First T-Ball Game

Saturday the Dodgers took on a team from Bronson for our first game of the season (and AB’s first game ever!) It was the highlight of our week.


The kids were so cute and you couldn’t help but laugh at all the adorableness on the field. DSC_9550

Our team’s “team-mom” made the adorable batting line up that hung in our dugout- super cute!DSC_9548

They play two innings, so AB got to bat (her favorite part) twice. DSC_9552Both times she hit from a pitch. DSC_9555She’s got quite a swing, and it’s a good thing, because she’s not exactly the fastest runner on the team. She runs like her Momma. :) DSC_9572  (A funny side note about running- at practice they have the kids run to the fence and back – most of the team gets there before AB gets halfway, so when they all turn to run back, she just turns and joins them (even though she’s only made it half way to the fence) – again, totally gets that from her momma.)


Here’s the crew that ordered the “parent shirts” – they’re super cute and have AB’s number/name on the back…12

Mamie loves watching practice (or at least playing on my phone while we wait) :) and really does so good- she did great at the game, too. She yells, “YAY!! ANN-Belle!” & “GO DODG-ETS” She also has claimed AB’s little friend, Emma, as her own and yells “GO EE-mah”

DSC_9540DW told AB we’d take her anywhere she wanted for dinner that night to celebrate as long as she did her best and played with a good attitude. She got her dinner, but only because we overlooked the part where during the second inning, a ball rolled by her and she missed it and then got mad, so she took her glove off and threw it on the ground. (I wish I could say I didn’t laugh, but it was hilarious!) The game got a little long for her and a few times we caught her pulling her hat down over her eyes, too. We’re all a little anxious to see how the season is going to play out once it gets really hot out there. Ha.

Her first game was really cute and we’re super proud of our big girl. We’re just going to work on curbing that little temper. ;)


It was a sweet way to spend a Saturday morning for sure!

Another Friday is here. The weeks are just flying by!

- I am 20 weeks through this pregnancy this week (HALF WAY!!!) although I seriously look like I could deliver any day. AB has started calling me her “big ole Momma” – yes, she’s such a joy. Ha. Our BIG sonogram is scheduled for Tuesday morning. We’re so excited to find out what we’re having and to see how our family will be completed. There’s serious sweetness in knowing this it for us. (Not because I mind being pregnant, I’ve always loved it). But, I’ve enjoyed this pregnancy more than any of the others (even though I’ve stayed sick with sinus infections, colds, etc…) simply because I know how special it is. This is the very last time I’ll do this. I feel little kicks and flutters and can hardly wait for some big jabs. Somebody remind me of that in another month or so when I’m convinced I’m carrying Jackie Chan.

- AB is staying (and keeping us) busy these days with dance and T-Ball. T-Ball is going to deserve a post all it’s own soon. 1We had our first scrimmage game last night and it was Adorable (note the capital A!). 8Our first real game is tomorrow morning and we’ll have quite the cheering section there, I’m sure, to cheer her on. We seriously have the cutest team imaginable. It’s made up of kids of lots of people we know, most of who went to school with DW and I just love it. The kids are all so cute and such good kids, too. All of the Daddies who can, help out at practice and most nights it looks like we have just as many Dads as kids on the field. It’s so sweet.

- We made a weekend trip a couple weeks back to Georgia for DW’s PaPa’s 86th birthday party. 4

He’s the only one in his family to ever live that long, and told Devin’s mom he wanted to celebrate! Love it! 10It was also Elliot’s 16th birthday, so they’d gotten a cake for him, too.


The highlight of the trip for AB, was the games of pecan t-ball she got in with her Daddy & Uncle Adam. Grandma has a pecan tree in her front yard, so AB found a stick to use for her bat, and had DW & Adam pitching and catching for her. :)


- If Mamie wakes up on her own, she’ll call for me and say “Momma, are you?” Yesterday she was calling me and when I went in her room, this is how I found her. 9She said, “I wearin’ a hat, Momma, see?” She’s so silly and keeps me laughing.


Happy Weekend!
