1, 2, 3, Goooooo Redwings!

Elena decided she wanted to play t-ball this summer (like brother, like sister!). She is playing on a 3-year-old team through the YMCA, and she is the only girl on her team. Since she didn't actually turn 3 until the 2nd or 3rd week of the season, she is also the littlest one out there. Does she know that? Doubtful. She LOVES playing with "my boys", and she also loves being the representative-of-pink of the team. In fact, when we talked about signing her up, we dug out Elias' first glove for her to use. She quickly pushed it away and said confidently, "Ummmm, I think I need a PINK one. And a PINK hat." After a quick trip to Academy, she was set to go. (aren't you proud, Kirsten?!)
Her team is the Redwings, which is pretty cool considering her fascination with birds! Here are some pics from the most recent game...

"Hi Mommy!"

C'mon, ball!

Got milk?

All the moms thought it was great that she gave me a little pose before her swing.


This is FUN!

Elena has an awesome stance in the box :) Did AJ teach her that?

Aunt Jenny said...

She is ADORABLE! Great swing. (Don't those other moms know that Elena is a professional model? Of course she posed for a picture before her swing!)
