A little under the weather!!

I must admit that I am tired of this winter weather we have been having. I love the saying "April showers bring May flowers" not April showers bring a blanket of snow and ruin your flowers. But, I guess I shouldn't complain too much because we do need the moisture.....just not the COLD. Along with this wonderful weather came the nasty cold AGAIN (which by the way, this is the 3rd time since December that I have had it). It started with Bryan and I thought that it would bypass me, but NOPE.....I got a good case of it this time. A good friend of mine, Lindsey, told me of a great remedy......take a shot of Tabasco sauce and it will clear your sinuses and will speed up the labor process. Sorry Linds, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I am feeling much better though.

Speaking of labor, I thought I would just give a quick update. I thought for sure that this baby would come early, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. I really think that she and Kate are having too much fun and she is waiting until the very last day to show up. I'm okay with that, though. At least I know I only have 11 more days to go (I have a C-section scheduled for the 21st). We are really excited for this new little addition. I had debated whether or not to use the same nursery or use Kate's clothes for this baby, but I really want to keep Kate's memory alive. I finally brought myself to go through all of Kate's things and organize and box things up for later. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I miss her so much, but am looking forward to this new chapter of our lives.

I too am glad that you are going to keep blogging. I feel connected with you this way. I love the quote you have by President Hinckley about Faith. You are a woman of faith.

My parents lost their first baby--a girl--and some of my most treasured pictures are of me wearing the clothes that she had worn. Even though I didn't have a chance to know her on the earth, I felt a bond with her because of those few shared things.

I did the same with my dauthers--our first passed away, and although I put a few special things away that were just "hers", I kept most things out to use with our second daughter. I hope she'll feel the same special bond with her sister that I did with mine.

Great job Marcae, I can't imagine how hard it was for you to go through Kate's things, but I bet it was healing too. I am so excited to hear about the new arrival, she'll be so lucky to have such great parents.
I love the blog already!

Your Blog has seriously touched a lot of peoples lives. A girl at my work was talking about your blog and I asked how she knew you and she didn't! She told me how she had kept up with your blog all the time and thought that you and your family were so amazing! There are so many people out there that are thinking of you, that you don't even know! So, I too am SO glad you're continuing to blog with this new chapter in your lives! Can't wait to see this sweet baby :) Love you to death Marcae. P.s. Thanks for the tip on the car seat, we are LOVING our Cowmooflage! ;P

Terri said...

Marcae it was so fun to see you at Tai Pan in St. George. The things you chose for Kates grave look perfect. You are so lucky you have a date to look forward too this month. Maybe the cold days will go by faster. Ohh speaking of cold...Mia and I sure got something nasty. I feel horrible but Iam not sure I can do the tabasco sauce. Ohhh well. Lets get together this next week. Love ya.

I'm glad you're starting to feel better. I'm sorry you had to go through Kate's things by yourself. I think she would love having her baby sister sleep in her room. I think it will be the perfect way for them to stay very connected. I'll talk to you soon!

The Hawaiian Howells said...

katie said...

Love the new blog!
I hope you are feeling better.
I can't iimagine how emotional that must have been to go through all of Kate's stuff. I take such comfort in knowing that she is hanging out with her little sister. They must be enjoying each other so much!

Marcae and Bryan,
I cannot stop thinking of you both. I wanted some time to pass, so that I can let you know of my experience with my son. He has an aortic stenosis and this will be part of his life forever. It manafests itself in the sport he loves...wrestling. So we struggle and he fights to keep up with those whos hearts flow normally. If you would like to chat personally when the time is right for you please do not hesitate to email.(dmiller4@frontiernet.net) I am so greatful for your inspiring words, I wish the blog was avalible when I experienced mine, what a way to get out raw emotions and not hold on to them. God Bless you both and your new little addition.I know that God realizes the humble servants he has on this earth and you are both included in this fold. Have a beautiful day....Sam

Hi Marcae,
It's been a few years since I've seen you (since SUU). I've been checking out your blog for the last couple of months. I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet Kate. The love and faith that you have for Heavenly Father shows in your smile, eyes and the manner in which you live your life. I just want to hug you. You are such an amazing person. I'm excited for the birth of your daughter. Congrats to your bro w/ the mission call. Please keep in touch. Love you, Jen Nessinger Strand

Im glad you updated us on the labor status. I keep checking everyones site that is prego... Kelly, and Summer have both had theirs... and I keep wondering about you. Good luck with it... I'm sure things will go smoothly, and she will be just beautiful like her mommy. You are right... I think she and Kate are spending some well deserved time together before she makes her grand entrance. Best Wishes!
