First Things First

 We've had a couple weeks filled with 'firsts' around here. 

Lynden isn't generally first at anything.
Walking for example... 


But, thanks to his hardworking Daddy, he now has a big boy bed!

The first week or so took a few tumbles and being returned back to 
bed innumerable times, but he's getting the hang of staying in bed now.

For the first few days Ryder borrowed my blanket ladder to get into his top bunk.
I'll have to get a new picture with the matching walnut ladder Braden made for him.

And I finally finished Lynden's first big boy bed blanket. 
How's that for alliteration? 

 Quincy had his first doctor's appointment last week as well.

Getting three kids up, dressed, fed, and to the doctor's office on my own by 
8am was a task of Olympic proportions, but we made it with 5 minutes to spare. 

I think this is my new favourite photo. 

Lynden still won't walk on his own, but to give me a break, 
Braden took both big boys to the shop with him on Saturday.  

Quincy accompanied us in the Lillebaby on our first 'family of 5' walk. 

And this sweet big brother was absolutely 
tickled to be able to hold his baby brother for the first time. 

Lynden is not my sensitive and affectionate boy, 
but he was fiercely possessive of Quincy 
and even bestowed a few kisses on his soft head.

Looking forward to more 'firsts' to come.
