Sienna is 2!!


Yesterday was Sienna’s 2nd birthday! I can’t believe how time flies! We did not have a big blowout party for her (I will not feel guilty! I will not feel guilty!) but as usual, my parents bought her a cake from a chinese bakery. Can you believe they did not have Elmo but only Big Bird? Don’t these Asians know who Elmo is? Besides the fact that he is RED (considered a lucky color in the Asian community). In any case, I bought these little Elmo icing decorations at the craft store to put on there. Only 1 fit! The cake was a mixed fruit cake and while the actual cake was moist and soft and the icing wasn’t too sweet, they were really stingy with the fresh fruit! Damn recession! We bought her a Sesame Street Medical kit, little Ernie, Elmo and Cookie Monster figurines, a Little People tractor set and a Sesame Street coloring book and crayons (washable!) Yves has a cute video he took , see his blog here. My parents told me they were going to get her a tricycle but came back with a bigger bike with training wheels! I am not sure how fast she will learn to ride. We still have to get her a helmet. She was really excited for the bicycle!

Where’s the fruit?
Her face is red from Elmo
My parents bought her a singing dogs birthday card that Sienna kept playing over and over again. Gee, thanks Mom and Dad!

Excited for her bike!
We have to put air in the tires! Man, I am so not ready for this!

    i don’t think that she’ll pick it up too fast. She’s going to want us to push her around though….

    Hey, at least she won’t be afraid of a two-wheel bike when she’d older like some kids are…she’ll already be an old pro!

    It seems she was just one year old not long ago !! Where does the time go ?? The cake looks delicious and you did a good job finding Elmo a spot on it..Sienna would certainly be asking for her favorite character !!
