From months...to years!!

Since i didn't post on her birthday (August 24th), I thought today would be fitting since today was Sarah's due date. :) Here's some pics of Sarah's 1st Birthday celebration- take III. We had a small BBQ/pool party. 
^Could she be any more beautiful? 
(Special thanks to Paul Nixon who got some great shots! We're so lucky to have such talented friends! See Paul's page for more pics.)
^Since we call Sarah "bug", I found this cute ladybug cake design and duplicated it myself!

^And ladybug cupcakes to match :)


^ At one year Sarah weighs 21 lbs (50%), is 29 1/2 in. tall(60%) and her head is 46cm (75%)
^She knows how old she is. :) Her sleeping schedule is great at night. Down at 7pm up around 7am. Naps vary between one and two-usually 1 hour. Sarah loves books and now likes to hold and flip the pages herself. She's definitely trying to be more independent. We're getting a lot more attitude! :) She doesn't like her changing table or getting dressed. She loves splashing in the bath. She LOVES swimming at the pool. She loves songs with actions.
^ Sarah will eat whatever we eat now, she's mostly feeding herself, weening is soon to come, she doesn't seem to like cows milk much, but we're still trying. Sarah likes to have her teeth brushed. Sarah walks along furniture and with toys, but still shy about standing/walking on her own.
^Sarah points a lot. Mama, dada, hi and bye are her most frequent words. Ball, Book and Boat all kinda sound the same. :) She still loves peek-a -boo and will cover her own face with the blanket now. Waves a lot and loves an audience.  She can give "fives".
^The birthday loot! Thanks everyone!!

^Happy 1st birthday Sarah bug! We love you!! This last year has been the best! It went by too fast!

Happy Birthday Sarah! Even though it was early, we're glad we got to celebrate some of it with you. And that cake Linds?! WOW! Reminds me of my real mom! She took SO much pride in our birthday cakes and would take HOURS making them personalized to something we liked at the time. I intend on following her (and your) example - let's just hope I'm as creative when the time comes! :) She's a beautiful little 'bug' - can't wait to see you guys again!
