Happy 3rd Birthday Christopher!

I can't believe that I have been a mother for three whole years.  Today my baby boy turned three!! He has been excited about his birthday for some time now and I think today lived up to all of his expectations.  We celebrated with family and a few friends and Christopher had a ball.

Cory and I are both absolutely crazy about our little boy.  He fills our lives with happiness and our hearts with joy each and every day.  This past year, we have watched him "grow up" in so many ways...
  • We took him to school for the first time
  • We moved him from his crib to his "Big Boy Bed"
  • He gets his own seat on airplane trips (and behaved beautifully for 10 hours over seas)
  • He wears big boy underwear and tells us when he needs to go potty
But my favorites have been...
  • Watching him meet his baby sister for the first time
  • Watching him be a big brother and see the genuine love he has for his sister
  • Hearing him say "Love you Mommy" before bed each night

What a cute pic of him so excited on his birthday! The girls and I have talked several times about how much fun we had being around him. There are several families at church that we sit by that have firstborn sons about his age. The girls are just drawn to them, and they always remind us of Christopher.

What a great birthday celebration the two of you gave for your precious little boy. I am so blessed to have been a part and to see his enjoyment and excitement of each gift and card. He was a joy to watch and I am thankful for my time with him for the last three years. Love you, Christopher!!!! Edie
