ride luca ride


yesterday afternoon, jesse and i surprised luca with his first real bike!  it was super exciting for all of us.  we have never really spent that kind of money before on the kiddos.  we are much more accustomed to making gifts, but i am thankful that we had the means to get this for our little man.

he was so surprised!  i love that.  but he was also a little nervous about getting on.  which i kind of love too.  that's just who he is and how he was made.  cautious at the start of anything new.  like his papi.

he asked us,
 "how did you get this?"  
totally cracked us up.  although he does expect a gift, he evidently did not consider anything like this an option.  made it that much more fun to give.

"i'm not hurt! good thing i am wearing this stuff."

wait for me!

and gia's reaction?
"wait for me!"  i am coming too.  see?  i am riding my bike!  i am coming luca, i am coming too."
so cute.

this morning (before breakfast), luca suggested we go outside to ride bikes again.

"i wanted a bike for my birthday mama.  i love it."
