William's on two wheels

On Thursday evening William hit another mile stone. The training wheels came off his bike. I was watching two of our neighbors kids who are 8 and 5, they both had brought their bikes to ride while they stayed with us. Billy was home, so I was riding bikes with them all too. William was watching everyone ride and all of a sudden said "I want to take my training wheels off." So Billy took them off and started to hold the bike behind him.  William was super determined and very quickly told Billy he could do it.... and that was that. I didn't even have time to get the video camera for that first take off! (we did get some footage of the evening though)
I knew he was ready because he has been doing really well cruising around on his balance bike. We have been talking about taking off his training wheels for a little while, I was just waiting for Billy to be home.
William is really excited about riding his bike all over again. It's so fun to watch him grow up! I am so proud of him.


  1. CUTE! So proud of him. He is growing up so fast.

  2. He is a doer, just like his mom and dad. He will be such a great big brother.

  3. I think that is amazing! Good for him.
