He's Here!

Fletcher Joseph Cryer arrived on 1 August 2010 at 5:14 am weighing a whopping 7 lbs, 14 oz and was 20 inches long.

We're settling in well and I'll be posting more soon!

Sneak Peak

We had a maternity photo session done this morning and our photographer sent us a few "teasers". Enjoy!

This one is a recreation of...

this one. =) I was about 37 weeks pregnant with Caroline here.

And I seriously think this is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Ever.

Our friends Brian and Katie found a German restaurant and biergarten in the middle of nowhere. They invited us to join them for dinner and the place was really a diamond in the rough! We all had a great time!

We weren't the only ones that missed Ryan...

Spending Tantrum

Ryan arrived at 10:45 on the morning of April 19th and we purchased this later that evening...

We'd been talking about buying one of these while he was home on R&R, but the talk became much more serious when we found out I was pregnant again. We've been shopping online for a while for a used Honda Odyssey, but we found that it wasn't very much more to buy a new one. We had been dealing with a local dealership over the phone (and Ryan was dealing with them via email) and we managed to make a deal. Ryan was excited to get it done and insisted that we head to Round Rock (just outside Austin) to pick it up THE DAY HE GOT BACK. Motivated, huh?

Anyway, we LOVE it. I never thought I'd be a mini-van Mom, but I'm seriously hooked. Caroline loves it, too. =)

Man, its been a while...sorry about that! The past month or so has been a bit of a whirlwind and we've enjoyed EVERY second (well, almost every second). Here's a recap:

Ryan was due to come home in mid-April, but thanks to Mt. Eyjafjallajokull (don't ask me how to pronounce that) erupting in Iceland and closing ALL of northern European airspace, he was delayed day after day after day. It was frustrating, to say the least. He finally made it home on Monday, April 19. I got 3 phone calls during the night delaying his welcome home ceremony, but we FINALLY got to get him mid-morning. I don't think there were 2 happier girls anywhere. =)

A few pics of the field as we impatiently awaited wrapping our arms around Ryan...

When they said to "CHARGE", Ryan didn't see us...but we sure saw him!
Pardon my tear-stained face...
Caroline took a little time to warm up to Daddy...
