A Future Ballplayer!

Only today I re-discovered this picture of Malcolm, taken in California in October, 2002, after his first birthday, a picture that foreshadows his love of and skill at baseball!  It was so striking when Malcolm was a baby and toddler--his love of balls! 

I looked quickly through the pictures taken in 2002 and found others.  So this post is going to be pictures of the very young Malcolm.  No doubt I'll have to focus on each of the other three grandchildren in future posts, to keep things fair.

In the picture where he's standing, notice the blue sun-suit that is adorned with a baseball glove and baseball.  And, of course, a ball in each hand, and more on the floor!

Malcolm is not only a great baseball player, but reading is another love!  So perhaps the next picture foreshadows another passion--never mind that the book is upside down!  I took this picture on the day we celebrated his first birthday.  And the big blue ball. . .

And, finally, Christmas of 2002, Malcolm with his old pal Lenny the cat! This picture taken right before Christmas.  Notice--two yellow balls, one in each hand!


  1. These are fabulous shots of Malcolm to go along with your superb, stupendous background. Isn't he a precious guy. Look at that pro warmup for pitching at the top.

  2. So cute. I would love to find that pic of him napping clutching not a blanket or lovie but a BALL. It is funny.

  3. Really adorable. What kissable little cheeks. My favorite is the two balls, two hands and the blue jumper. His expression!

  4. So sweet, Alice. Malcolm will love looking at this blog, I know!
