Brag Book



Since, I don't have any old photos on my computer, I thought for the next few Fridays I would post some of my favorite people in the world and brag on them a little bit. So here goes... This is Jeremiah, my oldest son. He will be 9 on March 20th. I will never forget giving birth to this precious child, who did not want to come out of the womb. One week late and an emergency C-section brought this little man, who completely stole my heart and changed my life. He was the easiest baby on earth. Completely on a schedule, sleeping all night starting at 5 weeks, noise didn't bother him, ate well, and never cried. I thought I was the perfect mother (stay tuned next week, when God shows me who is in control - AKA - birth of Elijah). Back to Jeremiah, He has an amazing heart and is such a great friend. I am proud of who he is and know God will do big things in his life. Now time for the bragging - Jeremiah is the most skilled basketball player at his age I have ever seen. He shot and made 4-3 pointers last week, at least 12 rebounds, 4 steals, and about 20 pts. in all. He loves basketball and works so hard to be good. He loves spending that time with his dad and I have to say when your dad is a coach, you would think there would be pressure, but Scott is super calm with him and just wants him to have fun. Have a great Friday my friends !!!

Great idea for your Friday posts! Especially for those of us who haven't seen you guys in a couple of years!! It's so neat to see how Jeremiah has grown and to hear about how well he is doing!! I know you guys are so proud of him (and all of your kids - but today is Jeremiah's day!). I can see it now - one day he'll be a basketball star and I'll be able to say "I knew him when he was just a little tot!" Have a great week-end!

Go Jeremiah!! His confidence and self-esteem must be soaring. Your believe in him and all of your children is amazing to me Gwen. I enjoy hearing moms brag about their stars!

Gwen I'm going to brag on him also even though I have not know him too long. Just being around him I can tell that he is a kind hearted young man. He seems very mature for his age also. I enjoy the time that I am around him. Even when they were climbing the walls at O'Charley's the first time we met. :)

GWEN OATSVALL said...

thanks pam- I remember O'Charley's too. I just knew you were going to think we were crazy to bring a daughter into our madness. But I think Jeremiah is a sweetie too.

So sorry I haven't commented on your blog in awhile! I am going back to all the posts I missed to comment. As you have read on my blog I have had computer problems and when my mom give me a little time to comment on blogs on her computer I don't get all the way down the list!! Anyway, what a great little boy ou have!!
