Happy Sweet 16th Birthday Zachary!!

Today my "little boy" turned 16!!! Wow, it still seems like only yesterday that I was looking at my baby in NICU and then holding this scary little person in my arms!

So much has happened in our lives since Zac was born, and we are all better for it. We are so proud of you Zac. You are growing up into a wonderful, sweet, caring and thoughtful young man. You are a wonderfully talented musician, a great older brother and a terrific son. Our lives are richer and fuller because you are here.

To think how Zac started of very precariously - he ingested meconium in utero before he was born and was very sick and spent his first 4 days in intensive care. I didn't even get to see what he looked like until he was 3 hours old and one of the nurses took a polaroid photo and brought it to me.

Here is a layout I made using a scan of that photo. . . .

And here he is a couple of weeks ago - a strapping, 6'1" and still growing!


Hope you have a wonderful day Zac!! We love you!!!
