Happy Birthday Zach!

Today my baby boy turns THREE...which means that he is pretty much not a baby anymore (a fact that he reminds me of daily)! I can hardly believe how quickly the past three years have gone by. It seems like just yesterday we were marveling at each of his new words and celebrating his new found ability to toddle slowly around the house...and today we can barely get him to stop talking long enough to get a word in edge wise and are constantly reminding him to walk, not run, around the house.

Although we had his official birthday party this past Saturday (blog posts with pictures to be coming soon), we decided to make today special for him by a family birthday pancake breakfast at IHOP.

Of course, that was only after the obligatory birthday morning pictures. Here is Zach's first awake moments as an official 3-year-old:
Zach is definitely NOT a morning person. He much prefers to lounge around in bed with his pajamas on and is never in a hurry to get anywhere or do anything in the morning. Thankfully the promise of pancakes was enough to get him out of bed this morning.
Allie and Daddy were pretty excited about birthday pancakes too!

Zach couldn't wait to dig in!
After breakfast, Daddy had to go to work and we had to drop Allie off at preschool. Then, Zach and I headed home where we had a "special" birthday surprise waiting: a Buzz Lightyear and Woody matchbox car! He had fun playing with his new cars until it was time to head to ECFE where he shared a special birthday cookie treat with his friends and even enjoyed having "Happy Birthday" sung to him. It was so fun to overhear him tell all the teachers that today was his birthday and listen in to his conversations with them about being three.
Happy Third Birthday, Zach! We love you and are so happy that you are a part of our family!
