Zach has never really waited in anticipation for anything... until he mentioned right after Christmas that he wanted a sword. I off-handedly told him he might be able to have one for his birthday... and so it began. Six full months of "Is it my birthday now? It's gonna be my birthday, and I'll be five, and I'll have a party, and cake, and a sword. Is it my birthday now?"
Well, the day finally arrived. I had bought this sword two months ago and put it away... somewhere... Totally could not find it yesterday morning. So I visited a couple of stores seeking a new one, and fortunately found one. So I guess when the other one appears, he'll have a set to duel with.
Here he is, shouting, "I have the power!"
And at his birthday lunch, with his balloon...
Happy birthday, little man... hope you had the best one ever.
