Christopher's 20th Birthday

My son Christopher turns 20 tomorrow. Another milestone in our family. You may not have heard me mention my second son too much on my blog - it's not because he is any less wonderful than my oldest - just more private, and I try to respect that. He is one of the most kind-hearted people I have ever had the honor to know. Contemplative and open minded - I always tell him that I want to be more like him when I grow up, and I can never seem to win an argument with him which makes us both laugh. As a child he was unbelievably creative and wildly energetic. As an adult he is graceful and straight forward - with a quiet, but strong nature. This aloof quietness often leads others to misunderstand him, but he doesn't seem to mind this, and I admire that. To quote a line I once heard - he is the delight of my eye and the darling of my heart. Happy birthday Chris - xoxoxo!!!

What touching photos and great tune written by Mr. Bob Dylan. Enjoyed looking at these memories captured on film with you.

All the best to your baby who's now a lucky young man.

Ask Chris when he is going to run away with me and the girls to New Zealand?

All my love to Alexey's birth twin Chris...

Happy Birthday, Chris! Can you believe the only time I have met and spent time with him was in the early 90's (1993?) Both of the boys were little and sooo cute. Congratulations on raising strong, wonderful men.
Absolutely love the video.
Love and happiness!

Happy birthday, Chris! We've had so much fun together as brothers, and it was nice to be reminded of that. I cannot believe he's already 20 years-old; I just realized that today. Even though I'm only 2 years older, he's still my little brother. It's eerie, at any rate. I'd give him a birthday hug if I were at home, but I'll call him today instead. I am very proud of his intelligence and kindness, and if he didn't know that before, he knows it now.

P.S. -He always was more photogenic than me! ;)
