No more training wheels

This weekend Jude decided he wanted to take off his training wheels and go for it, and that's exactly what he did. He tried and tried again until he got it. With limited frustration and after a few nasty falls, the kid did it. Now, he's one step closer to being a big kid! I documented the learning process for your viewing pleasure!
Jude preparing to ride his bike for the first time without training wheels.
Husband letting go for the first time. I was scared shitless, by the way.
Jude riding down the hill all by himself. Success!
Success, again!
Move over Lance Armstrong, Jude's got new wheels!

For those of you without children, this may seem like no big deal, but to my kid this was the best day of his life. Now he can go running with me, we can ride bikes to the store, and we can ride bikes to the park. Basically, we can go anywhere. The possibilities are endless!

Way to go, Jude!
