A few of my favorite things

Lately there are a few things that have brought huge smiles to my face:

Homemade strawberry ice cream

Watching the hummingbirds from our kitchen window

Ice water


Lots of pillows

Feeling "butterflies" in my tummy

A couple of weeks ago I started to notice this feeling that I can only describe as "butterflies"... it felt almost the same as that excited/nervous fluttering feeling you get at times. I couldn't tell for sure at first if it was just me or if it was the babies. But, as time has gone on, the "flutterings" have gotten stronger and clearer. I love feeling the tiny movements of these two little ones... it brings me more joy than I can describe. I love them so much already and can't wait to hold them in my arms. I'm excited for the movements to get strong enough for Marc to be able to feel them and find the same joy in feeling them move. I don't know why we've been so blessed. My heart is constantly full, to overflowing, for this awesome blessing. Or, I guess I should say these awesome blessings!

Don't keep saying why are you being so blessed! You and Marc are AWESOME people and you deserved to be blessed!! Going through this hard time you were so strong and stayed with the gospel and still did what you were supposed to do. Unfortunately I know a few couples that didn't stay strong and left the church. You deserve this and I know that you are enjoying it so much. I still pray for your babies every night that they will make it here safely! I hope I get to keep doing that for a lot longer :) It makes me feel a little closer to you guys even though you are so far away now. I was just thinking today I want an update on your babies. I am so happy that you are feeling them move it is so much fun to feel them!

I came here today because I needed to witness these miracles. It is SUCH a blessing to ME to see this miracle unfolding. Heavenly Father loves you to endless pieces. So thankful for this blessing for your little family. These little ones are super lucky. Thank you for giving me continued hope.

I don't even know what to say. It was almost like I could feel that BUTTERFLY feeling when I read that word. It is amazing. It made me smile. It warmed my heart. What a rush of wonderful emotions. I love it. Sometimes I wish I could feel that feeling when I wanted to. It is miraculous. A sensation of no other. I can't stand the excitement for you and marc. LOVE IT! LOVE YOU!

How exciting to finally get to experience all of this for yourself! I am so happy for you and your little butterflys!

Marc and Megan said...

Jenni, the joy we feel is so overwhelming still... I just feel like we've been too blessed! Thank you so much for your prayers for us!

Kim, you've been on my mind a lot... I hope that your own miracle comes to you soon. You have been tried and I pray that relief comes soon.

Carly, it really is amazing, isn't it? It's even better than what I ever imagined!

Brenley, I never thought I ever would. I can't wait until the little ones are here safely in my arms and we can start to have the experiences that you're having with McCoy! It has been such a joy to watch him grow!

Butterflies! The best feeling in the world! I am so excited for you to finally be feeling this part of motherhood. It is my favorite and reminds me everytime what a miracle it is to have another person (or two!) growing inside you! Enjoy those butterflies, soon they will be soccer kicks! (a different type of joy :) love you lots!

Christy, it really is thrilling! I've heard others say how amazing it is and I've even felt others' tummies when their baby is kicking, but until feeling it for myself I never knew how awesome it would feel! :)
