Hello World

Hello world, I know I know it has been a while since I posted last. Things have been a little busy around here. My photography business usually slows down the first of the year but has not done so this year. I am so thankful for having a job that I absolutely love. Mamie's Poppy Plates has been also keeping me super busy. We are working on a new awesome website and I signed papers last Friday down at Mitchell Williams to get our 501(c)(3). When that comes back we will officially be a non-profit organization. I can't believe it! I have spent some time up in NWA also meeting with people and we have partnered up with Imagine Studio and have formed a group of girls up there to head up MPP there. It is an awesome group of women who have been personally touched by a loss themselves or have had a friend that has had a loss. I am truly amazed everyday who God brings into my life. He is so good and I know this project is going to go so far thanks to so many of you out there that are supporting us. Stay tuned on more from Mamie's Poppy Plates. Be sure to check out our blog and friend us on facebook. We need your support, and so do all the families out there going through this horrible loss.
On a different note, we have been busy working on Burke's room. I am excited about how it is turning out. I will post pictures soon. It is SO cute and so what I wanted. Natural, earthly and vintage. Now all we need is our baby boy.
I am in my 23rd week now and boy is this baby moving and shaking in there. He kicked so hard the other night I saw my stomach move. I think I am in for it when he gets bigger. That little booger might break a rib ;) I am going in to see Dr. Sellers next week for my glucose test. I really hope that all comes back fine so I don't have to stay there all day drinking that yummy orange drink :) I also talked to our genetics counselor yesterday and we have moved our big appointment that was originally scheduled for the 31st to the 21st. YAHOO!!!! I am very anxious to see Burke and make sure everything is okay. I feel positive that it is. Once that is over we can move forward and get past all of that craziness.
There are so many babies on the way. Sarah, one of my best friends, had her baby girl Genna Kay a little over a week ago. She is SO adorable. I am going over on Tuesday to get my hands on her and take some family pictures of the three of them. I can't wait. I love photographing families so much. I love documenting real life! It is so special to me and I know when these families look back on their pictures they will see exactly what they were doing in that very moment. Anyway, enough talking. I just wanted to say hi and that I am still here and blogging. Don't give up on me :)
Everyone have a wonderful weekend

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.
