Mamie's 2nd Birthday

This past Saturday was Mamie's 2nd birthday in Heaven. I can't believe it has already been 2 years. Where has the time gone. I remember that day like it was yesterday and I think I will for the rest of my life. The days leading up were the worst as usual. I do feel very blessed that God decided to bring Burke to us just in time for her birthday. Being able to look at his sweet face calmed my nerves and warmed my heart. He is part of her and that makes thing a little sweeter. Taylor and I met my family and Amanda (who is practically family) down at the cemetery. It was a beautiful day and the wind was blowing her chime. The sound was so beautiful. As soon as Silas got there he had to show Taylor and I the card he made for Mamie to send up to her in Heaven. He amazes me at how connected he is to her. We released balloons and then headed to the house for cake and coffee. It was a lovely morning and am so thankful that we have so many loving friends and family. I have a awesome post coming up that my sister set up. People all over the world sent Taylor and I signs saying Mamie on them. They began coming in first thing Saturday morning and kept coming till Sunday morning. It was awesome!

Mamie, we love you so so SO very much and miss you like crazy. We hope you had a wonderful birthday in Heaven. Love you baby.

I was so glad that Amanda wanted to come and celebrate with us. She is such an amazing person and friend.

A friend of Jason's at work painted this footprint picture with Mamie's name written in it. I LOVE it!

Silas wrote Mamie a note that he tied to his balloon to send up to her in Heaven. He is such a sweet little boy.

Thank you Judy Adams for the beautiful birthday cake for Mamie. It was SO yummy!

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.
