I’ve gone back and forth on writing this post for the past two days. Instead of trying to remember everything that happened (or even look back to remember) I think I’ll share 13 of my favorite posts from this year (and I snuck a few more in too!) They’re not in any special order.
So, here are my favorites for 2013:
I love these photos. They are some of my favorite. Also, I can’t believe how much she’s changed in a year!
I’m thankful to say that seventeen and half months later, I’ve worked through most of the issues I was having. I’m still sad I had the c-section but I no longer think of it daily (or even weekly, YAY!)
We celebrated 4 years of marriage this year. I love my husband and am so thankful we chose each other!
We love trips to the dog park. I got some very cute photos this day.
Being a new mom is hard. Some of these were told to me before Munchkin came along and others I wish people had told me. I hope they are helpful and encouraging for others.
I enjoyed writing this post as it made me think about what kind of mom I want to be.
This was easily my favorite day on our Alaskan Cruise (though zip lining in Juneau was fun too!) Glacier Bay is gorgeous and I’d love to go back some day!
I love breastfeeding, so much more that I thought I would. This is a partial list of why. I was also super excited to reach my goal of breastfeeding for 1 year. I’m thankful that I was able to get some breastfeeding photos taken. I know I will treasure these when Munchkin’s older and nursing is a thing of the distant past:)
We’ve come so far in three years by taking it one day at a time. I don’t talk a lot about The Man’s alcoholism on my blog but it is a very real part of our lives. Writing this post was good for me and allowed me to be encouraged by where we are now.
Reading is so important and I think every child should have a library. I know it can be hard to build one when funds are limited. I wrote this to help give others ideas on how get books for their child.
My baby started walking! I love that she’s mobile. She’s so much fun. This post also has the only personal video I posted this year (maybe ever on the blog?)
My baby turned one and was the first of many (I hope) birthdays. I think she’ll enjoy cake a little more at her next birthday!
13. The House
It was hard saying goodbye to my childhood house. Writing this post helped to find some closure.
We love taking Munchkin swimming! She loves it, we love it and it’s great family time!
Happy New Year!
