First Valentine's Day

I tried to do a little Addison photoshoot.  She was having  She was tired and irritable...I could do nothing to make her smile.  I even gave her a heart shaped sucker.  Arg!

For some reason this month is one of my most memorable months being pregnant...just a year ago.  It seems so surreal that I was 8 months pregnant on this holiday the very last time I celebrated it.  It sank in at Christmas, but there was so much going on that I didn't really slow down to think about it.  But Valentine's Day...I just remember hoping "the baby" would come.  Obviously when Mike was home.  Any little flutter, the lack of movement, or trip to the bathroom- I prayed and prayed it was time.  That time never really came.  And it sure didn't happen like I thought it would, but here we are a year later with our little baby girl.  

Every year the Two Bulls' tradition is to make homemade heart shaped pizzas and some yummy desserts.  I was introduced to this last year and was lucky enough to be able to celebrate with them again this year.  Michael was home.  Yay!  And we invited his grandparents over and Scott, Dee, and Nate and ate pizza, drank a couple glasses of wine, and ate yummy iced cookies.  

It was perfect.  It was all about family.  And I love that.  Lou, you were such a little ham.  Like always. You love going over to Auntie's house.  Everyone loved your tutu!  You were the best Valentine to both Daddy and I...WE LOVE YOU PRINCESS <3
