We've been encouraging him to wear his cap for the past couple of weeks in hopes that he'll get used to it and actually want to wear it. It's a little bit big and so sometimes it droops down in front of his eyes and so he has to tip his head backwards to try and see out from underneath it. So funny.
So today a spring training game was on TV - unfortunately right during naptime so we DVR'd the whole 3 hours to show him later. Right before bedtime we remembered we wanted to show him, so we put it on and let me tell you he could barely contain his excitement. This was him:
"bay-ball?" -points to the tv, looks questioningly at me-
"bay-ball?!" -points to the tv, points to the Angels logo on his pajamas, looks excitedly at Marc-
"BAYYYY-BALLLL???!!!" -starts running around the family room swinging his bat and throwing his baseball off the walls, putting both arms up in the air and shouting "hoooo-ruuuuunnn!", searching frantically for his mitt and his cap-
So maybe it wasn't the greatest idea to show him right before bedtime, as it got him all souped up and wanting to watch the whole 3 hour game. I had to drag him away from it and believe me - he wasn't happy about it.
I think tomorrow we'll be trading in Backyardigans for some tape-delayed, spring training, B-squad Angels baseball.
