And Another in the Week of Firsts

August 20th, 2006

We took Kenny to his first Oriole’s game last night… I can honestly say that I’ve never seen that little guy so happy!   So much to see, to hear, to smell, to taste… he was in his element.   And later on we found out that he was featured for about 10 seconds on the television broadcast of the 15-0 (O’s!) game.

He  got the hang of clapping right  away… my goodness, with a run-away game  like the O’s had last night, it was easy to catch on to cheering!   He loved the music,  especially the Latin-inspired music they play when  Tejada  and Mora are up to bat.   He already knows “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” and when that played, he got this euphoric look on his little face, and gazed wide-eyed at me as if to say, “Mommy!   They know our song!”

He ate a large portion of a soft pretzel, in amidst the handfuls of cheerios disguised as if they came out of the peanut bag we were munching on, and at least half of my veggie burger (go figure), inspiring me to piggy-back on this new-found way of stealthfully sneaking vegetables into his body.

All in all, it was a perfect night – warm with a cool breeze, a winning game and a great family outing.

In other news, he’s continued to walk a few steps at a time here and there… of course, never when the video camera is anywhere near by.   We even tried letting the camera run for awhile today, but I think he was on to our ruse, because all he wanted to do at that point was sit quietly and read books.

My little guy is growing up.   Where once sat a tiny baby, now there is a little boy with all his precious personality bursting forth.   We’re closing in on the First Year.   How can time fly so fast?

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Maybe Kenny is the O’s good luck charm. 😮
