Happy 3rd Birthday Mamie!

Today was a pretty good day.  Way didn't do much but stay in the house and stay cool.   I can't believe how hot it was today.  As you all know we had the big race this past Saturday and man was that amazing.  I will be posting soon about that along with pictures.  We took Burke twice this weekend down to visit Mamie's grave.  The first time was the morning before the race.  We wanted to have some quiet family time with her.  We went again yesterday with our good friends Ashley, Dustin and their little one Alivia.  Crazy enough we went to the zoo afterwards.  Burke loved seeing all the animals but he really enjoyed running through the water with his momma :)  So back to today, Taylor came home with dinner, wine, beautiful pink flowers and hot pink balloons.  The three of us had a nice dinner and then we went outside on the deck so Burke could send his sister some balloons for her birthday.  I had told Taylor about Burke and I sitting in the hall today playing.  He was being so snuggly today.  I think he knew I was sad.  He crawled in my lap and wrapped his little arms around my neck.  I said "Burke where is Mamie?"  He pointed up at her pictures hanging in the hall with his sweet little hand.  I about lost it.  How cool was that!  Later tonight Taylor had him in his arms walking down the hall.  He said, "Burkie where is Mamie?" and Burke began pointing again at her pictures.  Taylor started yelling for me to come see that he was doing it again.  Pretty cool!  Anyway I have so pictures to share with you guys from the cemetery, zoo and our family balloon release tonight.  

Happy Birthday Mamie!  We love you so so soooooo much sweet girl.

I love this picture of her.  She is so beautiful!


  1. Happy Birthday sweet Mamie! I can't believe it's been 3 years! You've been a busy momma these last 3 years building Mamie's legacy, and what a WONDERFUL job you have done! I'm so thankful to call you my friend! Love ya!

  2. Hi there, I stumbled upon your blog from another BLM blog. I am so sorry for your loss. My little girl, Lily, was stillborn at fullterm on March 16, 2010. Her middle name is Katherine too! :) And as Anne of Green Gables says, "A Katherine with a "K" is so much more alluring than a Catherine with a "C." A C always looks so smug." ;) Happy 3rd Heavenly Birthday to your sweet girl. She is so beautiful. I love her headstone! I still haven't picked out one for my Lily (haven't been able to afford it sadly.) I think it's so thoughtful and amazing that you will be buried with her. My grandmother lost a baby named Rachel at 3 months old back in 1965 and she got a headstone bench for Rachel, herself and her husband. I want to be buried right next to my girl too. Much love and hugs, Hannah Rose (

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.
