Something to match his eyes

James and I ran some errands after work. This can be some what more of a challenge these days because I'm still not allowed to lift anything heavier than a milk jug. Trying to convince James to get in and out of the car and car seat is a challenge in its self. But when we had to run into Walmart for some things, I wasn't able to lift him in the cart. So that meant I had to put total trust in him that he'd hold my hand as we walked through Walmart for a few things. He did so well that he got a treat at the end. A nice big blueberry push pot. His tongue and lips soon matched his gorgeous blue eye. Don't you agree?

Sunday marks Opening Day of Baseball...even at the Hallam House

Jimmy has been so excited that baseball season is now officially here. And not only because he gets to obsess about the San Diego Padres for the next 7 months, but he is stoked to start teaching James how to play baseball. We've learned that we can get James into baseball camps at age three, but he'll have to wait till his four years old to actually play t-ball. That gives Jimmy two years to get James prepared for what Jimmy plans to be James’ career path. LOL isn’t that every fathers dream for their son. Anyway, Sunday I was out with a friend and left the boys home alone. I called Jimmy from the store because I came across this really cute t-ball set that I thought would be really cute for James for Easter. I called Jimmy to see what he thought and apparently he thought it was a great idea….so great that he and James had already been to the store and back with a new t-ball set. So later that evening, we got James out in the front yard and played a little baseball. Not sure if every two year old has this great of an attention span, but I have to say that James did GREAT! Jimmy taught James the basics: stance, grip on the bat, the swing, ball transfer from the glove to throwing, and grounders. Watching the two of them made me so excited for all the years to come of little league. Enjoy the pictures.
