My Little Valentines

It is still February so it’s not too late to share a few Valentine’s day pictures with you, right?My Little Valentines -

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.My Little Valentines -

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!My Little Valentines -

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.My Little Valentines -

If you want, you can go back and see Henry’s past Valentine’s day pictures here: 2013 // 2014.

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!My Little Valentines -

I hope that you all had a special Valentine’s day with your sweethearts!

She Is Here!

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 Is Here! -

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.

She Is Here! - finddailyjoy.comSo far Lily has been the complete opposite from Henry.  She is a content and easy going baby who actually sleeps!She Is Here! -

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.She Is Here! -

Welcome home little Lily.  We love you!She Is Here! -
