Critter is NINE!

Our son Christopher is nine years old today.

I sat with him and one of our grandsons this morning, and reminded him that he was a very special boy. When he was born, by emergency C-section, his apgar score was only 2. He did have a heartbeat, but not much else was happening. I think he was in shock at being ripped so suddenly from his nice, warm environment.

Nine years have flown by. Critter is now a very capable young fella. He loves to read. Soccer is his favourite sport. He takes notes in church and asks good questions, and is able to tell us the main points of the sermon AND apply them to his own life. He loves babies, and is thankful that God has blessed him with 14 nephews and nieces... with another one on the way any day.

Happy Birthday, dear son of mine! I am so glad you are NINE! Love, Mom

Sounds like a fine young man growing up in a great family.
