OMG Zac is TWO!!!

I know this post is a few days late, but I have been fighting with internet and computers.
Um, people? Zackary is two. Hard it believe, right? But, apparently, it's true. Weird, since I'm pretty sure I gave birth to him, like, last week.
I am now mom to a 2 year old and a 3 year old. Wowzers.

Anyhow, we had a party for him the day before his birthday! Complete with CAR CAKE!
Here are the three 20th kids enjoying their bagels at the party!
(Zac, age 2 - duh. Shyla, age 19 months. Lilly, 2 months shy of 4!)


And... cake time!

This looks like he was screaming, and he WAS... but a fun laughing scream. This kid had a blast!
Brother/sister hugs!

Suzanne was nice enough to attempt to get a picture of me with my birthday boy! This one turned out pretty good...

But THIS one is my absolute favorite!

Two is such a wonderful age! Zac didn't really know it was his birthday ahead of time, but he really knew that HE was in the spotlight that day. Which makes my heart very happy.

A few other odds and ends about Zac, at age two -

He is learning more and more words. Every day he surprises me.
He still loves his blankie. And when he has his blankie, he sucks his thumb.
He loves trucks, cars, busses, and dinosaurs.
He is not too cool to wear his sister's headbands, tiaras, or high heels.
He loves his mommy (Lilly was always more of a daddy's girl).
He loves fruit, and only barely tolerates veggies (again, opposite of Lilly).
He shares ~ when he wants to!
He loves all books.
He goes to bed around 7 and wakes up around 6:30 or 7.
He looks darn cute in a tshirt and diaper.
He kinda wants to potty train, though I'm temped to hold off just a little longer.
He gives the very, very, very best hugs this mommy could ever ask for.

I. Am. Blessed.

In other news... Lilly had her school Christmas presentation last week as well! Try as I might, I never get a good picture of these things! But, here she is as we were getting ready to go!
Also, my cousin Miguel and his girlfriend Sofia arrived from Portugal for a month! They came over, with my aunt Sherry, on the evening after Zac's party. It was so good to see them, and I can't wait to spend more time with them this month!

I LOVE that last picture of you and Zac!

Karen said...

Sorry we missed the party but glad it was a good time, and may I say that I really like the shirt you wore that day.

Natalie said...

Is that the dress I gave Lilly for her birthday last year?!

I also can't believe Zac is two since I swear it was about 3 weeks ago that we came over to your parents house to meet him when he was like 1 week old.

Suzanne said...

It was sooo much fun! I remember going to see Zac just after he was born....time just flies by!

Your Mom said...

Denise said...
