Ari is Almost Two! Also, a Bicycling Misadventure (Coaster Brake FAIL!)

Just since my last post, it feels like Ari’s been doing so many new things. I have to get them down here! Not that every toddler isn’t doing new things all the time, but I don’t want to forget his. First, perhaps a regression in our parenting – feeding him with his frog puppet! He’s… Continue reading Ari is Almost Two! Also, a Bicycling Misadventure (Coaster Brake FAIL!)
