Sara's 1st Birthday

i can't believe our little sara girl is already one.  it feels like just yesterday that she and i were hanging out together in the hospital.
sara's bday was low key but sweet.  a couple days before her actual birthday we got a free birthday cupcake from barnes and noble.  i love both james and sara's wide eyes in this picture.

scott got in on the birthday cupcake, too.
and this was on her actual birthday.  we made "healthy" cupcakes that sara loved. the rest of us hated them because they didn't have enough sugar but sara thought they were the cat's meow.
she really is such a precious girl.  she loves to smile and laugh.  she loves to get chased and now that she's walking she loves to run as fast as her little legs will move her all the while squeeling with delight.  she loves to get hugs and kisses from scott and she even loves it when he wrestles her to the ground (despite my concenr).  She loves it when scott climbs into her crib every morning to play with her but she hates it when he takes toys from her.  she gets really impatient when someone close to her is eating and not sharing with her and she loves that scott shares just about everything he's eating with her.  they are the best of friends and i love watching them together.  its a bit of heaven on earth.
oh and one more thing... sara's most favorite thing to do is to climb!  she climb's everything from stairs to chairs to stools to ladders and anything else she can get her hands and feet on.  she gets really angry when i carry her up (or down) the stairs because she wants to do it herself.  this girl is the sweetest thing but she definitely has an opinion and she's not afraid to squawk at us to let it be known.
happy birthday sara p!  we love you!
