Our Big Boy Turns 1!

Zachary turned 1 year old on Sunday and we celebrated by eating his favorite meal ( spaghetti and turkey sausage) and having a red velvet cupcake. He was scared of the single candle that flickered on top so Mommy had to help him blow it out. We also let him open four presents which were the Kawasaki 4-wheeler, Elmo Live (which he is terrified of), his puzzle puppy, and a set of big boy Legos. Mommy and Daddy have also been getting everything ready for his big party this weekend. We are so excited to see all of his family and friends and can't wait for them to get here.

Today we also had his 1 year checkup at the doctor's office. He is officially 23.5 lbs. (55th percentile), 30 3/4 inches tall (80th percentile), and 19 inches in head circumference (90th percentile). Like I've said before, it's all those brains he gets from his Daddy. He also got three shots and had blood drawn. He was such a tough guy that he didn't even cry for any of it. One word - AMAZING! I was so prepared for the delayed scream that I was holding his hands and kissing his forhead and then he didn't even cry at all. I just stood there in amazement.

I hope this note finds you all well. Until later - Happy Tuesday!
