I am halfway there--Brinkley!

Happy 6 Months Brinks!

Brinkley was scheduled for her 6 Month Check up on the 23rd of March but because of a continuous cough and wheezing we went in this past Wednesday! She weighed 17.4 lbs(80%) and was 27 inches(90%) long! Dr. Ryan said she was progressing well and loved how busy she is! We talked a lot about the next few months being quiet the transition stage to sitting up, crawling and eating foods with more consistency! Her thoughts were that she'll move more and talk less haha! She said most go-getters are like that! Oh boy I am going to have my hands full! I know I probably repeat myself but when you have kids your time just flies. I mean 6 Months has already passed and I feel like I was in the hospital just yesterday! She brings such joy to both Ike and I and we are so blessed!
6 Month Shots
On another note her wheezing in her chest didn't sound great so she gave us an at home nebulizer to put medication into her lungs and clear things up. The first two days didn't go to well. She was terrified of the machine and the misting. Plus 10 minutes without her hands or feet in her mouth is unheard of right now. I started experimenting to help fix her fear by turning it on and then walking her into the room, as well as, turning on Barney during it! It's really helped and she has done really well ever since. She's starting to get used to it but it's still pitiful for me to watch. Hopefully within a week she's all better!
First Nebulizer Treatment :(
Getting used to it!! :)

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Yesterday we spent the afternoon with all of our friends at a local Irish place in College Park celebrating St. Patrick's Day! We are so lucky to have so many friends all in the same neighborhood and with so many little ones or little ones on the way! It was a gorgeous day!!

Excited to go hangout with Hadley and Coleson!

Tavistock was the past two days so we had a sleepover at Ike's parents house! Brinkley and Coleson had a lot of time to play and really started acknowledging each other! They are going to love looking back at these pictures we take of them together! As you can see below they are even learning to share lol!
We had quiet the photo shoot the past two days! Bathing suits on her just make me melt! She's too adorable and loves the water!

Brinkley went to nursery for the first time Sunday! She is in the BEAR room and won't become a CHICK until she's about a year old! They said she did great except she won't sleep when other things are going on...so she'll pretty much never sleep in the nursery lol!

Brinkley's Dedication

Brinkley was dedicated on Sunday at the First Babtist Church of Windermere! Ike has grown up in this church family and we couldn't be more excited to have her grow up here as well! It was a great little service and due to her cooperation we checked out the nursery during the sermon! Next week will be her first time going to nursery so that we both and the family will be able to enjoy an entire service!

Our Family!
I love dressing her up!

As a last minute surprise Ike and I went to the Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley concert with our friends! It was a great chance for us to reminisce on our first Brad Paisley concert in college when we had just began dating! Fun Mommy and Daddy night out!

So many places to go...

Last weekend we were very busy from one event to the next! Brinkley and I attended my friend Helen's baby shower! We are eager to find out if BABY MARTINEZ is going to be a potential BFF or a date for the prom lol! It was amazing and such a good start to the day with all the girls! Then we picked up Ike and headed to Catharine and Chase's Engagement Party! It was great getting to meet some of their friends and family! Last we changed yet again and headed off to Uncle Kyle's playoff game which he won!

Then Sunday was church and a full day in the Florida sun with the family! Coleson and Brinkley had so much fun in the pool and in their tent! Bathing suits on little ones are the cutest thing ever!
