He keeps us laughing

Curly blond hair. Amazing blue eyes. Little comedian. Story Teller. Could live on Nana's bread with butter and cinnamon. Little brother. Video gamer. Math lover. Ninja fighter.

My Zane man.

You turn 5 today and boy are you excited!

You are my baby. You don't like when I tell you that. You are a BIG boy you tell me.
You are very excited that your new brother, Kole, is younger than you (by a month) because then I will call him my baby.

You came into this world as our first home birth.

*No, I am not an anti-doctor, hippie, tree huger kind of woman. We had our first two children at a labor center and since it went so well we decided why not just have everyone come to us! No tree hugging was involved in the birth of my child.

It was a great experience for all of us. Your brother and sister got to cut the cord.

Sissy was the first to get you dressed which was so cool for me because I was the first to dress my little sister when she was born at home.
*Yes, the crazy hippie gene runs in the family;)

Your brother put on your little hat

You were also our first screamer! You would scream all.the.time. Happy, sad, mad. You screamed.

One Year Old

You finally started talking and baby - whoops -I mean, boy do you have a lot to say!

2 Years Old

I keep a journal of all the silly things you do and say. The entries are getting more frequent everyday. Here are just a few:

August 2009

Zane changed his baby's diaper with a tissue and then rocked him while singing "Hush Little Baby". His baby?
A little green tractor.

June 2010

While playing outside in the dirt Zane was aggravated at all the bugs. He came and said to me, I know! The bugs can be my friends! I will say, Hi bugs! and then they can come into the house with me and have chicken nuggets!"

August 2011

Zane - Mom! You are really good at that! You would probably be good at Mario because you do those dishes so good.

October 2011

In the waiting room at a Dr. appointment.

Zane: Mommy, if you go to the car and get me the laptop then I will give you fifty thousand dollars.

And where are you getting that $50,000???

DUH, from doing my chores.

October 2011
Yes, that would be my son sitting in church laughing outloud during the singing of the solo, "Beauty for Ashes". He of course finds it hilarious that she is singing, "Booty for Ashes"

October 2011

Zane - "You know why I don't want to die? Because I don't know the directions home when I'm ready to come flying back"

3 Years Old
Aunt Kara makes you the best cakes

Little Big Planet Cake last year

4 Years Old

Whenever I turn the camera on you, this is what I get

You don't hold back.

It's all Zane for the world to see!

And this world is blessed to have you in it.

Happy Birthday baby boy. Oh how I love you!
