Happy Valentines

Valentines1What a different Valentine’s Day this is from last year. Back then, I was two months pregnant and I could barely hold down a cracker without tossing my cookies. Of course it was all worth it and this year I am more than making up for the lost calories. Besides some extra weight, we have a little ball of cuteness to show for it.

Thank you Aunt Diane for this onesie and our friend Saejin for the tutu. The combo is adorable. ♥

Valentines2We also will remember Avery’s Grandfather and Dustin’s dad. He passed away exactly a year ago. Thankfully, we got to tell him about his soon to be grandchild before he passed. He was so happy for us and told Dustin he would be a great dad. It was a tough first half of the year in 2013, but the process of being pregnant and now having Avery gave us an extra sense of connection with our own parents and their sacrifices. This Valentine’s Day we will think of our loves that have been lost but not forgotten and our new loves gained. Happy Valentines!
