memorial day weekend

We've had a very uneventful, but pretty relaxing weekend. Really the only real reason this feels like Memorial Day weekend is that Daniel was off today. Friday night we did have a BBQ with the worship team and Ryder did great. Again he was passed around and stayed awake and happy through it all AND then slept almost 7 hours during the night!!! It was like heaven for me! :) (I know this may not happen again for a while, I'm not getting my hopes up, but it was nice!) With the exception of church, the past few days we've just chilled at the house and caught up on some much needed rest!

Ryder is getting bigger fast and now some of his fun clothes actually fit. So this week he started wearing his PUMAS that his aunts gave him! Are these not the cutest little shoes ever???

We also pulled out the "Happy Hippo" play mat this week! He's just starting to respond to toys or bright things around him, so I thought he might start liking this ... and he did.


And Rocky didn't really know why Ryder was in the floor with him, but knew it had something to do with toys, so he brought his to join in on the fun!!!

Daniel took this picture this morning of Mommy & Ryder resting together - notice how we are both sleeping with our hands up - that was not planned! (I've always slept that way)
