I have been slowly adjusting to the fact that Zach wants/needs his independence. It makes me sad because he is still my baby and I sometimes wish he needed me more or would allow me to still do things I love to do (picking out his clothes). Today he went further than I would like. He made his own bacon for breakfast! Don't worry, it was the ready crisp kind that he loves. He put slices on the plate, put them in the microwave and set the right time with only at little verbal assistance from me. He is such a big boy.
