I had another Doctor appt. last night and it went just fine... My pregnancies are so uneventful and pretty basic it really is GREAT!! Everything is right on schedule. Next week I'm picking up the heparin and I will have to do that twice a day until the day I go in to be induced. That kinda stinks... Plus the Lovenox is in these ready made syringes and all I have to do is open it and shoot it. Now I'll have to actually measure it all out and do it so it'll be a little different but I think it will be fine! I think it will be wierd once I DON'T have to give myself shots everyday... We're still planning on the 20th of February so I have less than 4 weeks. YIKES!!

I also had to write down the cutest thing Lexie said the other morning. I was getting her dressed on my bed and she was standing there and out of nowhere said, "mama the baby is moving" and put her hand on her own belly! I cracked up. I said Lexie you don't have a baby in your belly only mommy. She started laughing and left it at that. It was so cute! Last night we were talking to Travis RIGHT after my appointment while still walking down the halls in the hospital. She gets on and tells him the whole story about how we got pictures of baby Ryan and baby Ryan is her sister and she's a girl. He enjoyed that even though on the phone it's kinda hard to understand her so he only got about half of it. She's such a little angel! I love her to death!

Speaking of Travis, he thought he was going to be able to try to walk on to Pathfinder school on Monday so he changed his plane ticket and everything but then he found out the unit probably won't pay for it so now he's just hanging out in Columbus, GA. Thank goodness he has a couple friends there that he really likes or he would be bored out of his mind!!! He's not sure when he'll get home but probably sometime next week!! I am bummed for him that he didn't get his school but I couldn't be happier that he is coming HOME!!!! Well I guess that's it for now!! Have a great weekend everyone!

I've been wanting to cut Lexie's hair for a while now but just haven't gotten around to it. It was getting long but it was so straggly she needed a good cut... I want it to be long one day but it needed a cut bad!! So we did a little bob and I think it's adorable!! She loves it too!! :) Just thought I would post some pics...

I also had my baby shower today and it turned out WONDERFUL (THANK YOU Cristine!!!) It was small but perfect! We talked, played games, and I got some wonderful gifts. I can not believe I'm having this baby in a little over a month!!!! I'm so excited! Alexis got the baby shoes I got for Ryan and made me put them on her baby!! :) It was a great day!!!

Well we made it back from Arizona last week!! It was a great but very busy visit!! First, let me say to those I DIDN'T get to see I'm sorry!! It was so crazy! Christmas is a hard time to come b/c we're busy enough when we visit throwing that in the mix makes it ridiculous!! Plus, with Travis coming and us wanting to just spend time together we got even less done than normal! The plane ride home was great! Alexis was a little angel which made for a very relaxing 24 hours! I was so uncomfortable though! I've now decided I will avoid traveling in my first AND third trimester!! :) We're adjusting back to the time although it's always harder coming back then going for some reason! Alexis slept through the night finally last night and the night before! I on the other hand am waking up every hour and can NOT keep my eyes open past 9 or 9:30 (very unusual for me!) I'm not complaining though the end result is, of course, worth it!

Speaking of the end, I had a Doctor appt. on Saturday and everything is great! The Doctor has set my induction date so, I will be going in on the 20th of February!! As long as I don't go into labor early Travis should definately be there even if he decides to do Pathfinder school right after Ranger school (Pathfinder is another 3 week school there in GA and he would really like to do it and it starts 2 days after Ranger school is over!) I can't believe I only have 5 weeks left and then I will be a mommy of 2!!!! Oh, for those who don't know we have a definate name for this sweet little girl... Ryan Pyper McBride. We're very excited!

Last but not least, Travis's deployment date got pushed back AGAIN!!!! Only a month this time but with a new baby coming we'll take it!!! So Ryan will be around 6 weeks when he deploys instead of 2!! He actually doesn't even know yet since he has no communication with anyone!!

I guess that's it for now! I've been very busy getting organized and ready as much as I can for this baby!! I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! Alexis of course was spoiled rotten but now that we're home she's loving all the new toys she got!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
