We got him this bad ass little tricycle that I'd had my eye on since probably January. Shiny and red with handlebar tassels and lets not forget the bell (I'm sure the neighbors won't). We waited until his actual birthday to give it to him and I'm so glad we did. Not only because then he had something on his birthday but also because I think it would have gotten lost in the overwhelming amount of stuff he got at the party.
Like I said, when Grant saw it for the first time he let out this excited scream and then said "Bicycle! Bicycle!"
Never lacking for energy (part of the reason he got this gift) he wanted to ride it immediately.
And since that day we've been working on teaching him to ride it. He's doing much better with it than I thought he would. The main issue at the moment is that he is just a hair too short to really get going on this thing, otherwise I think he'd be getting my groceries by now.
|Saying "push with your feet" does not make him use the pedals.|
|I know I cut off the top of his head in this one but|
I love how happy he is!
