It was Sienna's party today and family and friends were invited round to celebrate.
I'd checked what she wanted for her birthday a few weeks ago and the options were money for her piggy bank, money so they could buy her something, a present they wanted us to buy or a present they wanted us to choose ourselves. Thankfully they didn't go for the last option as I have no idea what she already has and I'd rather be asked for something specific.
They went for a present of their choice which made it easy, even more so because they'd set up a list on Amazon - who knew you could do such things? Anyway, there was a baby laptop toy on the list which we chose and the difference has gone into her money box.
Thomas bought her a lift the flap book - Sophie is a great lover of books and reads her a bedtime story every night as part of her routine which I think is really sweet. Amy bought her a cuddly toy. It's a dog. They are not dog people, they have a cat but Amy says Sienna needs converting!
Sophie's Mum had made the cake and it was brilliant. She made me laugh when she confessed 'Sienna' was the third attempt because the first two had looked like trolls. The sheep is a copy of the raggedy toy that she carries around with her wherever she goes - that's Sienna not her Granny!
The birthday girl was rather overwhelmed by the whole thing and promptly burst into tears when we all sang Happy Birthday to her. Poor Sophie, she kept apologising. I know how she feels. When Amy had her 2nd birthday party every time we opened the door she burst into tears. She then spent 2 hours telling me to "make them all go home". Kids!
