Today Anthony left his trike behind and moved on to a big boy bike. It was a little rough at first but with a little help from Dad he was soon pedalling like a pro. I love listening to him work things out “Up and down, push up and down, up and down.” as he learns a new skill. There was a time when I didn’t think he would ever be able to ride a bike because of hemophilia and now I am so gracious that we have made the medical advances that we have. Anthony also has asked me to let him share a room with his baby brother, Michael. This being the second time he has requested it I took Michael’s crib and made the big move with him acrossed the hall so that it is no longer Anthony’s Room but Anthony & Michael’s Room.
