What a wonderful Father's Day we had! Back on Mother's Day in May, we mentioned on our post how we were hoping that Zander would be home to celebrate Father's Day with us - we are so thankful he is here!
The highlight of our day was dinner at Amy's brother's home - Zander liked watching the big boys at play (Luke - 4, and Brady - 2.5 years). Zander fell asleep right after dinner following his earliest morning start yet (6:45am following a Saturday 11:30pm bedtime). Here are Bob and Jim - the Dads we celebrated, along with their boys. (Cute Scooby PJ's!)
What is your favorite thing about Zander?
Jim: Definitely his smile and his giggle. (These two have been doing some serious playing as of late and it's hard sometimes to tell who is giggling more).
What has been your most memorable Zander moment?
Jim: The moment we met him - Monday, June 7th at the agency in Seoul. Amy and I were waiting in the 'meeting' room and heard some noise in the hallway. We looked, and around the corner walked Zander! He was absolutely adorable wearing his little outfit with the tie. He took a few steps into the room and gave us a big smile. We didn't even know Zander was walking at that point - so the meeting was incredibly special and memorable. Also very memorable: any time Zander falls asleep in my arms.
What has been your biggest surprise about Zander?
Jim: His general easy-goingness - he is pretty low maintenance (all things considered!)... also - how much he loves to play!
What has been your most embarrassing Zander moment?
Jim: When I realized a few days in that when preparing Zander's formula, I was only giving him 40% of the recommended amount of powder. He is supposed to take 5 scoops of formula in each bottle, but I was only giving him 2 scoops... it was a long plane trip and I think I got used with the fact that on the plane, I used 2 formula travel packets for each bottle, so I had "2" on my mind. I felt so bad when I realized the error!
What experience with Zander do you look forward to most?
Jim: Having a catch with him - I can't wait!
Here is Daddy in action - providing Zander with some expert guidance on brushing (Zander is sporting the Buzz Lightyear PJ's he received as a gift from Luke & Brady in honor of the big Toy Story 3 premiere this weekend).
