Violet at 4 Months

It's hard to believe my little Violet is 4 months old already! It seems like she changes so much from week to week too. Here is this month's update.

$10 at Target: Big Brother Treats

I've mentioned before that being a big brother has been, unsurprisingly, quite an adjustment for Jona. Aaron and I both try to spend time with just him, and let him know that he is still special and very loved. Time means more than any present or treat we could give him, but sometimes it's fun to surprise him with something. This month I decided to spend my $10 at Target on little goodies for him.

Stripes, Dots, and Blush Pink

Happy Valentine's Day! Like I mentioned in my post on Friday, I don't have any plans for today other than going to Jona's preschool party. There's nothing more romantic than spending your evening with a three-year-old hyped up on way too much sugar, right? #momlife

Other than the touches of pink, this isn't even a very Valentine's Day look, but it's what I wore in real life this weekend. We went to a birthday party for a little boy Jona used to go to daycare with, and it was a blast seeing all the kids together again. I realized after I got home that I didn't take a single picture, unfortunately. We also went to a wedding over the weekend and I didn't take any pictures there either! I've come to the conclusion that if it's not one of my kids or an outfit, I don't take a picture of it. I need to be better about that.

Do you have any fun plans for today? Are you good about taking pictures or do you get caught up and forget too?

Valentine's Day Kid Picks

Valentine's Day may be focused on romance, but I'm more excited about what I'm getting for Jona and Violet than what Aaron and I will be doing (which will be nothing... he has to work that night). Like a lot of holidays, to me Valentine's Day is made even more fun with little ones.

I've been having fun perusing all the adorable Valentine's Day stuff for kids, so I put a little list together of some of my favorites. Here are a few adorable Valentine's Day gift ideas for the little in your life.



I'm excited to go to my first school Valentine's Day party this year, at Jona's preschool. Other than that I'm just looking forward to having a date night one of these days, even if it's a stay-in date night. What are your Valentine's Day plans?
