he, being that kid of mine. i don't think i have expressed enough publicly just how much this child of mine loves baseball.
he catches (omg, how to make your child sound gay in 4 words or less)
he hits like a rockstar
..and i don't think i've mentioned enough publicly how much i love baseball. i.love.it (go dodgers). always have. always will.
the best part? it is so much fun to watch this kid play baseball. the way his mind works. he is completely on top of things before he makes any decision. he knows who is playing what position, and if they can catch the bullet he's going to throw at them or not. he is fully aware of how much the pitcher is paying attention to him when he's on the bases. if he's not giving blake his full attention, well, blake's going to steal. cause he's quick. and cause he can.
in a word, it's awesome. he's awesome. and fun.
this weekend is our first travel ball tournament. i'm so excited because A- i could spend my life at the ballfield watching this kid play baseball and i'd be perfectly happy... and B- because these kids are going to be good. this tournament is going to be TOUGH. and we've been lacking good, solid competition since we moved up here from LA. i've been longing for kids who are as good as blake is (and better) to play against. i'm psyched. truly. i can't wait to have blake playing against kids who are better than he is. i like blake to be challenged on the ball field (something he hasn't truly been since moving up here. at least not consistantly). so i'm really excited. and blake is too-
here's to a super fun weekend with lots of sun, nachos, and seeds!
