Weekend in Boise and OUR EXCITING NEWS!

Last weekend, we went to Boise because Brian had tickets to some college bball games. So Lukas and I went along to see some family too. We spent most of the weekend at Brian's sisters cause my sister had a sick kid and since we are finally to the point where no one in our house is sick, I thought maybe we should stay away. (Sorry Tina. We would have loved to see you more!)
And from the pics above, you can see that Lukas had a great time. We took a few walks to the park and even had an early Easter egg hunt for the kids in Rachael's back yard. Lukas had a lot of fun with that. He loved having his cousins to play with and got lots of exercise from all the running around that he did.
Lukas' surgery is in one week from today and can I just say that I am a nervous wreck! I just dont want to have to put my little boy through that but everyone keeps telling me he will thank me when he is older and everything will work out. They better be right. I am going to be sobbing the whole time he is having surgery I am sure. I wish I could be in there holding his hand and making sure he is ok. But then again, maybe I dont want to see it. Oh well, it is not like I have a choice. So keep little Lukas in your prayers that his eye can get fixed and everything goes well.
And now for the news you have been waiting for........ (For those of you that dont already know)
WE ARE EXPECTING BABY #2 !!!!!!! We are so excited and Lukas is beyond excited to have a sibling. He keeps saying it is a sister but I guess we will see if he is right. We find out on April 10 what we are having. (Two weeks from today!) I am about 18 weeks along right now and due on August 30. (One day before Lukas' b-day. And no, we didnt plan it that way. It just happened.)
But I am feeling really good and everything seems to be going good. I was sick up until 11 weeks along and then I woke up one day and it was like the nausea just disappeared. Not that I can complain cause I was just nauseous alot, no puking. So that is good. Lukas is so sweet though cause I try not to carry him and he knows why and so when he sees me carrying things he always asks me if it is too heavy. And he loves to kiss my belly and talk to his baby. He is going to be a great big brother! So... there you have it.... one of the reasons I havent blogged alot lately. I guess I have just had other stuff on my mind. But now that the secret is out, I will blog more regularly. Bye for now!

Sorry I havent blogged in forever. We are without a computer again but we are getting a new one soon so I will get back to blogging soon. I am on my parents computer right now and just thought I would do a quick update. Lukas' eye surgery is scheduled for April 3rd. I will be so happy when that is done. At least it is actually going to finally happen. I thought he would be in a eye patch forever. I am still nervous about it but I guess that is to be expected. We are going to Boise next weekend cause Brian got some tickets to some March Madness basketball games. So of course we cant miss out on those. Lukas and I are going along to hang out with some fam so that will be fun. My brother, Landon and his wife, welcomed a new baby girl into their family a couple of days ago. They named her Addy Lynn. She weighed in at 8 pounds 10 ounces. So she is a healthy little tyke. We are excited to meet her. Over all, everything is going good and we are happy! Keep checking in on us though cause if you havent already heard, we have some very exciting news!!!!!! (I will post more soon. I promise.)
