24 Weeks

I am behind again on blogging.  Last week I was 24 weeks.  6 MONTHS!  I couldn't believe it when someone was asking me how far along I was and I said 24 weeks and they said "So like 6 months."  The weeks are flying by.  I shot an 8 hr wedding that past Saturday in Hot Springs.  We rolled into Little Rock around 1:30am.  I was so tired when I crawled into bed but not as tired as I thought I would be.  The next morning I woke up around 9:30 and was ready to roll.  Taylor and I eat a late breakfast and then headed out to Good Earth to get some mulch for the flower beds.  It was such a beautiful day.  Mom and Dad ended up coming over to help us.  We bought a bunch of plants that were 50% off and so we wanted to get them in the ground.  The yard looks SO good.  I will have to take a picture of it.  We have HUGE dogwoods in the back that have just bloomed and they are so beautiful.  I love Spring.

Last week was just a normal busy work week.  I have hired a new girl Amanda to help me in the office and she is amazing.  She is such a hard worker and wants to learn.  I wanted to get someone to help and on their feet before Mamie comes so I can have more time with my girl than sitting in front of the computer.  :) 

Mamie, you daddy almost had a wreck last Thursday when he could see you kicking in my belly from across the car.  You have become so active in there.  When we got to where we were going he announced it to the whole group.  He is so proud!  You also move a lot when Silas is around and talking.  You guys are going to be the best of friends.  

Pibby finished the changing table and it looks awesome.  Now all we have to do is find a crib.  I still want to hold off and see if the metal bed comes in.  I also found some fabrics for the drapes and the cushion that I am going to have made for my Aunt Mamie's rocking chair that  Mom is going to let us barrow.  :)

That is about it.  I will have Brit take a picture of my belly this week.  It is getting big :)

Here is what baby is doing at 24 weeks

Hello, Sarah!

Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but hisbody is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

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.
