I took a look at my top posts from 2016, and the most popular post from last year was The Wonder Weeks “Grey Period” – What is it?. Several of my other posts on leaps and milestones rang in high on the rankings as well.
When I think back to my favorite resources as a first time mom, during the first year of my daughter’s life, The Wonder Weeks (book and app) is on my top 2 list (accompanied by the Babywise book). Reading other online resources, and talking with moms about their experiences during each leap was very comforting. It was validating to know that I wasn’t in this alone, and that my experiences were “normal”.
Once I considered how valuable this information had been to me, it really wasn’t a surprise that The Wonder Weeks “Grey Period” – What is it? post was at the top of the list- not to mention that the book itself does not address this infamous “grey period”!
As I was planning my blogging goals for the year, I decided to make the “Wonder Weeks” a top focus, as a result! Each month, my goal is to post a collection of real quotes from real moms on their experiences. Each month will focus on a different leap, until all 10 leaps, including the grey period are completed! These posts will include skills learned, if baby was extra fussy, information on sleep disruptions, general descriptions and quotes, and a ranking of how difficult this particular leap was.
I need your help to create this amazing compilation! Below you will find links for each of the wonder weeks. When you click on the link, you’ll be taken to a form to record your response. I’d like to thank you in advance for taking the time to record your information! I am really looking forward to seeing the results!’
