Easter 2012

Every holiday is a little bittersweet for Taylor and I.  Not having Mamie here to do all the things a little 2 1/2 year old should be doing makes us sad but we are also so blessed and thankful to have Burke.  He has brought us so much joy and that brings that sweet back into our lives.  Since Mamie passed away we have done a low key Easter lunch at our house and let whatever kiddo's are here play in her garden.  It makes us feel like she is involved on such a sweet and glorious day.  This weekend we were super excited to take Burke down to see the Easter Bunny.  Our church has a huge egg hunt at Allsop Park every year.  There were kids everywhere and we got to visit with lots of good friends.  Burke wasn't too sure about the Easter Bunny but he didn't cry.  :)  YEA Burke!

Sunday morning we met up with the Spees family for the sunrise service down by the river.  It was a lovely service and the music was beautiful.  When we got home we let Burke have his "Easter basket" :)  He was really into the plastic eggs.  He kept biting half of the egg and holding it in his mouth.  It covered his nose like a beak.  He crawled all over the place like that.  Sunday afternoon the family came over for lunch.  It was a wonderful relaxing day, minus the moment when Burke got his finger shut in the door.  It stressed Taylor and I out so bad.  He was so upset and we couldn't get him to calm down.  Poor little guy.  We thought at first his finger was broken.  After some quiet time and some mommy love he was all better.  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter full of love and family.

Burke's Easter Basket :) 

His Aunt Patty sent him this singing chicken.  She sings "Whoop There It Is" and lays eggs.  Thanks Aunt Patty for such a fun Easter surprise.

I do better at taking other kids pictures :)  

Burke loves this singing microphone so much.  Last night he sat in the kitchen door forever playing and singing into it.  Sweet boy!

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…

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 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.
