well, in a mere hour or so, the clock will turn over to November 21st, and my baby boy will officially turn from a baby to a toddler.
nevermind that he has been a toddler for a while now, walking all over the house. he is such a big boy. it is amazing to see all the changes that he’s been going through lately.
He’s definitely getting so much more mature lately. He’s getting so good at listening to his mommy, and he loves to watch his favorite shows on Sprout network – when they come on he calms down and watches intently, laughing at all the right parts. He likes Elmo and The Wiggles. He is so much fun, and so funny, and has a great sense of humor. He is learning to brush his teeth at night, and he is learning to help dress himself when I put his shirt and pants on. He is a picky eater as far as what he actually likes to eat, but he is always willing to try a new food, which I definitely appreciate. He plays so nicely with Maya (though sometimes I think he thinks he is a puppy, too). He is a complete joy! Such a good little kid, and a very sweet baby. We are truly lucky.
Tomorrow, we’re planning to give the little guy breakfast and head over to a park to have some birthday playtime. it will be a low key family day playing with our favorite boy. I’ll be sure to take some photos and I’m sure we’ll take some video too. :)
I’m not sure how I’ll feel tomorrow on his actual birthday, bittersweet for sure. Right now I am remembering how I felt last year knowing that I was going to be waking up at 4am to head to the hospital. I had such a hard time sleeping and I remember tossing and turning in my bed unable to fall asleep. It was such a long day going through induction, pitocin, and finally the c-section, but I would do it all again, and my sweet little baby was 100% worth it of course.
well, that’s it for now. tomorrow is our little boy’s first birthday.
Happy birthday, Zachary! Mommy & Daddy and Maya love you very much. :)
