When I see pink and red, I am overcome with happiness.
We had a simple, little fun day yesterday.
Eden and I spent the afternoon decorating hearts for our back door.
I love that Dustin always gets Eden (and now Ila) flowers too.
"hmmmmm, what are those?"
"Whatever they are, I like 'em!"
These are the chocolates I got from Dustin this year:
He got the entire. dang. box. FORTY-EIGHT Reeses. He knows me well.
Yep, I love Valentine's Day. It's so happy. But really, I love every day. Because every day is happy. And every day I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have the little family that I do!
This past Monday, Dustin came home for lunch. And when it came time for him to go back to work, he opted to take the afternoon off and take us to play golf instead.
It was the best day! The three of us watched Dustin play, and every time he made it to the green, he would hand Eden his putter and tell her to come with him.
Eden was in heaven.
Dustin wasn't doing that great when we started, and I said, "Uh-oh, Daddy isn't having a very good golf day today." A few holes later, after Eden struggled to get the ball in the hole, she came up to me and sadly said, "Mommy, I'm not having a very good golf day." Dustin and I cracked up. Ila and I drove the two golfers around. And it's like really hard to drive a golf cart with a baby in one arm!
That is the same hole (different angles) two and a half years apart. And I love that in both photos, she's wearing outfits that Dustin bought her - the first one from his trip to The Masters and the second one from The Shell Houston Open.
Eden got to celebrate Valentine's Day at gymnastics on Tuesday. She got to pass out and receive little Valentines from the kids in the class, and I made sure that she was definitely dressed up for the occasion because a few weeks ago, they had a Super Bowl week at gymnastics and I completely forgot, and I felt terrible when we walked in and all the other kids were wearing football jerseys and Eden was in her leotard!
We drive an hour to the place where Eden takes gymnastics (such is life when you live in the middle of nowhere), but it's only five minutes from where my grandma lives. So she comes every Tuesday and gets to watch Eden and hold Ila.
Two other little happy pictures:
Ila wakes up every morning around six to nurse and then falls right back asleep. At that point, I just leave her in our bed to sleep. A few nights ago, Eden came to our room in the middle of the night, so the next morning, they were both there, sleeping right next to each other.
And last weekend, on the drive home from lunch, they both fell asleep in their carseats, but they never let go of each others hands.
Yep, every day is happy.
