I remember so clearly seeing Zane's perfect, chubby tiny face for the first time. I can't even wrap my brain around the fact that it was 8 years ago. How is it even possible that my teeny baby is now an 8 year old, going into THIRD grade??!?
Zane is pure sweetness. He always has been. Although we have seen glimpses of attitude, anger, frustration, etc, he still pulls through and always reminds us of his sincerely sweet and kind heart. It's so fascinating watching him navigate his way through the challenges and struggles and accomplishments and independence of getting older. I'm trying to let go and give him more freedom, but it's hard! He's just still my little guy.
I'm so proud of all he is and all he's becoming.
For his friend birthday party, we let him invite a few friends to a Rockies game. It just so happened that we had tickets on a super rainy day. So, we got there and the game was already delayed. It didn't get these boys down. We ended up waiting two hours for the game to start. The four boys were so cute and well behaved. Zane had the best time ever with his buds.
We had the best day on the actual 4th.
It's so funny...Smith was so exhausted that he asked to stay home instead of fireworks. He wanted to sleep - smart guy. So the big kids, Grandma and Grandpa, Jord, Ben, and Molly, and Revae and I headed over. See those two tiny bodies out in the field? That's Zane and Em pushing the limits of how far away they ran.
