I hope you all have a great day and you let your loved ones know they are loved! We as a family will celebrate when we are together again and us three are looking forward to it! Ace and I are digging into our gift basket daddy sent us. Ace is feeding me caramel corn as I type, thanks honey! We love you and miss you our hearts will be complete when we are together!!! Happy heart day and share it with your loved ones!
Ace is getting big fast! He now has over 5 little cars in which he adores! His favorite is his Winnie the Pool car, that plays music! He is adding more words to his vocabulary every day, truck, read, red, blue, and eat. He walks around the house shouting mom, mom, its so cute! He points out every truck with excitement, I think because he knows his daddy has a truck. We think he is saying at times Prada (my dogs name), grandma, and grandpa too. He is coming along. He makes the fire engine sound, meows like a cat, moos like a cow, and much more. He has so many signs too its incredible, we play charades everyday!
I had a moment yesterday... I was at a park in La Mirada, where I grew up, pitching to my dad with my mom looking on holding the radar gun. In the back ground was my Grandma holding Prada watching Ace ride his car around the sidewalk. It reminded me just how much I've been blessed with! Here I am going on over 20 years of being able to play catch with my dad! I just walked off the field with a big grin, so grateful and so thankful!
We head out to Arizona next for our opener against the U of A. We are looking forward to having another team to play and for me going home. I love practice but it helps when you mix a game in here and there! It is crazy to think we are less than 7 months away from the games. We are training hard looking forward to the Bound for Beijing tour across the country. I continue to be so honored and grateful to play for the USA and with my teammates! This is such a great game, I love it! I look forward to the many memories we will make this year as a team and all the many people we will meet as we prepare to win the Gold!
Its about the time to shut the lights out and get Ace settled!
Lots of Love!
