Ready, Set, Balance!

We've been spending a lot of time chasing B around the block recently. Instead of a bike with training wheels, M and Deen—after admiring the small expertly-balancing Czech children on their trip earlier this year—gifted us with a pedal-less bike that Brynna pushes along with her feet. This is supposed to cultivate better balance than training wheels and thus an eventual easier transition to a regular bike.

Brynna's really getting the hang of it now, and can glide along, both feet off the ground, for five or ten seconds at a time—particularly if one of us provides a "rocket boost" to get her up to speed!

We've also managed to brainwash her appropriately about helmet use. If we see someone riding a bike without one, she yells, "that not safe!" Darn right, Little B.
