He’s getting older and with that comes a little bit of that “attitude” I certainly never had =) Brennan turned 7 in May and though I took some pics of him awhile back, I never posted them or anything about my little man at this age!
I’m not gonna lie, I had a hard time letting him take pictures in this red football t-shirt, but since I always decide what he wears for photos, this time I let him decide and frankly, this boy is all about sports!! He LOVES baseball, basketball, football and lately riding bikes with me! He’s already starting to frequent game watching and loves ESPN (thanks Uncle Aaron). I have a feeling my tv days are numbered in which we can happily watch something as a family that doesn’t have to do with a team or a game, really, I can’t believe it’s starting already!
Brennan is a GREAT kid. He’s a great student, now in 2nd grade he’s never once been in trouble at school or church, somehow he’s still in trouble at home though, go figure? He loves to learn and especially loves Math. He likes when we give him math problems verbally, preferably 2 or 3 problems in a row, like 10×3+25-10. He’ll think it through and just like his dad, give an answer without any paper. He even proved me wrong this summer when I insisted he not use “negative” numbers because they don’t teach that in 1st grade! Well he was angry and eventually explained that “mom, I do know negative numbers, the numberline doesn’t end, negative numbers are the ones below zero.”
He is quite social, loves his friends and independence. I’m pretty impressed by his responsible nature and kind heart, there was definitely a time…ok like 3 or 4 years where I thought he’d never stop throwing tantrums, I suppose he’s growing up, now comes the slamming doors in different kind of tantrums, I guess some things never do change!! Nonetheless, we love this kid and his bright red hair with the handful of freckles he continues to get on his face. He’s a good big brother, a great sport and already a pretty hard worker.
