Goooo Cawdnals!

Wow, two posts in a row. Thank you, steroids!! Last Wednesday night,whatever you want to call it since it’s now officially after midnight, marked Nut’s annual trip to a St. Louis Cardinals game. For those who haven’t figured it out, we’re diehards in this house so I’m excited I get to pass the obsession love on to my kids even if I do think the team has given me an ulcer this year. Last night was doubly exciting since it was her very first Cub/Cardinal game.  Too bad they lost. Horribly. As I expected. I need my Tums now.

But I digress. I think the medicine has given me some sort of temporary ADD also because I can’t focus for the life of me. Nut absolutely loved it. When we got close enough to STL to see The Arch, she started bouncing in her seat yelling, “Baseball, Mama! Go Cawdnals! Hit da bawl!” I guess since you can see it in the background when they play, she recognized it from TV.  I just couldn’t go to bed tonight without sharing some pics of Nut’s first three games:

September 2008. 6 months old.



September 2009. 18 months old. 



September 2010. 2.5 years old.



I can’t believe how big she’s gotten!!  And just for fun, here’s some cute ones of her enjoying – which she did, let me tell you – the game:

ps: In case you’re wondering why Bug is absent from these photos… well, you’ve read my stories, would you take his squirrely ass somewhere he has to sit still? He can’t even make it three minutes, let alone three hours!!! By next year he should (hopefully) be calmed down enough to go. If not, there’s always HD, little buddy. Just like being there except you’re free to run around the house.


  1. These pictures are adorable! She is such a cutie :)

    I know what you mean about a squirrely baby... Abby CANNOT and WILL NOT sit still!!

  2. It looks like you guys had a blast! What an awesome tradition to have with your little ones. I hope you are saving the ticket stubs too!

  3. I was wondering where you have been!! Working more means less blogging..LOL! OMG, Nut is so cute in her red St. Louis t-shirt. It is great that you are doing things with just her...I am sure she appreciates it, especially now. And, no, I don't think you are going to have Roid Rage..LOL!

  4. What adorable photos! I love the one of her laughing!

  5. The fact that your kids are so stinking cute is enough for me to overlook the fact that your a Cardinals fan! (Go Cubs! Heehee!)
