Happy Blogiversary!

My little corner of the interwebs turns one today! A very happy un-birthday blogiversary to me! 
What should I wish for?
This little blog started out when I was 17 weeks pregnant and I was needing a place to rant and rave a creative outlet that didn't involve spending money.

I had no idea how addictive blogging would be or how freakin awesome and supportive the blogging community is. I wish I'd found the forums sooner than I did - I was a late bloomer and only got in to the swing of things in August - but I claim the insanity defense, I had baby brain.

Enough of the schmaltz - SO MUCH has happened in a year, let's go on a quick trip down memory lane (I prefer to skip, but you can walk or jog or tip toe, it's totally up to you):

It all began when I was up the duff and never got that elusive pregnancy Glow

Whilst I wouldn't wish it away, there were parts of pregnancy that just weren't fun - like having to have my ass taped

The highlight of the year would have to be the birth of my little Tricky!

I battled my way through the joys of Golden Nipples 

My world came crashing down when we learned that Tricky had Craniosynostosis and at just 14 weeks old had surgery

But things started looking up, enough for me to get my boobs out in public and go back to work, though luckily not at the same time

Which brings us to now. One year, 127 posts, and a whole lotta verbal diarrhea. Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting and here's hoping you stick around to listen to me waffle on a bit longer.

Cheers,

  8. I had hoped someone would read about my ass-taping experience. It was back from before I promoted the blog so only a handful of friends & family read it.
