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.

family reunion and a sick baby

Last weekend, we headed down to Batesville for the Putnam family reunion.  It was perfect weather, so the kids spent most of the time in their swimsuits playing water games.  Emma Grace is getting so big...I think she'll be walking in the next month or 2, and she has quite a little personality...so, I predict she is going to be trouble.  I kidded with Ashley and Clete that she was going to corrupt my sweet Presley.  No, really, I'm so glad they are so close in age...they are going to have a lot of fun together.  
Then, this past weekend, Presley had a stomach bug...which lead to a horrible case of diaper rash.  You know, the best thing for diaper rash is fresh air...yet, that is hard to do when your child has diarrhea...but, last night, we let her run free in the yard for a couple of hours and it REALLY helped.  Her little bum looks so much better today!  I know that is probably more information that most would like to hear...but, I needed to explain the pics...and, I would assume most parents totally understand.  
Enjoy the pics!

I love the pics of Presley with her rolls. John Michael is already around 20 pounds and full of them. We love our rolls. It gives us more to love on, I just can't get enough.
