Elizabeth rode all the way to the park on her little bike for the very first time today. According to Google, that's a distance of 550m. Admittedly, Mama carried the bike home while pulling Elizabeth in her little wagon, but given that she hadn't been allowed out of the driveway before I was very impressed!
Later that day we went to the library and Elizabeth figured out how to scan her own library books. It's a bit tricky as it requires you to push the book in a straight line, at an appropriate pace until you hear the beep. Then you have to wait for the "thump" as it demagnifies the anti-theft device.
I was teasing her that the next thing I know, she'll be biking to the library to take out books all by herself. She looked at me rather alarmed and said seriously: "I still need my Mommy you know!"

That's awesome!! We've got to do some serious work with Ali and her bike. Her leg muscles are so weak and she gets so tired of it.

Dear Mommy, what will you do when she doesn't - or rather, thinks she doesn't need her Mommy any more? ;)
