2008 - a VERY brief review

I'm stealing this idea from Laura at Synchronization for Us, who copied it from Lisanne at Bathtub Junkie. It seemed like a quick and interesting way to review the year. What they've done... and now I'm doing... is look back at all of the blog entries for 2008. Then, post the first sentence from the first post of each month. (I added links to each post... so if you're dying to check them out... it's an easy click on the month.) Make sense?

So... A Madison Mom... Snippets of 2008

January - "Sorry it's so dark... we were sitting in the light of the Christmas tree... but I think you get the idea." I posted a video of 2 1/2 year old Zoe attempting to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

February - "I'm at about the 16 week mark with this pregnancy." Obviously the 16 week update post about my pregnancy. On reading it myself the strangest thing is knowing we didn't know we were having a girl and seeing that I wrote "it" when I talked about Ana.

March - "We made it back from our cruise yesterday (actually.... we made it back to our house after 9pm last night)." A post detailing everything I was going to miss about being on our cruise. Now I miss it again. I wonder when we can book another cruise.

April - A "Wordless Wednesday" called "Searching for Puddles". I posted Zoe in her new rain gear.

May - "We went upstairs for our normal daily snooze... but Zoe asked to sleep in the "butterfly room"." A post about Zoe's very first time sleeping in her big girl bed in her big girl room.

June - "First... and most importantly... you must always practice proper bicycle safety." A post about riding bikes in Florida with Uncle Jim and Avery.

July - "Like every other update post... we're moving right along." Another pregancy update. This one was week 37.

August - "Once upon a time... a long time ago (OK, fine it was just June 20th... it sure seems like a LONG time ago) in a place far far away (um, yeah, Chester, NJ... I guess it is only about 15 or 20 minutes from here) in a world totally unlike the one where we live now (you just try and tell me that the addition of a newborn doesn't completely change your world)...we went strawberry picking." Hee Hee Hee. A post about our trip to go pick strawberries. Obviously it took me so long to post because between the strawberries and the post Ana was born.

September - "I photographed some flowers in the last week." Um... and then I posted the photos.

October - "Me - Zoe, it's time for your snooze." A funny little post relaying a conversation had with Zoe.

November - "Halloween was a success! Yummy, yummy, yummy! " A very quick Halloween post. It's a SOOC Saturday.

December - "I was tagged by Jeanette at Jenty's Ramblings for the Real Mom Meme." Yep, you guessed it... I posted the "real mom meme".

So there you have it. 2008 reviewed quicker than I ever thought possible. If you have been with me all year long... then maybe I've brought back a couple good reads and photos you remember (October might be my favorite of the list). If you're new here... then you've got a few posts to help you catch up on how things have been here in Madison, NJ.

I hope your 2009 is off to a fabulous start!
