Happy Birthday, Zach!

Saturday, February 7, 2009


I can’t believe that you are 12!!!! Time has passed so quickly. Because you talked so early (10 months) we were always blown away by the things you said in your first few years. You were always cracking us up with your outlook on life…like the time you saw a squirrel walking along a power line and exclaimed, “Look, momma, a dinosaur!” How about the time you saw a roller rink with a billboard of a roller skate and proclaimed, “It’s a shoe car!” Then there was the time you asked me if Daddy had a wife! Never mind that you were talking to her! One Mother’s Day you walked into church and proclaimed, “Happy Birthday to Mothers!”
Another time in church while we were listening to the sermon, you leaned over and whispered, “Why is that man screaming at us?!” Your description of caterpillars was unique…”worms with antlers”. Or how about the time you were pondering the wonders of God with the question, “Does God toot?” But probably the statement that brings the most tears to my eyes was a conversation you had with Dad when you were a little over two…
Daddy to Zach: Am I your superhero?
Zach: Not yet, but someday you’ll grow up to be my hero!
Happy, Happy Birthday to the boy that never ceases to amaze us with his words and thoughts!
