Happy Birthday Zach!

Yesterday morning Zach climbed into bed with me and I reminded him:"Today is your last day of being four! Tomorrow you'll be five!" His lower lip began to quiver and tears welled up in his big brown eyes. "But, I like being four!" He was sure that five couldn't compare to the joys of four.

Today being a "whole hand" doesn't seem so bleak. He is feeling sick to his stomach (unfortunately, most of the family is) so we've had to scratch our plans to take cupcakes to school, but something tells me he's going to muster the energy to play like a newly-minted five-year-old.

Happy Birthday, Zach! I love you.

  1. Zach - I love you to the moon and back! I hope you have a super fantastic birthday and that you feel better soon!

    Love, Headoy! :)

  2. Happy Birthday, Zach! Maybe the tears were partly due to not feeling well. What a cutie! And Happy Thanksgiving to you guys across the pond! :) I'm thankful for you military families and the sacrifice and service that you live! xxoo

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Reese. I just realized that your kiddos probably weren't off school for our holiday. Hope you're all feeling better and he had a great birthday! Hubby coming back soon?

    Think of you often...

  4. Sweet picture. MY daughter too doesn't want to grow up. She's 11.

    Happy belated birthday, Zach.
