Move over Johnny Damon...

...because the hottest baseball player in the league is now Nathan Snelders!!! Get in line ladies, he is only 5 years old!
Nathans smallest...but loudest fan!

Look at the wind up!

He can hit, run, and field the ball after 1 practice. This kid is AMAZING!

Nice hit!!

This is Scott's favorite picture of the night! Look at the power leg move!

Nathan started t-ball last Tuesday night and he was SO excited. He followed me around all day and was anxious to go to his first practice. After asking me four times if it was time to leave to go to practice he stopped and looked at me and said, "What IS practice?" This made me chuckle! We went to a get pictures on Saturday and then stayed and played some games the the Baseball extravaganza they set up to help the program earn a little money. I was pretty proud of myself because I took all 3 kids by myself and we were on time and then played games for an hour before Zach was done.
Then Monday night was the big night! It was game time and Nate was still unsure of what the difference was between a game and practice. He quickly found out that playing the game was ALOT more fun. We were very proud of him because he was aggressive and went after the ball everytime it even got close to him. There was a few times the boys dog-piled trying to get the ball--and not one kid was worried about the runner. It was so fun. Much less stressfull than soccer! We decided we like being t-ball parents!

Our little man is growing up!

Trying new foods is always a treat!
Zach has mastered sitting up but still tips over occasionally.

Zach just turned 8 months old and we thought this would be the perfect time to brag about all that he has accomplished so far. We have introduced solid foods over the past 2 months and he has some favorites and some...not so favorites. I would say some of his favorites are squash, applesauce, bananas, and oatmeal. Zach doesn't like the prune/apple combo we tried this week. I have been trying for 3 days to get him to finish off 1 container and it's a NO-GO. However, no matter what anyone is eating, Zach notices and wants to taste everything!! (He's like his Mom and doesn't want anyone to eat alone!)
Zach is growing like a weed now with all his new found favorite foods and now weighs almost 16 lbs. He loves his big brother. Nathan is probably the one that gets the most laughs out of Zach when he is being silly. Brittanie treats Zach like her own real life cabbage patch doll and has been caught more than once packing him around when she's not suppose to. It seems like just yesterday we were debating over baby names and now little "Nacho" is here. What JOY this little man has brought to our home!
