Rylen has begun showing his deep appreciation for baseball lately. He has cried a few times when the baseball games went to commercial and just recently started "pitching" us the ball. A couple of weeks ago, we pulled out a birthday gift that we had kept until later from his closet. It was an astros bat and ball. This bat has become quite a necessity when Daddy turns on the game. Rylen has quite a good swing with even a kick in it. Once he "hits" the ball, he has to run to his base. So funny, how kids pick up the fundamentals of a game just from watching!
