Day 366 - a note from my mom

Wow! A year and a day! We are so blessed to have you and know you, Mary. Part of me wishes you could stay my tiny baby forever. I just love to hold and snuggle you, I love to kiss your sweet cheeks and tiny baby toes. I love the way your baby hair feels so soft. And I love the way the top of your little head smells so good. But I also love all the things you are learning to do. I love to watch as you grow and discover. I'm certain that God has an awesome plan for your life! You are surrounded by so much love. Even beyond your mommy and daddy and four big siblings there are so many who love you. And beyond all those wonderful people you are loved by The One who created you The One who knit you together in my womb, The One who knows you perfectly! Psalm 139

I am so honored to be your mommy. I hope you will one day understand that every day I give thanks to God for blessing me with you and your sister and brothers. My greatest prayer for you, my girl, is that you will grow to to know the love of our God and Savior, that you will cherish His word and live the life He has for you.

All My Love ~ Mommy

Day 358

Sixth Disease, Fifth Disease or Rubella????
Anyone familiar with any of these conditions?

Our poor Mary has had a fever and cold/cough for three days now. She has moments when she seems almost normal, she starts to smile or play, but most of the time she has this winey cry, her thoat sounds sore and horse, her eyes look tired and she is very uninterested in eating or nursing. She will in little bits, but not her normal appetite at all.

Last night when I saw the spots appearing on her arms, legs and face I was hoping for chicken pox, but by this morning I could tell thats not what they were (no blisters). So we called the clinic and they said come in and they would take a look. They put us in the last appointment of the day. We ruled out strep throat rash by doing a throat culture and the Dr. at the clinic said it sould be Sixth Disease, Fifth Disease, a mild case of Rubella, or some other viral infection that has reulted in a rash. In any of these cases there is no "treatment". We are using Tylonal when her fever gets up around 103 or when she seems too uncomfortable (which has been often today).

It just SUCKS to not be able to fix what hurts my baby girl ... I want to cry right along with her. So we rock and we walk and we sing and we pray

Day 357

This pink outfit is almost 14 years old ... it was my big sisters when she was almost one! Mommy tried to take my picture in it the same way she took my sister's picture way back then, even tried to set me by the same big stuffed bear, but I'm pretty crabby today and did not want to sit there very long. Here are a few pictures of what my sister looked like when she wore it:
