Yeah, so life is crazy. Here is a run down of what's been going on (started writing this on Thursday):
- Most Asked Question #1: "Are you getting any sleep?"...answer NO, well, a little. Will is actually really good and he isn't super fussy, but he is getting up about every 3 hours (and I feed him for an hour) so I'm getting about 2 hours of sleep in between. Ends up being about 4-6 hours a night, but all broken up. If anyone knows me well enough, I love my sleep. A friends husband used to give me a really hard time because I really try to get 8-10 hours of sleep a night...HA, I can't even imagine that much uninterrupted. We're surviving, but it's a lot harder to "nap" during the day with two of them.
- Most Asked Question #2: "Does Ella like William?"...answer YES, she loves him. When he cries she looks for him and she loves to touch him and kiss his head.
- Most Asked Question #3: "What are you going to call William?"...this one is tricky. I call him either Will or William...Joe is trying to get everyone to call him Billy...really, I don't care...he can have as many nicknames as people want to give him (nice ones only). Oh, and again, no Willy!
- I don't think I have written anything about this (see what happens with a second kid). Both William and Ella went to the urologist today (for separate issues). Ella has had a few UTI's (urinary tract infection) and they were concerned that she doesn't empty her bladder completely (associated with the lack of muscle tone)...they are going to review a few of her tests she's already had and they may have her do a few more in the coming weeks. William had a natural circumcision and so we needed to see the urologist to make sure everything is okay. It is, but he will have to have surgery to correct some skin issues and we are scheduled for June 11th. Yeah, I've decided all Mitchell children are going to require extra attention...didn't want to be upstaged by his sister I guess.
