Happy Birthday Christopher

Nine years ago today Christopher Michael Anderson joined our family. What a relief it was to have him here. After going into labor Sunday morning at 6:30, he was finally born Tuesday morning. He weighed a whopping 9 lbs., 1 oz. and was 22 in. long. He spent a week in the NICU because I had the strep b virus and didn't know it. That was quite an emotional week. So excited to have a sweet baby but leaving him in the hospital was heart wrenching.

He finally came home and life has been an adventure ever since. What a joy he is. He is CONSTANTLY singing, humming, and making many other noises. He is an amazing big brother. He takes care and watches over all his siblings. I LOVE watching him interact with Kaityn Mae. He loves her and she adores him. He asks how her day is and will read her a book just about any time that she asks.

Christopher started *gulp* third grade this year. He enjoys reading and announced the other night at dinner that all the girls at his school like him. We might have to talk about this...ha!!! He is just like his Daddy. He has NEVER met a stranger and anyone is his friend.

We are so blessed to have him in our family. He is a joy to this Momma. So grateful that I was chosen to take care of him on the earth.

Happy Birthday Bubba...I love you!
