I'm not sure I could say much more than I've said before about my first-born. She turned 10 and I about cried writing about that. Then she turned 11 and we were no worse for the wear.
Now she turns 12. One lone, last year before the 'teens. Yikes! How did we get here so fast?
What I will say is...she has grown up so much in the last year.
Physically -- just take a look at the outdated pictures in my header (which were taken about a year ago) and then look at these...

Lately, I have been balancing a new kind of relationship with Sarah. I'm still the parent, of course, but we talk more and she helps more without me asking her to do so. We get an extra hour or so each night after the other kids are in bed and we read or we watch movies or we just talk. She loves to tell me about funny parts of books or movies...or the latest "Dance Moms" episode she's watched.
Happy Birthday, Sarah! I love you more than you could ever know!
