our love week recap

She loves her friends but she just wanted to play with them instead of take a picture of their matching shirts, HA!
 I still can't believe it's been warm enough to play outside... without pants and shoes!

Valentines Day was SO fun this year!! Eric started the fun by celebrating each day of the week! Last Monday he came home with a treat that Mia and I could share! Tuesday he gave me a bouquet of flowers and a stuffed dog for Mia. Wednesday we got a box of chocolate (Mia thinks hers is some type of rattle... she just walks around shaking the box, HA!) and Thursday he surprised us with an amazing, fancy chocolate surprise filled with goodies for all of us! He's never done anything like this so it was SO fun to be surprised each day :)
On Friday I dressed Mia in the onesie that I made with some girlfriends the week before. Then Mia and I went to a little love party with out friends and we both had the best time! When Eric came home I made a fun little dinner and then we gave Mia her gift. I think the book couldn't be more perfect considering we have been calling Mia our love bug from day one! Mia was in the best mood all day and we loved all the laughs and kisses she was handing out :) We all enjoyed far too many sweets that day... but isn't that what Valentines day is for?? ;)
Eric and I celebrated a day later with a fun day date! My parents watched Mia while we went to a movie (movies are a special treat for us now that we have our precious babe. It's kind of our favorite date!), did a little shopping and enjoyed an amazing dinner complete with chocolate fondue dessert! Like I said... Eric totally spoiled last week!
Valentines is the cutest holiday and I love celebrating it! Yes, we should show our love and appreciation every day, obviously, but it's still fun to make the day a little more special! It's gonna be funner the older Mia gets.... or maybe it will become a major stress? Only time will tell, ha ha!

Hi there! Thank you for your comment on my blog! First, those cookies look SO good, I'm about to crawl through the computer and eat them up! Speaking of eating them up, your little girl is the most precious thing I have seen - and that picture of her eyelashes is just SO SWEET!
