Baby Zac

Well, here goes. I said I would write about Zac and here it is. He is the sweetest baby I have ever had. He is smiling all the time, loves to play toys and will roll anything on the floor, (books, balls, cars, anything). Zac just turned 1. He is the baby I was wanting to complete my family! I love everything about him.

1. He looks like Aaron as a baby
2. Is in a good mood all the time (with 2 exceptions)
3. Loves everyone around him
4. He is fascinated with everything

The exception is that Zac has an ear piercing scream when he rides in a carseat and when he is sitting in a high chair. It really is terrible sounding!

The birthday party went great. I made cake and cupcakes and Aaron decorated the cake. It really turned out fine. All of the family was there and a few friends too.

Zac did not have a name until 7 days after he was born. We had a list, sort of. The usual names were on it again. I didn't even care if his name was Dagwood this time. I really liked the name Ryan, but it didn't go with Riley for a middle name and the name Ryan Aaron sounded funny. Zac has always been on the list, but it is very hard for us to pick one for certain. All the nurses at the hospital tried to help. They brought us several name books and we had one of our own too. Family and friends tried to help. The name lady at the hospital said we had to have a name before we left. We told her that we didn't have one yet and that we would just have to call her later. So we went home and talked about it for a week. We tried out all the names when we talked to him. Nothing sounded right. We wrote down meanings of names and still didn't know. We liked Zac, but didn't want it to be Zachary. We finally chose Zac Riley because we like Zachariah and Zaccheus, which are both hebrew. I feel like God remembered us and finally gave us another beautiful baby. A few of the names we call him sometimes are Baby Zac, Zac-e, Zac a rooni, Zaccheus and Zachariah.

The Hebrew name Zachariah means - God remembered
The Hebrew name Zaccheus means - innocent, pure
The Irish name Riley means courageous

I have always loved the name Riley... I am obsessed with names and their meanings and love what that name means too.
