18 Weeks

I am 18 weeks today and feeling good.  We had a really nice weekend.  Friday I went to see Dr. Lei and I plan on seeing her ever week for a while.  She said my circulation was not very good and so she is working on that and my stress level.  I feel very calm right now and am not letting myself worry about this cyst.  It is all going to be okay.  I thought I felt Mamie moving around when I was laying on the table with needles stuck all in me but I am really not sure.  I hope to feel her soon if not.  I know she is moving around in there.  She has always been kicking around in my ultra sounds. :)  

I ordered her bedding on Friday and can't wait to get started on the nursery.  I am hoping Karen (aka Mimi) will help me with the drawing of the tree and birds on the wall :)  I haven't asked her yet but she is an amazing artist.  

We have had tons of people commenting on how much they love our name.  So many people know or have family with the name Mamie.  I think that is so cool.  I actually had a friend from Sunday school email today saying her husbands grandmothers name is Mamie.  We think it is going to fit her so well.  

I leave for Vegas on Sunday and I can't wait to see my photography friends and catch up.  It should be an interesting week.   I will try to blog while I am there.

So anyway, I am 18 weeks today and here is what baby center say's Mamie is up to this week.

Hello, Sarah!

Head to rump, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, although he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.


  1. Just wanted you to know that I am praying for sweet Mamie! I know she will be just fine and that everything will work out! She is one lucky little girl to have such sweet parents :)

  2. You know I'll do anything for you! Mamie is already a much loved little girl!

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…

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 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.
