It was Christopher’s birthday yesterday.
He is 7. I can’t quite believe that number, even though I’m typing it.
He is a very sweet boy. He won the, “Kind to all” award in first grade this last school year. It fits him. He is very aware of other people’s feelings and is very good at mechanical reasoning. I knew he was Jonathan’s son when he expained electrical currents to me in Kindergarten.
He was an adorable baby…very tiny and ALL EYES. He has grown into such an adorable kid, and I have a sinking feeling that I am going to have to do female control when he is a teenager.
He is his brother’s best friend. I am so grateful they adore each other because there are not a lot of kids around here to play with. James has really made him feel special this birthday…he keeps walking around saying, “Hey, Mr. Seven”. Christopher eats it up. (He wasn’t very thrilled with James rubbing in that in a month he would achieve world domination because he is turning 10 and therefore will receive the “Diabolical Power of Double Digits”.)
I did a bunch of special little surprises and treats for him yesterday. We all went to see Superman II and then ate out for dinner. (Pancake house. His favorite.). We’ll have a family party and presents this weekend.
