Biker Girl

On Friday afternoon, we went outside with Elise's friend Liem to ride bikes. I was a bit hesitant, since Elise has been mostly disinterested in the new bike since we brought it home. Sure, there are tassels on the handlebars and there's a basket for collecting rocks, but you have to wear a helmet to ride it!

To make a long story short, after getting to the park under mommy power, Elise just started pedaling. All on her own. So, now our girl can ride a bike. Still working on steering, of course, but she can pedal! And she likes to do it! We're very proud.

Hooray! Now you can add "family bike ride" to the list of cool things you can do together. I remember waiting much longer to ride by bike as a kid, and by then I had a very hard time getting that fear of crashing to fall away. The younger the better, I say. I think I can imagine how much she giggles when she rides.

How did you know that the giggle is the best part?
