First Birthday Photo Shoot!

Ezekiel’s birthday (the 27th) and my birthday (the 28th) were both BEAUTIFUL sunshiney days.  An odd occurrence for this time of the year, here in Oregon.  I thought “how great for a little outdoor photo shoot on his birthday!”  …  Zeek wasn’t totally thrilled.  No real smiles.  But he put up with my antics for a little while. 

Photo shoots are definitely harder with a little boy who loves to crawl!  I had to sit him down, snap a photo really quick, sit him back down, snap another fast photo…etc.  πŸ™‚  The birthday balloon distracted him only momentarily. πŸ™‚

 So serious.
 There are those beautiful blue’s that I love!!

 Mom, how could you?!  You know I hate hats!  And on my BIRTHDAY?!
(He cried after this picture…)

Then daddy drove home, mid-photo session…

So mommy hopped in some pictures. πŸ™‚

Zeek spent a good portion of his birthday standing on his tip toes, holding onto the window seat and peering out the window at the big neighbor boys across the street playing basketball.  I finally got smart and got his little stool for him to stand on.

 How precious are little feet?!

Mom, I can’t wait to be a big boy.

We had a great evening after daddy got home.  We took Zeek to Chuck E Cheese, went to Five Guys for burgers and fries, then *attempted* to take him swimming, after a quick evening power nap, at the Kroc Center…we got there at 8:30 and figured we’d swim and splash in the water until it closed at 10…but the pool portion closes at 9.  :(… so no swimming for us.  It was our first time going there and we were blown away with how cool it is!  2 pools – one for lap swim and one for play, with a big water slide, a bridge play area with buckets of water that dump on you, and a hot tub, a fitness center, 2 free hours of day care a day, a rock wall and lots of other activities.  I think the Anderson’s might be getting a membership there. πŸ™‚  It sure would encourage this mama to work out more!  We had memberships at another gym this year and while Skyler used it frequently, I used it … umm… twice.  Both times last January, before Zeek was born, when I was a good 9 months pregnant…So obviously, I got really good work outs in those two times, which carried over for the entire year for my fitness…right?! πŸ™‚  No, but seriously – how do you work out with a kid?? What do you do with him!?  So…having 2 free hours of childcare would be great!  Drop him off, work out for an hour (or 30 minutes, let’s be honest), and then Zeek and I can go for a swim!  Sounds like a lot of fun.

ANYWAY.  I still can’t believe my baby is one.

Love, K
