Zach is "ONE"...where has the time gone????

It's hard to believe that little Zachary is already one years old. I remember Ali coming screaming out of the bathroom that she was pregnant....and now here we are almost 2 years later....crazy!!!
The kids had a birthday party for their friend Ethan Jones on Saturday and it was a Tai Kwan Do party....thus the headbands. Aren't they just so cute? I just love those little faces.....
What's a party without a few balloons?
The very happy smiling birthday half his birthday suit here.

Notice his little teeth in this picture with his mommy. Those teeth just make him so grown up. Him growing up is so bitter/sweet.
He is pretty much just walking now. Here he is strutting his stuff around the house. He was so proud of himself and what he could do.
I call Zach "little man" and so that's what I had put on the cake.....Little Man is 1.
Ali bought him this adorable birthday hat and he wanted no part of it.
Heather had to help him blow out the candles so mommy could get a picture. How cute is that smiling face????
So, we did the traditional ....put them in the highchair with a piece of cake to devour....well, Zach just very carefully dipped one finger in and licked off the devouring on his part at all.
Heather tried to encourage him by putting his face closer to the cake....that's where the blue icing got on his cheek....but nope....just the one finger scoop was all he was into.

Then, it was time for presents. I found these cute little cars that I got him, but didn't want to wrap them. So, I just stuck them down to the top of his presents. He saw the cars, ripped it off, and could have cared less about the presents....ha ha ha. He just wanted to play with his new cars.
So, the kids opened his presents for him. They didn't mind one bit.
You can see here that he isn't even interested in the opening process.
Until what's inside starts coming out. Then he wants to check it out. Ali said he loves to go into the library of the preschool and just sit and look at books. So, he got lots of fun new books to look at.....and feel.
Erick liked the toys too. We got him a see-n-say, and when you pull the lever sometimes it sings Old McDonald had a farm. When it does that, Zach will sit and do a little dance to it. It was the cutest thing. He really does love music too.
Trying to figure out how Erick got it to sing......I sure do love this little boy and just couldn't imagine life without him in it!!!!!
Happy Birthday to you sweet little Zachary. Grandma sure does love you!!!
