Beach Bum

Our little beach bum baby had so much fun on the beach! He LOVED the water and the sand immediately. I was worried about how he would do with the sand and the ocean because he was scared of the ocean last summer (loved the beach, hated the ocean). But, there was no need to worry about how he would like it. I needed to worry though because he has NO FEAR of the ocean! He would just walk right in until we stopped him or grabbed his hand. He would grab Daddy or Granddaddy's hand to lead them out into the deeper water!

Little Bam Bam:
Connor has become attached at the hip to his huge wiffle ball bat. Connor has several small bats that are just his size, but he LOVES his big wiffle ball bat that Granddaddy got him (after he played with his cousins' bat and would not give it back)! So, we took the bat to the beach. We thought we would play with the bat and ball up in the sand, but Connor wanted to play with it in the water, too! He even took it to the pool. He has learned that the big bat is an outdoor bat, but he LOVES it and wants to play with it all the time. He can basically throw the ball up and hit it himself! He throws the ball towards the bat and hits it over and over and over again! It is really cute to watch. He has pretty impressive hand eye coordination!

Beach Pictures

We went to the beach with my family this past week. We headed down to the beach one night to take some pictures of the three of us.

Harper's Birthday Party

We headed to B'ham last weekend for Harper's 4th Birthday Party! It was at a gymnastics facility and the kids were allowed free play for the first 45 minutes or so. Connor had so much fun! He was actually pretty good at the balance beam (while holding my hands), he loved running down the trampoline (and running everywhere else), and had so much fun climbing on all of the mats! Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of the birthday girl. I was too busy chasing Connor, so Daddy took these pictures, but I forgot to get any of Harper!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
-Jack Norworth

Connor had SO much fun at his first Atanta Braves game! And, he was SO good the whole night! We arrived a little late, so Connor got seated with Granddaddy, while Sunshine, Jane Anne, and I headed to get hot dogs. It was way past Connor's normal dinner time, but he did not seem to notice! He ended up letting us sit ino our seats all the way until the 5th inning...much longer than I had expected. He ate, watched people, tomahawk chopped, and enjoyed Sunshine and Granddaddy before deciding it was time to walk around! During the 5th inning, Sunshine, Jane Anne, and I took Connor, Mills, Andrew, and Davis up to the "big coke" to "run the bases." Connor got to run the base, too. He loved it! Later, we headed down to first level for the big boys to hit in the batting cages and throw the baseball in the cages. Connor did not understand why he could not go in the cage and throw the ball like the big boys. I had to take him away before he got upset or barged his way in the cage! We found the Cartoon Network Tooner Field area for kids and ended the game playing in it. There was a miniture field for kids to play wiffle ball. Connor loved running the bases with Granddaddy. He had so much fun the whole night! We finally left the game around 11:00 p.m. and he was still wide awake and happy as can be! He zonked out around 11:30 on the ride home and slept past 9:30 the next morning!

I cannot wait for our next chance to go to a game with Connor. We wish Daddy could have gone with us, but hopefully next time!

Go Braves!
