Our Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Cupcakes [ Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing and fondant toppers for the mommy and baby Valentine’s Day party ]

Valentine's Day Flowers [ 200 flowers from my husband, which came with a teddy bear, bath salts/shower gel/bubble bath, and chocolates ]


[ Cady very excited about a balloon at the Valentine’s Day party ]

Cady was nervous at the party at first. There was a lot going on. We hung out in the kitchen and snacked. She wouldn’t let me put her down. Later when Daddy came to drop off my cell phone, she wanted to leave with him. Every once and a while during the party she would ask where he was thinking that he was still at the house.

After he left, I found a comfy chair in the corner where we could have a little space but still be in the room with everyone else. She quickly forgot about her reservations when I put her down in front of all the toys. I was even able to go to the other room to get my camera or walk to the kitchen to snack. Later she would want me to be close to her again while she played or even ask me to carry her. I think being with a lot of people can be overwhelming when you’re not used to it, especially when most of them are towering over you.

She did enjoy herself. I think it will be good for her to have opportunities to play with other kids. We have some friends coming over tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to that, too.

You can usually find with the "bigger" kids (ages 7-11) at church. I think it won't be too long until he develop true stranger anxiety and shyness.I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!
