Pictured above with his mom and dad, Courtney Short and Cody Hansen, Webster City, Zander made his appearance at 10:51 p.m. Jan. 1. He weighted 7 pounds, 1.3 ounces and was 21 inches in length. Grandparents are Chantel Short, Kamrar, William Short, Webster City; Kathy Nicholson of Rudd and Dave and Tammy Hansen of Alden. Joh Draper of California and Marlene Skogerboe of Minnesota are the great-grandparents. As the first baby born in 2013, Zander and his parents received several gifts to mark the occasion, including a dozen roses from Flower Cart; $100 from the Hamilton County Public Hospital Foundation; $25 in Webster City Bucks and a stuffed bear from First State Bank; a quilt by the “Quilting Friends;” a T-shirt from the Hospital Auxiliary, a scrapbook from the Family Birth Place and a baby spoon from the hospital dietary department.
