A Look Back Through 2009: Mama Notes Best Post

This blog began in late December 2008, right after I graduated college. It’s been a great place for me to share with you my thoughts and findings on subjects relating to parenting and children, as well as keep records of my son and all his milestones. (As I was looking back through all my old post, I saw the video of him crawling and I just about lost it!) I stared the Body After Baby Challenge and together we worked to get our body’s back! And we’re still working on them, and  will continue to do so in the new year!

I’ve met so many wonderful moms as well, and believe it or not, you have helped me more than you know! The community that has grown here is amazing, and your tips, advice and suggestions have been so valuable to myself and other moms (and dads!) reading.

I love my little place on the web. Even if I’m only able to help one person or brighten one moms day by my words or pictures, I think I’ve done my job. I’m thankful I’ve have the oppurunity to share what I know (and what I don’t!) about raising our kids and living life fully.

Here is a breakdown, month by month, of some of my favorite and/or most popular blog post I’ve wrote over the year. I would love to get feedback from you as well so I can prepare for 2010. What are your favorite things about this blog? What topics or types of post would you like to see more of, and what could you do without?

Input from you is very much appreciated, and I will definately take it into account as I plan for post/topics/giveaways/activites/etc for 2010. I’m so glad to have you here!
