Valentine's Day is definitely different since we became parents. One year my mom came over to watch Charlie so we could go to dinner, I don't remember what we did last year, and then there's this year. I was nursing the little one when the hubby came home from work. He put his stuff away and brought me a plate from one of our favorite restaurants in town. On my plate was a lobster tail, some hush puppies, asparagus, and a twice baked potato. Woohoo! Charlie was sleeping and Owen was still nursing, so this was actually more quiet and peaceful than most dinners at our house lately, so it seemed appropriate for Valentine's Day!
While Daddy was at work, we made his present.
It just took a white 8×10 canvas and some red acrylic paint. Charlie put his handprint on there first. I then painted Owen's feet and tried to put a V on there with them (it was harder than it looks to get a 3 month old to cooperate). I added the L and E once the kiddos were all cleaned up. Had I put Owen's feet a little lower, I would've been able to put the E correctly. But like I said, it wasn't easy to do this by myself and I think it adds character.
Here's my little love for his first Valentine's Day:
