a few things I don't want to forget about February so far...
I kicked off the month helping to throw a baby shower for a friend from church. We had a reaaaaaly simple night. Our theme: "We Heart Heather!". Chocolate fountains with dippers, a spot to write "love notes" to the baby, and a few heart decorations here and there. The heart collage was my favorite part, with old photos of Heather and her family. I think Mama & the new baby (to be) felt the love that night!
Being in 4th grade and navigating the world of valentines is tricky. "Will you be my Valentine?" on a card is no longer innocent and sweet. Everything can have double meaning. Berk settled safely on valentine's jokes (found here) taped to a piece of chocolate. My favorite was, "What kind of flowers do you never give on Valentine's Day? Cauliflower!"
I'm looking forward to my Valentine's gift from Morgan... a day trip to Big Bear! Sadly, I've never been up there or to Lake Arrowhead. We won't spend the night, but we have a cabin to use as home base. I picture good driving conversation with my man, a walk around town, maybe a nap, and some yummy dinner.
Isaac is our little lover. I melt over the way he talks (and talks and talks) these days. His "I love you" comes out more like "I laaa yoouu, ma" or "I laa you, dad". I've taken to saying it that way to the family now and I like it!
