Last Saturday, GQ had a double-header baseball game. We were out on the fields for 5 hours but it wasn’t bad at all. The weather was nice and there was a nice steady breeze even though sunny. Unfortunately, GQ’s team lost both games even though they played hard. I downloaded photos in wrong order… but anyway, that’s GQ running through home plate! Go GQ! WOOHOO YAH BABY!!
I didn’t get to watch too much of the games though, because this little one kept me busy.
He is his brother’s biggest fan and the entire baseball complex knows who Bugaboo’s big brother is. Bugaboo screams out his name and will often yell, “Hit ball” “Good job”, or “Run!” It really is the cutest thing. I love how GQ waves to him through the fence or smiles when he hears his little brother shouting his name. Warms my heart.
The other boys on the team joke with him about it and give him a playful hard time, but he still does not mind. He really is the best big brother a little kid could ask for. I love watching them together.
While GQ’s team is out on the field, Bugaboo soon loses interest and finds new “friends” to play with. He is the youngest of the tots in his group but he doesn’t like to think so. He tries to keep up with the rest of them.
His new favorite thing to do to entertain himself is wear his brother’s baseball helmet. He loves those things. Anytime we go to Academy, Dicks, or Target, he knows where to find the baseball helmets and runs over to wear one. He will literally wear one the entire time in the store.
Man-child bought him a glove and helmet for his birthday next week. Can’t wait to see his expression on his face when he gets his OWN helmet that we don’t have to fight him to take off and hide in a store aisle. We no longer (hopefully) will have complete meltdowns in the stores when we have to leave the helmet behind, because this little boy will have his very own! I’m going to video tape him when he gets his helmet and then post it on here. There is no doubt in my mind he will go crazy for it. Hope everyone has a great fun-filled weekend. I’ll see you guys all on Monday!
