Well, it’s not.
Even though he was sleeping, Hudson wanted NO PART in this project. There’s a reason they only do foot prints at the hospital…babies hands are tricky! We got ink everywhere. Mostly on me.
I did a few practice runs on a piece of paper. I think this step was unnecessary…it turned out to be easier to stamp the baseball than it was the paper because the ball is round and the baby automatically grips it. So skip this step and just go for it.
Here’s the finished product! It turned out super cute!
I’m just now realizing I forgot to write his name on the ball. I have mommy brain! Oh, and here’s another tip: have a baby wipe on hand to use to clean up any smudges you accidentally get on the ball. But do it quickly before the ink dries! I used Hudson’s left hand for this since my husband has high hopes of him being a left-handed pitcher some day. I’m considerate like that.
By the way, this happened….
One of these prints is not like the other…someone stepped on the ink pad which resulted in this little gem.
Thanks Sophie. Sorry I don’t have a baseball for your print too.
