Saying Goodbye to the Crib & Showering Little Dipper

Braden is nearly finished waxing Ryder's new bed. It should be inside and assembled this weekend!  In the meanwhile, we've transitioned Ryder out of his crib (slowly getting the nursery in order) and onto his new big-boy mattress. It's on the floor for now, until we have the bed and rail ready.

The first 2 days of mattress sleeping have been great! Ryder is learning to stay in bed when we put him down and in the mornings it's so sweet to hear the door open and a little patter of footsteps come down the hall and into our room.

And then last night I enjoyed being treated to dinner by a few sweet ladies who showered Baby Little Dipper with sweet gifts - a full supply of bathing toiletries (Burt's Bees - my favourite), diapers, wipes, swaddling blankets, story books, feeding supplies, and a super cute nursing cover for me.  We have been so blessed by the new friendships we've made in the Navy community here.

Here's Ryder on a walk with Mama.
He insisted on walking himself for over the first half mile, before getting into the stroller.
What a trooper!
