Xander Go Braugh!

Top O' the Mornin' to ya!
Grandma sent Xander his birthday present and said he could open it early. Here are some pictures of him opening the present and playing with his new "woooo woooo!" (that is what he calls a train).

I'm so excited!

How does this bow come off?

What's it say, Daddy?

Ripping paper is hard work!

OOOh OOOOh! What is it?

Open it up, Daddy!

Let's read these instructions...let's see...we need batteries.

OK, batteries are in, now let's see what this thing can do!

It plays Irish music when you push the train.

I love my new train! Thanks Grandma!

Here fishy fishy fishy......

So we got a fish tank for Xander several months ago. We were planning on getting him some fish for it about a week later...once the tank water was established. Well, that didn't happen. We ended up basically using the fish tank for "white noise" and a night light.
Well, we took Xander to Petsmart yesterday and we picked out four fish for his tank.
We got three Mickey Mouse platies and one other kind of platy...can't remember which kind it is called....oh well.
We liked the Mickey Mouse ones because they have black spots on their tails that look like a Mickey Mouse head. So cute.
Anytime Xander sees a fish he puckers his lips and makes a kissy sound and then a pop sound...hard to describe but just like when you make a fishy face...ya know what I am talking about? Anyway, he hasn't really gotten the whole concept that you name the fish. So since he only says a few words we decided to name each fish some of Xander's favorite words. There is BUS, TRUCK (which he pronounces "ducksh"), THIS and DOOR.
Anyway, here are some pictures of his new fish...

Here he is just after he finished making the fishy face...every time I snapped a picture it didn't take until he was done with the face....UGH! Oh well, at least I got Tracy making the face. LOL

Here fishy fishy fishy....

Hello fish!

Welcome to Xander's room! Please keep your fins and gills inside the tank at all times. Enjoy your life in your new digs!

We put it up on his dresser so he couldn't reach it but could still see it.
