My husband woke me up as he does every morning and kissed me and our baby on the forehead before he headed off to work. He whispered,”Happy Valentine’s Day,” before heading out.
We thought my daughter didn’t hear him because she had her eyes closed, but 5 minutes later she rolled over and grinned at me,”Happy Valentine’s Day!” she yelled as she kissed me on the forehead.
I laughed and pulled her into a big bear hug and kissed her smiling, happy face. I know she was just copying my husband (and doesn’t know what it means), but it was the cutest thing ever.
I think she had a good day. We went to the mall and walked around for a while. We visited grandma and went to the Disney Store where I picked up her present, a Doc McStuffin’s Doctor Kit, and she picked out my husband and Mom’s presents, a Cheshire Cat and White Horse from Tangled.
Then, we went home and played for a while as she giggled and snuggled with me. Valentine’s Day has changed for us. Before it was about me and my husband celebrating being a couple. Now it’s about us as a family — getting together and having a wonderful meal and day together.
Here is our day in pictures:
