When I went to the doctor for my 6 week postpartum check-up, we talked about birth control options for me. As I’ve said before, and will say until I die, I hate birth control, especially progesterone only options. So I kind of hemmed and hawed about what to use. Ricky and I [...]
Since the girls have been born, I’ve been trying to pump milk everyday. I usually do this in the morning while Des plays and the girls sleep. And every morning Des sees me pump and states that Momma is making milk.

A few days ago, we went to have our NT ultrasound done. This is the ultrasound they do for the genetic testing.

My name is Mallory. I’m a socially awkward person and really stink at making small talk. It’s something I’m working on, but if we ever meet in person, I apologize in advance for all the uncomfortable silences. I love dirty jokes – the dirtier the better. So, when we meet and I’m being awkward, tell me a dirty joke and I’ll get more comfortable.
I’m married to Ricky. He’s a firefighter/paramedic. We’ve known each other since I was 12 and have been a couple since I was 16. He’s really silly and I love that about him. He makes me happy. I really like him.
We had a baby in 2009. His name is Desmond and we love him. He’s amazing and we basically think he’s one of the greatest kids in the world.
In 2011, we had identical twin girls, Scarlett and Isla. We also think they are amazing and they are the two other greatest kids in the world.
This blog is meant to be a chronicle of our life together.
