Little Man Zach

I thought I would share a few recent pictures of Zachary. I found a picture of him from Christmas rocking away on his rocking horse, and I love it! Unfortunately, the climber now likes to move the rocking horse closer to the back of the couch so he can stand up on the back of his horse and peer over at us. Joy.  Being the mother of two, soon to be three boys, I have learned to remain calm unless I see blood and lots of it! Boys will be boys...so they say.
Yesterday, Zach had his 18 month check-up. He measures right on schedule with his height, weight, etc, which is wonderful news. The only concern the Doctor had was his lack of "speech". I do believe he has the second child syndrome, and although his "speech" is almost nonexistent he always gets his point across. He is the King of Grunts and Eh's and chooses to jab his chubby fingers to whatever he wants. I am not the least bit worried. Each child is unique and I'm sure he will learn to talk when he is good and ready. Although, today he did say Da Da go. Woohoo. Just for memory sake, the Doctor was amazed that one of the words he says is cracker. Considering cracker is two syllables and tougher to say than a lot of other words. What can I say, he is a child after my own heart...his first words deal with food. Did I mention he also says cookie? 

Typically, every day after Zach's bath I put him in his crib for a bit to look at books. That way Mommy can get a few things done without worrying about little hands undoing everything. Today I peeked in his room to check on him, and here is what I found. I could eat him up! :)
 I checked on him a little bit later, and he was fast asleep. This never happens while he is looking at books,  but I'm thinking those 18 month shots played a part in this.
I do wish I could slow the hands of time down. My little guys are growing up way too fast!
