Baseball "season" ?

UGG!! I think it is time that we all need to accept that i am not a good blogger and will ALWAYS be behind. But i will keep trying! I have had these pictures ready to go for a while now but haven't been able to find the time to type anything (It's a lot harder to type with a baby in my arms).

Anyway, So AJ played Baseball (Coach-pitch) for the first time this year. He LOVED it and, I must say, was pretty good too! The weather was less than cooperative and his baseball "season" was not very summer-like. I think he had one game and maybe one practice that was warm and sunny...ohh well! But we were at all the games (we had to tag-team a little because of Amy) with blankets and sweatrshirts when needed! :)

Here is his first practice. He was all decked out in his baseball gear-GO SOX! :) Julia was happy about the playground. AJ just jumped right in and was the first to bat. We were so proud of him. He was really involved and excited to learn and practice.

When "Grammie" came to visit she took the kids to the store to pick out a prize. AJ chose a bakugan and a batting helmet! (That is dedication!) He thought he was pretty cool that he had his OWN helmet at the games!

Here are pix from his first game. He was SO excited!
He had some nice hits and my friend got a great action shot of the ball up in the air. (Top right) We were so proud. It was so fun to watch him and cheer for him!

Ok, this picture CRACKS me up! If this isn't true baseball form, i don't know what is! :)

So, the season has been over for about a month now, but at least it has been documented! He loved baseball and has been playing at the park with friends and practicing with Daddy whenever he can. We are so proud of how well he did and we all had so much fun going to his games and practices as a family!
