We decided to have a first birthday party for my niece before she headed back to New Zealand, even though her birthday isn’t until the end of August. Even though we FaceTime multiple times a week we still don’t get to be there in person for the majority of the big (and small) things.
I think it was special for all of us to get to celebrate with Siena. To sing to her, to cheer her on as she smashed her cupcake, to give her the gifts we so carefully picked out.
Happy Fake 1st Birthday, Siena. We love you so much.
