Can You Believe It?!

It is hard for me to believe that my little prince is now a year old. I've been looking at a lot of his pictures from the hospital lately and it seems like forever ago but then also feels like the time has gone so fast! To the right is one of the first pictures we took of him. What a cute round Davis baby face that is! And to the left we took this past Friday on his birthday. What a difference a year makes! When he came into his world he was my "little" 10lb baby boy. Now he has "beefed" up to 24 1/2lbs. Ohhhhh how I LOVE him!
We had a quiet celebration at home for his birthday with lots of little goodies for him from both sides of the family. Joe and I got Zachary a DEEEEE-LUXXXX red wagon (which he loves) and some books. We loaded up the wagon with all of his gifts and decorated the kitchen with balloons and streamers. I know that it is his 1st birthday and he is not going to remember any of it. But I want him to look back and know that his birthdays were a big deal for his
mom and dad and that we are so glad that he chose us to be his parents. Of all the gifts that he could have picked out of
the wagon he chose the books! Yeah! I've
got myself a little bookworm! Joe made Zachary a little cake which he wasn't too sure about at first but it didn't take him long to make a huge mess. I think Joe must have put about 2 inches of frosting on this thing. Zachary was so wired from all of the sugar that it took him almost 2 days to get back to normal. He loved his cake and the presents. Thanks to all the family that sent cards and gifts. WE LOVE YOU ZACHARY!
