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!
