Happy Birthday, Baby!

Today is/was the big birthday. (I say was, because Zachariah is already in bed for the night now.) We had a fun time and did many things. Here's what our day entailed.

1. Pancakes for breakfast. (Luckily I still had a few in the freezer when he requested them. When I make pancakes, I always make plenty extra then freeze them and pop them in the toaster. Easy.)

2. Watching almost 2 hours straight of Wonder Pets. (I bought him a video for his birthday. What was I thinking? Well, I know what I was thinking. He loves this show and we hardly catch it when it's on. He was one happy boy.)

3. Trying to leave without tantrums. (The terrible twos already? He wanted to leave, but wouldn't get ready. He wouldn't let me and threw fits. It took me 10 minutes to talk him into getting his shoes and coat on in order to leave.)

4. Trip to Toys 'R Us. (Zachariah got a birthday crown and balloon. They he got to push a little cart around the store. I let him pick out a small gift. He got a Thomas and Percy book. Then I let him play with the little train table for about 20 minutes.)

5. Lunch with Daddy. (When he got up in the morning, I asked him what he wanted to do for lunch. He wanted pizza...with Daddy...and Mommy. Ha. So that's what we did. We met Matt for pizza. Yum.)

6. Shopping with Mom. (I stopped to get a few things at the store and got him a little snack/treat he doesn't normally get.)

7. Nap. (He needed this, but didn't get enough. He kept waking up, which is unusual, but he had messy diapers. At least he got a little rest.)

8. Tutor with Mommy. (The kids had a little birthday party just for Zachariah. He got a few little toys and had more cupcakes.)

9. Home to eat a sugary snack and play in the tub for a long time. (We let him get away with a bit more today. But he's been good about it.)

10. Bed. (He was exhausted and went right to sleep. What a fun birthday.)

My baby is 2 now. (That sound you hear is my sobbing.)

I am sobbing with you. Those first two years go by much too fast. I'm getting teary thinking about my baby Henry turning ONE in four months. I just want to STOP time!!

Happy birthday little guy!! :)

Wow, what a fun day. I used to be so good about doing fun outings with Addy. It gets much harder with two to take out. Now our fun days involve watching too much Blue's Clues... But I digress. Sounds like Zach had a wonderful birthday!

You wanna hear sobbing? Try seven.

Don't think about how quickly that's going to come around.

Glad to hear it was a fun day.
