the other day i was playing with the babies. the bigs were outside with j.
harper came running in SCREAMING "MOMMMYYYYYY! COME SEEEE! YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT!!!!".
and when i came outside i didn't believe it. she finally learned how to ride her bike without training wheels.
i thought this day might never every come. she is very cautious and unwilling to try new things.
very scared to fall. jimmy isn't here often and it's a bit hard for me to take all four on bike rides. HA!
but she did it!!
with lots of encouragement from her daddy:
a few wobbles:
and lots of smiles:
and i stood there with teary eyes snapping photos.
not only because she finally hit this milestone…
but because j was here for it.
it might sound silly, but he is not here for most firsts. so to see him accomplish this with harper. gosh, i have tears in my eyes just typing this.
and speaking of bikes and tears in my eyes for other reasons…i took my first spin class last night. i can barely walk or SIT today, but i loved it. i kept up and i am really proud of myself. i have a feeling this is really going to change my body and maybe my life.
so here's to new beginnings and accomplishments. 🙂
happy thursday sweet friends.
