Zach turned ONE a week ago... He is so awesome. When he woke up Beaners and I sang Happy Birthday, and pretty much throughout the day we randomly broke into song.... around noon Brady got mad and said, "It's NOT Zachie's Birthday!" We didn't sing for a while after that! Zach figured out that he can smile without leaving his mouth hanging open, you know the cute baby smile, and he even mastered batting his eyelashes!
You should have seen him go after his cake! It took one touch and he knew he loved it, dove in face first to get a good bite! I have never seen a kid love his first cake like that before! It was great! He sort of knew how to open his presents, with help from the big kids!
As a requirement it seems, I will let you all know the great things Z can do as a ONE year old....
Say; mama, dada, braa braa. Cheese smile on demand, feed himself (haha), cry on demand- as in throw fits , sleep all night, wrestle with B, play baseball, really! throw and kick balls, eat bubbles and bars of soap, almost run, ride a bike, push cars and make the appropriate sounds, play on his own and be happy about it, find any toilet in any house, take from B, pull hair, stick out his tongue, disappear (not going into details), laugh really hard, mimic this terriable monkey he got from his Great Gma L, and give kisses. There are more but these are the things he enjoys! WE LOVE YOU Z!!!
