Happy 1st Birthday Zander!!

365 days ago I was SO happy to be giving birth (maybe because he was 10 days late), we got our sweet little Zander. What you may not have known, we planned to name him Kingsley, but when we saw him, the name didn't fit. Travis didn't like the name Zander but he agreed, it seemed to "fit" our tiny little man.

Many of you probably remember I wasn't that crazy about having a boy... but it hasn't been that bad, in fact it is pretty good. Zander is my boy, (just don't ask him because if you do he shakes his head no.) He rarely picks someone over me.



We have had some bumps and bruises along the way but for the most part, Zander is a happy kid. He tries to keep up with Ayda, he loves to "play" in her room (AKA pull out every toy, break her lego castles, and tear pages out of her books).








Here is to another great year, I love you, my not so baby boy!!






1 year stats:
32 inches tall (95th percentile)
22 pounds (50th percentile)
head- still big (95 percentile)

I love his hame, it is adorable and very original. I do not remember you being 10 days late, WOW!

He is just so darling, and the name does fit much better! He does seem to prefer his mama the most, which is as it should be! Happy Day Little Man!

A very happy birthday to my sweet little Zander. What Nika doesn't say is that he will nod his head "yes" when I ask him if he is Gaco's boy!!! (NOT)

Ya growing up you swore you'd never have a boy. I'm glad to see you've changed your mind, not that you really had a choice in the matter. :) Boys are so much fun!
