Milestones, Milestones, all the Time...

Yesterday marked the last day of Instructional T Ball and the end of the "first loose tooth" era. My big boy was so excited for both! He was shocked (his new vocabulary word! haha) that he was given a trophy. The other exciting part of the afternoon was that his team actually played against another team. It was very friendly and encouraging (no scores, coaches from both sides helping the kiddos). It was maybe the cutest thing I have seen in a while!!
Devin had a lot of spectators yesterday- Papa, Abuela and Grandpa, and Uncle Brian and Aunt Courtney all came to cheer him on!
The Tooth Fairy brought him a dollar and a quarter during the night. Devin couldn't be happier about that!

Double Milestones

I was already feeling a bit emotional on the way to Devin's Pre-K graduation....realizing that he was about to start his "elementary school career" when he announced that he has a wiggly tooth. His FIRST wiggly tooth.

"No! Not today!" was my first thought. I just didn't think I could handle anymore milestones occurring on this day. *Sigh*

But alas, I have no choice.Today Devin graduated from pre-k and got his first loose tooth. My baby is getting so big, so fast. I have such a desire for the baby-ness to still be in the house but I know that I can not hold Devin back. He is ready for Kindergarten, smiles with "windows," sports teams, and play dates without Mom. I'm happy and yet so sad.

One for Him and One for Me

Devin's 5th trip to the dentist. Cleanest teeth the Hygienist had seen all week! She even let him operate "Mr. Thirsty."Awwwww! One of my almost first graders wrote this about me today. (I only had to help him with the "ch" sound.I think my job with him is done!) Not bad, eh?

Sunday Afternoons

We've all been enjoying Sunday afternoon T- Ball.

Devin likes having the opportunity to learn and grow and be with the other players. I have seen Devin hit the ball, catch, and throw the ball (what an arm!). I've also seen Devin write his initials in the sand at short stop, stand on the bench in the dugout while waiting for his turn, and sometimes trot, sometimes run the bases. Erick is enjoying his role as an Assistant Coach. I've seen Erick struggle to keep the attention of 5 4/5 year olds (I think he better appreciates MY job now- ha!), give players the encouragement that they need to "stick with it" and just enjoy himself while he helps the kids.I love watching it all.

There are only 2 practices left and I am sure that Devin will be asking for more when its done. He will have to wait for fall, though, when soccer will begin on Saturday mornings!

Devin made this project at school. He said its for me because "I love you and you always respect me and you take care of me."

Awwwww! How do they know just when to melt our hearts?
