Take Me Out To The Ball Game...

Today we spent the morning watching the boys play their Tball games at the BIG softball complex where Richard plays Thursday nights. 

They were very excited and thought they were pretty hot stuff.

Last night they laid out their tball shirts, baseball pants and caps.

Isaac has a red soccer jersey that resembles their tball shirts and thinks it's his tball shirt and made me lay it out for him last night too! I found him snuggling with it this morning and it was the first thing out of his mouth as he sleepily stumbled out of bed!

Elijah went first...

He was only distracted by the dirt and his baseball cap a few times...a common problem for these sweet 5 and 6 year old players. 

Grandma Teresa came to cheer them on too!
(The boys were very excited that she was able to make it)

Jonah was pumped that he was able to play since he has missed out on most of the season due to his injured clavicle. 

Richard was able to make it too!

He and Isaac played a little catch while watching. 

Isaac did very well for the 2 + hours that we were there...

he didn't get silly until the very end!

Jonah did a great job paying attention and hitting the ball 
(the 7 & 8 year olds get pitched to which caused some worry for him as he hasn't practiced much)

Elijah was able to play with the "big boys" at the end when a few of Jonah's teammates had to leave early.  He even hit the ball without the 'tee'!

Here are my boys!

I LOVE this picture! I wish they wouldn't grow up so stinking fast!

8 Months Old

I can't believe this little lady is 8 months old!!!!

She was quite the ham for this photo shoot and she cracked me up!

She is still sweet as can be and her brothers continue to ADORE her and she loves them to pieces. 

They give her quite a bit of attention and are often worried about her well being. 

Her and Isaac are starting to have a few sibling quarrels and I am enjoying watching their relationship. 

It is quite amazing to see such a LARGE 2 year old doting on his sweet petite baby sister. 

I love hearing her giggle and her brothers can make her giggle the most. 

She is getting so LONG and has moved into 12-18 month clothes. 

I love this picture as she looks so innocent!

She isn't moving (crawling) at all and enjoys playing with her toys and sitting up.

She screeches and makes all sorts of noises that will quickly get her brothers attention. 

She also adores her daddy!  If I call him and put him on speaker phone she starts saying "da-da, da-da" and beams! 

 I can't believe how big she is getting and I am just going to stay in denial about her turing one so soon!

I Love you Livie J!

Please don't grow up too fast! I am so thankful for you baby girl!
