God Bless Sienna

Two weeks ago my Mom surprised us with a visit. 
Just in time to see Sienna get baptized, I was so nervous about the whole thing being that I waited kind of long to do it, I thought Sienna would have been difficult (I even warned the Priest) The whole way to the church I kept explaining it to her telling her that a nice man is going to put water on her...she listened inquisitively.

I walked into the church with a 'lets get this over with' mind - thinking I was about to be embarrassed with Sienna telling the Priest to away and not let him come near her.


My child put on a comedy skit for everyone. We all couldn't stop laughing at what she was saying, the priest even took a moment to stop and announce it to everyone in the church.

So most of it was in Polish, except for one part so Danny would understand. This specific part the parents had to answer with "I do" after each phrase, so after maybe the 3rd one Sienna starts answering with was hilarious & I really wish I had it on video.

Then came the part with water on her head & oil on her forehead. I thought she would freak out...but she loved it...wiped her eyes and asked for the priest to do it again. We were all cracking up (picture below) So the priest did it again upon her request.

During mass she enjoyed the singing, after each song would end she would loudly say "all done! again?" I think she liked it because it was in Polish & it was new to her.

My oldest sister is her Godmother 
Danny's best friend from home is her Godfather

God Bless my little firecracker

Apple picking!

A month ago if you told me there was apple picking in Arizona I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Apples in the desert? no way.

Every  Fall since hubs & I met, we would go apple picking upstate was our little tradition, well maybe its every New Yorkers tradition- but anyway, I was always thinking how much I missed that here! So hubs turned to handy dandy Google & found us a place to go here in AZ! 

throwback - 2008

Sienna really enjoyed it! The girl must have eaten about 5 apples...those are gonna be some fun diapers to change tomorrow ha! 

Chowing down apples like its her job

Aviators for the win

Running through the orchards 

I bite your apple, you bite mine

we're back from Hawaii!

 Though it was little harder this time around with a toddler- Hawaii was every bit of paradise we remembered it to be.

We swam, hiked, ate more fish in a week than we do in a year,  met up with an IG mama friend who is lucky enough to call Hawaii her home and just hung out at the beach every day

Sienna had her first dip in the Pacific ocean. She was loving every second of the waves she thought were chasing her. One night she woke up at 3:30 off the bed...grabbed her beach bucket and started yelling "ocean!" we woke up laughing our butts off.  Funny because at first she was terrified of the ocean and didn't want to come near it. The time difference was a bit of a bummer...came early evening and she was ready to go to sleep since it was her bedtime AZ time.
