Papa kept asking Connor if he wanted to ride on the mower and Connor answered "no" about 5 times. Then after my dad was done mowing and was about ready to put the lawn mower away, Connor asked for a ride! So the roamed around a bit and Connor informed me that "I wasn't scared Momma!" We have noticed that he does take a little bit to warm up to things. It was nice to see him come around to the idea of trying it out though.
