This was my WordPress dashboard yesterday:

See that little number up there next to “posts”? The one that says 999? That makes THIS, the post you are reading RIGHT NOW, my 1000th post here on Bebehblog. Or maybe bebehblog. Or Bebeh Blog. One thousand posts in and I still can’t decide how I want to print my own name. Or how exactly to pronounce it, for that matter. Hey, free tip, if you start your own blog, spend more than .352 seconds coming up with a good name.

You should listen to me, I’m obviously an expert. I mean, I’ve written a THOUSAND THINGS on the interwebs.

I also passed my 3 year bloggiversary last week. July 24th marks three full years of me documenting pregnancies, births and babies in far too much detail. I posted twice my first day,  here and here, and got an earth-shattering 1 comments. If, for some reason, you find yourself trapped on a dessert island with no way to contact the outside world but somehow still with access to my blog, you can read every single post ever in my archives, right over there on the left hand side. It would be an excellent way to drive yourself insane even faster than just the starvation and isolation alone.

If I was a better blogger, the kind of big time internet famous I secretly dreamed of being when I posted that first day, I would have done some epic giveaway to mark 3 years of blogging. And then something even MORE epic for the 1000th post. I’m also coming up on 10,000 comments (well, sort of) and that probably deserves the MOST EPIC GIVEAWAY OF ALL (You get a pony! And you get a pony! And you get a pony!!). But alas, even after three years I haven’t had a single company hammer down my door to give me (and you) free stuff. It might have something to do with the fact that out of 1000 posts, approximately 976 mention my boobs. I am nothing if not a true professional.

So instead, you get the same thing you always get here: ramblings and bad jokes and pictures of my kids – although in reality, most people come here because they’re looking for circus birthday ideas or the baby tutu tutorial. Let’s pretend YOU came here for pictures of the kids doing fun summer things:

Watermelon Face

We call this look "wrapped around my little finger"

I'll take my ginger To Go

It's COLD!

He's actually fighting to get back IN the pool, despite the chattering teeth. He's turned into such a water baby.

Just the toes

One chubby peanut, nomming on a sandy pretzel

This is the life

This game is called splashy splash. Go ahead and try to guess the rules. (Also, pretty good for a point & shoot camera, right?)


My baby boy is now one of the guys

I hope three more years from now I’m celebrating my 2000th post.Although I don’t expect anyone to still be reading, I appreciate you today and always.

    I didn’t stumble upon your blog until last year, but I’ve so enjoyed reading it ever since. Congratulations on three years, and thanks for sharing with everyone!

  3. molly says:

    Wow! That is amazing! And I thought I was big stuff with my 500 posts in 5 years ;)

    In all seriousness, I am SO glad I clicked through to your blog one day. I can’t even remember when or how it happened but I think it was fate. And I cannot wait to meet you in like, um, 2 days! Squeeee!

  4. Sarah-Anne says:

    awesomeness, friend!! can’t believe you’ve been blogging that long…or that i’ve been reading for what seems like FOREVAH. ;)
    P.S. you said they teach you how to write better at BlogHer? Well, don’t because I love love love your writing. I laugh every time I read one of your posts.

  5. Audrey says:

    Congrats! I think I passed 3 years at the end of January, but I’m still 82 posts from 1000. :D YOUR KIDS ARE ADORB. Also — HAVE FUN THIS WEEKEND!!!!

  6. I love you and your blog and I haven’t even met you. Or spoken to you. That says something about the power of your words.

  7. Jennie says:

    Never tired of your ramblings! You make me smile, which is funny cause in real like I think I have spent .352 seconds total with you. :-) (that one time in Charleston in passing of the shared appt, and that one time at BJ’s like 8 1/2 years later.)

    And the pic of Caroline in the pink swimsuit– I counted– FIVE A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E bebeh chub rolls! LOVE THEM. I miss baby chunk. It’s my favorite part about babies. (and the only time in my life when chub was acceptable on my belly- so maybe I am living semi-vicariously through them!)


  8. Congrats on hitting 1,000! The swimming suit baby photo – KILLING ME. Too much cuteness.

  9. Leah says:

    Congrats on 1000! I find that number to be amazing. I have been doing this since early 2007 and am not even remotely close to 1000. You are a blogging machine. An entertaining, amusing and articulate machine.

    Also, that pink blorpy thing you call a daughter is quite possibly the best photo subject ever. I keep scrolling back up to the fist eating picture for additional lolz.

  10. Jess says:

    Happy 1000th! I love your corner of the internet, with your gorgeous bebehs and your general brilliance. I hope you’re still here in 3 more years too, I will certainly still be reading.

  11. Malanda says:

    Yay on 1000!! Your kids are adorable! I’ll still be reading for your 2000 post :)

    Happy milestones! I just finished catching up on your blog and I can’t believe how much Caroline has grown since I last visited (three weeks ago)! Her expressions just keep getting cuter and cuter with time. And Little Evan looks like a big boy now. There is no baby in him anymore, as you mentioned in one of your posts (I feel the same way about Bresho. tear.). I hope you have an awesome time at Blogher. I wish there was a last minute deal kind of thing (although I can’t imagine taking off right now with so much chaos in our lives) so I could meet you and all the other lovely ladies in person (it will happen one day ;) ). Keep being an incredible blogger! I will be reading all the way to 2000 and beyond. Love you and missed you too!!

  13. Kimberly says:

    Congrats! And I could look at pics of your happy bebehs forever :)

  14. Laura says:

    I love seeing pics of your bebehs and hearing about all your adventures. Keep the posts coming! I wish I got 1/8 as many comments as you…I’m not sure I’ll ever hit 10,000. Maybe not even 2000. Have fun at BlogHer!

  15. Hooray for 1000 posts!! You go girl! And this is crazy weird, but we actually starting blogging on the exact same day! That’s funny! July 24, 2008!! Happy 3 years and hope you have many more fun bloggy years talking about your precious kiddos, and of course….boobs :)

  16. Jacquelyn says:

    Congrats MRS.!!! Sorry I’m late to the party. AND…. you do not give yourself enough credit girl. You are HILARIOUS and we DO come for the pics of your bebehs and because you are AWESOME!! I also hope that in three years you are posting #2000 and I am sure even more people will be reading :)
