    Also I think "Мне уже как будто бы исполнился год." sounds much better.

    "Уже как будто бы прошел год с тех пор, как я...."
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Should be переучиваться because you are not teaching somebody else, you're "teaching" yourself here.
    And it'd be better sounding if you said "Именно то, что нужно!"
    Недавно стал снова учиться играть на своей шестиструнной гитаре.

    compare:
    1. Переучиваться с семиструнной на шестиструнную гитару. (с трехколесного на двухколесный велосипед)
    2. Снова (опять) учится играть после многолетнего перерыва.

    That sentence is too Russified... I know the Russian equivalent is мне кажется, but "it seems you..." is not a good English equivalent.

    better: I believe you are already past the age of 1
    or: It seems to me that you are a little older than 1 (same ironic sense)
    or: I have a feeling that you are already past the age of 1

    Thanks, Vinnie
    And what about "You seem to be already past the age of 1"? Does this phrase also suck?

    It sucks less, but there is still some sign of suckage. It is too verbose, you could have said it much simpler:

    You seem to be older than 1

    It depends on the context, and desired tone.
