Sorry I have been MIA from this board. It has been insane and trying to keep up with my DDC takes a lot of time!

So...I am having a little girl! We found out on Friday. We are super excited for her to come! We are naming her Marsela Luljeta. With this information my mom started to think about her blessing gown. I have promised her that she could make my baby girl's blessing gown since I can remember. I went to the store and bought a pattern today (they were on sale for $1). When I sent my mom the picture she told me that the dress I picked out is almost exactly the same as the dress she made for me when I was blessed. Of course my mom has all of my baby things including the blessing dress. We think that we will be blessing Marsi in the dress I was blessed in and the dress will be handed down to me. I am so excited for that! I have never seen my dress so I will have my 3 white dresses in my cedar chest soon.

I am still pretty sick. I feel Marsi quite often. I wanted a boy, but I am in love with this little girl! DH is now protective of both of his girls. It is so cute for him to rub my belly and tell me where baby is at that time. He is starting to feel quite connected to Marsi. It is so fun.

I thought you ladies needed an update and I couldn't really talk about the blessing dress in my DDC.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Congrats! I'm so excited for you Rachel! that's great about your blessing dress! Marsi's name is beautiful, what nationality is it? I hope you're able to get some releif from the sickness soon. being sick this long can't be fun.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

Her name is pure Albanian for her Dad's heritage. The names from Albania are beautiful for the most part. Her first name is the same as DH's cousin and her middle name is my MIL's name. We picked it out forever ago. We were going to call her Mars, but we decided we like Marsi better the day we found out she is a she.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I cannot wait to see the dress. We haven't done a special blessing dress yet.
