The ABCs of a pro cyclist and beginner parent

We’ve gotta teach Alexander the ABCs soon, so thought I’d practice. Enjoy!

Alexander rocks… every day!

Back on the Bike with Brendan and Baby – pulling the Chariot and trying to get in a daily ride, even if it’s just to the Post Office.

Craziness on the road – took a road trip to NM to see family.

Dave Dog loves dirty diapers – it’s a doggy Hot Pocket, caught him in the act!

Everyday Excitement – it is more fun than I ever imagined.

Fatherhood – he’s wearing it well!!

GROWING – he’s gotta get ready to reach the ground on the push bike… I mean, after he can hold his head up 🙂

Bonus GGnar… what Alexander will shred, some day!

Hardcore – my definition of this has changed and riding for an hour seems pretty hardcore right now.

Interacting with the world around him…


Kid is Kicking – I think he’s getting ready for pedaling 🙂

Lungs awesome, Legs… atrophy! – Really, they were pretty sore after the first couple of days of riding to the post office!

Mommy – a new word for me and I’m trying hard to wear it well.

Naps… lots of them, the ones where he’s laying on my chest are the most precious.

Ocotillos – the family favorite plant – found in our favorite biome… the desert!

Pooping… of course!

Quiver – lip quiver that is

Riding – with a new definition and appreciation.


Bonus SStories to Share with our kiddo.

Trainer – it’s staring me down, but that really doesn’t look like fun.


V02 Max – this is supposed to be a benefit of Pregnancy – nice lungs.

Wendy – AKA Garner Valley Grandma (the shreddinest grandma ever!) – sent us Easter books – she keeps up with Alexander like a true grandma!

X.. hmmm… not much here, Xchromosome combined with Y = makes our little guy!

Yawning – It’s too cute.

Zone – this is where Alexander goes when he’s in the bike trailer!

    Hot pockets! We caught Bumblebee in the act too. She seemed full of shame. Disturbing! We can never ever look at her the same.
