Ian The Bikemaster

This weekend, the training wheels came off and Ian let Daddy show him how to ride a REAL two-wheeler (just like Andy!).

He took to it so quickly! After months of saying that he wanted to take his training wheels off, then crying when I tried to help him balance, he finally got enough confidence to give it a try for real. Maybe Daddy just has the magic touch.
He had a little trouble starting, but Bryan showed him the "push the peddle, then bounce on your foot" trick. And within 10 minutes, he was off all on his own.
Three years and 9 months old and riding like a pro! I'm so proud :)
Doesn't he look cute on that itty bitty bike?

Since then, he's been out at least twice a day practicing-- he totally loves it.
I think he amazes himself.

Andy was so proud of him! I am still in shock that little Ian is riding a two wheel bike!

That's amazing! I can't even get my 6 yr 9 mo old to even TRY to ride her bike without the training wheels. Go Ian!

Go Ian!! I didn't even know they made bikes that small! Cute!

That's pretty good for a three year old. I think at three I was still trying to master running without tripping. LOL

Wow! I'm so impressed! My seven year old hasn't even taken the training wheels off yet.
