Happy 2nd Birthday Zach!

My nephew's 2nd birthday is today and since we won’t see him today {insert sad face} we gave him his birthday gift on Sunday.

It was the sweetest thing when he opened his gift. He said, “WOW” at least 10 times and it made me so happy. His eyes lit up, his lips broke into the biggest smile and he did not let his gift out of his sight.

I miss having that reaction when I open gifts. I want to be a child again to just remember how awesome it was to jump up and down and clap non-stop because you had been given the most perfect gift.

I might try that this Christmas. I’ll just get up and start jumping up and down, clapping my hands and I'll say, "WOW!" over and over again. As long as Sean promises not to lock me away, I’ll do it for each gift, haha. OK, maybe not, but you understand what I mean right? I miss that.

I didn’t get the best pictures of his reaction as I was too busy watching him when he realized what he had been given. I had the warmest feeling inside, the feeling you get when you realize you have made someone's day. But of course, I got a few.

{You sure it's OK to rip all this paper?}




{He loves his cars so we got him a Remote Controlled Hummer. My poor sister. She already told me that he stayed up until midnight playing with his new car. Haha. She'll get me back one day.}




4 more days til Christmas! ♥

  7. That is adorable! And you are so right, we totally do that as kids and as we get older it fades away. It shouldn't be that way! We should still have that joy and surprise. =) You should definitely do that at Christmas. =)
