These past few weeks, we have had a lot of family over (so very nice!). And, on Friday, my sister and I got to spend some special quality time together–sitting on the couch, each holding one baby girl, chatting about growing up and how we want to be as moms. I had such a nice time, Jamie. Love you!
That same night, it kinda hit me that Saturday was Blake’s first real t-ball game. The other weeks were just practices. I had to go! I felt fine. The girls would probably love to get some fresh air. And I just couldn’t miss being there for my big guy, and seeing Mike being a great Dad. The more time goes by, I’m SO aware of how important it is to be there for my family. To be what my sis and I chatted about–To be a good mom and wife.
As usual, Mike and Blake had a blast! We were lucky enough to have Mike’s Dad, Auntie Amory and Uncle Jay there to cheer everybody on. Blake’s favorite part: wearing the helmet and hitting the ball. Let’s go RAYS!
It’s been a rough couple of weeks trying to get through these contractions, going to way too many doctor appointments, and just being big and awkward. But, tonight I thought: I can’t skip over these milestones that Blake is hitting just because I might be a little tired. This online diary of our lives is something I’m already looking back on.
This past Saturday, March 16, 2013, was B’s first t-ball practice and he did great! For an hour, they got to rotate to different stations: catching, hitting, throwing, and running the bases. All decked out in his Cubs Spring Training shirt with his lefty glove in hand, he had so much fun throwing the ball towards the cones (pics below). Then, they moved to hitting (watch video) and so on. Running the bases was a little tricky because his competitiveness came out and he kept throwing his arms to the side so none of the kids could get to the base first. He’s learning.
I also met a really nice mom who was pregnant too. I can already see us being friends. Her son and Blake even hugged goodbye. Let’s hope they are on the same team!
