Week 8

We had a great Thanksgiving here at the house.  It was so fun hosting our first Thanksgiving.  Mom, Dad, Brit, Jason, Silas, Cosy, and Maddie came over.  We had tons of food and it was so yummy.  Everyone just vegged here all day.  The boys of course watched football ALL day and night :)  It was so fun and relaxing.  Friday was game day.  We met Drew and Ashley over at Drew's dads house for more turkey dinner and visiting.  Taylor and I were so excited to see the twins.  They looked so adorable in their matching red outfits.  Drew and Taylor went to the game and use girls headed over to our house to play with the babies.  It was a very exciting game and WOO HOO we beat LSU!!!  The last part of the game was so exciting.  I kind of was sad I didn't go until the  boys called and told us how cold it was.  We all decided to go eat sushi and then head down to the Rev Room to see Boom Kinetic.  I was excited I could go since no one can smoke in there.  It was fun seeing people.  Zach and his wife I found out are prego and due in May.  I swear everyone is pregnant right now :)  It is so fun.  

Saturday was a pretty lazy day for me.  I wasn't feeling to well and was super tired from staying out the night before.  I pretty much took naps and sat by the fire.  Oh I did take pictures of Hayden and Cooper in the yard.  They turned out so cute. 

So we are 8 weeks :)  I can't believe it.  Taylor and I were reading out of our pregnancy book which we do every week to see what our Poppy Seed is doing.  It amazes me every week what I read.  Here is what baby center sent.

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby —about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

Taylor left for New Jersey yesterday and I will meet him there on Friday.  I can't wait.  We are going to spend the weekend in New York.  I will post some pictures when we get back.  

Another fun thing out found out.  Katy Breen Robertson text me the other night and she and David are also due in July.  How fun is that!  

Hope everyone is having a good hump day.


  1. OMG, I had no idea you were preggers! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Thanks for inviting me to view your blog! I can't wait to follow along:)!

  2. I am so excited for you and Taylor!! I am pumped to have another blog to stock too!! Love you guys!

  3. Sarah,

    I'm finally glad to be able to send you and Taylor a message. Congrats on the the soon to be new arrival. I'm so happy for you and from reading your messages, you are as well.

    I wrote this great message about 2 weeks ago and still have in my send file but it wouldn't let me send. Hmm. Not sure. Something like when I worked for the Arkansas Gazette back in the day, they had a surprise party for Karen and I, the one thing I remembered the most is a banner that said, "Life as you know it will never be the same" I was concerned because I didn't understand at the time. When Steven was born I completely understood. That's when life truly began.

  4. Meredith, I thought I would surprise you by sending the blog invite :)

    I am so excited to have my girlfriends read along with our progress. We are so excited and we thought making a blog journal of everything that happens would be so cool to look back on.

    I am so glad you made it on the blog and left me a comment. It is so great to hear from you. You totally made me tear up. I never cry :) I must be hormonal :)

    Thanks guys for your comments and be sure to check back in. I will be posting more as the weeks go by :)

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
