My boys... you are my Valentines. I wake up and see your smiling faces and I melt. Sam, you walk out of your room and your face lights up when you see me and Dad. I love to see you first thing in the morning (well.... as long as it's after 6am!). And Nicholas, every morning you wake up with a smile. You will chat to yourself for a while in your crib and then get just a little louder to let us know its time to get up. When I come to get you, you have a giant grin on your face... what a fabulous way to start the day.
Last night we made valentines for your class. You picked tattoos for each classmate based on what you thought they would like. You even drew some special pictures for your friends. This morning, we planted the strawberry seeds I got you for Valentines Day in little pots. We will watch them grow and then plant them in our NEW garden in the spring.
We play this game where I pretend to eat your food before I give it to you: "Is this for me?" "Nooooooo....its for you!" You laugh and laugh and laugh! Sometimes we play it with your pacifier. BUT, this morning, for the first time, YOU played with me. You put your paci in your mouth, took it out, looked at me with a sly little face, and put it in my mouth .... and laughed. You were playing with me! It is so neat to see you developing into a little person.
Happy Valentines Day to my special boys.
