milestone birthdays

20141109-IMG_4928 it seems like we have a lot of friends celebrating their first birthdays this year.  in just the last couple of months, baby isabelle, baby jeffrey, and baby lucas turned one.  and today, we went to baby keira’s birthday party.  daddy and i went first because mommy and sienna were at cousin caitlyn’s cheer showcase.  sienna was so excited to see all those girls with sparkly uniforms flip, tumble, and fly through the air.  she says that she can’t wait to “do that”.   i guess she really couldn’t wait because she did a forward roll onto the mat in between performances.  mommy is really hoping that sienna doesn’t get into competitive cheer because mommy cannot hang with the perfect hair, makeup, and nails that those cheers moms have, even when they’re wearing yoga pants and team t-shirts.

20141109-IMG_4944after keira’s party, sienna took a quick nap, and then we were off to another milestone birthday celebration.  uncle jamie is 40!  that is SO OLD.  we went out for hot pot at little sheep.  we love that place, but mostly we love hanging out with cousin zoey.

hugs to keira for turning the big ONE, and a big FOUR-O fist bump to uncle jamie!
