Camden Loves the Game!

For anyone who believes 16 month olds don't take in their surroundings more than anyone else . . .get this. . . these pictures were taken at 10:15 last night. Thankfully, Camden had taken a good nap. The bigs were spending the night with Khaki and Papa and Camden sat down to "play ball" at approximately 10:04. OR, at least that's when Jeff asked me "Hey, how long do you think we've been doing this? About 3 minutes?" I said, "Oh yea, at least 3 or 4 minutes." So, we all 3 played and played for the longest time. Amazingly, Camden has a pretty good arm. We joke with Griffin all the time that after watching all these hundreds of ballgames that Griffin plays, Camden will be the one to go to the major leagues because he's learned so much from Grif. And sure 'nuff. . . his arm is that of a 3 year old. Pretty precise throws, right to us. Jeff was thrilled. And you ask, how long did this go on? We timed it at about 24 minutes!! Yep, i'd say the boy can "attend to a task." Check that one off the developmental checklist. He would shag the balls he overthrew and sit right back down at "his place" and start throwing again. It was so much fun, and the only reason we quit, was because he was spending as much time rubbing his sleepy eyes as he was throwing the ball by about 10:22!
