A different kind of Valentines this year

Anybody who knows me knows I LOVE Valentines Day!! LOVE IT!! I loved it when I was single and I love it married with baby(ies)! I always made Valentines for my friends with little goodies and wrote little notes to people reminding them how much I loved them. Now I do those things for my family.

Anyway, this year I'm VERY very pregnant and VERY very huge, which means I'm VERY very tired! Jim usually takes the day off, but this year he couldn't, which was a relief because I really didn't want to do anything this year. I didn't make Valentines for anyone and I didn't want any made for me. I just wanted to relax and not think about it this year... That's how tired I am.

Valentines Day shows up as scheduled and I realize I still want the day to be fun for Jackson, so he had a PINK bath, he decorated a couple valentines, and he wore a cute little shirt. I also had a couple ready made valentines, so I gave him one of those with some gummy Life Savers. He won't eat anything with sugar, but he loves any gummy candy. I started to get my old Valentines mood back as I did all these fun things with Jackson, so I made a lemon pie with a strawberry heart and chocolate covered strawberries. I even ordered a heart shaped pizza for dinner from Papa Murphy's. The pizza was delicious!







SO even though, I didn't go all out this year like I usually do, this was probably the best Valentines Day I've ever had.

The BOYS' room is completed!!

It's DONE!! Finished today!! I wanted something that would be "big boy" like, as well as "baby" like for both boys. I think we accomplished it. We are keeping BB2's name a secret till he arrives, so I omitted any pictures with his name in them.


Jackson's bed and new name letters.



BB2's crib and no name letters to show for him just yet.




Their dresser and bookshelf. The monkey picture and the giraffe picture above their dresser was made using the Cricut. LOVE the cricut!!



Just a little detail above their closet. I should have taken pics of the inside of their closet. I cleaned it out and organized it. It looks great!!



And this last picture is the best I could get of their whole room without giving away BB2's name.





Now I get to add Austin's bed...
