In Your Eleventh Year...



You goofed off with your brother...



You hiked...



And you baked...



You pursued your love of animals...



Of all types....



You played in the water...



And in the snow...



You did a lot of hanging out with family and friends...



Including your brand new baby cousin...



You even learned to pose...



But throughout it all, you remained our very first boy wonder:



Happy Birthday, Christopher!
