Sierra. Oh Sierra.
Sierra keeps me buuuuusy.She, like Alana, is busy, full of life, and completely hilarious! We had an absolute blast visiting with Nana and Papa and Uncle Shawn over the holidays, and if my birthday being 4 days before Christmas isn’t crazy enough, Sierra’s birthday is 3 days after Christmas…exactly one week after mine.
So, for her first birthday, we were in Fort Lauderdale and had a sweet little party for her. Particularly exciting was the fact that Amber Holritz had some sessions booked in the Fort Lauderdale area, and was going to document Sierra’s party to conclude Sierra’s first year of sessions with her! Oohhhhh! So exciting!
I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos here, but the full blog post and slideshow are on Amber’s blog – and crank up the volume for the slideshow song…so much fun!!!
Uncle Shawn had to leave very soon after Amber arrived, so he and Sierra were able to take a few photos together! Hooray for Uncle-Niece time!
Sweet, sweet, happy girl!
Some party details!
My beautiful, wonderful, amazing mom!
Sierra and her Aunt Pixie! Oh the adorable factor here is through the roof!
Fun games with Nana!
Sierra is, um, a well documented baby
Wonderful, wonderful Papa! It was almost as if Sierra was asking permission with this cake sitting in front of her!
She got into it
Poor Alana! Oh the patience she had to channel while watching Sierra chow down on cakeShe grabbed a bite or two after asking me oh so politely!
Oh, the video we have from these moments is insanely cute. And like I said, well documented!
But definitely still going…
She hung in there so well while sleepy, and opened some presents.
Be sure to head to Amber’s blog to see the rest of the photos and the adorable slideshow!
Amber, Amber, Amber!!! How to thank you for all of these PRICELESS captured moments??? Oh, words are so inadequate!!!
It also bears mentioning that this special blog post is my 500th!!!! It hardly seems possible that I’ve been blogging since October of 2006 and have written 500 posts, starting before either of our children existed!
