A Bike for Grey...

A few months ago, Kelly, an OT that we know, emailed about an organization that was donating some Amtrykes to local kids who could use them. She thought of Grey and I am so glad that she did!! Yesterday, Grey received his bike and after a rough few minutes...decided that he loved it!

Here he is checking out his bike before it "officially" became his.


Mommy, Grey, and the new bike!
Quite a few people gathered around Grey once he was on it to check the sizing and he wasn't really a fan of all of the people.


Why are you all watching me?


I had a feeling that a cookie might help. :)

Once we were home, he became a real pro at it!

This morning, he loved it even more!



I have to add a pic of his new trick...I think that my fellow SB moms will enjoy this one. :)

Here he is loving his new bike!! Ambucs, Amtryke, and KELLY...thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

PS...the OT, Kelly, that I mentioned...is now the mama to a beautiful new baby Grayden...who just happens to have spina bifida. He is almost ready to come home and we can't wait to meet him! Lots of love and prayers to Austin, Kelly, big brother Zander, and of course...baby Grayden! You can read their story here.

Caleb loves him Amtryke, we took it to the park today! I love the "downward dog" yoga pose...Caleb does that too!

Lauren said...

wow what a cool bike. he looks great on it! to bad the warm weather is leaving, hopefully the hardwood floor can handle all the winter bike riding!

Colleen said...

I'm so impressed with how well he rides his bike! Nate got measured for an AmTryke a few months ago, but I'm unsure when/if he'll get it. But he didn't ride it nearly as well as Grey!
Oh, and I totally remember Nate doing that standing! I have a picture of him doing it at his second birthday party. Getting stronger all the time!

very cool, looks like he could use a rear view mirror because he seems to like reverse!

Stephanie said...

Oh, he is just the cutest! I love how he stops to giggle in one of the videos. I have absolutely fallen in love with this bike (I've seen different versions of this before-why haven't I seen this one?!) I don't know if you saw on FB but I am on the hunt for one for Nate! So cool! Goooo Grey!!!!

Summers Family said...

WOW, WOW - I love it! He is SO AWESOME! He really picks things up so quickly! You must be SO very proud of him.

GREAT JOB GREYSON!!

Ray, Star, and Tanner said...

Wow! Go Grey! Love it! I'm on the hunt for one for Tanner as well! I just have to say that I'm soooo jealous!

Kelly said...

I'm so glad that he loves his bike. He is such a pro already. What a little superstar!!! Can't wait to get home so we can all get together.

Melinda said...

Wow, I am in love with his bike!! That is so cute! No wonder he was crying, I would be too if everyone was watching me on a bike for the first time. As for the new trick - I LOVE it!! Made me laugh because Jonas has recently discovered the same trick and does it with so much pride. Grey is so cute, love the pics!!
