Valentine Hearts

Ever since we were given our first onesie for Baby Girl, Cooper has been noticing hearts and pointing them out to me. At first, hearts were just for Baby Sister since the onesie has a heart on it. With Valentine decorations everywhere, hearts have been easy for him to spot.

I found these adorable felt envelopes in the dollar spot section of Target. February3002I had seen something similar online and had been wanting to make them, so these were a great purchase for only $1 each! Originally, I was wanting to hang them on the back of our kitchen chairs, but little grubby hands keep our chairs very sticky. So, I added ribbons to them and hung them on our bedroom doors for me to tuck valentines inside.

Last week was very busy and wore us all out, February3001but we managed a candlelight dinner on the back patio one night. (That is, until Cooper blew out our candle.)February3004I tried a new recipe called Crispy Baked Pasta with Mushrooms, Sausage, and Parmesan Cream Sauce from Serious Eats. The sauce alone was worth it! Such a complex flavor that I couldn’t wait for Stephen to get home to try it.February3003

Friday was our Valentine’s date. Silas and Cooper are enrolled in a private daycare, so we dropped them off for three hours while Stephen and I went downtown for Food Truck Friday. February3005February3006Each Friday, various food trucks gather in the Phoenix Public Market Cafe parking lot and offer lots of options for lunch. I had a four cheese grilled cheese sandwich, and Stephen chose the wood fire pizza. February3007February3008Then we split a Reuben-style hot dog and a raspberry cheesecake. Yum!

Baby Girl and I are now 23 weeks along. She’s developing some muscle to her kicks and squirms. Next year, we’ll have another sweetheart to celebrate on Valentine’s Day.February3009February3010
