Burke is 8mths

So I have totally been slacking again on the blog post.  Things have been great around here.  Burke is on the move these days and man is he fast.  He hasn't figured out how to crawl on his knees yet but he has mastered the army crawl.  A few weeks back we  both got pretty sick.  After a long wait at the doctors office we found out he had strep.  Not fun at all.  I felt so bad for the little guy.  While dealing with that he was also cutting 2 more top teeth.  Yes that's right.  Burke has 6 teeth now and he loves to chew on everything he can get his hands on.  Burkie has been such a quiet little guy until just a few weeks ago.  His personality has really come out.  He's such a ham these days.  He loves to dance, clap his hands, show us his tongue, wave bye bye and sing into his favorite microphone oh and I can't forget he loves loves loves to play with any kind of ball.  Everyday he seems to do something new and I thank God for this wonderful gift He has given us.

To walk in the room and see that little face light up when he see's you.  Ah there are just no words to describe it.  :)  When I look at him and he crunches up his nose and smiles really big it just melts my heart.  When we say "I'm gonna get you" and he squeals and starts crawling away from us as fast as he can.  It's so fun.  Motherhood is a wonderful thing!

Every night before bed Burke and I say our prayers.  I began saying the prayer when Burke was born that Britney says with Silas.  This past month when I walk him into his room and I began to say "Know I lay me down to sleep..." he turns his head and puts his face into my chest like he is praying with me.  Pretty cool!  We always tell Mamie that we love her so so much and miss her more than anything.  Man how I wish she was here.  She would be such a good big sister.  We talk to Burke about Mamie all the time and I know even though she is not here he will know his big sis.

Life is good and we have been blessed.

Burke and Gus are really getting use to each other.  Gus love that Burke is eating finger foods now.  He comes running to the kitchen table as soon an I sit Burke in his seat.  I am sure the Goose is going to gain a ton of weight.

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.
