This summer at Justin's baseball's games, one of the umpires would bring his wife and baby girl to some of the various games. He would come over to the fence and talk to his baby girl during free moments he had. I watched her watch him. On this particular day, she was very sleepy and obviously needed a nap. But, she sat there in her mom's lap, eye's focused on her daddy. She would nod now and then, someone would make an exciting play, the crowd would cheer and she would again peer out toward her daddy. When blue would make an outstanding OUT, or SAFE, she would again peer in the direction of her daddy. I never thought really, until this season after I witnessed this family interact, about the Umpire. They have familys too. And some have little girls. I chatted with his wife and discovered that he loves his job, umpiring baseball. So, she is sure they will be visiting alot of baeball in the future. So, I thought of doing this layout after taking her picture, she better bloom into baseball baby.......
