Dear Zachary, Zach, Zach-attack, Snacky, Moffee,
I just wanted to wish you a happy 3rd birthday!  I want to tell you that I love you more than life itself.  Every morning I wake up to "mommy, I awake".  No, you are not potty trained, but think it is great to use the toilet when your friend Peter is here.  You are the most animated kid I know.  You have so much to say and have been talking since you were one.  You have started to stutter, and most of your sentences start out with "hey, hey, hey, hey.. or mom, mom, mom, mom.  It is so precious.  I can see the wheels turning in your mind as you try to spit out all you have to say.  You are smart and pick up on things quick.  You like to show off and tease other kids.  You are so so loud.  You only have one volume.  I sometimes look at your eyes and face and the cute little splash of freckles you have and I get so overwhelmed with how much I love you.  I tuck you in bed at night and you hug me and kiss me and tell all your friends in the neighborhood goodnight.  Zachy, you are one of the best things I have ever done and I am so proud to be your mom.  I thank my father in heaven for the chance to be your earthly mother.  I love you lotz and lotz and...That is what you say to me each night.  Happy Birthday!!!!!


  1. Oh, Rachie...Zach is so great. You can see his expressions through his big blue eyes. Even at a young age you can see that he wants to talk and tell you about the world. What a blessing he is for your family.

  2. Oh those eyes!! Such a cutie!
