Valentine's Day didn't go exactly as planned this year... but things never do most days! Brady came down with a bug (fever and... more) on Monday, so he ended up missing school and his Valentine's party. I was so bummed for him because he was really excited about it. We made super cute (and super cheap!) photo valentines at Walmart and I was able to drop them off so his friends got them.
I was also in a panic because I thought this meant that Matt would have to stay home with him and miss our "find out the sex" ultrasound. But Brady was in good enough spirits Tuesday morning (a breakfast with pink heart-shaped pancakes, candy and other presents will do that to a little boy), so we decided to take him along. We thought he might even be excited to see the images of his baby sibling. He was not. In fact, he kept asking when he could go back home to eat more candy!
This was the first year we went "all out" for Valentine's Day and we had such a good time. I can't wait for the years to come!!
Moms with little girls may get to dress up their Valentines in cute heart shirts and pink tutus, but I get to buy obnoxious t-shirts for my little dude. This one says, "Most Eligible Bachelor". Ain't it the truth?! And ladies, he is an animal lover too (pictured here with "Foxy Loxy" and "Bailey", his newest stufties)!
Despite having the sickies, Brady ended up having a pretty good day. We took Daddy to a quick lunch before dropping him at work, then we spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch vegging out and watching movies! Not too long ago, I was spending my Valentine's Days at some of Chicago's finest restaurants. This year, my date and I had chicken nuggets and mac n cheese... and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way! I hope everyone else had a fantastic day.
And no... I am not neglecting to share news about the baby in this post by accident. Those of you who are on FB already know, but I'm saving the "announcement" for this week's Project 52, so stay tuned!!
