You've got to savor those moments.
Hugely sweet. Treasure it. Tell her how it made you feel.
4 years older, my daughter and I cracked the distance and speed family record, 48 miles and 48 mph. "It was fast and I was wondering whether we'd be ok, but I know you'd judge it" Awwwww
( but, 4 years older than that, 16 yo on the back of the Ducati motorcycle - "Is that as fast as it'll go??"
Be careful of what you wish for!
