We celebrated Zachary's 1st birthday on February 1st, and it was so much fun. I cannot believe how spoiled this little guy is. Both mine and Curtis' family were so generous with the gifts they gave him. He got tons of clothes (mostly from Curtis and me), stuffed animals, puzzles, balls, cars, a coat from Curtis' parents that he has needed for a long time, and so much more!!!
I think the best part about his birthday was watching him "not" eat his cake. Anyone who knows us really well knows that Zachary has had a lot of eating problems since he was born. This kid basically hates to eat. I know, I know, you are probably thinking "who hates to eat"? The answer to that is Zachary. There have been many times when he has cried and cried and cried when we have fed him. He has had really bad acid reflux since he was born, so eating time has never been fun for him or the person feeding him. So, we were kind of hesitant to get him a cake for his birthday because we knew he probably wouldn't eat it anyway, but it was his birthday and we decided he did need a cake. When cake time came, we took off all of his clothes, put a blanket on the floor, and gave him a piece of cake and............he didn't eat it. As you can see in the pictures, he really just played in it. Not one bite went into his mouth, but it was fun to watch him anyway.
I cannot believe he has already been with us a year. It has been a very difficult year with his eating problems, but I would not trade him for anything. I love him with all of my heart and he is a beautiful boy!
