Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day from my little love doctor! Yes, I unintentionally continued the theme from last year. I bought this Dr. Love shirt from Baby Gap on clearance for $2 when I was pregnant with him, knowing he'd wear it someday. Can't believe it already fits! I wanted a picture of him to send out to the family for Valentine's Day, so the other morning I decided to take one before he left for MDO. The sunglasses seemed to be the perfect addition, and the sucker...well, that's what we call "the-secret-to-get-him-to-stand-still-for-longer-than-2-seconds-so-I-can-take-a-picture" trick. Luckily for me I'm a hoarder, so when he didn't want to participate in a photo shoot I ran to my stash and pulled out this sucker that was left from a party we went to last year, and that did the trick!
I loved the way the picture turned out, so decided to use it as his class Valentine too. I picked up a package of party favor sunglasses at Hobby Lobby, put the sunglasses in a little baggie from Dollar Tree, and tied his card to it.
My mom always had a little treat for us on Valentine's Day, so I've continued that tradition with Manny. Against my better judgment, I picked up some of the musical instruments at the Target Dollar Spot as I knew he'd love them. And he does - they're a smashing success for sure! He hasn't stopped playing "music" since he got up. :) I also bought the little mailbox at the Dollar Spot, and glued it to a candlestick from Dollar Tree. I first saw this idea last year on Emily's blog, and was so excited when Target put the mailboxes out again this year since they were gone by the time I went to look last year.
He was so excited about all the toys that he wasn't sure where to start. I think the xylophone is his favorite though...he even insisted on taking it with him in the car on our way to MDO.
My sweet mom & dad also sent him a Valentine's treat - he was very excited about that too! Thanks mom & dad...you guys are so thoughtful. :)

Happy Valentine's Day friends!
