An Eleven monther

Whoop. One month away from being a whole year old. Yikes. How did this happen? Here is the usual Sienna Recap

Weight: 15 lbs 4 oz. She can still fit into 3-6 month clothes and has started wearing 9 month sleepers. It's a little bit funny.
New Foods: Fig newtons (thank you Aunt Donna for bringing them to California. These things have been life savers!), cooked carrots, cheese, pizza, adult cereal - as in she likes to steal bites of mine.
Interests: Pulling all the books off the book case and blankets/stuffies off a shelf. Also pulling out all her clothes from a draw as I try to put away the laundry. Likes to take lids off and put them again or open and close things. Loves stealing my glasses. Loves to open a door more and then close it, not all the way, behind her. Loves running water. Loves when Caleb comes over and they get to go exploring together. Fascinated by the fridge and always trying to play in there any chance she gets. Likes to be swung in a blanket onto the couch (sack of potatoes?) She loves the water and if the water temp was warmer, I think she could spend all day in there. Has some favorite songs: little bunny foo foo, happy and you know it, go Sienna go (diego theme song), 
Story: I was babysitting Caleb for a couple of days and at first Sienna loved having him, like never heard her laugh and talk so much. But after about day two I think she was worried he was going to be coming over for forever. She started getting a lot more possessive of me and her toys. She started stealing whatever toy Caleb had of hers and once she was banging on my old lap top and Caleb tried to have a turn, but as soon as his arm touched she would push it off. So of course naturally Caleb started pushing hers off. It was rather entertaining to watch cause I really wasn't expecting this behavior yet!

I feel like I haven't taken as many pictures as I usually do. Guess we have just been busy doing other stuff!
We have gone to the Holiday Inn waterslides in Lethbridge a few times now. We love going with friends and getting our babies all together.

I have been so excited for this moment. Little baby pigtails are so cute to me! My sister even started crying when she saw sienna cause she thought it was so cute. 

Nothing more sweet then seeing my babe cuddle with our babe.
Seriously. I love this skinny chicken legged, naked bum, girl.
My name is Luigi. I like to make the pizza.

Reading books with Daddy. It melts my heart seeing them together.

California part 3!?!

We went to California, AGAIN. My parents were driving down to visit my brother and his family and asked me to tag along. Besides the warm weather as an incentive to go, my moms sisters were coming to visit, who had never seen Sienna and who knew when they would ever get to!  The drive about killed me with Sienna, but thankfully I had my parents who took turns with her. Also, we discovered Sienna gets a little car sick as after a while of playing on the iPad (shhh don't judge, it was 20 hours in a car. You would too.) she started throwing up, lots. Anything she had ate in the last 5 hours came up. Not the most convenient thing when you still have a four hour drive ahead of you and the car seat is covered in throw up. It was a pretty stinky ride.

But once in California we had a great time! Here is our stay in pictures.

We had some fun throwing the kids around. Sienna surprisingly loved it.

Crystal was teaching Sienna how to float. At first she was unsure but then she started flipping her head back trying to float herself.

Then we hit up the beach. Oh how we love the beach! At first Sienna didn't want to touch the sand with her feet, then it progressed to just letting the sand run thru her fingers, and then it was all down hill from there and she started eating it. SHE. WOULDN'T. STOP.

One day we went to Irvine Park Railroad. It has a cute little train ride you can go on, pony rides, a playground, and a duck pond.
Trying to wave like the conductor.
Jadyn on a pony. She wanted "Trampy" to walk her around on the pony, and boy was he thrilled...

Best friends beat each other up right?

Last but not least, you can't go to California without visiting Bowl of Heaven. They are starting to expand into other states (Fingers crossed for a Canadian location someday!). Go to their webpage and find out if their is a location near you. If there isn't plan a trip to California just for it. It's seriously that good.
