“SIANNA has been a sweet twinkle star from birth.”

This is how Carren Flanagan, mother of this year’s Front Page Christmas Baby winner, Sianna-Winter Naidoo, describes her and her partner, Vichalan Naidoo’s, first born.

“Sianna is definitely daddy’s girl . . . I sometimes feel jealous when she pays no attention to me and gives cuddles and kisses to her daddy,” Flanagan said.

The family will be spending Sianna’s first Christmas at home in Charlo, together with her grandparents, who will certainly shower Sianna with Christmas presents. Some other gifts she will receive in her stocking will be her first bible story, a tea set, barbie dolls, a leap frog laptop, Barney DVD collection and sing-along action songs, according to Flanagan.

She was born on May 1 this year and she started sleeping through from three months. “She never really cries unless she’s hungry or needs to get changed. Sianna loves having hot bubble baths – she enjoys playing with her ducks and splashing the water. Her father calls her a little water baby. Her routine is strictly on point,” Flanagan said.

Her favourite foods are butternut, gem squash and sweet potato. “Her favourite snacks are her teething biscuits and jogolino cereal and biscuit yoghurt. Sianna eats extremely healthily.”

Her favourite toy is her walking ring. “Sianna is a little fast and furious girl in her walker. She speeds around the house and also dances to every tune her walker plays.”

Sianna’s parents believe she will start crawling soon. “She is starting to crawl backwards, so I think very soon she will be crawling around the floor like a busy worm.”

For her parents Sianna is their “beautiful little princess.” “She has changed our lives in so many ways. Sianna wakes up every morning with a pretty big smile and then she starts ‘talking’ non-stop. My daughter is indeed a very happy baby.

“I’m very grateful for Sianna’s life; being her mother is my greatest joy. She’s healthy, happy, pleasant, adorable, cuteness overload and so humble – she’s definitely Santa’s favourite princess.”
