My 7 Links

Peanut didn’t want to cooperate for the 6 month pictures this morning,


6 months 071


So we decided to re-take them tomorrow morning.


Instead, I’ll entertain ya.


Gina at Running to the Kitchen tagged me in the 7 Links.  So here goes,


1. My Most Beautiful Post: Our love story: the first kiss.  I loved writing our story down (and really do need to finish it).  But this post is definitely my favorite.  I don’t know if you know this about me, but I love writing (and talking…duh).  But I don’t always end up writing a lot in my posts.  This one was all about the writing.


2. My Most Popular Post: The Hearty Chicken Enchiladas in a slow cooker.  This recipe is amazing and apparently ya’ll think so too (I have no idea where the southern accent came from).


3. My Most Controversial Post: I don’t really have a very “controversial” post per se, but I did write about a controversial topic: breastfeeding.


4. My Most Helpful Post: This one is only helpful to those of you who are dealing with some baby sleep issues - the Ferber sleep training.  It changed our lives - for the better.  We’ve had very little sleep issues with P since we decided to go through with the sleep training.  I’d recommend it to just about everyone.


5. A Post Whose Success Surprised Me: Belly update - 40 weeks.  If you search “40 week belly update” on Google, it actually comes up as the 4th result.  Crazy.  PS- I was huge.  And now I miss my belly.


6. A Post I Didn’t Think Got the Attention it Deserved: Pelmeni, a family affair.  In it, I make fun of my dad.  Love you, daddy-o.


7. The Post I am Most Proud of: The Jasmine post.  This was one of the hardest things to write about, but it was something I needed to do to process it all in my head and let it go.  I can’t really tell ya honestly that I’ve really let it go, but I can tell you that I cried for 5 days straight while writing all the Jasmine posts and then I felt like a huge weight had been lifted.


Here are the other 4 Blogs that were tagged on Gina’s 7 Links:


And now it is time to start tagging.  Hope you participate!


  1. About Levi being big, what about Peanut?? When I saw that 6 month post on twitter I thought I was reading the wrong feed! I'm all for these babies growing up, just not quite so fast! Even upset, Peanut is adorable!

  2. Thanks for another interesting post! Actually I started reading your blog for the 1st time from your 40week pregnancy photo! It was one of the cutest pictures I saw (big belly but not much else!! Gorgeous!)
    Happy 6 months Peanut :)

  3. aww I like this picture, it's ones like these that have the most memories, lol. But hope you get your results tomorrow!

  4. I've never read the Jasmine posts and honestly, I can't even click on them b/c I'm pretty sure I will cry too. I can't even imagine...

  5. Oh, Kat, I just clicked over and read the Jasmine story. Of course I am sitting here crying. I can't even imagine going through that. {{{big hugs}}}

    P.S. How adorable were you with your big belly?? Love it :)

  6. Oooh how fun! I'm going to have to go through and read all of these.

    Thanks for the tag! I will definitely try to get my act together enough to do this.
