Good Morning

Good morning everyone,
I feel like today is going to be a very good day. I am up having my cup of coffee and my quiet time. The snow is still covering all the trees and ground outside and I can't believe how many beautiful Cardinals I have seen. Come to think of it we rarely ever saw Cardinals till Mamie died. Now we see them everywhere. I looked up the symbolism of a Cardinal and this is what I found.

Animal Symbolism of the Cardinal

The symbolic meaning of cardinals deals with vibrancy and brilliance.

As we observe the cardinal – particularly against the backdrop of the stark winter months, we are reminded that even when things appear bleak or isolated, there is always the presence of beauty, hope, and love.

Cardinals encourage us to express our brilliance and reveal our truest selves. Their radiant red is a symbol for us to recognize the gifts in our hearts that we have to give to others in love and friendship.


Pretty cool right :) They really are so beautiful and amazing to watch. I believe this is just another sign sent to Taylor and I from Mamie. A sign that she is okay and that her baby brother is going to be okay.

We have received so many positive emails and stories for people all over that have run into the same issue with soft markers in their growing baby. I can't tell you how good it makes us feel to hear from you all.

Lets all raise our coffee's this morning to a good day :)




  1. Hello Sarah,
    I seen your blog on another blog I follow called kellys korner. I just wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for your loss of your little precious baby girl. I also checked out your page for Poppy Plates and what you are doing is simply amazing! I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks, and we named our precious baby poppy as well. Just seeing poppies reminds me of that memorable time in our lives, even if it was cut so short.
    I want you to know that I am praying for you during your journey with your new little one. Let God keep your spirits up and continue to walk with you along the way!

  2. Hello, just wanted to let you know I am praying for your little boy. Our second son had one, possibly two, choroid plexus cysts on his brain at the 20 week ultrasound. The 4 weeks between that appointment and our level II ultrasound was the worst period of my life but thankfully, four weeks later, the cysts could no longer be detected! I hope you will cling to your faith and know that in many circumstances, these cysts are just part of normal fetal development. Still, it was not statistics that got me through such an uncertain time but rather knowing that God is the One in control.

  3. Sarah, did you get that picture of that cardinal? It sounds like the Lord is taking care of you and that baby boy. Miss you friend and keep us posted.

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.
