Life is good!

I always said I would keep up with this blog but Mamie, Burke and Winnie are keeping their momma very busy these days.

Winnie is now 8mths old. I took she and Burke in for their flu shots and Winnie's check up yesterday. They were so good as usual for the doctor. Burke sat on the table and rolled his tongue around in his mouth and looked at the doctor with his shy little face.  Pibby held Winnie naked in her brothers diaper (momma forgot to bring her one) kicked and waved and grinned at the doctor. She is such a mess and I don't think will be at all shy like her brother. Winnie got a great check up. She is in the 25th percentile for length and the 5-10th for weight.  Big girl weighs 14.9 lbs. ;). These past couple of months she has changed so much. 

6 mths she got her first bottom tooth. Soon after the second one came in. 7mths she was sitting up and now at 8mths she is on the move crawling but really wants to walk. We keep telling her to slow down but she is so interested in what her big brother is doing. She gets on her hands and knees then pushes up straightening out her legs. It is so cute. She has also started waving bye bye and putting her arms up when we say So Big. 

Burke is growing like a weed too. He is loving preschool.  He is learning tons of new things everyday thanks to his awesome teachers Ms Betty and Ms Monique. He amazes Taylor and I everyday.  He is really trying to find his independence. He wants to do everything on his own without our help. He is also a big helper. He helps me with Winnie bringing me diapers etc and the newest thing is helping me unload the dishwasher. Ha I can't complain about that;). Burke loves baby Winnie. I love listening to him talk to her in a sweet baby voice and watching him snuggle her and give her kisses. Every morning when Winnie wakes up he smiles and says "hi baby Winnie" then runs over to give her a big hug and kiss. She scrunched up her nose with her big smile and shakes her arms. Ah so amazing!  

We have been spending a lot of time in Mamie's garden lately. Burke loves to play in his sisters garden. We moved one of her angel bells the other day and that was the first thing Burke had to tell Taylor when he got home from work;) 

I have really been missing Mamie a lot lately. I always miss her but this time of year I think is just extra hard with the holidays being here.  We have moved MPP to our new space and are all set up. We have lots of new amazing and talented painters and new volunteers and board members. The love and dedication for our mission that so many people have brings me to tears. We wouldn't be where we are without all these people but more importantly we wouldn't be where we are today without God.  I get chill just thinking about it.

Life is good and we are very blessed.

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.
