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…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah

Peekaboo Article in NWA

Peekaboo magazine did an story on our loss with Mamie and how I came up with Mamie's Poppy Plates. I wanted to share it all with you. My good friend Meredith also has her story with Miller in the magazine so be sure to pick one up if you can. I will get her article and post it here in a couple of days. - Sarah
