Miller Week 18

The beginning of last week was busy with Valentine's preparations. Rather than stress out by trying to go to dinner, we decided to make a nice dinner at home but that took planning since everything takes so much longer with a munchkin.

We started off the day by getting up and getting ready. We got packed up and went to visit Ben at work. We delivered the pink champagne cupcakes that we had made (btw, they might be my new favorite). We had a breakfast that morning that had been cancelled so I asked Ben if would like to join us for lunch, so that was our romantic date out.

Miller and I came home and waited for Ben. Here are the Valentine's that we made. (From left to right) Miller made that one for his girlfriend Isla. The next one we made for Ben. It has his little fingerprints inside that I tried to shape like hearts but just did not work. It has a glitter heart on the front because Ben hates glitter. The last one is the one I made for Miller.

We got some other exciting Valentines. My two best friends, Heather and Lindsey, both finally came out to the world to announce that they are pregnant and due within a week of each other. We already knew but I am so excited that we do not have to whisper about it anymore.

Miller and his Valentine from Mommy and Daddy. Of course it goes straight in his mouth.

My boys with their Valentine's cards.

Here is what I got. Kind of strange I know. Flowers and a card are standard. The cheesy pouffs, I love them but never keep them in the house because I will eat them all. Ben got them because I keep hearing that I am not eating enough calories for nursing. My candy was my favorite, and yes it does happen to be Easter candy. Then there was the chocolate wine that I always wanted to try but never could convince myself to get because I am not the biggest drinker. I told Ben years ago that I would prefer homemade cards. Normally they are fine but I loved that this one featured my little cupid on it. He is the little angel in the top corners in the front and he is inside.

For dinner, we made salmon and spaghetti carbonara. It was so good! We also had leftover champagne from the cupcakes, and chocolate dipped, cheesecake stuffed strawberries.

The next day we had Miller's 4 month appointment. Doesn't he look so cool in his sunglasses? He actually really likes them, which is good because I hated him getting the sun in his eyes in the car. I laughed the whole time I was driving looking back in the mirror to find this.

I already reported about his appointment but here he is when we got home. Look at those rosey cheeks. He was fine that afternoon, took a long afternoon nap, and that evening he was horrible. He would not stop crying and even mommy cried. Thanks goodness he was all better the next day!

Trying to eat his feet.

Playing video games with daddy. At first he was so entertained by them, and helping Ben drive, but he soon fell asleep.

This weekend we went to brunch with Steve, Heather, and Isla, ran some errands and huge out around the house. We tried to rest after our busy Valentine's/doctor's appointment week.
