What Makes Braden, Braden

Here's my post about Braden, if you missed Bryce's you can read it here. Cade's will be next.

He is quiet

His voice is almost always hoarse sounding (thanks to nodules on his vocal chords).

His voice is worse in baseball season because he is always encouraging his teammates (hard to fuss at him for that!). He is the leader of the team.

He's my lover boy. He is always good for a cuddle.

He loves hugs and kisses.

He has tons of friends. Everyone loves him...

...especially the girls. They swoon after him.

He had a girlfriend last year.

He is one of the most popular kids, but has no idea.

He is a very good student.

He loves his hair long. I don't know why, but he refuses to wear it short at all.

Math is his favorite subject, and he is VERY good at it.

He is a very picky eater. Drives me insane.

He is super skinny. You can see every one of his ribs.

All his teachers adore him, and so do his friends' parents.

He is a trememdous baseball player (and any other sport). He is an awesome catcher and short stop.

He is very competitive, and absolutely hates to lose at anything. It gets him in trouble sometimes.

He loves for his room to be picked up. (not that it always is)

He is more mischievious than you would expect. I am always surprised when he is the culprit.

He is the spitting image of Richard when he was a boy.

He has the exact personality of Richard. (drives me crazy sometimes!)

He has lots of freckles, just like his dad.

He loves to do anything with his dad.

He is the biggest hunter and fisherman of the three. He has been practicing pulling back a bow for months now so he could go bow hunting.

He is very thoughtful and kind.

He grins instead of smiling big.

He enjoys reading when I make him (every night). He won't do it on his own, and only likes to read books that have something to do with sports.

He has never really used his imagination. He'd rather play with a ball of some sort.

He hates to color or draw, always has.

He is very much a saver of his money. He bought his first bank CD this summer.

He is very polite.

He is very excited about our Chinababy. He asks about her often, and likes to see pictures of your Chinababies on your blogs. We will probably name her a name that he came up with. I'm not sure yet, though. He can't wait to go to China.

He asked if we could visit a bouncy ball factory while we're in China! They know all their toys say "Made in China"

He is a thinker. While Bryce lives in a fantasy world alot, Braden doesn't. He notices and hears more of what happens around him.

He and Bryce are opposite in just about every way. They are still great friends, though.

He is a HUGE blessing to our family.

Here are Braden's stats:

At 10 years and 1 months:
your child is 75 pounds, and that is at the 60th percentile for weight
your child is 56 inches, and that is at the 67th percentile for height
