PSF - What's missing from this picture?

Can you tell what's missing from this picture?

Look closely...

That's right! No training wheels!


Alex took them off on Sunday and after about ten minutes this is what my big guy looked like.
Alex was very proud of himself for teaching Jack with a well-known, mostly foolproof method; deceit.



I can't believe he caught on so fast...although that's how Jack is. When he's been told ready to do something, he just does it. There is no gray with him.



Thankfully we haven't had a big fall yet...Jack doesn't take to injury with quite as much bravery as Melody does.

that is really cool. I just wish that I could get Hayden on his bike. He really wanted it in the store but now, it just sits there. He won't touch it.

But Congrats Jack, great job. Please tell Hayden its not bad.

How exciting! I keep telling my hubby that I won't be able to watch when my kids try that for the first time....either that or I'll wrap them in Charmin first! :-) Love the name, btw!
