A day of firsts

Today Ripley accomplished 2 "firsts"
He came into our bedroom this morning fully clothed. Underwear, pants, shirt, sweatshirt, socks all on and his shoes in hand. The sweatshirt was on backwards, but hey - not bad!
The second "first" was riding his bike without training wheels. Yes. That's right. No training wheels at the age of 3 1/2. The amazing thing is, we never adjusted his training wheels up, we just took them off one day. After that he tried on three different occasions to ride his bike, on the third "session" he got it. Of course he hasn't quite mastered stopping -- but that's for another day. He can turn and bike in a big long circle around the driveway though. Wow.
