So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Bye! Plus, A Little Game!

farewell baby's first year me and wolf

The wooden baby spoon was way more exciting than posing for a photo.

Well my friends, the time has come for me to say goodbye.  Upon returning to work full time, I quickly realized that I just didn’t have the time to maintain three blogs, keep up my work load AND spend time with my most favorite little person in the entire world.  Quite honestly, I’m a little heartbroken to be leaving, as I’ve enjoyed sharing our journey with you so much.  I’ve had a wonderful 6 months blogging for Babble, first at Being Pregnant then Baby’s First Year and I hope that you continue to follow my journey with Wolf via my lifestyle blog, Unruly Things or my baby blog, Unruly Little Things.

I thought it’d be fun to end my last post with a little question / answer game.  Here goes. 

What is your absolute favorite memory so far with your baby? {If you’re expecting or just in the thinking-about-having-a-baby stage, tell me your favorite baby memory, too!}

My favorite memory so far with Wolf is definitely that first time he giggled.  While we were in Idaho this summer, I could just tell he was right on the brink of laughing.  Each time he smiled with delight, I’d begin expecting it more and more.  But when he finally did laugh, it surprised the heck out of me.  I shrieked to my husband “OMG, HE LAUGHED!!!” so loudly, that I scared Wolf into hiccups, then tears.  Ha!!   Poor guy, to this day he still gets the hiccups if he laughs too hard.

Thank you so so much for reading.  Your thoughtful comments on my struggles with breastfeeding and the complex learning process of raising a new baby have meant the world to me.  So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good bye!

P.S. — To all you nasty anonymous commenters, I hope you find peace in what ever is making you so bitter.  Life is too beautiful to spend time being mean.
