Ryan is HERE!!! We're so excited to be home and to have Ryan with us!!! She is an absolute beauty and we are a family of 4!!! She was born February 21, 2008 at 00:41 (12:41 a.m.) She weighed 7 lbs. 12 ounces and was 19 inches. We got home from the hospital about 1530 today and we've just been hanging out doing our thing! Alexis is thrilled to have a baby sister and LOVES to hold her!! I feel pretty good and I've decided the second baby is DEFINATELY an easier recovery!! Thank goodness! Of course I still have a little ways to go but I'm feeling pretty good!! Ryan is already a champion nurser and hopefully I won't have the problems I had with Lex! We are so blessed!! Here are some pics from the last 48 hours...

Getting ready to leave for the hospital (I know I LOOK scared b/c I AM scared!!)

So I thought I would post a few pics... We've finally had some nice days, a little cold but sunny so we've taken advantage!! Alexis LOVES being outside!!! She also LOVES her tricycle!! Here she is...

I also finally recieved the last few things for Ryan's room and Travis so sweetly helped me put them up so her room is COMPLETED!! I love how it turned out... I'm almost done with Alexis's room I'm just waiting on her new bedset really but it's backordered till March so hopefully it will come soon... I'll post pics of her room when I'm done! I know I'm not the best photographer but you get the idea!!!

A little update... Travis got home last Tuesday and Alexis and I were able to pick him up at the airport! She is overjoyed to have him home! All of sudden she's staying in her bed a little better AND back to normal with her potty training!!! He has to do everything for her b/c she won't let me which is a nice break for me! He's happy to be able to sleep and eat whenever he wants and we're all enjoying being a family again.

I'm being induced in TWO weeks!! CRAZY!!! We've been getting all the last minute preperations done. Today we hung everything on the walls and I have a few more things coming in the mail. Once it's all up I will definately post some pics with Lex's and Ryan's room. They are both coming together really well!! I'm of course doing a crazy amount of laundry and can't believe how much stuff I have!!!

Travis is on leave till the 17th and then I'll be induced on the 20th so he'll pretty much have the whole month of February off!!! I guess that's about it for now...
