She'll actually allow the helmet on her head now...

That's progress! At this rate, by the time it warms up enough for her to go out in the (yet to be purchased) trailer, she'll be comfortable wearing it for a while!



OK, OK... this is really a shameless plug to post a picture of my daughter. Amazing how quickly a year goes by and how much they grow and change!

Awwwwwwwwwwwww Skiahh I remember when she was born. It's good to see that you are teaching her the proper way of wearing a helmet early on. I can't believe this is the same "devil" child that we so lovingly talked about.

..........and yep. She has my nose!!

Beautiful little girl, Skiaah. You'll have your hands full in about 12 years.

A year old, already? Man.... Time does fly. <shaking head>

My son wears his bicycle helmet as a batting helmet when we play baseball in the back yard. And if yo have multiple kids, once you get one wearing a helmet, the other HAS to have a helmet too.

As far as my experience goes, the prettier daughters are, the more expensive they are. Hope you are preparing for times to come.

Once she's in the kid seat, you'll have the best interval coach in the world.

Sounds like either the kid has issues or the parent needs to complete GRS.

Beautiful kid! You must be so proud that she got her mother's looks rather than yours.

I am ecstatic about that!!

My contribution is those blue eyes previously mentioned. I've got blue eyes, but hers are more intensely blue than any eyes I've ever seen before.

Hit the bike path as soon as the weather permits.

Before you know it, you will be hearing "but everyone else has a car !".

Look for Bailey in the trike on the East Bay path. We like kids. Kids like Bailey.
