My Innargural Post

I've been meaning to do this for a while, or like 6 months, or however you want to define a while.

A little about us, John and I have been married for 4 years, we have a baby, Brooks, 7 months; 3 dogs, Geraldine, Nannette and Pappagano; and a cat, Pixel. We have a zoo, we had a zoo before we had a baby. John is a set designer and professor at a local college. I was laid off a week into my maternity leave and have been looking for a career change since. In the meantime I am watching our neighbor's daughter, Miss K, who will be 4 months next week.

We have cloth diapered Brooks since day 1, in the hospital. He's also breast fed, was exclusively until a few weeks ago when he dive bombed John's dinner plate and we decided to introduce solids. While in my charge Miss K is also cloth diapered, which is actually easier for me.

Days for me are really hectic, trying to get them both to sleep, as well feed them, change them and use the bathroom myself. Normally this leads to hilarity, sometimes multiple levels of hilarity. So, come and explore with me, I'll post pictures as often as possible.

Here's a preview, a little original fluffy butt picture circa July 14, 2010.


  1. Mary Tyler, I love it and I will definitely follow you once I get onto my own computer. My oldest, Maisey was born July 14, 2005. If birthrates are any significance then you will have a natural performer on your hands. Love you - Shannon (king)

  2. That would be birthdays not birthrates :)

  3. His birthday is actually the 12th, I didn't get any pictures until the second day. But you're right it's a good time.
