Growing Boys...

For both boys, I've done portraits at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months... after that it's a yearly thing... here is Josiah at 9 months and Jared at almost 3 years.

Family Fun Night

A local gymnastics club hosts a family fun night once a month and we try to take the boys whenever we can... here they are at the recent one.


Although Jared is only 2 (although he will be 3 in July), I thought it would be a neat experience to let him play t-ball in the YMCA league this summer. The league is for kids between 3 and 5 but they made an exception and let Jared play. It's really casual, so I figured it would be fine even though it's probably a little early for organized sports!

Even though his attention span isn't really long enough for a full game, he ended up having a great time. Here are a few pics of his first game.

Go Pirates! :)

"Dad, can you help me get my glove on?"

"Daddy, practice with me before the big game!"

A little pre-game pep talk!

"Okay-- I think I am ready now..."

"Mom, wish me luck! I am up at bat!"

"Wait.... NOW I am ready! GO PIRATES!"

"Okay, Dad! I know what to do now! Let me hit the ball! "

"Okay, Dad-- I am running as fast as I can! First base, here I come"

"Whew, I am tired! Can I get some Gatorade?"

"I am beat now! Can we go home?"
