Baby Girl is 9 Months

This weekend is going to be so exciting! Sara will finally be getting to meet my parents. They are currently serving as missionaries in the Chile, Osorno Mission and have been there for a year. Sara was born after they left and we thought we wouldn't get to see them for 3 years unless we made the trip down to Chile (which we are planning to do later this year). But my dad had to have surgery on Monday and apparently the doctors recommended having the surgery in the US. The operation went well and he is in recovery mode.

So Saturday morning we are flying to Utah to see them. My whole family will be together and I can't wait. My brother, his wife, and their 2 almost 3 daughters will be there along with my sister, her husband, and their 2 little girls. Sara will get to play with all of her cousins and I just know she's going to love it. She loves to play with other kids and can just sit and watch them forever. She is so inquisitive and curious, always looking around and wants to be part of all the action. She has started talking to us in the car. She'll say, 'Ah' and we say 'ah' back. It will go back and forth for quite some time. I think she is going to be saying "momma" in no time.

I feel so boring. I've been browsing around other people's blogs for a while this morning and you all are so fun and adventurous. I feel like we are just fuddy duddies sitting on our bums here in AZ. Granted, we have a few good excuses like C studying for the bar and me working full-time. But honestly, we need to get out and be more fun. We do fun things on occasion, maybe we just need to be better at documenting it. We will try to do better. I promise - we really can be fun, sometimes.

I am officially working full-time at the University of Phoenix and so far it's going great. I actually enjoy being back to work, but I sure do miss my time with little Sara. She gets so excited when I come in the door. She flails her arms and gets a huge grin on her face. I just love it! I hope she always reacts that way when she sees her momma. I am super excited to be starting my Masters in a few weeks. I've always wanted to go back to school and I'm finally doing it.

Arizona is getting hotter and hotter, but we just stay inside or go to the pool. C has been doing a great job of studying and the bar is finally in 2 weeks. I can't wait until it's over and done with. Then maybe we can have a little more fun around here!
