jeff recently found a baseball glove at the goodwill near our house and brought it home for finn. ever since, he has been completely obsessed with baseball. the movie 'the sandlot' has been playing on repeat for days, and every night finn now insists on going to bed with his glove on one hand and a ball in the other. i won't lie, i have been using this new love to my advantage - diffusing fights around getting dressed and eating by saying 'lets try on these baseball pants' or 'one more bite so you have extra energy to play baseball!' to which i get an enthusiastic 'OK!' It's pretty amazing to see things like this happen right before your eyes. I can't wait to see all the things he grows up loving.
