Because she had several decent naps today, I feared allowing her to sleep through the whole game. That much sleep might prevent her from actually sleeping well at night. So we woke her up before the game, and I fed her, then we headed in. The lights, the band, the fans...all were new and fascinating to our daughter. As I held her in my arms, she looked around with an alertness that has been building each day. It was difficult for me to watch the players because I enjoyed watching her ponder the world around her.
Of course, it was fun to go to the game, but even more, I liked having our daughter with us, absorbing all that she could. I'm sure we will take her to many more events that she will find entertaining. But I can't help but thinking that her adventures will be much more fabulous for her father and me.
