Here's a look at Davie's new love...Watermelon. He loves to hold up whatever he has and show it off...don't make the mistake of taking the item he is holding out to you. Despite what it looks like, he is only showing it to you and under no conditions does he want you to touch it.
So, despite the anxiousness I have felt as we wade through the many delays and pitfalls of house-buying, we are trying to enjoy New Haven and the precious days Dan has off. Grace has been begging for a bike since our days in Blakely. Having a bike in Honolulu would have been pretty impractical, so I promised her one in "the new house." Since her birthday is only a week away I have been scouring craigslist for a suitable bike. I found one and told her we were going to go and get a bike today. Little did I know she would have a caveat. "I want a princess one, not a boys one" she informs me. Where does she get this stuff? So here is Grace on her new bike oh so reluctantly wearing her helmet.Any thoughts on the helmet wearing? I hate to battle with her when honestly she can barely move a centimeter per minute at this point. However, do I need to stand firm now for the future? It can be so hard sometimes to decide what is my motherly duty, and what is just not worth fighting over. Who knew 2 year olds were so dang stubborn! Where could she possibly have got that from? :)
