Japanese + and X Block For Alexander

So, of course I had to make a block for each of my boys as well!  I will have to do Oliver's next, but this one is Alexander's.  It's hard to come up with ideas as they are both still so young yet, but one thing that is for certain is that Alexander loves cars!  Tractors too, but I didn't have a piece of fabric with a tractor on it.  This block is mainly about his name.  We love the name Alexander, but here in Australia everyone makes nicknames out of people's proper names.  We were prepared for that.  We always planned on nicknaming him Zander.  Everywhere we go though, as soon as I introduce him as Alexander, people say, "oh, hello Alex."  Ugghhh!  I really do not like that!  Then somehow along the way, my husband started calling him Dandy (he did/ does what we call a little Dandy dance).  Then that turned into Dandelion by me, though he just calls himself Dandy. Can you find his name and day of birth?
