We tried to make the day special by starting with his favorite breakfast.Daddy came home and took Zach to a park for lunch.
We went out to dinner and then Zach got to use his birthday gift card to find the toy of his dreams (a Ninja turtle action figure and a Baby Animal Encyclopedia)
The party continues on Saturday with a family treasure hunt ending with cake and gifts.
In the morning I told Zach the story about the day he was born. I listed all the people that were there to meet him and how he was the very first grandbaby for all of his grandparents. I told him I had tears in my eyes when I first saw him because I was so happy to be holding my little boy. He loved listening. When I was tucking him in last night he told me,
"Mom, I had tears in my eyes too, when I was born."
"Oh, you did? Why?"
"Because I was so, so happy that you were my mommy."
And right then and there, my heart melted.
