Valentine's Day started off like any other day...Todd going to work, me off to school, and Allie would have been dropped off at day care if she didn't come down with a fever the day before. A quick trip to the doctor informed us that she had a virus...and luckily it only lasted 24 hours. Allie spent her Valentine's Day hanging with Nana (thanks Nana for coming over!) Valentine's evening, Allie was back to her normal self again.
I was a bit sad for Allie because she did miss I'm sure a fun day at Lynnie's filled with heart shaped treats and red and pink crafts. But when I picked her up early the day before, I left her Goldfish Valentines (they were super cute...I totally forgot to take a picture of them) for her friends and we were given a bag filled with treats from her friends and an adorable Valentine crown she made.
Not only was Allie showered with love from her friends at Lynnie's, but she also received a Valentine card in the mail filled with money from Auntie Ellen and Uncle Joe (thanks guys!!!) Nana and Papa gave Allie some M&M's and money too! "Allie, what are you going to do with all this money?" I asked her..."Put it in my purse." she replied.
Todd and I gave Allie her Valentine goodies just before going to dinner with Austin, Uncle Mark, and Aunt Kat. An Elmo Valentine book, bead necklaces, a Mickey Mouse Valentine coloring book, and a Mickey button to wear.
My sweetheart here has a really hard time taking a photo with the flash on. She blinks every time! We gave up after 5 tries. Be Mine, Valentine!
This Valentine's day marks the first weekly photo for the belly growing pics. I'm feeling quite AWFUL...nauseous and tired ALL DAY LONG. I probably wasn't very lovable this Valentine's day...but we sure do love this little love bug in my belly. I've gained a total of 3 whole pounds...mostly from eating the most UNHEALTHY food I can get my fingers on and not working out AT ALL! NOTHING sound appetizing and all I want are fries and hamburgers...and that's about all I can managed to choke down. The site of vegetables make me gag. Hoping this first trimester goes by QUICKLY!
