Welcome to Erin Putnam's blog!

My husband, Todd, and I have been married for 5 years. We have a 2 perfect children named Presley and Nate...and Lucy the chihuahua is still around, as well. We live in Memphis on Mud Island and really enjoy it! We have a great group of friends and you'll almost always find us together cooking out in someone's yard or at Movie and a Pizza...leaving the island is a rarity! I hope you enjoy my blog, as I try to keep everyone updated on our lives.

About Me

I like the pool, the beach, and any water - warm weather combo. I like shopping for Presley and Nate...way more fun than shopping for myself. I like cooking when I don't have to, running when the weather is perfect, the day the maid comes and my house is clean (even if for a little while), grocery shopping, minivans, pregnant women (just not me), a bubble bath and a sudoku puzzle, baby pictures of my husband, my hair the day after it was washed, reality TV, Oprah, when Todd takes the trash out without me asking, half-baked ice cream (I could seriously eat the stuff every day!), watching my babies sleep, talking about memories of my mom and grandmom, someone else choosing the restaurant, when the car beside me has spinners, strawberries and melted milk chocolate, and funny songs on your ring tone. I don't like feeling I need to exercise, folding itsy bitsy clothes, computer problems, hot leather seats, bugs, sun glasses that are too tight on your head, alarms, annoying girl drama, paying for daycare when it's closed, long fingernails, hugging people I barely know, people who use the word 'love' too liberally, and tacky children's clothes. All and all, I think I'm pretty normal.

Again, I know...

Ok, I realize I've done 3 posts in the last few minutes...I don't fully know what I'm doing.  I thought I'd actually write some stuff this time.

Our sweet Presley is just a month away from being 1 year old!  I can't believe it.  She is so fun!  She just got her 5th tooth this week.  She is eating so many new foods.  Daycare fed her a breaded chicken patty and beans the other day!  I was shocked, but now that she finally has some teeth, she can eat most foods.  She is very "healthy"...I'm guessing somewhere between 22-23 lbs.  I thought she would be walking by now, since she has done most physical stuff early, but she is just not interested.  She scales the walls and furniture and sometimes stands on her own, but no real steps, yet.  She is definitely Todd's child...what I mean is FEARLESS!  Why would you sit and slowly rock on your horsy when you can stand up on the seat and rock so hard it almost tips over?  Philene would have a fit...she will probably run out and buy her a helmet as soon as she reads this!  Ha!  She pushes any object she can up to the couch so she can use it as a stepping stool to get up there.  After taking a few tumbles, she has learned how to stay on the couch/bed.  She also sleeps just like her dad.  No problem what so ever...put her in bed, throw on her blanket Mary Jane made, and she immediately rolls over and goes to sleep.  Really, though, she is such a good child and Todd and I were definitely blessed!

You left the most important thing out of your blog....Presley's Awsome Uncle Bert. I would bet that most people reading this would love to know about your Great Brother and Presley's Uncle Bert. I will be looking for this on the next update.

Before starting back to work see if you have a day or so to come stay with us.
