Happy 16th Birthday Zach!!
Wow! How can it be that my first child is 16?! I know I say that with each birthday, but it truly boggles my mind that my little baby is 16.
Over the last few months I have seen a maturing in a way that really warms a mother's heart. He's funny (he has a sense of humour like his father!!), he's smart, he can recall facts about things (another thing just like his father!) that you marvel that he knows.
He's trying to be nicer to his siblings, although not as much as I would like. He tells me it's his job as the older brother to tease and torment the younger ones! He loves that he is about 6 or 7 inches taller than me and loves to pat me on my head...."little mommy!" he says.
He's affectionate with us, his grandparents and his dog. What a lovely young man he has become!
Have a very happy birthday Zach! May all that you are wishing for come true for you!!
