I was so nervous about having a boy, and I'll be honest, it took me awhile to get used to the idea. And it took awhile for Zach to grow on me. But a couple of months ago, just after he got his haircut, I had dressed him in some jeans and a hoodie and he looked SO CUTE and I fell in love. Not like I didn't love him before, but at that point he seriously melted my heart and I love my boy!
Matt gave him his own piece of french toast the other day and Zach was beyond excited.
He picked it up and went right to work!
He's only got 2 teeth (both on bottom), so it took him awhile to bite off some pieces. (Actually now he has 3. He grew a vampire tooth! On the top right of his mouth. It's really weird. His top front teeth are not in yet, and I'm not sure why one clear over there is growing in! I'll ask the doc about it at his 1-year checkup.)
He LOVED his birthday cake, and I will post about his party later, but seriously it was so cute. He is definitely a momma's boy and loves having his mommy around and has a hard time going to other people. He has also learned to open cupboards and drawers and take everything out of them. Oh joys! He loves to scoot over to the stairs and throw his toys down the stairs. He doesn't try to go get them, he just likes to play there at the edge of the stairs. Funny! And he loves to throw things on the hardwood floor in the kitchen to hear them make a noise. His favorite is a purple frisbee.
Anyway, Happy Birthday to my little Zach-man. We love having you in our family.
