Good Morning

I had a pretty good day yesterday. Taylor, Gus and I took dad's jeep out. It was perfect weather. We went down to the cemetery to visit Mamie. I got really upset about where they placed the headstone. It is too far from where she is actually buried. I feel like I am being a crazy mom by I want it moved. Taylor and I talked to my parents last night and I couldn't hold the tears in. I want Mamie to be in between the 4 of us. Dad and mom were very understanding and we are going to visit with the cemetery and have my parents plots moved to the other side of Taylor and I and the headstone moved. My stomach was in knots thinking about it but after our discussion I had a huge feeling of relief. I brought home her wreath and am going to redo it for the fall as well. I miss that sweet baby so much I can hardly stand it.

Last Tuesday we got a call about a friend that I went to high school with that lost her baby at 20 weeks. She had gone in for her big ultrasound when they couldn't find his heartbeat. My hearts hurts so badly for this couple. I began stressing out because Northwest Arkansas doesn't have Mamie's Poppy Plates in their hospitals yet. I wanted her to have a plate. Thankfully the next morning a friend headed up to be by her side and we sent a plate with her. Now she has this beautiful plate to remember her sweet little boy by and I am so thankful we were able to get one up to her.

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.
