Less than an hour

In less than an hour he was riding on two wheels with no assistance!

Skipped the training wheels!

I still can't get over how quickly he figured out his steering and then his balance. I am so blown away. I was beside myself alone with him outside losing my mind in excitement!

Go Liam! - You're Awesome! - Look at You!

Wolf Whistles - Clapping - Cheerleading

The whole complex probably thought I was a total nut case!

So an hour of bending over a small bike, proxy steering, proxy balancing, et cetera translates into a pretty dang good workout for the mom. Not to mention the long sprints once Liam was taking off and I was so scared I'd have to catch him. Then more sprints when he'd get out of sight and I'd hear a crash.

I am very sore today - that was the best work out EVER.

I have to also say that he learned how to crash well. When he'd crash his bike and jump off of it with out a stumble, I'd cheer again like a crazy person and say, "Good Crash!" He thought that was pretty great that a crash could be a good one!

Other than some grass stains and thinner patches on the knees of his camo pants, this kiddo came out of his training scrape free!

Such a tough kid!

Simply a wonder child!

Those last few shots before getting in the car last Saturday. No cooperado, and wouldn't you know it, so dang charming even when he's fighting me.

Project Liam

My friend Lindsay needed some photos and journaling material to test out some of her scrapbooking layouts (she works for Close to My Heart). I was happy to oblige and get a fun page in return. She did a great job!

So I handed Liam this photo and asked him who that was.

He said, "It's me and Cristian. No wait, it's me and..."

I was cracking up!

He said bewildered, "Well, Mom, what friend is that then?"

I said it was ME not him. He went on to say I looked like a boy since I didn't have any hair yet.

Oh so funny!

Circa 1981 - I am not sure who the friend is in the photo, but to the right is my great grandma Boyd.
