Besides, today is a really special day. Today is the one year anniversary of Zack coming home from the hospital. It was emotional and scary beyond belief. We had to actually care for this little thing on our own? He was so tiny and fragile! Kevin and I picked him up in the afternoon...spent time doing paperwork, taking lots of pictures and saying our farewells to the incredible staff at Tarzana's NICU. The nurses loved him so much and cared for him (and me) like he was their own. I spent a lot of nights in those rocking chairs feeling like I do today...sorry for myself and using up all their tissue (which probably cost me 4 bucks a tissue at hospital prices!)
In any event, Zack has come so far and is such an awesome kid...He smiles through everything and always makes me laugh...even when I don't want to. So Z...Happy Anniversary and Happy Halloween...may you never see the inside of a hospital again. Your mom and dad love you!
