So last Thursday W went in for a outpatient surgery to repair a communicating hydrosil (sp?). I have no idea how to spell that. I won't go into exactly what that is, but the surgery was close something off so that he would not get a hernia. It turns out that when the doctor went in he found that he did have a small hernia and was able to take care of it, so that's good. Our prayers were answered and W did extremely well. We had a lot of concerns, but he has been fine. He woke up from the anesthesia really well and only had Motrin for a couple of days. If he had that then he was fine. Running, jumping, and squatting. He still won't look at the incision. I think he wants to pretend it isn't there. It's pretty funny because when he talks about going to the hospital he says, "doctor fix my pee-pee" like he is really excited. It is nice to have such a good boy.
Again on Saturday night we went to Russ' brothers house and had a nice dinner and Easter Egg hunt and we did the little activity of looking through the 12 eggs that talk about the real reason for Easter. It was a time to be reverent, but with cousins sometimes that can be hard. William did really well and was very sweet. When his grandma would play the piano he would climb up next to her and play some extra notes, but it sounded pretty to me.
We had a very fun Easter. On Saturday we went with my family to a fun park and a little egg hunt and had fun riding the rides. W loved the train and being with his cousins. It was getting a little too hot by the time we left and W's face was bright red.
So our big news is we actually found out about 2 and a half weeks ago (and I am sure that anyone who reads this already knows) but it's not official if it is not on the blog, right? We are having a GIRL! A lot of people have asked us how we feel about this so I will let you all know. At first we both thought that William should have a brother and that another boy would be fun, not to mention easier and cheaper since we have a lot of boy stuff. Russ started having dreams that it was a girl and I started having dreams it was a boy. I really felt like it was a girl though, because this pregnancy was different. I did not get as sick or throw up as much with this one and with William I craved fruit and too much fruit still makes me queezy. With this one I want veggies! I also felt, what am I talking about, feel more emotional with this one so that points to girl. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea and when I found out for sure I was so excited. I was mostly excited to see that she was all there and everything looked normal and healthy. Russ was not sure how he felt at first, but he is getting used to the idea and will have so much fun with a little girl.
