Remember the Bunny Hop?

You know, the cute little dance you did (or may still do if you are willing to do that kind of thing as an adult)when you were in kindergarten or grade school. The kids that were really into it would hold their hands up like cute little bunny paws and wiggle their pretend bunny noses. Do you remember? Yeah, well my little daredevil has bypassed THAT bunny hop and moved right into the bunny hop on the scooter or skateboard. Noah got a skateboard skills book for Christmas and Oliver will sit down with the book and study the pictures. He turns his little skateboard over in his hands or on the floor to mimic the photos/tricks then gets on to practice. He's not doing any major tricks YET but I am guessing that it won't be too long - definitely not long enough for me. The kid is crazy! These are a couple of tame videos of him practicing, yes he is in the house it's flooding, snowing, freezing, muddy, slushy and just plain icky outside. One video shows him zooming back and forth and the other shows him practicing his version of the bunny hop. Listen close, you can hear me cracking up. Actually, I think that is my body/brains way of dealing with the little ball of fire, cracking up is better than a constant state of worry and panic...

Good Job, Ollie. But seriously, there Mom, you have do need to prepare for the panic mood when the weather lets him get out of doors. Just look how well he watched his area while riding his bike. !! Hope your weather clears up soon. We melted and are waiting to see what comes next, here. Auntie K.

He's pretty good on that thing!!! That's hilarious w/ the bunny hop, though. We bring all of our outdoor ride-on toys inside during the summer...when it's nasty here.

I don't think I've ever seen such good hopping beside a scooter before. Good job, Ollie- you look like a professional!

At least you had a helmet on him! That's what is important!
