It’s nearly impossible to describe how much we love Gage. His little chubby legs that run to the back door as fast as they can, knowing Dada is home. The exaggerated way he blows a kiss. How he begs for one more song to be sung at bedtime. It’s ALL of these things and more that don’t even measure up to a smidgen of love we have for him.
It seemed only logical to devote one day in celebration of the love we share for our son.
In preparation, Ryan and I sat down together with paper and pen to jot down the littlest things we love about our munchkin. The time ticked away chuckling about the little things that make him, uniquely him.
We decided even though it’s day 12 we’d still do 14 love notes attached to 14 balloons.
The menu was prepared, notes were written, and the guest bedroom decorated. All that was missing was our Little Mister.
We took our time eating and enjoying all the little moments (yes, even spilt juice & bacon kabobs being stolen by LuLu).
And then it was time to read him the notes. At such a young age, it’s debatable whether or not he understood what we were trying to tell him. But you know what? Whether or not he comprehended the words, he certainly felt the love behind them.
This special Valentine’s breakfast WILL become a yearly tradition in our home. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love; but also expressed for the little ones we love too.
And to think, next year it’ll be shared with not one Little Mister, but TWO! Should be twice the fun! xo
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your sweethearts!
