First Baseball Game

We were invited to a Tacoma Rainier's game today.  It was a little rainy, so we didn't stay for the whole thing--actually, we arrived late and left early--but we had a good time!  The tickets were for a party deck, so the BBQ lunch was complimentary.  Micah had a hot dog and Levi had a hamburger.  Typical Levi, he ate the gigantic bun first and then eventually started munching on the tiny burger patty.  Although is was during Micah's usual naptime, he seemed to enjoy watching the game.  Levi barely noticed the game.  Thank you, Grannie and Grandpa, for inviting us!

On the way home from the game, I asked Levi if he wanted to be a baseball player.  "No!"  How about a basketball player?  "Yeah!"  What about a football player?  . . . Mumbling . . . not yes or no.  That's fine with me.  Given his Garrett-family physic, I think we're looking at basketball or football anyway.  But that's if he's not playing trumpet in the pep band!

Going for a stroll with Grannie

Micah was very interested in the on-site ambulance.  The medics in the cab didn't mind his inspections.

Levi's turn for a stroll.  The baseball mosaics are nice.

Ethan found Micah's weak spots for tickling.  This was ADORABLE!

Garret greeted us at the front door in this get-up.  He was ready to play Risk and take over the world by force.

Micah is so happy when he can play with handfuls of dirt.

Nothing Much

The boys helped me make banana bread today.  They actually helped!  Micah loved mixing the dry ingredients and then pouring baking soda into and out of various measuring cups and spoons.  Levi knows that he can lick the beater if he helps, so he was on his best behavior.
Levi made turtles as Mother's Day gifts.
We had some hot weather this past week.  Micah really disliked walking barefoot in the grass, so he got to wear a diaper and shoes.
I couldn't convince either of them to play much in the water.  For the longest time, the closest they got was tossing little toys into the baby bumblebee pool.  Eventually, Levi started running through the sprayer, and Micah stuck his hands and face in it.
A new fun game for one or both of them: playing in the pantry, with the door either open or closed!
They get along well when they're playing in the sensory box.  Today they were using dry beans.

Sixteen Months Old

Micah turned sixteen months old today.  And it's Mother's Day.
I am so blessed with my two amazing boys!

Micah often falls asleep in the car after we've run errands.

I'm starting to realize that the days of having a little one toddling around in just a diaper will be over before I know it.  It's just precious to see those chubby little legs crawling up the stairs!

A little fun in the sun.  These two play remarkably well together
as long as they can pour sand all over one another's legs!
