It feels like I haven't updated in a long time and it's been a busy few months. Between the move, Thanksgiving, Zachary's 1st Birthday, Christmas, and the New Year, it's just been really crazy and I keep wanting to do an update but sometimes I just can't bring myself to do it. I figured I would just bite the bullet and catch you all up on everything that has happened.
We moved into the duplex around the 15th of November. It's not perfect but we love it so much better than our apartment and we feel a lot safer in this neighborhood. The upstairs tenant is almost never home and occasionally goes on 4-5 day business trips. He's real quiet when he IS home so it's almost like not having a neighbor. The dogs love having a yard and it's really nice not having to wait until Zachary wakes up to let them out.
November 27th was Zachary's 2nd Thanksgiving (technically) and he loved eating all the good food and seeing the family. We couldn't believe that the next day was his birthday. This is what he wore on Thanksgiving.
The next Day we went out to the store and got him his very own cake to smash. The smash part never really happened but he did love the cake. Actually, he loved the frosting and didn't really want the cake at all. My baby isn't a baby anymore, he is a toddler and growing so fast!
On December 5th, he had his 12 month appointment and everything went fantastic! Here are his stats:
Height: 2 ft 6.5 in (73.10%)
Weight:21 lbs 2 oz (45.45%)
On December 15th we went with my parents and Louis' parents to the "What Child Is This" concert by the Seattle Ensign Symphony and Chorus at Benaroya Hall. This was Zachary's first concert and he did fantastic! We never had to take him out to the hall except during the intermission to eat a snack. The concert was awesome and I heard that it was their best yet. Louis played the cello in it and he did great!
Christmas came and went really fast. It seems like one day we were putting the tree up and decorating it and the next, we were putting the tree away for next year. The whole month was kind of a blur.
Last came New Year's Day. We decided to stay home this year and play games as a family. Our neighbors let off fireworks when Midnight came around and Zachary loved listening to them. We have made some goals for the year and I know one of my personal goals is to get out more on walks with the dogs and Zachary. Who knows what this year will bring!
