Happy First Birthday Zachary!

The video of Zachary's first year...

A Year Has Gone By

Well, Zachary turned one last week....let me repeat that. Zachary is a year old already!!!! I just can't believe how fast it has gone. I can remember every detail of being in the hospital the day I gave birth....how excited I was, how nervous I was, how bad I wanted Chick-Fil-A but couldn't have it until after delivery, how Mike was reading a book while I was in the pains of labor. (Yeah, ask him about that some day) And then, he was born. I can remember how beautiful he looked, how HUGE he was (10 1/2 pounds!), and how scared we were when he was taken off to the NICU for breathing problems. (Which, thank you God, turned out to be nothing serious.) His first year has been laid back, which I am very thankful for. He's just that kind of baby. He loves music already, he even got a set of bongos for his birthday. His smile is contagious, and it lights up his eyes. He is such a joy to us, Happy First Birthday Zachary!!

And now, some pictures of my Little Man:

Awww, the Birthday Boy

His Lion Cake

Cupcakes for everyone else

He did not even want to touch the cake. Yep, you heard right, HE DIDN'T EAT ANY OF HIS CAKE!!! What is wrong with the boy?

Look at his face, he's so confused. You just eat it Zachary!!

Oh well, at least he got a little messy. I know I'm biased, but boy is he cute!
