6 Trips Around the Sun!

Today marks Z's 6th trip around the sun and at school today he took his birthday walk which symbolizes this journey.  What an amazing transformation he has made over the past year, he is so much more comfortable at school, so much more expressive and has grown 4 inches!!!  I am so proud of my baby and got a little teary this morning as I thought of how fast this time has gone.  Tomorrow we will celebrate again with his Angry Bird Bounce Party ;)  I will share that fun on Friday.  For now, let me tell you a little bit about Mr. Z and what he is into now.
-Z loves LEGOS.  If the present shakes and sounds like hundreds of pieces, he is PSYCHED.  He loves Ninjago, Star Wars, City, Dino and just building his own things.  He is getting a super hero set tomorrow :)

-Z loves nature.  He is all about being outdoors and loves to identify plants and animals.....especially birds. His brain is much better than mine at retaining information.

-Z is such a kind and caring boy.  He is always looking out for his sister (well when not teasing and torturing her) and is so good about helping her when she needs it.  He cheered the loudest when she went pee pee on the potty last night for the first time and today he introduced her to everyone on the playground, he is always thinking of her!
-Z is always on the lookout for magical things.  He LOVES building fairy houses and is always observing things in nature that most people would miss.  He has such a passion and curiosity that I hope he holds onto.  The world is filled with wonder and Z is one to remind you of that fact.

-Z is a snuggle bunny.  He loves to snuggle with his momma and is often grumpy if we miss "Morning Snuggle" in the morning.  He is big on routine, loves the comfort of home and often needs to be pushed when he is faced with the unknown.  He is so much like his mom and dad and we are so blessed to have such a special soul as our son!
Z's Birthday Breakfast with plain cupcakes (no frosting for Z)!
This year we started the four gift rule that is very popular on the web.  The four gifts are something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read.  He also got a gift from his sister and a gift I made....so he ended up with 6 :)  It worked out very well and we plan to do this from now on.

We love you Z!!!!  Happy Birthday :)
