It's October

For some people that means changing leaves and sweaters and apple cider and pumpkins. For me, it means late nights. Specifically staying up to watch the Yankees in the play-offs (like I'm doing right now).

And so to get everyone excited about October baseball, here is just a sampling of the things I've picked up for the future baby (who really does need a nickname -- any suggestions? :)

And not everything I have is baseball-related. Honest.

This is the very first thing I bought.

Ten years ago, I was home from Baltimore for Christmas. And my niece Jenny and I were doing a late-night Wegmans run when we saw this in the clearance basket.

"You have to buy it, just for the principle of it," she told me. I was 30 years old and babies were the furthest thing from my mind, but I bought it.

Over the years, I've collected lots of baseball-related things.

Books and a Babe Ruth night light....

...a rattle and a bath mitt....

...onesies (and I love that this one says "mom" on it)...

...t-shirts and jerseys....

....and a Babe Ruth rubber duckie.

And for when we visit Aunt Lesley and Uncle Ziemann, and go to Camden Yards -- and the Orioles are not playing the Yankees...

  1. OMG cute.. and I love, love, love the color red. I hope you have a boy. .. not that a little girl won't love that nighlight, etc, but I just see a boy over the moon about everything. :-) The rubber duck, and bath mitt and rattle are too cute. You definitely need a baby. :-)
