It is still February so it’s not too late to share a few Valentine’s day pictures with you, right?
I had started a tradition of dressing Henry up and taking pictures of him on Valentine’s day so of course I had to continue that tradition this year.
The bouquet of flowers that Henry is holding is my bouquet from our wedding. When I made the decision to use artificial flowers I was only thinking about saving money. I never thought I would use them to take pictures with my future children!
Oddly enough, Henry cooperated with my picture taking antics and Lily did not. She did not want to sleep nor did she want to look at the camera. She mostly cried because she wanted to be held. Oh well, maybe next year I’ll get a picture of the two of them together.
We didn’t do much for Valentine’s day this year but Henry and I did manage to squeeze in a little art project. I pinched a toilet paper roll to make it into a heart shape and then taped the roll to hold it’s shape. Henry dipped the end of the toilet paper roll into paint and stamped it onto paper. Once the paint dried, a wrote a little message on the paper and Henry presented his Valentine’s day card to his Dad. He was so proud to show off his artwork!
I hope that you all had a special Valentine’s day with your sweethearts!
Hello again!! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately. It’s hard to believe that I haven’t really been on here since Thanksgiving. Between Henry’s never ending cold, three ear infections, Henry’s birthday party, Christmas, the flu, computer hard drive crash, internet issues, baby preparations, and a new addition to our family……well…..I’ve been a little busy. So now that I just dumped 732 pictures from my cameras onto the computer it’s time to get caught up. Lets start with some exciting news first.
Our sweet baby Lily has arrived!!!
She was 6 lb 12 oz and 20.5″ long.
I am so thankful that the labor and delivery was easier this time. It has certainly made for a quicker recovery.
So far Lily has been the complete opposite from Henry. She is a content and easy going baby who actually sleeps!
At first Henry was curious and a little hesitant but he quickly warmed up to Lily. He calls her “my baby”, showers her with kisses and loves to help take care of her. It melts my heart when he is so sweet to his little sister.
Just stopping by to wish you a very Merry Christmas! We hope that you enjoy this special time with friends and family. I am looking forward to the candlelight service at church tonight. It should be a wonderful time of … Continue reading →

Have you ever heard of wagon or stroller costumes? Before last year I had never heard of them but I have to say that they make a lot of sense. When your little one is too small to walk around … Continue reading →
