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…

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
