Alexander is One

Today Alexander had his one-year-old check-up with the pediatrician. He weighed 21 lb. 13 oz. (50th percentile), was 30.5 inches tall (75th percentile) and head size of 18.5 cm (75th percentile). The pediatrician was glad to hear that although he's not the least bit interested in walking yet, neither were his big brother and sister at this age. Looks like he's following in the Roebuck tradition of watching his first birthday zoom by without first steps on the horizon. :-) We love our little one-year-old so very much!  Here are some photos to capture this fun stage:

We LOVE Chick-Fil-A for so many reasons, not the least of which is that once a year they feed our family (and thousands of others, too) for free! Yesterday was Cow Appreciation Day at CFA, the one day a year that if you dress like a cow, you get a free meal. We got all decked out and enjoyed the fun together. Maggie wanted to be a Princess Cow (thanks, Aunt Suzie, for the nightgown that worked perfectly for her costume!), and I talked Max into being a King Cow to match. I was just a plain 'ol regular cow.... who enjoyed my free meal immensely. :-)

Hey, Great Mama and Great Papa, look what Alexander grew into just in time for Cow Appreciation Day?! Thanks for helping make him the cutest little cow around!

Thoughts from Maggie

"Mom, if an animal only eats wood, would he be called a woodivore? (pause) Hey, wait!! I think I'm a SUGARVORE!!"
