New car smell

Can't beat the smell of a new car, can you? It's so fresh and clean. And I love it in my new 2007 HONDA PILOT! Okay .... I didn't buy the car because of the new car smell alone (although I can admit that the scent did sway me!). I bought it because it has three rows of seats, with the third row optional as up or down. Now I can get two car seats in the center and even still have room in the back to carry around friends. This will be so much easier when family is in town. And I think I look like a pretty cool mom driving it around.

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

So two weeks ago I made a solemn promise to pick up blogging again. And, what I have I done to fulfill that promise? NUTTIN. I do have good excuses though, as follows:

1. I have a newborn. Seriously guys ... this should be the only excuse I need. But, I feel the need to expound.

2. I've been moonlighting. Literally. Why did I let my boss talk me into doing some work while I've been on maternity leave? My office hours have been midnight - 4am.

3. Family time. Shawn's parents were in town this last week. We had a good time but I think everyone can understand when I say I'm glad to have the house back to myself again.

That about sums it up. Send me to the corner. Slap me on the hand. I'll try to do better.

Just Because

This is one of my favorites ....


I wonder what she is thinking in this picture. One will never know ... but they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Welcome Truett Joseph Tinkham

Our little man made his way into the world on June 5, 2007. We made it to the hospital at 5:45a to be induced, but actually didn't get started until just after 8a. At 9a Dr. Hays broke my water, by 10a I had an epidural (hey ... you don't get a medal, right?!). There I lay for hours and hours and hours with no progress. Finally, at 3p I felt some changes and by 4p we were about ready to go ... just needed Dr. Hays to arrive. Good thing her office isn't far because all the laughing I was doing was pushing him out (yep ... you are jealous of this birth story, aren't you?). It was amazingly easy (only three pushes) and I'd do it again in a heartbeat if each birth could be like that. Anyway ... I'm not the star of this show anymore ... baby brother is.

The stats:
  • June 5, 2007

  • 4:23p

  • 7lbs 12oz

  • 19.75"

Mallory is in love, but is a little green with jealousy. The longer Truett is around the worse it gets. Resistance is futile though and eventually she'll accept it!

Blame it on Beth

So, in one of my last entries I crossed my fingers and hoped to die that I would keep up this d**n blog. But, here I am weeks and weeks later and still no update. Until today. Until I got an email from my friend Beth telling us she started her blog ( Now I feel ever so guilty about not keeping this thing up. So, again I will cross my fingers that I make it back here sooner than later.
