the wheels are off!

Ella did it.  She learned (and I use that term loosely because she is still not 100% confident) how to ride a two wheel bike without training wheels before Rilyn.  Does this surprise me?  No.  Ella has always been inclined to be more active and physically aggressive.  Rilyn got a Hello Kitty Razor scooter for Christmas and is perfectly content riding that around the neighborhood.  She has no interest in learning how to ride a bike, but I have a feeling the time will come sooner rather than later.  James doesn’t work on Fridays this semester, (because he works on Sundays), and so he took the afternoon to teach Ella how to ride without the training wheels.  She did a great job for her first time and I’m pretty sure she will be riding without care by next month.

freaked out face from daddy letting go
I just love the faces she makes!
go girl!
feeling more confident
Yay!

Here is a short video James put together for me of her riding.
