Happy 1st Birthday to my baby girl!

How crazy is that!? Sienna turned one on August 12th, 2009. I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by. Sienna has been such a fun baby. She's been an amazing sleeper, she has such a sweet personality & loves to giggle. She is very sweet-natured and has really gone easy on us, so I'm worried about what kind of toddler she will be! :)
She's not much of a cuddler, but makes up for it in spunk and personality. She is such a busy girl, I swear she never sits still. Sienna has brought such incredible joy into our lives. It's definitely been a whirlwind and a crash-course in parenting, but I am so grateful for the things I have learned in the process.

On Sienna's actual birthday we took one of my patient's to a Bee's game for our "Make-A-Wish" program. It was a great game and she was a trooper. The Bee's won and the firework show was one of the best I've seen.
Sienna is turning into such a daddy's girl. She can't get enough of him.

Watching her first fireworks. I love the look on her face.

The Saturday after her birthday we had a little party with mostly family (and a few close friends). It was suppose to be a Summer Splash Bday party, but the weather didn't really cooperate. It rained all morning, but then the sun came out just before the party. We BBQ'd and had cupcakes for dessert.

We of course had to have a few token pictures of Sienna going to town on her birthday "cake" (I took the easy road and just gave her a cupcake). She didn't really know what to do with it at first, but as you can see she soon figured it out and loved it. We had to hose her down afterward, so she kind of looks like a rugrat in the rest of the pictures. (I wasn't smart enough to think of opening gifts before devouring the cupcake!)

Thanks to everyone who came and for spoiling my little girl! She got hooked up with such great giftsLove those eyelashes!
This micky mouse ride-a-long toy is from her Grandma and Grandpa Hanson. She can't get enough of it and can't wait until she can ride on it all by herself! Of course she was just as happy with the packaging as she was the gifts! She also had plenty of friends to "help" her open her presents! (Espcially her cousin Cassie!)
Get after it, girl! (Sorry to whoever left with bitemarks in their flipflops!) Her Uncle Rob gave her Grover and she's definitely a fan!

Sad that this is the only picture I got of Dan!
