The Muffin Man is going to turn one in just under two weeks. Can you believe it?! This first year with him has gone by so incredibly fast. I know it's totally cliché to say that, and it makes me sound like such a Mom, but it really is the truth. It seems like just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital and Chris and I looked at each other like, "now what?!" Somehow we muddled through, and I actually think we're managing pretty well. Sure, I have some days that make me want to throw myself in front of a moving car, but for the most part we're surviving and thriving. Of course, we're just about to enter the whole new world of a child who walks, so there are sure to be plenty of lumps, bumps and Motherhood FAILS ahead of us in 2014, but let's just enjoy this rare moment of calm while it lasts.
I'm signing off from the blog for a couple of weeks in order to spend time with family and celebrate Noah's first birthday. You'll still be able to get your adorable Noah fix if you follow me on Instagram. I'll be back on January 6th with stories of holiday catastrophes and hopefully some great photos of the little man's first birthday bash. In the meantime, I've rounded up a few of my favorite posts from this year in case you feel like taking a trip down memory lane.
