First Valentine All Over

I got home exhausted from a very long hard week of work but decided to stay up late after everyone went to bed to make a Valentine’s Day tutu dress for my daughter.

She woke up around 3am, not long after I went to bed and she had a hard time going back to sleep, probably from more teeth coming in, so I was up most of the night. This morning I ran around getting things together before our professional photo shoot.

Right before I ran out the door I grabbed a teddy bear I’ve had for exactly six years. It was the bear my husband gave me for Valentines day six years ago. “Our First Valentine” it says on the heart it holds. A perfect prop for my daughter’s first Valentine with us.

We were married two months before Valentines day, and had met just eight months prior. Things are a lot different now.

I snapped a few photos myself while we were there for my 365 project, but I’m so glad I had these done. It took her a while to get into it and show us her breathtaking smile, but Mr. Teddy helped us pull out some laughs from my little girl.

We put her to bed early and ordered from our favorite restaurant to go (Olive Garden). And hubs got me my favorite treats for celebrating: chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling cider.

Our first Valentine with our daughter was much different than it was for us six years ago, but one thing’s for sure–There’s a lot more love going around.


Oh, how precious. I’m sure you’ll treasure these for years to come. xoxo
