In compliance

I know what you guys are thinking. 'Casey, riding without a helmet... PSW is such an irresponsible parent".. While that is debatable, you will be happy to know that the day after our maiden bike voyage, I bought Casey a bike helmet. After driving around town to find a helmet to fit his little head, the next question was whether or not he would keep it on. The initial fitting took place in the house.. Once we strapped it on his head.. He took too running around the room.. Chest all puffed out, chin up high... He loved his new 'hat'. I took it off him briefly, and he immediately signaled 'MORE'! So, I put it back on his and let him wear it while we got ready to ride.

Maiden Voyage

I recently got the coolest gift. A front-mount bike seat. This way, Casey and daddy can go on bike rides, and Casey can face forward, look around, and feel the wind in his hair. We were so anxious to try it out, we took a little ride around the 'hood, sans helmet. Casey did great, he wasnt scared and the moment we stopped, he asked for 'MORE'!!!

Chips and Guacamole

Like father, like son. Looks like Casey is taking after his daddy's love of tortilla chips and guacamole. Everytime, Casey would see me, or smell me eating tortilla chips, he would run over to me, and sign 'More'... So, I would give him tortilla chips.. One at a time. He would take it, walk away, and eat it, and then come back for more... Then, one time, he saw me dipping the chips into some green looking stuff. Or course, he wanted to try. Turns out, he too likes his tortilla chips dipped in guacamole.

At this point, he asked for a seat at the table, so he could dip his own chips..

Happy Birthday... To Me

Its August, and you might be wondering why I am writing an entry titled Happy Birthday. Afterall, Casey's birthday is in Feb. Well because it was recently my birthday. Not a milestone bday, where it signifies a new era.. Such as #16 ( driver's license), or #18 ( legally buying cigarette's, or dirty magazines), or #21 ( ummm, legally buying alcohol, duh), or #25 (lower car insurance rates). I have long since passed all those, about the only one left for me is #65 ( senior discount). Dont get me wrong, I had a good birthday, with an awesome gift... My birthday cake. I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as I enjoyed feeding it to Casey and watching his reactions.

For those of you who dont know sign language, I'll give you MY PERSONAL translation. ( A translation I am confident you wont find elsewhere.) When he touches his hands together, it means, "Oh he!! yeah, gimme more!". When he pats his stomach, he's saying "Damn, that's some good ice cream cake".

I know exactly what to get for his bday.. ICE CREAM CAKE!
