Valentine's Day Weekend...

We had a fun, relaxing, Valentine's weekend.

Amelia received a new Valentine Fancy Nancy book. I definitely see a Fancy Nancy party in Amelia's future...such cute books!

Amelia also received some wonderful things from her Aunt Joy! She looked so cute in the little onesie and striped baby legs. We love you, Aunt Joy!!

Amelia and I gave Daddy this picture in a silver frame. The frame was engraved with "Remember This Moment" at the bottom. He loved it. He decided to take it to work for his desk. I'm sure we'll be changing out the pic in that frame often...lots of moments with his girl that he won't want to forget! :)

My Valentine surprised me with this! Okay, can I just say that I'm not a cheap person. I spend money on things. But a phone is something that I don't like to spend a lot of $ on. (A pair of shoes - that's another story) Any phone that I've owned (that is really nice) - Alex has bought for me. I'm excited to learn how to use it! He also surprised me with Amelia's birth story...this was the most special present of all. He wrote it for Amelia and as I read it, tears just started streaming down my face. I don't remember a whole lot from those first couple of days in the hospital, so to go back and read his feelings through it all was very emotional for me. I will probably post it sometime this week. Such a special gift.

We spent a lot of of the weekend at home. Look at her holding that head up like a big girl. :)

Do you see my daughter's bald spot on the back of her head? (LOL) When does their hair start really growing??

We pretty much ate our way through the weekend. Friday night, we went to Kobe and enjoyed my favorite meal. Filet, fried rice & veggies!!

Saturday night, Alex picked up take-out from Olive Garden. I get the same thing every time. Angel hair pasta w/marinara. Boring. Yet so yummy!

Amelia always gets the same thing too.

We went to Panera on Sunday night. They have a caesar salad that Alex loves and a veggie soup that I can scarf down within seconds. You should see me.

It's attractive.

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I'll be posting my February giveaway tomorrow, incase you want to come back and check it out!

Love to all,

Aww, it sounds (and looks) like you had a really wonderful and special Valentine's! I love my iPhone and am a Mac-a-holic now, thanks to it. We bought an iMac shortly after getting the phones and we just love everything Apple makes. You will love it! Be sure to get the google reader app, it RULES.

I remember when L got her huge bald spot in the back of her head! So sad, but it does fill back in quickly. I would say within 2 months it started growing back in well.. and she had just a big huge frizz ball mess of hair for a while. Now it is long all over except she has these hilarious two horn looking spots that need to grow out... baby hair is too cute.

Love to you all!

LOVE the owl onesie so much. She is too precious!

Is that a big tone on tone "A" painted on her wall? That's awesome!

And, yay for the iPhone!! You will love it so much. Get the echofon app for Twitter. There's so many other cool ones. Way to go Alex!!!
