Alivia and Owen

Last weekend Amanda, Taylor and I headed up to Fayetteville for the Razorback game. I was very excited to see my friends but especially little Alivia and Owen. They are both getting so big and it just warms my heart to see all the new things they are doing or saying.
Alivia is still so chilled and is just at that good lovey baby stage. She let me snuggle up with her which I loved doing, of course. Owen, on the other hand, is all over the place! We played chase forever, and that laugh.... awe.... so sweet. He is really starting to use his words and was calling me Titi and Taylor, Tay. Every time I look at him I think about Mamie. I start thinking in my head about what she would be doing. They would be the same age. Would she be using her words like Owen? Would she like to read books and snuggle up? I find myself wanting to be with every precious child I meet more and more. I want to just hang on to them.
Sunday morning after I dropped Taylor at the airport I went into Dustin and Ashley's room. They were both laying on their sides on the bed with Alivia in between them. She was rolling around and making her sweet little noises. Seeing the way they looked at her and the way she looked back at them... well, words can't describe the tenderness and love. I wished so badly that was Taylor, Mamie and me. I wish we were able to have that early morning of loving on our precious Mamie. Kissing her sweet soft skin and looking at her in awe at every new little thing she did. It just isn't fair but you know what.... being able to see that with my friend makes it just a little better.
It was a great weekend and I truly can't wait to get back up there and see those two.

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.
