Big step. two wheels!

A Bike Ride
Originally uploaded by Enzo D.

After spending a lot of time looking at Mommy's back during our visit to Cambridge, it's time to start riding a bike on my own. I really liked riding around while we were there, and Daddy has the idea that we're going to ride to school once I get the hang of it. So...two days ago Daddy took off the training wheels for my bike. I was not at all sure this was such a good idea, but Daddy insisted. We went out in the back yard to ride around--on grass initially so that I wouldn't get hurt in any falls. I also put on my "armor"--knee pads, elbow pads, helmet, long pants, and so on. And off we went. The first day, I managed a few brief little runs without Daddy holding the seat. today was even better, I made it all the way across the yard on my own. That was a big step. I think I'm getting the hang of this.
