Going to think positive!

I am proud of myself for only gaining 1 pound in 4 weeks! Not sure how I did it but I am glad! I am 1 pound away from hitting the 20 pound mark and I hope I only gain 24 like I did with Lydia. I seem to be doing pretty good which I am excited about! I guess since I gained so much with Lily(65 pounds) and did so good with Lydia I am hoping to do just as good this time around!
If I think about it, even if I do gain 1 pound per week until this little princess comes I will be ok.
Just so you all know I WILL be having this baby a little early. Yes, some people say oh what if you don't and blah blah blah. Well that is just not going to happen.
Tyler was deployed and gone for both of the girls births and I don't want him gone for this baby. He is suppose to leave for a month long training on the 12th and I am due on the 2oth. So I am going to have a nice little chat with my awesome provider I have been seeing and see if they can do something to help me out. I had Lily 5 days early and Lydia 11 days early so I am hoping that this little girl is just like her sisters and comes a little early. I got my membranes stripped with Lydia and was admitted to the hospital that night so I am hoping that something like that happens this time. I know that every pregnancy is different though.
I know this may sound silly but I just have a good feeling that everything is going to work out just perfect.

Christmas Tree!

Here are some pictures of us putting up the Christmas tree and the finished product! It was pretty exciting figuring out what and how we were going to decorate it this year since this is our first Christmas alone and we had to buy everything and do it ourselves!
I really like how it turned out! We are still waiting for some last min ornaments from my in laws since we had left some at their house that we had gotten over the years. So I am excited for it to be all complete!
I especially like our red, white, and blue lights! I thought it was a fun patriotic touch! Tyler said he will put the lights up on the house today which I am very excited about!!
I want to make sure and always have a good decorated house around Christmas time for the girls!
This Christmas is bittersweet! We are really excited to have our first Christmas by ourselves but also sad b/c we will be away from family. We probably would of went home this year but since I will be almost 37 weeks the week of Christmas I am not safe to fly lol.

Quick thought for the night!

Quick thought: Don't you just love the part of pregnancy when you sneeze and you piddle on yourself just a little bit?
I say thank goodness for panty liners!

Over a year!

Just wanted to take a second and say how thankful I am that Tyler has actually hit the year mark of being home from Afghanistan! Out of his 5 years in the Marine Corps the longest Tyler has been home between deployments was first 9 months then 11 months. So I am very happy to say that we have hit the over the year mark! Yay for actually having my husband home for over a year!

This picture was taken last November when Tyler returned home from Afghanistan and met Lydia for the first time! Our family became complete!

Happy Veterans Day

A big THANK YOU goes out to all the Veterans! I am so thankful we have special people in this world who have served and continue to serve our country!
5 years ago today Tyler graduated Marine Corps Boot Camp! He was one of the lucky few that received his EGA on the actual Marine Corps Birthday and graduated on Veterans Day! I am so proud of all of Tyler's accomplishments and his continued selflessness to serve and protect his country! He has been such an amazing provider for this family. I never would of thought that by this time we would have gone through a MEU, 2 combat deployments(one to Iraq and the other to Afghanistan), have 2 beautiful girls with another on the way and be living in Hawaii. We have been through so much and I am so thankful I have such an amazing family to experience all these things with!

This picture of Tyler and I was taken on Family day at MCRD on the day he received his EGA. November 10th 2005.
