Finally... Miss Mallory!


While we were in computer Limbo... my Miss Mallory had a birthday!!
Eight years ago she came to join our family!

We were all prepared to have her come, when a couple of days before her due date,
we went to the hospital to do the "become familiar with us" tour. Actually, it was
Dr Linnerson reviewing things for the not first time parents, but had been awhile,
or something like that. We left the Banner Desert, pulled out onto Dobson Road to get on the
freeway. While we were waiting, a big ole boat of a car rear ended us. The poor lady felt
so bad.. her mom or grandma or someone was in the hospital, and she was stressed, and
wasn't paying attention.

Of course, with me 9 months pregnant, the firefighters wanted me to get checked out.
I said I was fine, and we went home. I sat in my glider-rocker with my feet up, when
all of a sudden - the baby was doing somersaults! Huge ones! That is not something that
should be happening that late! Needless to say, she turned head up.. not good.


We went to the hospital two days later, and Dr Linnerson was on call for the weekend, so he
tried to do a Version - which involves turning the baby. Grease up the belly, and try to turn
her like a wingnut- crazy! She did turn around to head down, but she never engaged, and the
next day, Feb 24th, I had a c-section, my first. Not very fun.. but it did bring our Mallory.




Her name was not because of anyone, but one that we liked, and because it fit the pattern that
we'd inadvertently started with the other two. It has two consonants in the middle, and is seven letters long. Weird, but it just turned out. Don't know what we'd do without her!



We kind of had a splurge out on her Birthday dinner, we as a family had finished reading the Book of Mormon, between stake conferences, a challenge by our Stake President. We also had Grandpa Michael in town, so we went to Ah-So for Tepanyaki style Japanese dinner! That was YUMMY! Here are a few pictures documenting her day - from waking up - to going to bed

Happy Birthday Mallory!

Henry turned around about 4 weeks before he was due. The doctor told me all these crazy things I could do to get him turned around. I did them while Matt was away because I knew he'd make fun of me seeing me upside down on a couch..haha! I did get him turned around though. I was scared out of my mind thinking I'd have to have a C-Section. You're my hero!
