Mommy's little Monkey

Friday was Zeke's 1st birthday.  I am amazed at how quickly he has grown up. I really did always consider that to be some sort of "mom cliche" but I have discovered that when someone says "They grow up so fast" they are actually under exaggerating. While I'm glad that he is growing up, I am also a sad because he's quickly becoming a big boy instead of Mommy's little baby boy. Of course, as he grows up he is developing such a personality and I'm able to start to seeing what qualities he got from each parent. He's a beautiful blend of the both of us. He is just beautiful.

In less sappiness, Zeke & I had a mini road trip to the Knoxville Zoo & ate cupcakes for his birthday. It was a nice day of just me & him and I couldn't have asked for better.

He gets his dorkiness from me.

His favorites were the penguins & monkeys. (Possibly because they we're the ones he could see the best.)

My favorites (of course) we're the elephants.

Even though we didn't get home until about 5:30, no birthday is complete without cake. (or a cupcake in this instance....)

Don't let his quiet smile fool you. About ten minutes later, he was like this:

 I couldn't have asked for a better little boy. God has blessed me beyond measure.

Zeke, Mommy & Daddy love you more than we'll ever be able to tell you.
