Saturday evening I took Liam to a classmates birthday party. It was my first of the kind, and I was super nervous & anxious about it. I didn't know the mom at all, and I'm actually really shy around strangers. Liam fell asleep on the drive to the party, so he was a hot mess upon being woken up. Nothing like meeting new people while your child is crying and sleepy. Luckily, I did have one mom friend there, so that helped to fill the silence in some of those more awkward moments. I know that this is just the beginning of these types of events, so I really need to get used to it.
Sunday was our best day!!! Conor had purchased a t-ball set for Liam in anticipation of him joining a league this May. Why yes, yes we are the parents that practice with our kid beforehand. Liam loves everything about it, which is exactly what we hoped for. He takes his gear very seriously and is always wanting to play. He takes instruction quite well and really tries to listen & improve. We went to a nearby park and played for hours. He would hit a couple balls and then run the bases. He was so so tired, but would only sit down at a our picnic for a few minutes before hitting the field again. Sometimes practicing without us. He would tell me "one more bite, and then I'll be up at bat!"
Finn was content to crawl around in the dirt and chase down a baseball every so often. Another boy who is just happy to be in the outdoors. Conor was in heaven too, reliving the "glory days." I couldn't help but smile nonstop seeing all my boys out on the field together. I am always surprised by how quickly Liam is growing and what he is capable of. He is fast & strong. And his hair just happens to flip out perfectly underneath his baseball cap, which is about the cutest thing ever. Number one fan right here!
