Happy Valentines Day!

I love Valentines Day!
Today I will be making my loved ones some yummy cupcakes with homemade strawberry butter cream icing! Yum!!!!
Of course, Aron can't have any sugar yet, so he will have to settle for some pureed strawberries and bananas!!!
I have so much to love about my husband on this Valentines Day, so this post is dedicated to Eddie.
As most of you know, I met Eddie when Alexandra was 6 months old. He instantly fell in love with her and had no qualms about stepping in as her father. He is the absolute best dad I have ever seen. When Alex was a baby, he would change her diapers, give her baths, even pick up her "mess" when she got sick! (so, he got plenty of experience and was ready for Aron!) I knew he was the one for me when I saw how much he loved me, by loving Alexandra so much.
It's been 10 1/2 years that we have been together, 9 of them in which we have been married and I am so thankful that he is in my life.
Happy Valentines Eddie and I love you SO much!

Throwing a ball and a fit!

Well, as I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Aron is learning new things everyday it seems! I thought I'd capture some of these moments on camera.
This first one is of him throwing a ball....

Then, here is a little video of him throwing a fit! For all you girls out there who say "Oh, he seems so happy, does he EVER cry??!" He LOVED this truck when he got it for Christmas, but has now suddenly developed a fear of it??

Happy Valentines Day to ME!

Woohoo!!! My Valentines swap came today! Caroline had me and let me just tell you, she is SO creative! This girl puts me to shame! Firstly, kudos for packing it in such a cute padded envelope! I love it! She attached a note to each and every item with a cute little ribbon! Thanks for putting so much time into it!
My daughter was SUPER excited (even though it is not for her) and she begged me if she could open it. She gave me the whole sob story that she never gets, I caved and let her open it, but as she took the things out of the package I took pictures of each thing!
Here is the beautiful package (excuse the coaster, but I had to cover up addressess! This is a public blog, y'all!)

The "R" luggage tag! Which I will definitely use this May when I go to Miami!

Yummy chocolates! These are SO not good for my diet! Too bad I ate them all already!

Valentines Day notecard set! (Caroline, be on the look out for one of these back to ya, girl!)

Valentines Day dish towels! I don't have any Valentines ones, so these are perfect!

Playful pez! I seriously feel like a kid again! I had to FIGHT my daughter for these! I won, of course!

And of course I had to get a picture of myself in there to prove I was there when we opened the package! 'Yea, that's right! I'm posin' hard! Ha! Ha!
These are the cutest spatula's ever!!!!

And by popular request, here is a recent picture of my little man! His recent obsession is Thomas and Friends. He wore some pajamas last night with pictures of Thomas on them and he wouldn't stop looking and pointing at his pajamas!
Also, he is crawling, throwing a ball, saying "da da", "baby", "by bye"!!! I'm such a proud mommy! Now, if I could just get HIM to say "momma"!!!! Videos to come soon!

THANK YOU SO MUCH CAROLINE! It's so great to have a new blogger friend!
