It was finally time for Tyson to play t-ball. We were all excited. I had dreamt of him in a little baseball uniform since the day I found out he was a boy.
He ended up on the Reds team which was awesome and a great excuse to purchase a new Reds shirt for the family members that did not have one. We have lived in Cincinnati far too long to not own one and now we finally do thanks to t-ball. He had a choice between #9 and #1 and he chose 9 because he wanted "to be the biggest number I can".
It was so fun watching him in action. He is such a social guy and made friends with his teammates right away.
He is typically a happy-go-lucky guy but the happy went up a few notches that night.
He was happy to pose for me whenever he had a chance.
Love that face.
It was unseasonably cold the night of his first game so his fans were bundled up.
Mia grabbed a quick hug when she had a chance.
As he waited for his turn at bat, he would pretend the bat was a guitar. His teammates liked the idea and quickly followed suit.
Violet was quite entertaining as well with her peek-a-booing.
My favorite was when Tyson would practice before the ball was even on the tee. He would make sound effects and act as if he knocked it out of the park. I just love him so much.
And each time he gets on base, he makes conversation with whoever is around. He is so encouraging to all the other players which made us so proud!
Basically, watching him play t-ball is my very favorite thing right now. He says he can't wait for the "real deal" when he gets to hit an actual pitch...
