Trip to St. Louis

Taylor, Burke and I headed to St. Louis the other weekend to visit Taylor's brother and his family.  We had a wonderful weekend.  Burke LOVED being around his cousins Jackson and Brayden.  He never really has had a chance to spend some quiet quality time with them.  He thought he was such a big boy and wanted to do everything they did.  Jack and Bray were so good with him.  They are going to be awesome with their baby sister Emma who will arrive this October :)

On Saturday we went to the Cardinals game.  We got to take the boys in the dug out and they loved that.  Burke I think had more fun playing with the mini red baseball bat that Brayden got and eating everything he could get his hands on :)  

Sunday we headed over to the St. Louis Zoo.  Man was that a awesome place and I couldn't believe it was FREE to get in.  We saw so many cool animals and got some exercise walking all over that huge place. 

Brian and Ashleigh thank you so much for having us and for such a fun weekend.  We can't wait to see you guys again.  Oh and THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of the clothes for Burkie Boo.  That was SO nice of you guys!  That bag was so heavy we paid $50 to get it home :)

Burke LOVED his dip-n-dots ice cream!

Look at those lips :)

We went into the butterfly house and that was super cool.  There were butterflies EVERYWHERE and they were all so beautiful!

Oh the way home from the zoo we thought Burke would pass out since he didn't get much of a nap that day.  Didn't happen.  He thought he was such a big boy hanging out with his older cousins :)

This is my favorite picture of my to favorite guys :)

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.
