All this for a team that is 0-6

Jack and I were out all day Saturday. "All day" is defined as 9:30 AM until 5 PM. He didn't fuss once. In fact, he's even got a bit of a cold and he was still happy the entire day. I am the luckiest mom in the world.

We went to Lansing in order to find ONE THING. I knew I'd be buying Jack some summer clothes too, but there was ONE THING I was specifically looking for: A Detroit Tigers shirt in his size. Not just any shirt . . . I have some qualifications for this shirt. First, in must be a t-shirt, not a onesie. Second, it must be 18 - 24 months (I'd even take a 2T if I had to). Third, I want it to be simple . . . blue with the white English "D" on the front or maybe just the "Tigers" moniker on it. The only one I've seen that I really like is one that says, "My first tigers t-shirt" but he had one like that last year . . . and I feel like it would be dishonest to get him another.

I looked all over Jackson on Friday, but I couldn't find anything. Now, if you would like to don your child in NASCAR apparel, that's another story. You can find tons of infant NASCAR apparel. This fact alone should give you a sort of mental picture of where I live.

We did find a Tigers' hat and decided to go with that. He won't keep it on, but he looks great holding it!

Now, I'm not usually a fan of props in my photos. But I couldn't get him to stand/sit still for more than .05 seconds without giving him something to play with/sit on. The bat that he's holding in some of the photos I took was a gift that Kyle got when he was the best man in a wedding almost 5 years ago.

You can see more pictures of Jack's 10th month here.

Because I'm an insane baseball fan, I think that your efforts automatically just made you Mom of the Year!
