Helmets vs wrenches

One of our Christmas presents this year was a bike trailer. We're both into producing less green house gases and a healthier way to travel (but really, we don't want to spend the gas money). It helps that we live in a small, biker friendly town. We recently received a helmet to protect Hulk's developing cranium. He hates it. The monster comes out every time we put try to put it on him.

The weather has been perking up this week (as opposed to the +18 inches of snow two weeks ago). Saturday night I asked JC if he wanted to walk to church the next day. He replied, "why don't we bike?" So we did. It was warm and prefect weather on the way there. By the time church was over it had started sprinkling. Someone kindly asked if we needed a ride since it was raining. We smiled and said no thank you.

Last year we had some car problems. On the way to WinCo the engine overheated and I had a small panic attack. Fortunately we keep a gallon of water in the car (just in case). Ken came over the next day to diagnose the problem - nothing happened. He told us we could try replacing the radiator cap and we gave him a pumpkin muffin as thanks.

We brought the tool box out during this process and learned that Hulk has an affinity for wrenches. Given that they're shiny, make noise when hit against an object, easily fit in his hand, and something I don't want him to play with - it's understandable.

6 months and counting

Our baby turned 6 months a few weeks ago and we took lots of pictures to commemorate. He's changed a lot in his short time here. Some of his favorites are: waking up at midnight, playing with things that make noise (plastic bags are the best), staring out the sliding glass door, knocking all the books off the shelf, having Daddy read those books to him, going to work with me, and trying to grab the food off of our plates.

JC and I have decided that six months is the best age. They (sort of) sleep through the night, can entertain themselves, mobile (but not enough to get into things), are pros at nursing, and still like to interact with their parents.
