Christmas 2011

I am a little late on a lot of these post but oh well :)  Christmas this year was great.  My family we had Christmas before Jason and Britney headed off to Wisconsin.  Burke got a prayer time board book and a baby bible board book too.  I was really hoping for those.  One thing that I loved is that my family made a donation to Mamie's Poppy Plates in Mamie's memory.  That meant a lot opening a gift to Mamie and just knowing they haven't forgotten. 

On Christmas morning Taylor and I got up and had a nice breakfast before Burkie work up.  Santa brought him a rocking frog that plays music.  He was pretty interested in it but really liked the wrapping paper much better.  I was super pumped about my gift.  I got a Ninja :)  for those of you that don't know about the Ninja go check it out.  I have found someway to use that thing pretty much everyday in the kitchen.  It is super awesome for making baby food.

We went to Hot Springs to have Christmas with Taylor's family later that day.  We had a huge dinner and then opened presents.  Burke got some books, a cute onsie and a few toys.  Just what he needed.  A few things really go a long way :)

This is the ornament Meredith and Patrick sent us for Mamie.  I love it and will always look at it and think of their sweet Miller and Mamie being in heaven together.

Every year Taylor gets me ornaments.  For those of you that don't know me.  I LOVE ornaments and I like to put the name of the person who gave it to me as well as the year  on it.  It is so fun every year to hang them and remember back at who gave them to me.  Anyway we decided this year we would do one for Burke and one for Mamie.  Aren't they adorable :)

This cross ornament is what we got at the Journey memorial service that we go to every November.  I will be blogging pics from that hopefully soon.  I thought it looked perfect hanging on Mamie's book that a friend made us.

Here is the Ninja!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On our ride to Hot Springs I thought a lot about Mamie but also all the other babies that have passed.  This Christmas was Meredith and Patrick's first Christmas without little Miller.  It hurt my heart to think about how they were feeling.  When I looked up at the sky I saw this M in the clouds.  I had to send it to Meredith.  It was perfect.  Mamie and Miller were sending me a sign and I had to share it with her.

Cooper, Hayden, Jackson and Brayden put on a show for us before we opened gifts.  They sang, danced and rocked out on their guitar.  

Burke was so tired on the way home.  When I opened the car door this is how I found him.  Is that not hilarious.

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.
