Monday late afternoon, I decided to take off Tessa’s training wheels and see how she’d do. The bike was her 4th birthday present from us 6 months ago. She was excited to try, so she got on her bike while I held onto the seat, and started pedaling. After a few seconds I let go, and she had it. I couldn’t believe it! I was so proud of her! We spent the rest of the next hour practicing getting on and starting to pedal herself without my help. When Rob got home, she got on her bike and just pedaled away. He was in shock :)
Different people have been commenting lately that Tessa looks like she’s getting taller, growing up, etc.. I think she has gone thru a growth spurt recently. Seeing her on that bike confidently pedaling away made me realize she really is growing up! She suddenly seems like such a big girl. Sigh… That was a contented sigh. I love my daughter. She is such a blessing from God.
