Advanced riding skills + new babies

06 Jun

One of Jalen’s favorite things to do is ride his bicycle.  He’s very excited that he’s a good rider now and can’t wait until Johann comes this summer so he can ride with him.  Poor Johie is going to have to ride very slowly for Jalen to keep up with him.  🙂  Anyway, with Grampa’s help, Jalen learned how to stop his bicycle on a hill, and successfully execute a turn without stopping.  He was very excited about this and made mommy come and take a video of him.  This child is such an actor – notice how he turns his head to look at me after the stop to see if I’ve captured it.  🙂  And, see if you see the skid marks from his first attempts using the brakes on the hill.  🙂

Oh right – you want to know about the new baby.  Well, it’s not ours!!  🙂  The boys are pleased to announce that Auntie Tammy and Uncle Dwayne are expecting a little boy – Isaiah Sam – in October.  Jalen is very happy that they listened to him and are getting a little boy like him.  🙂  We’re all looking forward to meeting little Isaiah.  But first, we get to meet new Baby Lemene in August.  As soon as Dalelene tells us the boy’s name, we’ll happily stop calling him Baby Lemene.  🙂

As you can see – boys abound in this family (Sonja – two boys; Shevi – two boys; Acolea – one boy; Michaela – two boys), so Melissa has decided that her chances of having a girl are slim to none.  With odds like that – there’s no need to gamble!
