Zach's Special Day

Well the big boy is 6 today! Hard to believe that much time has passed since the little guy with the caterpillars over his eyes made his entrance into my heart!! We had a simply wonderful day yesterday with Sue and her kids at Chuckie Cheese. I got some wonderful pictures and would love to share some with you, however in a moment of pure stupidity, I accidentally deleted ALL the pictures from my camera!!!! I could have cried, and almost did, but as Sue said, "the day was so incredible that the memories will not be forgotten." How long do you think it took for her to come up with that "feel better" line?? Doesn't matter...it worked. So instead, I will show you a few pictures of Zach's life. Since it has only been 6 years, it will not take long :)



Here he is in his "spinner". He would start spinning in this thing so fast that his head would lean way to one side. This is not what the contraption was meant for, and many times I would have to lock it so it could not spin, as I was afraid he would hurt himself. He still loves to spin!! (Note the caterpillars)












In the next set of pictures, Zach is enjoying his dinner and then a bath and tooth brushing in the sink. He was always terrified of the big bathtub and had a bath in the kitchen sink til he could not fit. He then went to the shower and in only the last year has been ok in the big tub.








Halloween as a color crayon and what a big boy! He is certainly no baby anymore.












My favorite picture was taken just recently. I can not show it because Zach would grow up with a complex and blame me for it as an adult! It shows NOTHING and is totally appropriate, but he would be embarrassed. His Grandma has a copy on her frig and he made her promise not to show it to anyone! (even though it is an 8x10 on the frig) It is a picture of how you will find Zach any day of the week. He is sitting on his throne in the bathroom, game boy in hand! So instead of embarrassing him with that picture, I will embarrass him with this one....he was so upset his sister got to wear hair ties, he wanted one too!
Here is the one picture I have from yesterday, only because I could re-take it. Sue made him a beautiful pillow to go with the quilt I made him last year. Note, he still has those caterpillers!
Doesn't he look so grown up??? I am very proud to be his "Mama". He makes life fun and shows me everyday, the miracle of a child's heart. Happy Birthday Zachary!!!!!

Happy Birthday!

Back in the days before digital cameras (that dates me) I took pictures of our great camping trip with friends only to discover a few weeks later that there was no film in the camera.

Such a cute little guy! He sure is lucky to have you and your husband take him into your lives and hearts. What a difference his life would have been if you hadn't done that. You certainly are a special person Bren!!
