Other notes on Brandon:  Over his lifetime, Brandon has been our most challenging child.  BUT, over the past six months or so, he has turned into the easiest!  He is so helpful around the house and is almost always cooperative.  It rocks.  He has started caring about cleanliness and will randomly clean off the dining room table or start sorting his Legos by color.  Sweet.  He continues to do well in school.  He rides his bike there, even through the freezing cold mornings.  His passion for reading seems to be waning.  He's been more into origami, graphic novels, and list-type books than novels.  It's still kind of weird for me to picture him in middle school next year, but I'm slowly starting to embrace it and it doesn't freak me out like it did a few months ago.


  1. Pizza in the car - what a glorious smell. Especially the next morning :).

  2. I love that Mustangs make Brandon smile. (I'm assuming this is the car, and not the horse?) I can't believe our boys will be in middle school either. I'd like to freeze mine at age 10, before adolescence kicks in and messes with everybody's heads!!

  3. Since your family has so much musical talent I say you give those 'ol Osmonds a run for their money.

  4. I love his grown up response!

  5. Thanks for these fun profiles! I had to catch up on whitney's. It's so interesting how Brandon's interests continue to evolve. He's such a fascinating kid and so full of life. It will be fun to see what he's into next year!
