This blog is dedictated to our son, Zander.

Thursday, June 08, 2006


Zander is really into books. He went down for his afternoon nap with one yesterday - and when he woke up this morning - or called me to come get him, that is - he was looking at it again. Which is significant if you knew he has developed an attachment to one of his toys, a turtle named Rodney that Matt gave him for Hanukkah. But alas, Rodney just lay there, untouched and unloved.

Zander spends a good chunk of his play time pulling down his books and looking through them. Which is a step up from just pulling them down and walking all over them, wreaking the binding. They may be tough ol' board books and he may be only 20# but, well, nothing lasts forever, my friends.

Now for our pictorial interlude:

Zander the Mighty on 5/29/06

Storytime on 5/31/06

Box o' toys and clothes from Great Aunt Margie and Uncle Stephen on 6/1/06 - thank you!

"I can absorb nutrition through my head." 6/6/06

I very few pictures of Zander at Aunt Chrissi's graduation party and none of them are decent. The bloom's off the rose, I guess, because most of the pictures are of everyone else. Which is not a bad thing, except for this here blog.

Oh and we haven't forgotten to send out thank you cards for the birthday gifts. We just like to take our time here at Chez McLane. We eschew cheap store-bought thank you cards and all that creativity takes time.

Zander has a lot of words. I'm going to start cataloging them here. But that will have to wait for the next entry because all that picture sorting took a lot of time and I must get something else done this morning before el nino wakes up.
