1 Year

So I'm not dead.
Nor did I fall off the face of the planet.
Or get abducted by aliens.
Or even just get lost.
I'm just freakin' lazy and didn't feel like writing in this bloggy thingy. But now I is back and gots lots to say.
Aren't you just so excited?

In my last post I wrote that my reduction surgery was approved. Yay me.
March 3rd (lol I think) I got drugged up, cut up and stitched up. It was the weirdest feeling afterward let me tell ya, it was like instantly I just felt better about myself. I was no longer the freaky girl with the monster-boobs-that-could-knock-you-head-off-your-head-if-she-swung-around-fast-enough. My back pain was gone, along with about 6 pounds.
I think it was the hardest for Sarah. She was used to having a lot of soft padding to snuggle up with and for the first few days she would lay her head on my chest, then look up to make sure it was me. She'd even pat around with the confused look on her face. We both had a lot to get used to. I actually felt FLAT. Something I never thought I would ever feel. My parents were a BIG help in taking care of Sarah and helping me get around after the surgery. Now I am very happy with what I've got! :)

I just recently moved to Richland (for those of you who don't live in or know the Tri-City area, it's about 15 minutes from where I used to live with my parents). It's been a hard adjustment for Sarah, she's used to seeing her grandparent's everyday and now she sees them about once a week. But my princess is a trooper and I'm so proud of her.

Sarah started walking about 7 weeks ago. It makes me sad cause it just shows how quickly she's growing, but I'm also excited with how well she is doing. She says "Momma" very well, she calls her grandpa "Bampa" and I'm starting to think she uses the same word for Grandma as well. She gets the cutest confused face with I call my mom "Bamma". She doesn't quite understand the word "ma" can be used for someone other then me.
Sarah also has her own words for her babydoll, when she wants to eat, wants a book or if she wants her bottle. She LOVES to look at books and has quite the collection of balls. Another word she uses often.
May 17th was Sarah's 1st birthday and that weekend she had her first birthday party. It was a lot of fun to put together, but now I'm exhausted lol.
Sarah has started to get more teeth to add to the two she got at Thanksgiving. She got her top right canine tooth, then the top right middle.
I informed her she look like a dork.
Now the left side canine and middle teeth have nearly come all the way through, along with another bottom one.
I'm not sure who I feel more sorry for. Her for teething, or me for no sleep ;)

Now that Sarah has learned to walk she is ALWAYS on the go. She listening fairly well and understands what rooms she's not aloud to go in and when I tell her to stay inside if the door is open. She'll squat down right at the very edge of the doorway and wait.
She always gives me a reason to laugh everyday.

This has become Sarah's favorite way to sit, no matter where she is; in her car seat, shopping cart, stroller, couch or highchair, she always turns so she can prop her feet up. Not quite sure where she learned that one.

It still amazes me how quickly time goes by when you have a child, how quickly they grow up and how quickly they learn.
I've said it before and I'll say it many times. Everyday I am reminded of how lucky I am to have my daughter.
She is my life.
