Life with a 16 Month Old!

It's been several months since I have updated about Brinkley and so much has changed.  Her means of communication with Ike and I has really blossomed over the past few weeks.  She's either speaking what she wants or can at least point to it.  You can tell her its time to eat and she walks over, sits in her high-chair (which is on the ground) and says, "BITE"!  It is so precious! Brinkley is still loving bath time and playing outside.  She has also learned the beginning of the Barney I love you song and I can't get enough.  Her mouthful of teeth are so funny when she smiles and her fine STRAIGHT hair finally will blow in the wind.  She's growing up so fast that I would love to freeze our time right now.

As for Ike and I we are great!  He's been really busy with work but still loving his job.  I had a little sinus surgery so my mother came down to help out for a two weeks.  She did our laundry, made lunches and got up with Brinkley every really spoiled us!!!  I am all recovered.  I just had some nasal polyps and extra tissue removed to help with my allergies.  Lets pray it works.  Other than that our busy traveling time won't start until the end of February so we are enjoying our time at home and together!

A Southern Charm

Over the past six months my sister-n-law and myself have started a business!  We started giving furniture a new makeover.  So we launched about two weeks ago and we are already busy with new projects.  Take a look at our blog, like us on Facebook and give us a call if there are pieces in your home that need some TLC!

Time with Nanny!

Ike's grandmother spent a few weeks in Orlando after Christmas and we enjoyed all of our quality time with her!  She lives in South Bend and visits from time to time!  His cousin is getting married in June so we are looking forward to seeing her then!  Sweet Nans!  

Christmas photo recap!

I have NEGLECTED my blog over the past two months and will do a photo recap to get up to date!  We were in North Carolina for Christmas this year but were able to celebrate in Orlando with family prior to us leaving!  We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Brinkley was spoiled really good and loved opening gifts!
