Getting Close

33 weeks today and feeling big and ready for our sweet little Winnie to get here.  Things have been going pretty good.  I am staying super busy with Burke, Mamie's Poppy Plates and my new business with Rodan+Fields that I started back in April.  I like staying busy.  It is really keeping my mind off of the worry that all you mom's that have lost a baby know so well.

The fact that this little one is a girl has brought on a little anxiety.  She loves my right side and seems to move just like Mamie did.  I don't know how many times I have been talking to her or other people and called her Mamie.  That has been hard but I am sure that happens even if you have a child that is living and get pregnant with the same sex.

I saw Dr. Sellers last week and first off I have to say the Cornerstone Clinic is looking SO good.  They have finally decided to move out of the 80's. :)  I always spend a little more time up there than I think I should.  Barbara (Sellers nurse) and I have really bonded over the past 4 years and I always love sitting and catching up with her.  She has such a kind heart.  Dr. Sellers is the same way.  Taylor and I love how soft spoken and calm he is.  He keeps us calm :)  We think of them as family to us.

Everything looked great with Winnie.  I go back next week were they will do another ultrasound to measure and make sure all is well before they let me hop on a plane for the R+F convention in Dallas.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get to go.  He said if I am contracting at all he will want me to stay home.  I totally understand and will do what he wants me to but I sure want to be at convention.  It is going to be awesome I know!

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.
