Big Love for a Little Valentine

Happy Monday! Did everyone have a lovely weekend? We’ve never really made a big deal about Valentine’s Day in the past, so it wasn’t too different this year with a baby.

Celebrating all of baby’s firsts has been one of the most exciting things about his first year! I love doing something special for each holiday, even if he is too young to remember.
