Valentine's Day

Scott and I are not very big into the romantic holidays, but this year we had a very nice Valentines Day without really planning or talking about it. I spent the day making a yummy Butternut Squash Lasagna and then dashed to the store with Owen to pick-up our favorite Sea Salt Baguette and the fixin's for Caprese Salad (you can't ever go wrong with tomato, basil, and mozzerella!). Scott picked up cards and chocolate from both him and Owen. A bottle of wine and we were set!

The card from Owen was super cute - it says something like "To My Mommy, My First Valentine" and Scott even traced his hand prints as a signature. I'm not really into cheesy sentiments, but when they're from you own kid...I cried. Owen also brought home a footprint heart with an "I love you mom and dad" message on the back. Have I mentioned how much I love our daycare? Fabulous. Miss Megan said it was pretty funny trying to get his footprints (see the previous post about movement and wiggling...), but I appreciate that they take the effort.

The other fun thing this week is that Owen has found a new sound. It's a pppppffft sound that he makes by pressing his lips together and acting like he's playing the trumpet. He thinks it's pretty funny, and we have to agree. I finally got a chance to take some pictures without a bib on yesterday (at Scott's request), but they all came out with this same look. PPPPFFFT!

Such cute pictures! I can't believe how he's grown.

I like your new design. I've been messing with mine, too, and I'll be putting up something soon. Any good tips to share? Mine isn't looking nearly as good as what you have here! (Okay, I realize yours isn't brand new, but I haven't been able to read blogs for a while now.)
