It's me again :)

So let me just say that the amount of posts this weekend may be a little overkill but my baby will only turn 4 once. Peter and I got Lily a big girl bike for her birthday. This morning we took her out for chocolate chip pancakes and when we got home we unveiled her gift. She was excited and wanted to get on right away but in true Lily form once on the much bigger bike she began to cry. I would push her a little ways and ask her if she wanted off. Each time between sobs she would say no. So we pushed on. We turned the corner to go around the block and she started wailing again. I bent down next to her and said baby we can go home if you want and once again she sobbed no. I saw a pretty leaf and put it in her basket. She thought this was a fine idea so she got off put some leaves in her basket and would get back on and I'd push her a little more. She was getting more and more confident with getting on and off the bike. Then she put her feet on the pedals and discovered that if she pushed backwards the bike would stop. This put her in control. Once she discovered she was the one in the drivers seat she told me mommy I feel much better I am very brave. I said yes you certainly are. By the time we rounded the block and were on the homeward stretch she was pedaling and now I am proud to announce she can ride a big girl bike. Way to go my determined girl!

You can't tell here but she is crying.
Mommy telling her it is ok to turn around and go home.

Picking leaves for her basket.

Riding all by herself.

When we got to the street we caught the fear bug again.

But we overcame it quickly.

Can you tell she's proud of herself! And check out the cute bike it has a spot for her dolls to ride!

And we're off!

Just a little side note we are still in our birthday outfit because I was informed this morning that it is still her birthday and this is what Lily wears on her birthday. Who am I to argue with that logic and when its your birthday I was also informed that you get to wear socks with your sandals even if it's not in fashion. Who knew? I was also informed today that I could just get rid of her bed cause Lily just doesn't do night night anymore and that my friends is where this mommy drew the line. A birthday only gets ya so far kiddo.

Psot away it is an exciting time when they have a birthday, did you see all those stinkin pink pictures I took and now it is suppose to be awful out so she won't even be able to wear it on her real birthday. What a great gift, Maya loves riding her big bike FAST! but she doesn't have a basket that makes it really neat to put things in.
