Zach turns 1!
It's so hard to believe our baby turned one! He has been such a great addition to our family and is such an easy going and sweet little guy! He is starting to show us that he may have a little temper and raises his voice at us occasionally! :) lovely!
I was filling out his baby book and it has a line for: All the things I learned how to do this year. It really is amazing how far they come in a year. Here are just some off of the top of my head. Zach has learned to sit up, crawl, walk and run. He has learned to grab a spoon and now feed himself. He has learned to point and make us try and guess what he wants. He has learned how to say mama, dada, ni-night, hi, bye all on demand. He learned how to push his brother's buttons, and how to wrestle. He knows how to climb the stairs and is working on his jump.He has learned how to sleep through the night (mostly) and so much more. It's fun to look back and see how much they do grow and change throughout the year.
For Zach's birthday we had a low key day but he did get to go and pick out a new toy all by himself at Target. He loved the freedom of wandering the aisles. We then all went out to dinner to celebrate! A week later we celebrated 2 other neighborhood birthdays together with a block party. All Zach's friends and family were able to help us celebrate with a firetruck, ambulance, police car and pony rides! We all had a great time and Zach especially loved his cake! Present opening he could take or leave. After opening one he wanted to play with it and not move on to the next. Big brother Jackson gladly helped him finish opening :)
I'm glad the sleepless nights seem like a long time ago but the time has really gone by so fast! I'm hoping the second year goes just a little slower! Happy birthday sweet boy!!
