Zach's 2nd birthday
Wow. Has it really already been 2 years since I was first holding my big boy? I cannot believe how fast time flies by. He has truly made our lives special. Constantly giving us something to laugh about, and him and his brother are without a doubt our world.
We began our morning by opening some much awaited presents. Zach came down to find his very own kitchen from mommy and daddy. It was even stocked up with pots and pans, and his wonderful Oba send fruits and veggies to cook. We even got him sushi to cook, since after all, we do live in Japan!

During the day I spoiled Zach. We played inside a bit with his new kitchen, and played on his tricycle outside a bit too. Because so many of our friends have moved already, we decided to keep Zach's birthday low key this year. Instead of a big mustache bash, we made a few cupcakes and invited some friends over to play and eat. Zach loved his homemade birthday pizza and the cupcakes Mommy made. He's a fan of this birthday thing!
All in all, it was a successful birthday. I still cannot believe how fast these 2 years have gone by. We both love him so much and cannot wait to see what he will make of his life. For now, we're enjoying every minute of toddlerhood.
Happy Birthday to my favorite firstborn son! We love you!
