Is a great big brother.
He is a leader.

He is obedient.
He is a big helper.
He loves OU...very important for this family.
He has a great imagination.
He At random times will just say, "Mommy, I love you."
He gets excited over anything "Star Wars."

There is so much about this boy to love.

Christopher, Your Mommy loves you so much. This week has been kind of bittersweet. You have spent everyday for the last 8 years with your Mommy and yesterday I took you and your sister to school for the first time. I am so proud of you and the little man you are becoming. Thank you for being a helper, a great big brother and for making Mommy laugh. I pray that this year God will continue to work in your heart and draw you to Himself. Hope you have a great day. I am so glad that God chose me to be your Mommy. I LOVE YOU!!!!!
