She can do it!

Little did I know, on Saturday while I was working, my little Princess growing up! Ok, ok, I know that didn't happen just in one day but what is it about a child learning how to ride a bike that makes them seem so big?



Apparently daddy asked her if she wanted to try her bike without the training wheels. She didn't protest so he took them off. He held her up a few times, and got her started a few times and that was it! She was off all over the circle like she had been doing it her whole life.






Man she was proud, and as soon as I learned what was going on I was pretty dang proud her. I love that she is still a normal kid. Diabetes isn't holding her back! She did have to take break a few times because of a few lows, but she got right back on and kept going!


What a great weekend it was!

Way to go! Ameliah picked it up last summer, she needs a bigger bike now though... she looks a little like a clown on a little bike when she's cruisin around the driveway now. :)

That is so cool. I remember when my older two learned. Saydee is almost there. It is sad that they just grow up to fast right before our eyes.

Oh, my heart fluttered when I read this! We just bought our daughter her first bike and I can't imagine her one day just taking off.
