He rarely gets angry at her as he used to. He tries to include her in games that he wants to play. He is enthusiastic to teach her things that he knows. He watches out for her and tries to steer her away from trouble. He genuinely seems to care about her.
Evan working on one of his masterpieces. He is so focused when he is doing something artistic. He will sit for as long as it takes to perfect one of his works.
Hailey deciding to see how the paint tastes.
I don't know what it is about my boys and bikes, but they are just not motivated to move on to the next "level". We bought Evan a Diego bike with training wheels for his birthday, but he is nervous to ride it. In the spring Trent ran over one of the training wheels on Spencer's bike and busted it. We figured it was not a big deal and didn't replace it because we thought that he would learn to ride a two wheeler over the summer anyway. Wrong! He is not the least bit interested! So at this point in time Spencer rides Evan's bike which makes him look like a clown riding a circus bike and Evan rides the tricycle. Hailey rides the foot bike a la' Fred Flintstone because she can't reach the pedals on the tricycle. Not for lack of trying though.
