Blog Hoppin'


It's funny - I have been looking for new moms to follow on Twitter recently and have
even been looking for some new blogs to follow, and then I stumbled upon the "Blog Party" tonight while reading one blog I like to check out. Apparently it's an online event that is taking place this week, where you can link up to other blogs and "meet" other bloggers.

So, on that note, let me give you a little background about me (in case anyone except the handful of friends/family who read this are curious)!

My name is Erin. I live in Smyrna, GA and decided to start this blog right after I got pregnant. After struggling to come up with a name, I decided on "Smyrna Baby" - it seemed appropriate since "Smyrnagal" is my user name on a couple different sites I frequent.

We have a 6-month-old baby girl who is just perfect in every possible way. She's so cuddly, sweet as could be and has the funniest personality.

I was one of those crazy pregnant people who didn't find out what we were having. If I had been a betting woman, I would've put down a lot of money on boy odds. A lot. When the doctor announced "It's a girl!" I think I actually questioned her because I was that sure.

So far, I love being a Mom, but honestly could not be a SAHM. For those of you that are, I don't know how you all do it, but I commend you. I feel guilty for wanting to go to work, but that's just my personality. Don't fault me.

I love blogging, I love emailing, I love social networking, I love the Internet. I'm addicted to Twitter and Facebook, and honestly sometimes think I should go to rehab for this addiction.

I could go on-and-on, but that's enough for now. Please leave comments and leave a link to your blog. Like I said, I am looking for more to follow (because, you know, I have all this free time on my hands)...


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

    Congrats on your baby girl! Mine is 7 months. They're handfulls, that's for sure!

    I don't think you're crazy at all for waiting to find out the gender. I wish I could have! I'm way to impatient and way to ocd to not plan according to gender. Maybe with the next one. Doubtful, but maybe. :)

    Being a sahm isn't for everyone. Don't worry or feel guilty its not for you!

    I'm obsessed with the internet too and have often wondered about internet anonymous for people like us.... Would that defeat the purpose is it was an online meeting??

    I look forward to reading more of your blog!!

  2. Thanks Christine! As crazy as it sounds, not knowing what we were having was the best surprise ever. It's hard as anything, but the biggest/best surprise I have ever had! :)

  3. Another Christine here. I had to stop by when I saw the title of your blog while looking around on the D-list. We live in Roswell! And our daughter was born just a couple of weeks after yours. She turns 6 months next week on the 26th. Did you have your beauty at Northside, I did and loved it - such a great hospital. Off to spend more time reading your blog.
