My little PIG..or DOG!!!

Brinkley LOVES food!  We can't eat dinner without her be-lining to the table for whats on our plate!  She eats ANYTHING!  She will crawl up our leg and literally beg!  If we feed her something, she immediately takes it out of her mouth, examines it and then puts in back in!  It's hilarious!  Below is a small clip of Ashe-leigh feeding her oatmeal with bananas and blueberries!  Disregard my mother laughing like a hyena in the background haha!

I wanted to add this other video of her laughing at her cousins at the beach!!  Too cute!!

Battle of the PACI...

The BATTLE OF THE PACI!!!!  Well since the beginning Brinkley has taken a pacifier, which was great!  It really soothed her in times of need and helped push us from one feeding to next.  If she ever woke at night I would stick the pacifier back in her mouth and out she went.  It was perfect!

But now we are reaching the 1 year mark in just a few months and I have told myself we would let go of it soon before or soon after that date!  I don't want her relying on it or it hanging out her mouth when she is 3 years old.  I know some parents allow it but I think the longer I wait the harder it will be to break.

So HOW???  Well I try not to let her have it in public and only use it for nap and bedtime.  But I have already seen the convience of it!  If we are out and about and she starts getting fussy, it works like a charm!  HELP!!!!!  This is why we are called parents!  All I want to do is grab it out of my pocket and stick it in her mouth....but I have to be strong and patient and let her cry it out!  So over the next few months say a prayer for me.  That I can be strong enough not to tamper with my temptation but to face this head on!!!

Happy 4th of July!
We spent the day at Ike's parents house with lots of friends and family!  We had great weather, food and fireworks!  This was Brinkley's first time experiencing those and she wasn't very fond of it!  She screamed so loud after about the third one went off!  So we took her to bed and we enjoyed the rest of our sky lit night!
