Xander Commander

Today my heart has been occupied with this kid:

Within an hour of meeting Xander, Jeremy and I (and our entire travel group) had decided he would someday be student body president. (: The boy just has "it." He is funny, engaging, sensitive, bright, independent, and loving. When he first saw us he laughed and jumped into our arms and has never looked back. He has the most fun imagination and makes the biggest messes with it! I'll often go into the kitchen and he's sitting there with a huge smile and a sandwich he's made himself-- we're talking mayo, mustard, meat, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce-- the whole shebang. He answers almost any question with "sure!" and loves to be my helper. He has the most sensitive heart, and if he sees someone crying, he's likely to join right in. He makes the funniest faces that make us all laugh. He dresses up as Batman or the Incredible Hulk or some other superhero almost every single day. He has the cutest little stutter. He is easygoing and always grateful.

I adore him.



  1. I sent all my friends the picture of Xander and Tyler making the "eyebrow" face. The family resemblance is astounding! I love that kid!

  2. He does have IT!!!
    We had SOOOO much fun last weekend!!!

  3. We love our little Xander Commander and can't believe how yours he truly is!! He fits like a fine glove.
