Daxton's First Bike Ride

Daxton had a birthday this last week and all he asked for was a bike, so of course we surprised him the morning of his birthday with a little red bike.

For me, its been so important to document little or big milestones in our children's lives and so we thought it would be a good idea to document Daxtons first ride on his bike.  Its always emotional to have my kids birthdays come around, but as I watched Daxton ride away for the first time on that bike it hit me  like a ton of bricks of how big and old he is. And that I remember dreaming when I was little of being the mom one day and helping my own kids ride a bike. And now it is here and I'm living my dream. Being a mom is so incredible and I couldn't help but tear up watching him ride around for the first times.

Hope you enjoy watching Daxton's first ride.

Your videos really are fantastic!

But so is your little boy. And I remember the sweet feeling of getting my first bike, and I see the same feeling in Daxtons happy face. That feeling of accomplishment, of freedom and a sense of joys that are within reach. Being able to get around by yourself, of adventures around the corner, of sights to see.
Lucky Daxton!

Learning to ride a bike is a first experience of personal freedom. I remember learning to ride one. And when each of my children took off on their bikes! Go Daxton!!!

Love this video! It remembers me of, when I got my first bike on my 7th birthday (which is 'only' 51 years ago! :), but I still see me falling in some bushes, ha!) Daxton is such a cute little guy!

I just adore your videos. Could you please consider sharing what you use to record, edit etc. I would love to try & make something similar to share with parents in my ECE program.

Thanks so much for considering!
