1st Favorite Face

I don't get enough credit for the adorableness of this face. From the time he was born, everyone has always said "He looks just like his dad."




Truth is, he looks a lot like I did when I was a kid. Same coloring, same eyes, same freckles.





His personality is a lot like mine too. He's...uptight. Detailed. Obsessive about schedules and plans. I've learned to mellow, though, and Brigham is just getting started. He is also sweet, and funny, and smart, and sensitive...he is my little thinker. In fact, in the car last week he brought up one of our family themes. Hunter said something blonde (no offense), as he often does, and Brigham said "Every family needs a cheerleader." He continued, referring to himself, "And every family needs a thinker, too. Right, mom?" "Absolutely. So what am I in this family?" I asked. Brave, huh? To ask my kids what their interpretation of my role in the family is? "Every family needs a lovable mom," he wisely replied.

I have to love him for that--and so much more!




I love that impish grin. Brigham is my 1st favorite face. Hard to believe he is 7 today!

I have thought for years now that Brigham looks SOOO much like you. You know what's scary? Brigham is now the age we were when we met. So, I remember that face, well. Happy Happy Birthday, Brigham!

I love that face too. Partly because he is soooo much like you and not just in his adorable face...! Love that you noticed.
