Early Valentines

My mom thinks that no matter how many grandkids she has (she's up to 7) it is adorable and totally necessary to buy "baby's first..." outfits for the big holidays following a grandchild's birth. And she's right :) Necessary AND adorable! I dressed Caroline up Saturday because Joe would actually be home to see her, and I knew we'd be out and about so other people might see her (prideful much? Yup). Well, we went out to dinner as a family and she could have been seen, but we were the only people in the restaurant. Still, WE enjoyed her outfit immensely. Thanks, mom!

Sister Vejnar painted her toenails - so perfect!

The pants are adorable, but the tush was my favorite part! Unfortunately her un-cute bald spot is the same size as that very cute heart, so when you turn her around they sort of negate each other. Neither of our boys ever got a bald spot - poor girl! She's practically a monk!

When I got home from work (yep, I'm back!) Joe surprised me by already having Valentine's gifts - a mango-scented bath set, including bubble bath, which means I will GET to take a bubble bath all alone! No little naked people or bath toys in sight, and I am seriously looking forward to it. I'm not a lifelong fan of taking baths or anything, but just about anything "alone" sounds appealing after spending five 12-hour days alone with the kids. It's why I choose to clean the kitchen after dinner while Joe gets to put the kids to bed (if he's home early enough). Plus, he brought me two big bowls of chocolate candies, which means he DOES love me! Hooray! Happy Valentines!
