Top Posts of 2013

We are fast approaching 2014 and with that I thought it would be a nice idea to have a delve into the archives and re-read some of my most popular posts of 2013.

I love to look back over my posts; afterall that it the purpose of A Whole Nine Months and why it began. It's lovely to see how my baby had grown and reminisce on those days that seemed mundane at the time but somehow made it into the blog and now makes me smile.

2013 was my 2nd year in the blogging world and I'm immensely proud of how my '2nd baby' has come on. I thoroughly enjoy blogging, especially the community that it brings. We now have a presence on Twitter and although it's not the most important thing, it's nice to know that I have regular readers who enjoy my posts. 

I kicked off the year with a ranty post (a ranty post on A Whole Nine Months, NEVER! *insert sarcastic tone*) about a topic I'm very passionate about - Manners cost Nothing! Take a look at the post to see why I was stark raving mad at my journey from Leeds with a new baby in tow!

Continuing the theme of ranty posts, I then penned a letter to Mr Saintsbury regarding the atrocious situation that it parent & Child parking. Dear Mr Sainsbury was and still is one of my most popular posts although it's apparent that he hasn't read it himself because I've seen no improvement!

As a first time mummy, I have been thrown on a whirlwind adventure and at times, have struggled to know my rear end from my elbow! I blogged a list of 15 things no one told me about becoming a Mummy! and judging by the reaction I had on Twitter, I'm not alone. We're all in the same boat and that brings me comfort. The fact that we all mourn our pre-pregnancy boobies makes me feel that little bit more positive about my spaniel's ears. The shocks kept coming when I told you of the 15 things no one told me about being a toddler mummy!

I've told you about the Sad World in which we live and I shared my Letter to a Teenage Freddie in which I penned lots of advice. It'll definitely be something to show him when he's older. Do as I say and not as I do and all that!

April brought good news when I announced my enagement to Mr C. Regular readers will know that having a different surname to my baby bothered me so I was thrilled to post Hey Baby, I think I wanna Marry you! and have my readers share in my joy.

A massive part of 2013 for me personally was My Slimming World Journey and I'm now pleased to say I've lost 3stones. I hope that I will have more good news on my new healthy lifestyle in 2014!

2013 has been a wonderful year. We have had lots of 'firsts' which you can see here in 2013: A Year in Photographs. Of course our engagement was wonderful news and 2014 is surely going to be our best year yet.

Freddie is growing every day and he continues to amaze us with all he can do.

We have a wedding to first of all, plan and then enjoy and a luxury 5 ⭐family holiday to take. Hopefully Mr C's business will continue to go from strength to strength and we'll be able to enjoy a lovely way of life in 2014 as we have this year.

We continue to remember people who weren't able to spend 2013 with us and they will be carried in our thoughts, never to be forgotten. 

I hope that 2014 is a good year in terms of my blog. I thoroughly enjoying putting my thoughts down onto screen. It's therapeutic and sometimes, one of the only things to keep me sane. I want to continue to make and maintain wonderful friendships with fellow bloggers and I think 2014 may be the time for me to build some more relationships with some more brands.

As always, I'm thankful for our good health and our happy home. 

I hope you'll continue to read my little piece of cyber-space. To all, a Happy New Year and I sincerely hope that 2014 is wonderful for us all.
