Has it been a year already?!


Could he be any cuter?!

After a Mexican dinner at La Casita ("the pink resteraunt", my kids call it) we came home to pumpkin-carrot cake. Let me tell you it was YUM! Isaac was so cute; he clapped the whole time we sang "Happy Birthday", as soon as the candle was blown out (group effort) we let him dig in. He grabbed a handful right out of the top of the cake but wouldn't eat any until we cut his piece out and put it on his high chair tray. After cake we cleaned Zach off and opened his presents. He LOVES balls and balls are what he got; a ball popper and a Diego blow-up ball pit full of 50 of those plastic ball-pit balls (it seemed like such a good idea: he loves it but let me just tell you there are balls EVERYWHERE, ugh!) and a soccer ball tub toy from Grandma and Grandpa Perigo; I actually attached to the fridge and it's perfect there!



*height: um, opps I forgot to write that down, I'll get it from the doctor but he was in the 89%
*weight: 22.7 pounds
*eats: table food and I just got his blood tested for food allergies as well (I kid you not, he did not make a peep when he got his blood drawn he just sat there and watched the guy stick a needle in his arm - AMAZING)
*gets around by: crawling and cruising, he can crawl up stairs but screams when he looks down and realizes he's stuck. He stands briefly.
*just gave up the paci - a stuffy nose helped with that! I'm so glad I don't have to "wean" him from it
*loves: balls, mom, dad, brothers, baths, Barney, riding in the stroller or bike trailer, eating, being outside, books, "If You're Happy and You Know It"
*description: easy going, happy, seriously joyful, easy to put to bed, observant
*says: mama, dada, ball, banana, num-num (his word for food), cracker, bye, he will usually repeat what you tell him to, as well.

As with my other two boys, this boy is my pride and joy.
Happy 1st Birthday, Zacky! We love you.

Are you kidding me?! I can't believe he is one. That year went by WAY too fast. He is adorable. And I love how he was rocking out while you sang Happy Birthday to him.

Happy Birthday Isaac!

He seems so big, but he only outweighs Luke by 3 pounds, maybe it is all that height you can't remember! Happy birthday Isaac! You are one cute one year old!
