Jacob experienced America's pastime Saturday when we took him to his first baseball game (sorry, Mark). We went with some of our friends to the Nashville Sounds game, the triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. We were worried before the game that he would start to get fussy by the third inning because of the heat or the noise and we would have to go home. We were pleasantly surprised to see him act so calm for about 99 percent of the time. He only cried when he was hungry, tired or needed a new diaper. The temperature was perfect during the evening double-header and the noise didn't seem to bother him. He was so tired by the end of the night that he managed to sleep during the fireworks display. Every loud boom did startle him, but he didn't cry. Erin covered his ears. During the game he loved to look at the big green field, the bright lights and all the people around us. We're looking forward to taking him to more games.
