Evening Ritual

He have had Burke on a great routine before bed for a long time now and I decide why not start trying to start that with Winnie now.  We are going on night 3 of them both going to bed at 7pm.  Burke loves to snuggle and read books before bed with one of us.  Boo usually gets a bath before dinner and I am now trying to bathe Winnie right around 7 while Taylor reads books and gets Burke down.  Then I spend a little time with Winnie while she kicks and coos on the bed while I get her lotioned up and in her jamies.  In just 3 nights I feel like it is really working.  We get her all snuggled up in her sleep sac and she is ready for her passy and her swing.  This has been really nice because it is giving Taylor and I some time to visit and get anything done around the house we need to do.  The other night I was super pumped because Winnie didn't wake up to eat till 2am.  That was a long stretch for her little 9lb self.  :)  The second night she woke up at midnight wanting to eat and again at 2.  Wasn't the best night for rest for me but that was okay.  Last night we woke her up at 10 and fed her right before we went to bed and she then let me sleep from 10:30-2:30.  Anyway, I wish I had of journaled more about Burkes sleeping and eating patterns so I could look back and remember.  Its amazing how quickly you forget about all the sleep you miss out on :)

Anyway we shall see how tonight goes.

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
