The News

When I was pregnant with Micah all I thought about for the first 20 weeks was whether we would have a boy or a girl. This time around, to tell you the truth I never even thought about it until week 19, when I became me again. I'll tell you what though, my first week well, I spent a lot of time wondering about the sex of this baby. Ever since Stacy told Micah we were having a baby, he just knew it was a baby sister. He wouldn't hear anything about the possibility that it was a brother. I talked to a lot of people who told me that children have intuition. People told me all kinds of stories about how as children they knew what their sibling would be, and stories about people's children knowing. Although I had absolutly NO idea what this baby was.
First thing yesterday morning was my appointment. Stacy and Micah came along too. We were so excited and at this point explained to Micah for the 100th time that God decides whether he'll have a brother or a sister, even though he heard this, I still don't think that he understood quite yet. I had my regular appointment and my Dr. asked if I had been scheduled for an ultrasound. I told him that I didn't know. Then he checked and found out that I wasn't. With Micah the Dr. scheduled me for all appointments and at my 20 week I found out the gender. So I guess I just assumed I would find out yesterday, but I didn't (at my doctor) I'm scheduled for an ultrasound for the 16th at my Dr's office.
When we left the office both Stacy and I were just plain out sad. How can you go from thinking that you're finding out the gender, to waiting another week and a half?!! I nearly cried until I thought of a solution.... I used my iphone to google 3d ultra sounds. I called Images from the Womb and was SOO Happy when I was able to make an appointment for yesterday afternoon. I'll tell you what, after the rough time I've time, yesterday was just plain out wonderful! We had a wonderfully enjoyable experience and would highly reccomend it to everyone. It didn't hurt that we got a ton more than we paid for. Our baby was all wrapped up and hiding for the first few minutes but finally showed Himself to us. We're so excited to be having another boy. I'm sure I'm meant to be a boys Mama! Micah has decided that his brother will be called "Onion Ring," if it had been a sister she'd have been "French fry." Take a look at our little Onion Ring!

I'm back!

After being sick for 19 weeks, I am finally myself again. The Robinson family has been through A LOT during the past few months, but after taking a week to catch up on a little house work and having a little fun family time together, I think I am ready to begin to blog again. I do not plan to bore you with any stories from "while I was sick," I'm just going to move on and share some happy things. I got well just in time for Micah's Easter Egg hunt at his school. All of the M-F classes were invited and probably 75? kids showed up. There were 1000 eggs hidden in Mrs. Scott's yard. I was just sure Micah would get a lot of eggs, he was SO excited and couldn't wait. The Easter bunny came to visit and Micah Loved that!
The kids waited patiently until the whistle was blown, and off they went.
Micah did not get half as many eggs as I expected. I thought that he would rack up. He didn't, I caught him taking 4 out of his basket and putting them back on the ground, when I asked him what he was doing he told me, "the pink and purple ones were for the girls." I tried to explain that eggs were eggs, no matter the color, but it was too late, the poor guy only got 12 eggs. Maybe better luck next time :)
Micah began the count down to Easter at 5 days. He was SO excited. Every morning he as soon as he woke up he told me how many days there were left. For the second hunt of the year he was a little more prepared, Stacy tried to train him. He was just sure he was going to win and let everyone know that he had the most eggs (which was far from true.) He came in 3rd out of 5 for the little kids. We all had a great time spending time with our family and eating yummy food (since I can eat again.) Here are a couple more pics, stay tuned because I hope to be doing some more blogging real soon :)
