Emily had learned to ride her little bike.  When she got a bigger bike for Christmas last year, she pretty much stopped riding.  The bike was just a bit too big...I think a bit intimidating to her.  She would ride as long as daddy helped her get started and she could (literally) run into him to stop.  Even then, she did it because we bugged her about it, not because she wanted to.  A few days ago she came running in telling me I had to come watch her!  She had been practicing, on her own, in the driveway and could take off and ride her bike!!  She was so excited!  Of course I grabbed my camera and snapped a few.

Ethan did the exact same thing! Learned to ride his little bike, but wouldn't ride when we bought him a bigger one. He went about 6 months without riding and is now picking it up again. He rode about 5 blocks (long blocks) to gymnastics last week, starting and stopping all on his own! I was so proud. And HE was, too.
