My Mother-in-law threw Sienna a party for everyone in the family to meet her at once, since it was impossible for us to visit everyone separately during our short visit
I felt silly and a bit crazy...but I was particular about who held her at the party... I just really didn't want her passed around, there were so many people there and I was squirming every time someone new got a hold of her.
besides our families, the whole block was also there and nothing against the nice neighbors but how do I know if you're sick, if you've had a few drinks, if you're clumsy...If I don't know you THAT well I don't really trust you with my baby...harsh? crazy? perhaps, but that's my mama bear instincts talking.
Her Grandma got her this adorable outfit for the party
and it happened to match the dress I wore almost exactly
This was also the day Sienna started to sit up on her own and said her first word!
My best friend since the 3rd grade and one of her girls
It was a lovely party,
we ended up with a ton of very unexpected gifts that we had to return most of due to the lack of space in our already full suitcases...we took whatever we could, left some for my Dad to take when he visits and the large stuff such as toys had to be brought back.
