Beginning my third trimester!

As I have pulled into my third trimester Brinkley is really growing. At almost 30 weeks I have gained 19lbs and can tell that my days of great sleep are almost over! I have began to toss and turn all night, maneuver back and forth while sitting and officially retired my 4 inch heels haha! While so blessed that she is in constant motion her kicks have began to make me think she has a chance at being the first girl punter for the Gamecocks! The kicks go from "Awww isn't that cute" to "She literally going to burst out of my stomach"!

We recently spent a weekend in North Myrtle Beach with my family! Although Ike couldn't join us, it was quiet the family affair. From the beach music and shagging to watching the kids with my tummy, I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Gotta love Myrtle Beach Days!!!

29 Week Belly Update
Cagney loves playing with Aunt Fallon's belly!
My little angels: Corbin and Cagney
The family: poor Ike always misses out!

Brinkley Update!

Yesterday we had our 27 week update. It's crazy how time flies when your feeling great and summer is keeping you busy! Dr. C said I was measuring and weighing right on schedule. We were able to see her wiggling around on the sonogram and counted all the chambers of her heart! Being just 13 weeks away from the due date puts everything into reality fast! Our next appointment is scheduled August 4th and I will be 31 weeks!

As we begin the third trimester, the nursery is almost fully done and I will be posting pictures soon. Ike and I, along with my family have really had fun putting all of it together! With showers around the corner and baby bedding almost done...our little room is going to fill up fast! These College Park homes are built for the modern day baby accessories haha!

Fireworks and Bahama Bread

Once a month we get together with four other couples for dinner. Someone host and we make a night out of it. We started planning months ago that a weekend trip with this group over the 4th to Hopetown would be amazing, and boy was it! I have not laughed so much in my life and to top it all off, three of the five couples are expecting in the fall! So it was Brinkley, Coleson and mysterious Baby Dixon's first trip together! We couldn't be more blessed with the people we have in our life!
