Basketball Star

January 30, 2011

This weekend we were in Atlanta for my friend Delaine’s wedding. After Hana Kate and I watched the bride walk down the aisle, we headed out to the church’s playground get some fresh air and get some energy out. (The church also had a pool; too bad we didn’t get to try that out! :)) I was trying to get some pictures of Hana Kate, and when she picked up a ball I decided to take a video of her playing. Randomly, she headed to the basketball hoop and attempted to give it her best shot. She was as stunned as I was. I really wish I’d kept the camera filming, because after standing there for several seconds she started yelling out, “I did it! I did it!”

To my knowledge, this is the first time she’s attempted to do this (other than a tiny version at a friend’s house when she was under a year). We don’t have a TV, and she hasn’t seen much live sports action (yet!), I’m afraid. So I thought it was interesting that she knew just what to do. The look on her face was priceless. 🙂 She’s still 1 for 1, because she didn’t want to try it again; other toys were too attractive, I guess. We need to work on that form, too….

    Love this. I shudder to think what would have happened had we tried to videotape KM’s first shot…:) Good form, Hana Kate!! 🙂

      That’s what makes it so funny to me: the randomness of it all! I’m pretty sure we could never duplicate this. 🙂
