Zachary is ONE!
Man that year flew by fast!
He has 5 teeth and 1 about to poke through. He weighs 21lbs and is 29" long.
His favorite foods are bananas, noodles, and blueberries.
He can say "mama", "dada", "dog", "pepper", "hi" and "bye".
He likes to mimic you and play games with you. One game he likes to play is putting a hat on your head and then putting it on himself. He also likes to put an object in the hat and shake it until it jumps out. He's starting to dance and wiggle some when music is turned on. He received a basketball goal for his birthday and love its; he tried to climb on it the other day though. He also got a little walker/bike. He was so excited about his new found freedom he had using it to walk around the house.
He's so much more aware of his surroundings and understands patterns. For example, every day when I pick him up from daycare he starts saying "Dehdah" (pepper) over and over again. When we get home, we open the back down and he leans out, saying her name and waving. We watch Pepper run around the hard and Zachary gets a big kick out of watching her.

He is transitioning from the infant room to the toddler room at daycare and will be in the toddler room full time sometime soon. So far, he's handling the transition well. It's been a little toucgh some days because his little friend from the infant room is a month younger and is not transitioning at the same time. So, Zach is learning how to play, interact, and make friends with the bigger kids and sometimes the big kids don't understand how to play nice. We are also haveing to transition to a different nap schedule and eating big kid table food while at daycare. Yeah…lots of changes, but he's handling them well. I on the other hand, wish I could be with him all day long to fully understand what his day is like.
Zach and I have also reached our goal of breastfeeding for one year. Yeah for us! We are still nursing when we are together, and I really have no idea when we will stop.
