Catching up: 20 Weeks

I was 20 weeks last week. Half way there. I know I say this every time but man this is flying by. I can't imagine how fast it is going to go once wedding season kicks in. So there have been 2 huge consignment shows this past week. Brit and I found some adorable dresses and onsies for Mamie. This girl has more clothes than her momma now :) Friday Ashley and Dustin came to stay with us and they brought us another sweet little book. "On the Night You Were Born" by Nancy Tillman. Talk about shedding some tears. Ah it is so sweet. Thanks guys, you have been so thoughtful. I can't wait to read it to her. Saturday morning we headed to Memphis to go to a Grizzlies game with a group of friends. The 4 of us met up with Stuart and Alyson for some amazingly bad for you food at Gus's Fried Chicken. It was so good. Taylor and I have been watching "Man Vs. Food" on the travel channel and he ate there on one of his episodes. Funny thing that we are watching a food channel while I am pregnant. :) After lunch we headed out into the blizzard to do a little shopping. We girls that is :) Allison took us to Pottery Barn outlet where we found this adorable chair and duck for Mamie's room. I can't wait to get a cushion made for it. We had a blast in Memphis. It was so great hanging out with everyone. Mamie loves the loud music at the game. She would kick so hard. I am pretty sure she was breaking it down in my stomach. She is going to be a dancer like her Momma ;) So here is what baby center sent us this past week about Mamie. She is getting big. Hello, Sarah! You're at the halfway mark — congratulations! Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (The way your baby is measured changes now.) He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (although some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

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…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah

Peekaboo Article in NWA

Peekaboo magazine did an story on our loss with Mamie and how I came up with Mamie's Poppy Plates. I wanted to share it all with you. My good friend Meredith also has her story with Miller in the magazine so be sure to pick one up if you can. I will get her article and post it here in a couple of days. - Sarah
