It never ceases to amaze me how quickly they grow up! Even Sydney kept saying, “I believe our Zachy baby is TWO. Who said he could grow up?” What I want to know is who let HER grow up?
My sweet boy is 24 pounds (no longer failure to thrive!) and 34 inches tall! He’s taller than both his sisters were at the same age (only 1 inch taller than Sydney but 3 inches taller than Audrey.)
Some highlights over the past year:
-When he doesn’t like something he says, “Ow! Ow! Ow!”
-He loves to play with balls! He usually has about 2 tennis balls and several rubber balls in his arms. He loves to throw them.
-Over the last year he learned to sign “more,” “please,” “thank you,” “milk,” and “help me.” He pretty much only uses “help me” and “please.”
-If he can’t find me he runs around yelling, “Mama? Mama!”
-This was the year he became obsessed with his blanket.
-He will try to sit in your lap, even if you aren’t sitting down and there is no lap. It’s awkwardly funny.
-One day he was wearing footy pjs and he insisted that Daddy put his Batman shirt over the pjs.
-At every meal he always says “Ooooo!” when the food is presented. Even if it’s just cereal.
-We were at JoAnn Fabrics and he sighed and said, “Daddy.” I replied, “Daddy?” and he goes, “Yeah, I like Daddy!”
-He calls cell phones “hello.” He will find my phone and say, “Here-ya-go! Mama’s hello.” Or he’ll say, “Me hello daddy!” I haven’t bothered to correct him yet. It’s adorable.
-He LOVES the song “Let it Go” and he asks for it every time he plays with Mama’s hello.
For his birthday party we celebrated with family and had a Cars themed birthday party! He is such a funny little guy! He woke up that morning and told Daddy that he had “pee” so when I asked if he wanted a new diaper he said, “No it’s mine!” Possessive much?
After having been through a few Sherman family parties this kid knew exactly what to do! He instantly leaned forward and tried to blow out the candle I had to keep my hand there while everyone sang to keep him from blowing out the candles prematurely. As soon as he had them out he picked up the lighter and said, “more!” So we lit them again and let him blow them out one more time.
Zachary and his amazing presents! <3
Happy birthday to my amazing little man, I love you more than words can say and I’m so grateful that I get to be your mama!
