Play Ball

A day my sweet baby has dreamt of for three years has finally come – opening day of his very first baseball season!  He took his time on the field more seriously than anything he’s ever done in his precious four years on earth.  He listened, tried his hardest and had a whole lot of fun.

It was the little moments like these that made my heart swell and my eyes fill.  The child has awaited this moment since the day he could lift a bat.  And to see him there on the field with his daddy showing him the ropes was just incredible.  After six seasons of watching brother from the bleachers, our little Whit finally had his much deserved day in the sun!

His best friend from school is on the team and one of my very bff’s little one is as well.  It is so sweet to see these little friendships budding.

Later in the day, we headed back to the field for the PCP’s game.  It was the first one I made it to since the beginning of their season was postponed due to weather and then I was in Savannah after that.  There are first, second and third graders on his team so he was thrilled to get to spend a little time at third base.

John and his bestie O – they don’t go to school together and some days I think he only plays baseball to get to see this kid :-)

  1. Yeah for Whit! I know that it can be so hard for younger siblings to just have stay on the side-lines and watch. And I know how hard that can be for energic little boys. S I am very happy to see that he "finally" gets to play ball!!!

  2. Our three-year-old started t-ball this year and while at three he's not QUITE getting the hang of it yet, it has been SO much fun to watch. Our opening day is Saturday! Eeek!

  3. Your boys are so adorable! The phone is going to be ringing like crazy when they're teenagers!

  4. That is so exciting for Whit! My poor Peanut is dying to play t-ball but alas nothing starts around here until Kindergarten. Hubby is going to try to work his magic and get him into golf over the summer though.


  5. I love this time of yr, I remember when I started playing softball at age 8 I was so excited I slept with my glove under my pillow. My daughter played T-ball and I helped coach her team when she was 5, wow 20 yrs ago. My brother and me played ball when we were kids, my dad coached, and my mom was team mom, the whole summer was spent at the ball field. I got great memories of my summers playing ball. You will look back at this time in their lives with great memories too. Enjoy it.
