Riley is 13 Months Old Already!

I've entered into my second year with a bang!! In the past two weeks I've started standing up on my own and taking steps, and I'm up to being able to walk 7-8 feet at a time if I feel like it! I seem to be taking after the Bryant women and their love to shop! I like to put my bucket in the crook of my arm like a purse and walk around with it like I am shopping. I also am able to say a new word-"byebye". To me it means that I am going somewhere, not that anyone is leaving me, so I love to wave to myself and say byebye.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of my family in less than a week!!

UhOh is 12 Weeks Along

This is my first post on the blog : ) Hello, my name is "Uhoh". I am excited to be joining this family at the end of June. At mommy's appointment yesterday her doctor told her that she would be induced on either June 23, 24, or 25 if I don't come before that. Mommy's doctor is going out of town on June 27 so this assures that her own doctor can deliver me. Mommy was able to hear my heart beat on the doppler for the first time yesterday-a fast 170 beat per minute. This is much faster than the 140 that the ultrasound showed just 4 weeks ago! In addition to discussing the induction date, mommy also scheduled the ultrasound to find out my gender! It will be on February 9, 2009. She is very excited, although impatient. She is thinking that I am a boy because the pregnancy is so different from my big sister's, but she's just going to have to wait 8 more weeks to find out....

Here's mommy's belly at only 12 weeks!! If you look back to big sister Riley's belly pictures, you will see that mommy wasn't this big with her until MUCH later!
