Happy Valentine’s Day?

Are you starting to understand how these posts work? A holiday happens or a milestone arrives, and about five to ten days later you can expect a post about it. So we’re all on the same page? Good. Now here’s how our first Valentine’s Day as a family of five went down. It was pretty much like any other Saturday, except that this year, when February 14th rolled around, my heart was so full of love that it nearly burst.

Will and I have celebrated fifteen (yes, fifteen!) Valentine’s Days together already, just the two of us. So for the past decade and a half, my heart has been pretty full. And then, last April, three (three!) tiny people came into the world and filled my heart to bursting. I am completely enamored with my three little valentines. Take a look at these faces. Who wouldn’t be?

My favorite fellas:

And our little lady:

Jack couldn’t get enough of Sophie’s little ruffled butt!

As if my heart wasn’t already about to burst, I had the pleasure of visiting two of my other favorite little people over the long weekend.

Little Lily. Wearing Sophie’s “hand-me-downs,” days after Sophie last wore them herself! Nevermind that Sophie is the older cousin by a solid eight months. Love this teeny peanut! So happy to finally meet her.

Selfies with over-excited nearly two-and-a-half-year-olds can be tricky…


Noah and I had oursevles a snowy day! Crunch, crunch, crunch.


Bedtime stories and mustache footie pajamas.

Henry, Jack, and Sophie enjoyed furry Valentines from Grandma (who is really their great-grandma) and a musical card from Baba (also a great-grandma)!
