First bike ride for baby Mira
We finally decided to take Mira out for her first bike ride. She was 10 weeks old and had been going on runs since she was 5 weeks old. The problem was that she was too small for the Burley. So it was time to improvise. We were able to strap her car seat into the Burley, but it still had some wobble to it. A couple of narrow pillows off our sofa placed on each side of the carseat proved to be perfect! She was snug as a bug in a rug. She was a little tentative at first, but was happy as a lark once we got going.
Since B is the stronger rider (and just a stud in general - hehe) he took on transporting duties. I was the overprotective mommy that followed her and monitored traffic from behind. ;-)
Overall the ride was a huge success. She enjoyed it and B and I were able to get out and pedal some.
She's been on one ride since and another ride planned for tonight - hoping it goes just as well. :-)
