Zander's 1st Birthday Party

 So we had a real hard time picking which pictures to post, becauseZander has discovered the cheese face.  Every picture we took he gave us such a wonderful smile it made it hard to pick our favorites.  From these pictures you could never tell that at the start of the party Zander thought we where having a home invasion.  He soon realized that he knew everyone and they all brought wonderful gifts for him.  The tears stopped and the smiles came out.

    NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER get a smash cake with blue frosting.  These are the words I wish some one would have spoke to me before I bought the cake.  O well Zander loved it and and his dad was there to clean up before it got too bad.

 Well it did take awhile for us to get this up to date but I think we got it done, now if I can just find the time to keep up on it.  We have made through the year and have had so many wonderful adventures and learning experiences.  Zander is a walking, talking, teething, cat tackling little man who never fails to amaze us.  I always heard parents say they never thought they could love something so much until they had children and now I know exactly what they all meant.  We love you beyond words little man.  Love your wonderful dad and your amazing, beautiful, and loving mom.

   I have no idea why Z is so in love with himself.  Haha

One Big Year

        So we were hoping for a wonderful 1st Birthday for our little moose, but the day did not go as planned.  We had to take little man to the doc and found out that he had a double ear infection and a throat infection.  As you can see in the video he does not let things slow him down.  I hope you get the full feel of Zander's Birthday dance.  We love you baby moose and cannot wait to see what this new year has to hold.

I Getting there, promise!

At month 7 Zander decided he was not messing around anymore. From the beginning of Aug. thru the end of Sept. Zander cut 6 teeth and started crawling.  Around Thanksgiving he took his first steps and started cutting more teeth.  Once this little guy puts his mind to something he gets it done and quick.  Months 7 thru 12 went so fast they all kind of mash together.  This house in non stop, gogogogogogo.  It is sad to think that our baby has grown so fast but to see what he has accomplished is amazing.

Half Way There

At the half way marker Zander, Cody and I celebrating with cake and fireworks.  Zander thought the fireworks were okay but the cake was the topper of his hole day.

Way Behind

           So I know I should be posting something about Zander's 1st birthday but I wanted to bring things up to date first.  We welcomed Zander into this world Jan. 4th, 2010 at 6:56pm.  The first few months were hard but we marched thru.  When I went back to work my wonderful mother in law watched Zander for us.  Knowing that he was in good hands made it a little easier to go to work but I found myself crying the whole way everyday in had to go in.  When Zander turned 6 months I got to finally say I was a stay at home mom.  Cody told me if I could make things work he would love for me to be at home.  So I made things work, we just don't tell Cody how I got things paid off LOL.
