You’ll never guess what I can do!

Now that I’m 5 1/2, and I’ve been doing so awesome in OT learning more balancing, I’ve been working for a while with Daddy and can finally ride a two-wheeler! It was an awesome day having everyone cheer me on, and I am SO proud of myself!

Mommy took pictures, Abby took a video, and Emily was my cart wheeling cheerleader!

All my neighbors wanted to cheer me on… even my favorite, Baby Mollie!

Daddy has been telling me that as soon as I learned how to ride to the cul-de-sac alone, I could go to the toy store, and I’m SO glad I could finally go! I even put my Legos down a little tonight to go for a ride!

We were so awesome at the restaurant, were on our best behavior, and only spilled ONE glass of water, so we got to go ride the outdoor carousel by the water!

We loved our new dangling bunny earrings!

Nannie gave us all our own bag for our Bermuda cruise this summer and we put them to good use on our Easter egg hunt! It’s not always easy to get a good picture with 5 kids… especially when one is 2, but Mommy did her best!

It was tricky trying to find spots in the hotel rooms, but we did it!

We also got to see the most amazing thing together! Mom has been watching the live footage of April, the giraffe, for months now, and we finally got to see the birth of her calf LIVE! It was so cool, and everyone was super excited!
