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.

Some updates...

I finally got to see my doc today, and she did just what I've been hoping for...bumped me up a week!  So...thank goodness...now, I'm due 7/26 (she won't let me go past this date secondary to this ginormous thing growing in my belly).  However, this now makes me 1 week less prepared...which isn't that big of a deal, considering I've done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  We haven't named the darn fellow, haven't bought Pres new furniture so that she can move up and he can move in, haven't bought him any bedding, etc.  The only thing I have done is bought one little pair of overalls.  So, at least he'll look cute in his blue overalls and pink socks ;)  She also recommended I start prenatal yoga for my sciatica.  Uh...if any of you know me at all, I'm not quite the yoga type.  So, I'm thinking I'll just start some stretching in the mornings and evenings...or, at least that's what I say I'm going to do.  She was also quite shocked at the massive amount of weight I'm gaining compared to last time...ok, not her words exactly...but, that's what she meant when asking questions like, "you eat pretty healthy, right?"..."what was your starting weight, again?"..."maybe you should stop eating girl scout cookies for breakfast"...you get the point.  Anyway...the point of all this rambling is to express my joy of being 1 week closer to ending this misery.  Here are some pics that remind me that it's all worth it...

loving the slide
finally learning how to smile for the camera
besides playing outside, reading is by far her favorite thing to do

well, if the stretching works...let me know. it hurts so bad to get up off the floor once i get on it, that i just don't think it's worth it. my doc said for me to get a "maternity belt" to lift things up off the nerve....to which i replied, "so, you want me to wear a girdle?" yeah...haven't been to buy one yet, but i may break down and go in the next few days!
