Baby Burke is here!

Baby Burke decided to come a little early and as you all know I was hoping he would decide to do that before his sisters birthday on June 26th. I woke up Saturday the 11th not feeling great. I had a really sharp pain in my right side of my stomach. Taylor had gone for a run and my phone was all the way in the kitchen. After about an hour of trying to get to the phone I managed to call he and Britney. I was so scared. The pain was so sharp I really thought something was wrong. They got me in the car and we headed to labor and delivery at St. Vincent's. After being on the monitor they saw that I was having contractions pretty steady but I was only progressed to a 2. Dr. Sellers was not on call and was on a 100 mile bike ride that morning. I of course sent him a text. We had all been saying that was probably the day I would go into labor. I had told him to put a motor on his bike just in case and we so wouldn't laugh if he showed up in his bike shorts to deliver. Just as long as he was there. With my history they said we wouldn't be leaving the hospital without having this baby. They decided to start a low dose of pitocin to get the ball rolling a little faster. Taylor and I were nervous since I was only 36 weeks and 5 days. What if his lungs weren't ready. I began praying for a healthy baby boy. Hours went by and around 4pm I decided I would get my epidural so I could rest. This had all started around 9:30am that morning so I was pretty tired. Dr. Sellers finished his race and came in around 6 and broke my water. The night went on and at 6:28am Sunday morning Burke was born weighing 5lbs. 13oz and 19inches long. It was so amazing and we were very thankful he arrived safe and sound. Below are some pictures Amanda took. She did an amazing job and I put together a slide show at the very bottom. I put it to the song Silas did his sweet slow dance too right after Mamie died.

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.
