Siena's Korean Dol Dress (1st Birthday Celebration)

So back in October Rob was able to go to Korea for work. While he was there his co-workers learned that we had just had Siena a few months before then and before he left they were so nice and gave us this Korean Dress for Siena, when she turned 1. I went on and read about it and apparently, Dol is celebrated for the first birthday of a child. When Korea had little medicinal knowledge, many newborns would die from childhood diseases so when a child lived to be a year old during that period, it was a very joyous occasion. (this was taken straight out of wiki.....Lbh I am not that eloquent in speaking) So we decided to put Siena in the dress they gave us and send them pictures so I thought I'd share them. She is so freaking cute and I know she is my daughter but she is BEAUTIFUL....

My Baby is 1!!!!!

Happy Birthday Siena! Siena had her 1st birthday last week and we had an awesome party!! My little pumpkin is obsessed with Sesame Street. I honestly dont even remember how she first started watching it. I think it had something to do with my mom putting it on, Anyway she LOVES it to say the least. I feel like I neglect her sometimes cause if I am cleaning or needing to get ready its so easy to put it on and she is in Heaven!!! So with this LOVE of Sesame Street I thought for her first birthday we would do a Sesame Street Birthday Party! It turned out amazing and I couldn't have asked for it to go better. Here are some pics of the day!!

Guess who came to Visit?!!!

Siena was trying to share her cake with Elmo :) She is so sweet!

Mama, Daddy and the Beautiful Birthday Girl!! I made Siena's Elmo onsie and I found Rob's cookie monster shirt at Kohls and my Friend Janessa found my Oscar shirt! It fell into place perfectly!
I cant figure out how to turn this but here's a pic of the onsie
The kids take home gift was Elmo's Goldfish, Dorothy and his crayon...... "Elmo loves his goldfish, his crayon too"......

Bouncy House fun.......

Oscar's Tattoo Parlor! We had Sesame Street Tattoos.... my friend Janessa painted Oscar...She is so talented!
Katie did some face painting, here is our neighbor Layla getting a kitty face
The CAKE!! Woah this took awhile but I was so happy with how it turned out :)

Bella and Elmo... I think this was when grandma (Abu) was telling Bella it was her in the Elmo costume! I do have an amazing mama :)
Stella and Elmo
Daxton getting in the bouncy house

Birthday girl posing in the Photo op.... My friend Megan helped me outline and then I painted (into the early hours of the mornings) I am happy with how it turned out.... And I know Grover looks a little funky but it was like at 4am..... I was exhausted!

Sydney enjoying all the Candy!
Pinata time!!! This was a pull string pinata, all ths kids lined up taking turns pulling the strings when it was Claire's turn I think she grabbed like 10 strings......LOL
Cute little signs I had for the Trash cans!

We've named her "The Crazy Bag Lady" no joke she had a purse of princess underwear, a purse of princess shoes and her baby Jaguar.....She carries these with her all the time.

And Now for the Eating of the cake.....

First little nibble

"Mmmm, this is good"

And now she's into it!!! LOL

Mother's Day

The last few Mother’s days have been hard for me always wanting to be a mother and not having that…… but this year I am so happy, and grateful that I can finally have the Mother’s Day I have always wished for.

I just wanted to express my gratitude for my little princess Siena. I am so so so grateful for her and for the chance to be her mother.

I love being able to watch her grow, learn and see everything through her eyes. She is such a joy in my (and Rob’s) lives I am having a hard time expressing it in words. I still can’t believe how big she is getting. 10 months old already and I feel like I had her yesterday.

Motherhood really is the most amazing and rewarding thing and I am so thankful the Lord has blessed me with this opportunity. I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and realize how blessed you are to have those little ones (or used to be little ones) in your lives.

Rob and I took a little vacation at home this week. It was so nice to have Rob home all week! He got to spend a lot of time with Siena and she is already turning into a Daddy's Girl!! We went shopping up on Park City and took Siena to the Zoo for the first time and ate out practically every night! It was a nice relaxing week and I am sad to see it end. Here are some pics of us at the zoo.

Sitting on the Elephant trunk....(I think she wanted to get off ASAP!)

I know I am biased but she is just BEAUTIFUL!!

She LOVED the giraffes..... in Awwww
