Here are some photos from Zachary’s special day.
We started the day off with a blueberry waffle for breakfast and a phone call from Aunt Amy, who called to wish Zachary a very happy birthday. Zachary loved hearing the birthday song!
After Zachary’s nap, Adrian changed the car seat to be facing forward. Zachary is tall, so his legs were starting to get a bit scrunched. We were really looking forward to making the switch at the 1 year mark. Zachary really loved having his legs dangle down, looking out at everything and playing peekaboo every time I looked back at him. He thought it was the funniest thing!
Then we went to Volunteer Park, a great park in Plantation. I do a lot of photo shoots here since there’s great light and the scenery is nice and the park equipment is in good condition. It was Zachary’s first time on the slide and only his 3rd time on the swings. The last time he was on the swings was when he was much younger, so he really enjoyed swinging now that he is big enough to appreciate it. I had so much fun pushing him in the swing and taking photos of him smiling and laughing and having a great time.
All in all we had a really wonderful day. I’m so glad we decided to go to the park for Zachary’s birthday. Even though it was hot outside (almost 90 degrees, yuck!), he had a WONDERFUL time and I felt like I was able to experience magic and happiness through his eyes. :)
I also have to say that I’m glad I was able to get some cute shots of Zachary wearing his adorable tie-dyed Converse. Those shoes are adorable but they were pretty pricey, so I was hoping I’d get a chance to take some nice photos of Zachary wearing them before he grows out of them. He still has some room left to grow, but who knows when his feet will have a growth spurt. Mommy will be very sad on the day that her baby is unable to wear those cute shoes anymore…. mainly because I know I won’t be able to drop another $50 on a new pair!! ;) LOL!
