Little Lady turned 3!

This is me trying to catch my now 3 year old for a photo op with her balloons. Yep, she's fast, she's 3, and she's impossible.
Notice that she is trying to hold up her 3 fingers here...Um, my baby is 3. Can I call her a baby anymore??
Probablly not.
It's heartbreaking.

After watching Adyson have her birthday a month ago and her cousin Simon have his day a few weeks ago, she was ready and sooo excited for it to be her turn.
Much to Sienna's dismay, we don't start doing friend parties here till they turn 4, but last Sunday we did have the family here to honor our little curly headed lady.

After dinner Sienna begged for present time, and she was not disappointed. Our kids are spoiled rotten, and they enjoy it, I'm sure! Sienna was so excited with each gift she would open. Even when she wasn't sure what it was she would literally squeal with delight. She's such a little doll! And I completely agree with her that present time is one of the best parts of your Birthday! ;)...


Then came cake time. Grandma Lorraine outdid herself once again with a darling Sleeping Beauty cake! Sienna was thrilled with the look of it...


and the taste of it. (Those there, are the eyes of the tiger!)


And by 7:00 out little lady was so exhausted, she fell fast asleep on the couch, just like Sleeping Beauty herself.


Her actual Birthday was Monday, and when she woke up she completely understood that this day was yet another one for her. We lunched with Daddy (The Old Grist Mill), where she dined on the biggest brownie any 3 year old could take down, bought some balloons on the way home, and she spent the day outside mastering her new bike from Grandma Linda and Grandpa Mike. (and if you look closely you will notice my favorite part of the bike, the Barbie bike that hooks on so of course, Snow White, can come for a ride too!)


As soon as Dad pulled in the driveway she was ready to open the rest of her gifts. And her favorite, I think, is the baby Adyson bought her that came with a Dr. kit. She and Adyson have spent HOURS treating this baby (Sienna usually says she has the "Croups") and have had a great time giving her pretend shots and making her cry. Should I be worried??
I think the little munchkin had a great day, and we sure love her guts! Sienna has just added such a fun element to our family. She is full of life, and ready for anything. She has a smile that will melt your heart, and I'm fairly certain she knows how to use it to get anything she wants. I can't imagine life without her, and am pretty thankful for her. We just love everything about our little lady bug!

Snow White looks like she is having a bit of a hard time riding her bike. Sienna's doing a much better job :) What a fun couple of days! Your girls are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the chat today, btw. I appreciate someone who knows exactly what I mean. Love you.

What a doll! Hey I wanted to tell you, I saw Annie Storrs last Sunday, the Storrs are good friends with Dustin's brother so we see them at family stuff. We talked about how adorable you and your kids are! We really need to get our girls together sometime when I come down!

Yes, you can still call her baby! That one of her asleep in her little skirt is just darling!
And, is Snow White drunk?

Oh my! Seeing that title just made my heart sink for a minute. 3 just seems sooo big. I don't think I'm ready for my baby to be 3 and it's coming fast. Sienna is such a doll. I'm glad she got spoiled rotten for her B-Day! Her and Cate need to go on a bike ride now.

Eileen said...

And yes you can call her your baby. I remind my 19 year old, fairly often, that he will always be my baby!
