Snow Day

It snowed about 5-7 inches in McKinney a little while back. Here are the pictures, as promised.

Dell Children’s Museum

Zachary and I had a chance to visit the Austin Children’s Museum last week. It was extraordinary. Zach had a wonderful time climbing, interacting with the toys and the tots. When I got him in the car about an hour and a half later he went right to sleep before I had even made my first right turn.

For some strange reason the experience made me think of Ferris Bueller saying “It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.” I highly recommend bringing your kids there. It was very choice.

New sweet pea photos

Here are a few of the photos from Zachary’s latest session. It took place about 6 weeks ago. I can’t believe how much he’s changed in that short amount of time.

Here’s what it looks like when McKinney gets over a foot of snow. Zachary had a blast, and I’m so glad we got up early and took a few shots before it all melted. Beautiful.

Happy Birthday Zachary

The Birthday Boy!

As I type this I *still* can’t believe my little sweet pea is 1 year old. Time flies by way too fast. Here are some photos from today’s festivities.

Zachary’s 10 month shoot

We don’t want to spoil all the photos we have as some of them are for Christmas. But we couldn’t resist posting a few. We are parents after all (we gotta brag!) We’re all very excited to see the fam in Baton Rouge in a few weeks. Get ready y’all… this is what’s on the way!

This was the biggest smile we could get out of him at the moment.

Lately Zach has really been enjoying eating "real" food. Last night we ordered a pizza and I didn't think he was going to ever stop eating.

Zach loves being naked (big surprise). When you go to put on his clothes he's all good until you get to the sleeves. Then the whining begins.

We've been taking him to Paradise (a little over an hour) to do some test runs for the Baton Rouge drive in December. So far, he's done great. We got him a larger baby seat Matt calls his "captain's chair" - and I'm sure he loves sitting in it.

I wished I was able to get these in time for Halloween... but our photographer was a little slower than normal. Still glad I got these though!!

I wish he could stay this age forever (ok maybe not FOREVER but you know what I mean). He's just at such a sweet age right now.

Zachary

It’s been way too long since we’ve posted anything, and I have all these awesome Z-man pic lying around. So here we go…

Photo Shoot

We got the results from our Newborn Photo Shoot and they’re awesome. I, personally, can’t stop looking at them. I’m very excited to get some prints and frames and decorate the house.

Enjoy!!

Here are some new pictures of Zachary. At his last Dr. appointment, Tuesday March 10 he weighed 9 lbs. I have no doubt that by today he is at or close to 10 lbs. His length is 19 1/2 inches and head is 15.8.

ENJOY!!

As most of you probably know by now Matt and I welcomed our first child into the world January 10, 2009 at 1:19 p.m. He was 4 lb. 12.6 oz.

It was a total surprise to us (and that’s an understatement). I was literally sitting at home getting ready to paint some birds on the nursery walls with my Mother-in-Law, Mikie. Then, less than 4 hours later, I was staring into the eyes of our son. Never in a million years did we suspect he would arrive as early as he did – 6 1/2 weeks early to be exact. He was breech and was delivered by C section, and after a very brief meeting was whisked away to the NICU. I had a rough time with it initially, but after a few days settled into the schedule of visiting Zach 2 times a day. He stayed in the NICU for 3 weeks. Everyone at the hospital was wonderful, and Zach was well taken care of.

We brought Zach home Saturday, Jan. 31. Since then Matt and I have been buried in diapers, bottles and functioning on very little sleep. All of that is normal of course – but all new to us. Despite all the fatigue we are more happy than we could have ever imagined, and Zach is amazing. Here are a few pictures taken over the past week and a half since he’s been home.

Tuesday Zach went for his 1 month checkup. He’s now 6.4 lbs., 18.3 inches high, and doing great. His “report card” from the doctor was an A+!
