Are You Ready for Some Football?

For Zach, the Bear's season opener is better than Christmas.  Staley can't make that distinction for herself yet since she hasn't experienced her first Christmas, but she definitely enjoyed her first Bear's opening day.  First, Staley got to watch a little television (which we NEVER let her do), so that was a special treat.  She was also intrigued (and giggly) when Zach jumped up, spiked his football pillow, cheered, or did a victory dance. Staley always loves having family play time, so even though we were watching the game, Staley enjoyed sitting on the floor with us while playing with her toys.  And, of course, Staley couldn't have been more pleased with how well the Bears played.  She had lots of opportunities to practice her clapping.  And we started working with her on high fives, fist bumps, and signaling touchdowns.  (Hopefully she'll have plenty of opportunities to practice these over the coming weeks as well.)  I can't agree that opening day is better than Christmas, but it's a close second.

Rally cap!

Staley and Daddy glued to the game.

She wasn't quite as interested last season.

  1. GO BEARS!!! I absolutely love these pictures, makes me miss the ol days of watching football at the Sanckens...little confused on the rally cap one though, not sure what Cutler and company were supposed to rally from. I'll just assume Staley was distraught that they weren't on pace to match my 77-10 opening game prediction:D
