For the last month or so I've been assisting a wonderful couple find a new home. As we've gotten to know each other, I was delighted to find that not only are they the parents of darling little Noah, they are huge Ken Griffey, Jr. fans. In fact, the first time I chatted with them prior to their move to Washington, Dad was absolutely certain that four-month old Noah already knew how to play catch! As the proud grandma of our own little Tyler, just one month ahead of Noah, I decided it was time to get baseball hats for (12 comments)
