5 Years!!!!!!

As I sit here tonight thinking back on the what was happening this very moment 5 years ago I get a sick feeling in my stomach and a huge lump in my throat.  I was in labor with our precious Mamie.  Knowing that she would be coming out and we would never hear her cry.  She would be born a sleeping angel.  Wow...... the emotions and memories flood through me like it happened just yesterday.  I sit and think about what she would be doing today.  Turning 5 is a big milestone.  She would be getting ready to start Kindergarten in the Fall.  She would be in the same grade as her cousins Cooper, Hayden and Brayden.  She would be going to Baker Elementary and be just a grade behind her cousin Silas.  I know they would all be such great friends.  Over these past years I have learned so much from her.  How to love better, how to lean on my Faith, how to take every moment as it comes and cherish all of them, to give back and help others, and to remember what is really important in life.

Mamie you are so loved!  We miss you so very much.  I know tomorrow will be an amazing day in Heaven as you celebrate your birthday.  We will be celebrating all you have done for us.  Even though you are not here we feel your presence every moment of the day.  You have changed us forever and I CANNOT WAIT to see you again.  What a day that will be!

Happy Birthday my precious love!

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.
