Until tonight, I would have said that Jacob Genos was the littlest Indian fan I knew (he's the 1-year-old son of our youth pastors Matt and Jenny, who are also die hard Cleveland fans). But as I sit here tonight, watching game 5 of the ALCS playoffs -- timeout! Tribe is now up 6-0 after a 3-run homer in the 5th!!! -- anyways, I digress. I'm sitting here and Sprout is just thumping away in my belly, and I think Jacob has to relinquish his title.
Sprout's been so active today -- he woke me up at 3:45 this morning, and has been non-stop since. But it's been mostly normal rolls and kicks, varying if I'm sitting or standing, or if I need to eat or pee. But tonight, as I've been watching the game, he has started a new pattern: still and quiet when Boston is up to bat (which is fitting, as their bats have been silent! ha!), and as soon as the Indians are at the plate.... thump, thump, thump. It's probably all in my head, I know. But I'm touched, as I sit here, hoping -- just hoping -- that this little boy might have some Samas in him after all.
Gregory genes are so dominant -- just look at the resemblance between Jim and his dad! -- that I have no doubt I'm growing Jim's mini-me. =) But just maybe, our son will be a night owl like me, and I'll actually have some company after 9 pm. If he like Cleveland baseball....that's even better. (Lord knows, he won't be allowed to be a Browns fan!)
It's now 7-0, 2 outs in the bottom of the 5th, but I'll sign off for now. Go Tribe!
