Zac's Birthday

Happy Birthday Zac!

We are celebrating Zac's 9th birthday today.
This year my husband and I decided to do family birthdays. 
Which means no parties with a bunch of same aged kid
 hyped up on sugar and running wild. 

Instead, the birthday child gets to pick out what is served at all meals and how we celebrate his or her day. 
With this in mind, today is all about 
donuts, pizza, and video games. 
Hmm, if you know my child, this sounds like his perfect day. 
I realize most of you don't so I thought a Top 5 list of 
Things to Know about Zac would be appropriate:

#1 He is my quiet child. I like to call him self entertained. Z can sit and play with any toy for hours on end. Never makes a peep.

#2 He is a lovey dove bird. The boy is all about cuddling and holding hands. However, I did hear him tell his brother this morning "No birthday hugs--I'm nine now".

#3 He is a sponge for knowledge. Like his dad he can pick up information at first exposure and he retains it. I'm thinking engineer? (fingers crossed). 

#4 He is a jokester. This child loves to play pranks, tell jokes, and just plain get under my skin. He will be the kid who thinks it's funny to irritate me. Who am I kidding, he already thinks that is funny. 

Could have been a nice picture

#5 He used to be a little butterball. The kid doesn't have an ounce of fat on him now. But the first few years of life, he had the chubbiest cheeks and roundest tummy. Adorable!

Thank you for letting me share.
I'm such a sap when their birthdays come around.

Happy Birthday Zachy Pooh Pooh!
I hope it's a good one!
