Yesterday was Alex's half-birthday, so we now have a three and a half year old. Alex outgrew his "big wheel" bike, so it was time for a "big kid" bike. Since he is tall, we skipped the 12 inch size and went straight to the 16 inch size. He chose a Spider Man bike and has a Cars helmet and pads to minimize the boo-boo's.
Alex likes taking bike rides around our apartment complex, which has some open areas with grass and lots of sidewalks. Alex has make friends with the kids who live right by the "grassy area." The three of them rode their bikes around on Saturday evening.
At three and a half, Alex has a great sense of humor. He likes to make up letters while he sings his ABC's just to make me laugh. We are working on potty training, and Alex is making progress. He is becoming more and more independent.
