Baby pics

Since I can't seem to get any pictures to load, I thought I'd share the website that has some pictures from the hospital. Go to to view the pics. She was born on Oct 23. Let me know if you can't see them.

Ellison Maegan Brinkley made her arrival on Thursday, October 23rd at 8:41 am. She was 8 lbs and 21 inches long. We finally got to come home today, which is a relief. I feel like I haven't seen the light of day in too long. She's been a very good baby! I think she looks A LOT like Bailee did at that age and she may even look more like Tim than Bailee did. What do you think? I will put some pics as soon as my computer connection will let me.

The countdown is ON...less than a week!

So one week from today, I will be finished with pregnancy! I'M SO EXCITED! Bailee spoiled me a little...I had a VERY easy pregnancy with her. No pains, no sickness AND she came 2 weeks early. Now this pregnancy hasn't been all that difficult, but my hands and feet have swollen more, I have carpel tunnel that is driving me crazy, and it's not looking like this one is going to come any earlier than planned. I can't wait until Oct 23rd at 7:15 am!!!!!!

Kissinger Wedding

Today Bailee was the flower girl in Ashley and Ryan's wedding. It was a very pretty fall wedding with perfect weather. They had a fall theme, also, so Bailee got to throw leaves on the ground instead of flowers. I was a little nervous as to whether or not she would go through with it, since she does get a little stage fright. Since I was serving as Wedding Coordinator, I thought it may be a little easier to give her directions and pump her up just before playing her part. So when the time came, we stood at the end of the aisle and I gave her the direction to go and she FROZE~But just for a minute. She threw one leaf on the ground and then instructed the audience to "look the other way" in order for her to be able to do her job. Once everyone stopped looking at her, she proceeded down the aisle and did a wonderful job. She is definitely not an attention hog. She hates for people to focus on her. She looked so beautiful, though. I didn't get any pictures of the Bride, since I was busy coordinating, but I thought I would show you my little girl. Isn't she precious?

New addition to the family...

No, not THAT new addition. She won't be here for another 2 weeks. Bailee, however, got a new addition to the family that she LOVES! Our new kitty(Miss Kitty) is suppose to be our mouse/rat catcher when she's finally larger than they are. This kitten is the toughest and dumbest. She's already lost one of her nine lives during a garage door incident. (I won't go into detail for those that are weak at heart, but Bailee cried yet the cat is OK)...Now we will all just sit patiently, and slightly miserably, until our little darling gets here on Oct 23rd!

I haven't disappeared!

I know some of you are wondering about me. I haven't posted in a really long time. I plan to get back in the blogging business soon. We finally are in our house and are 2 weeks away from little Elli being here. I've got some new pics that I will put up of our new kitty that Bailee is so proud of. They'll be up soon!
