Henry learned how to ride his tricycle!
Until this week, he has REFUSED to even try to put his feet on the pedals. His feet can reach the ground, so he has become very efficient at "walking" the trike around. This week he wanted me to push him around on the trike. I told him I'd only push him if he put his feet on the pedals. It took some serious convincing (and a lot of practice!), but he figured it out! For a while he needed a "starter push," but now he can even get started all alone! Now he's a madman, racing around on three wheels! This boy can ride completely by himself, and he couldn't be more proud of himself!
Way to go, Henry!
Almost forgot...he saw his helmet hanging in the garage yesterday, so now he will not even consider riding his tricycle without his helmet on for safety! He keeps it hanging on the handlebars when he's not using it!
