We decided since the weather was so nice we needed to have our first at home practice! Noah was awesome at batting! He really does have good hand-eye coordination. He loved hitting and wanted to go get the ball every time he hit it (something he will see he cannot do once he is playing with other kids). Catching was more difficult. He can get it front of it and get to the ball, he just cannot properly catch it yet. But, he is stopping the ball, and in t-ball their hands are so small and the glove and ball are so big it is awkward to do it properly.
|The ball did not hit him in the head - but he didn't catch it either :)|
I cannot wait to get him his first little bat and helmet - he is going to be adorable if nothing else :) He got a glove for Christmas from Nathans parents so he is good there. Nathan was a good ball player growing up and I played softball for 9 years and wasn't terrible (no matter what Nathan says). Contrary to popular belief, I am not totally unathletic so Noah does have a chance at being descent :)
I am signing him up this week and cannot wait to watch a very entertaining year of t-ball! I have put the warning out to friends and family, this is for fun and will most likely not be pretty, but very fun to watch! If you don't like that sort of thing, don't come, but you will miss out for sure :)
