It's not easy being a Hansen boy. You have a lot of expectations awaiting you before even making your entrance. Example #1: attendance of a Dodgers game at an age younger that your older brother. You can imagine the pressure Deeter has felt- Dallin B made it to a game at 2 weeks and 5 days. Porter beat him out at 2 weeks and 3 days. Little Deeter Bug has been fighting jaundice which restricted his outings as he waited under the lights. But after paying his dues under the lights, along with some all-natural basking-

he was prepared to leave the house for a long period of time. And really I don't know why he was rushing himself as he still had 4 days to spare. But at 1 week and 6 days, he made it to his first ball game. And, as you see eyeballs, he actually stayed awake for some of it.

We all loved hanging out with him.

That being said, if we choose to have another child, the precedent has been set. That means a lot of things have to work in our favor in order to have the tradition continue. For instance this next child really would need to be born between May and August to ensure a good amount of accessible games. April or September would be pushing it. Porter was lucky that there was a play off game to go to. Otherwise he would've been out of luck. Then we need our baby to be super healthy at birth to be able to go out almost immediately. I mean, we might have to catch a game on the way home from the hospital. And assuming all that comes together, it will have beat the record and we'll be absolutely resigned to ending our family there. Too much pressure for the next one.

These last couple weeks have been filled with many precious moments. Here's one of them!


  1. Maybe you could have baby #5 AT Dogers Stadium, I'm sure they have medical facilities on site for the players! :)

  2. You know I really like the idea of having #5 at the stadium and from the looks of it, looks like that is possible! :) Gay I love ya, you look awesome and that last pic is seriously to die for!!!!!!!

  3. What a cute Dodger family...go Dodger blue!

  4. Chris grew up down there in SoCal he wondered if they still have Dodger Dogs, and are they still as good as he remembers.

  5. I can't believe the whole family made it. WOW!!! Ez had a fever that day, we were so sad not to meet up. Wanna BBQ soon? You let me know when and what you're up to, although it seems like you are super woman and could manage a hike this weekend if we put you up to it. CRAZY LADY!!!

  6. oh, and that is the most precious picture ever of your two boys.

  7. You are one AMAZING woman, my dear. He's a beauty!
