13 months old

Sometimes I find it hard to believe that our baby girl has grown this much and is now a toddler. sob sob. Sarah turned 13 months and time has flown it feels like she was born yesterday.
She is such a strong and active child. sometimes when she gets hold of something that she isn't allowed to have, to get it from her I have to use two hands.
she has such a charming personality though is scared of people.
 That is anyone besides mommy and daddy. when we are out and someone walks towards us she will run behind me while clinging onto me.
she is very talkative, says the same words, come, dada, jiji and udgy for fudgey our dog which sometimes gets fudge so confused. when he is being naughty and asked to go to his bed, as we tell him go to bed, Sarah shouts come so fudge just stands confused not knowing what whether to go or stay.

she has eight teeth, still eating mostly bottled food, though has a love affair with pringles and french fries. she does love chicken as well.
she is wearing size 12 to 18 months dresses and some 18 to 24 months. I think this all depends on the make. the last time we took her for a weigh in was in December and she weighed about 9.9kg head circumference was 46cm and she was 74cm long. she has  now moved to her room and is sleeping through the night woohoo. Loves story time before before bed, she always picks the same book- guess how much I love you.
 She loves to dance and her favourite song is lights by Ellie goulding. she always brings the ipad to me asking me to play the song. And loves to sing especially the hive song. she loves to watch the Disney channel and her favorite is mouk and she also enjoys Jake and the neverland pirates. Although I think I enjoy all the Disney junior shows way more than she does.
she is still breast feeding and will not drink juice but loves water. I'm not complaining about that .
how could I forget, she started walking at 12 months, it was such a bad day for us as a family, I will blog about that when i have the courage. but Sarah just got up and walked across the room.
she is still daddy's little girl. Last week she was fussy before bath time so when I put her in the bath she screamed pushing her head out towards Wayne's direction for him to come and when he came into the  the bathroom she stopped crying.
loves to bath, and loves the outdoors, waling about bare feet on the grass or pushing her doll pram and walker around.
Still has separation anxiety and is overwhelmed on Sundays at church as lots of people want to carry her but instead she slaps me. It's like she is mad at  me for allowing people to touch her.
Im just so gratefult to wayne, for giving me the opportunity to stay at home with her because there is nothing in the world that I could compare to the time we spend together, of watching her grow and have her firsts. Which we have been so blessed to be there when all her first happened. Daddy has been there with it too.
Sarah words can't express how much we love you and what you mean to us. Thank you for making our world perfect. That been said, this is a rare side of Sarah that we see.
