to take a picture. I realized I have no good places to take pictures of an entire outfit, other than that darn green couch that is already in a million pictures. So, we tried the rocker. It kind of backfired, because Sydney would not relax her body due to the rocking motion. She was hunched over in every picture, which, humorously, makes her jacket look like one from the 80’s with huge shoulder pads. Especially in that second pic. Hee!
