New Wheels

The other day, I received an e-mail from a neighbor announcing she's giving away her son's tricyle and I couldn't resist picking it up for Adam. He's had it for 3 days now and insists on riding it for about an hour every evening. He especially loves riding with Tara, our (almost)6-year-old neighbor. Adam ADORES Tara. She rings the bell every afternoon, asking Adam to play... and Adam goes NUTS. He RUNS down the stairs yelling "Tara! Tara! I'm coming, Tara!" the whole way down. They take turns bossing each other around when they play together... and I have to constantly remind Tara that Adam is only 3... but they are precious together, nonetheless.

Interesting story about Adam's helmet... we went to Tar.get together to pick one out the other night. I asked Adam which helmet he liked and he immediately picked out the Sch.winn (glad that company is still around!) one with the "fishies". Just for fun, I asked Adam if he wanted the "Abby Cad.abby" or "Do.ra" helmet instead. He replied "Mom, those are for GIRLS!" Wow... can't believe he already has some gender stereotypes at 39 months. Incredible. Anyway, the fish helmet won out... which was my favorite one, anyway. Here are some pics of Adam with his new trike:

Doesn't this picture just scream "SUMMER"?!? Adam eating his 1st icee, courtesy of Tara

Adam & Tara, getting ready to "race"

There they go! Also, notice our new wheels (car) in the background? Adam is *fascinated* by it. Almost every day he'll say to me "Daddy got a new car?" and "Where's Daddy's old car?" =)

Again with the similarities of our boys. Teo LOVES older girls, and will follow them around, and chat with them if they give him the time of day.

Also, Teo is big on saying what are boy things and what are girls things (especially when it comes to Dora/Diego, and the Disney princesses which he won't go near). The other day he was saying that a song was a boy song. We were trying to correct him, and then we figured out that he meant sung by a guy. Then he said that only he could listen to boy songs, and we could listen to girl songs. Where do they come up with this stuff? Teo isn't even in daycare anymore.

It's awesome that he loves his bike and that he has a friend to ride with. Looks like a great, safe place to ride.
