A.J.'s first word

In the interests of just remembering (because I almost forgot the sound that A.J. made as a really small infant when he was hungry -- "DEET DEET!"). A.J. said his first real word on Thanksgiving.

This is something that I think our baseball crew can appreciate.

I was watching him in his room early in the morning, while he was crawling around -- essentially looking for new ways to imperil himself or get himself into trouble (his new pasttime).

So, he is attempting to crawl behind his rocking chair (presumably to get to an electrical socket, I think), when all of the sudden, he sees this big stuffed baseball hiding under his bassinet (which is now used as a toy storage unit until we get an alternative).

He smiles immediately at the sight of the stuffed baseball, and to my amazement, he lets out a "ball."

And, me -- the proud daddy -- I open my mouth to yell to Marie... but I'm so kvelling with pride that it takes me a good 5 seconds to get anything out.
