Looking Back on My Favorite Posts

My favorites!

It has been such a fun year here on Baby’s First Year and I decided to take a stroll down memory lane.

I hand picked posts from the last year to share with you guys. It is hard to believe I only have two more weeks with you before Addison moves onto Toddler Times. I refuse to accept her as a toddler at all. She is SO not a toddler!

Maybe I am just in denial?

From breastfeeding to co-sleeping, baby products and letting the world see my belly only a couple days after having major surgery to deliver my daughter. It has been a fun road. I can honestly say everyone who I have met here along the way has been a treat to know!

I hope you all travel along with me to Toddler Times!

I really hope you enjoy these posts!  If I missed one that you loved, please leave a comment!
