My almost one year old...

Le sigh...

He's still a baby.  He's not quite one... I've still got 12 hours before he's hitting that milestone.

How can one year go by so quickly?

Doesn't it seem like yesterday we were sitting in the hospital trying desperately to figure out if this beautiful red head should be named Cole or Zachary?... or better yet, sitting in the hospital wondering where that beautiful red hair came from?!?

I'm clinging to his baby-ness... and a birthday certainly doesn't mean he's no longer my baby- but man, having a one year old makes it seem like he's not much of a baby anymore.  He's slowly moving into the toddler stage- but I'm not really ready for that.

But tonight he isn't quite yet one... he's still 11 months old.  And he'll always be my baby boy.

Enough of the sappiness... even though it's a touch emotional for me, I'm still a Gerold... and Gerold's celebrate birthdays for longer than one day ;-)  So tonight was celebration #1... and Zac's first taste of birthday cake.

The picture of him smashing it in his face is priceless! I guess that's why they call it a smash cake! Happy 1st Birthday Zachary!!!
