Happy 400th Post!

Holy guacamole!! Can you believe that this post is my 400th post?? 400!

I know we’re approaching my 2 year anniversary (in September), and while that seems like an achievable feat, somehow 400 posts doesn’t. I feel like there is just no way that I’ve shared 399 different blog posts with you, my readers. I mean obviously I did, wordpress doesn’t lie 😉 but it’s just such a crazy thought.

I thought it would be fun, in honor of my 400th post, if we went on a little time travel journey, back in time. I want to highlight my best posts from the last 100 and maybe a few others. Are you ready to buckle-up and join in on the journey (I feel like I need to play the Back to the Future music here. haha)!?

Top Baby Doodah! posts from the past 100

1. We moved! Do you remember that?? I do. The move was pretty smooth, but we were sad to find out that the neighbors below us were rude and selfish. We’ve since adjusted, but we rarely spend time in our living room because of their noise. It kind of stinks, but there’s not a thing we can do about it, so we’ve grown to accept it and our lives are so much better off.

2. Are you interested in reading all about 33 little known facts about me?? Well here yah go!! 🙂

3. Since the beginning of the year I’ve shared many different posts about Binge Eating Disorder, my coping, what it looks like to an outsider, I even wrote an open letter to a woman struggling with binge eating disorder. Each and every one of them has been tremendously important to me in my journey to healing.

4. I’ve shared a couple of awesome recipes, our delicious guacamole and our ooey gooey meatloaf. Mmmmmm


5. One of my biggest posts to date, in terms of traffic, was the one I wrote about being frustrated with blogging. I got a lot of advice, encouragement and commiseration. Sometimes it’s good to know you’re not alone in your struggles.

6. Eating right and exercising can be a difficult thing to stay motivated to do. My post about rewards and how they can help you stay focused, was a pretty big hit!


7. It’s easy to have a killer Monday when you have this list!!

8. It is no secret that I love my little boy beyond all measures, so I wrote a little blog post about the 10 reasons why having a boy rocks. I know girls are just as awesome in their own right, but I have a boy – so I wrote about a boy!

Reasons-Boys-Rock-Baby-Doodah9. I rode 33 miles in support of Cancer Research for the Ride for Roswell. No simple feat, I assure you! But, I am proud that I accomplished something so great for a cause so good.

10. I don’t use my phone or iPad to keep Emmett entertained much, but when I do, I’ve come up with a fool-proof list of toddler apps that keep him happy and focused, while I get things done around the house.

11. And finally… Emmett turned 2!!! It’s because of this boy that I have this blog and I’m so thankful for him, he lights up every single day of my life.

200th Post – A Celebration of 200 Posts!

Readers! Can you believe it? This is my 200th post!

When I started this blog over a year ago, I had no idea how long I would stick with it or how many topics I’d have to write about. I’d started 2 or 3 blogs before this one and they didn’t go anywhere. I’d post frequently for a good couple of months but I would lose steam, or rather things to write about. I’d become uninspired and wonder if anyone found what I was writing to be of any interest. Then I had a baby, and realized there was so much that I wanted to document from his life for myself and for others. I knew I wasn’t the first mom to go through any of these things but I was hoping to share some experiences that aren’t normally shared widely by other moms.

I’ve spent a lot of time on this blog and I’ve loved every minute of it. There have been times when I run low on ideas or just don’t feel like sitting down to type, but after taking a few days off, I always come back ready to write and full of ideas. It feels so good to have an outlet for all things mom and life related, and I’m so thrilled to have an audience to share it all with.

One of my favorite moments of our first day together.

I thought for my 200th post I’d share some of my favorite posts since I began and some of my favorite photos.


Obviously, one of my favorite posts was the very first one, how the name Baby Doodah came to be.

Every month since Emmett’s been 4 months old, I write a letter to him, titled Dear Emmett. In them, I describe what we’ve done and how he’s grown. I plan on continuing this until he’s at least 2, and then switching to quarterly or so.


I definitely don’t know everything, but I love to share what I’ve learned as a new mom so that maybe I can help others through feelings they may be struggling with.


I had a blast doing The Color Run, this past Summer.


Emmett’s first birthday was a ton of fun! And of course, I loved recounting my memories from Emmett’s actual day of birth.
