My Funny Valentine: A Photo Essay of My Son’s 2nd Valentine’s Day

I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day fan. In fact, it’s not really a holiday I make a big deal about much at all. But having a kid changes all that doesn’t it? I didn’t plan anything grand for our Valentine’s Day together, but in the morning I felt a bit guilty, so I pulled together some things in the house to celebrate the day of love with my littlest valentine.

    This was my son’s first second holiday. Meaning it’s the first holiday we’ve been through that we have photos of from last year too. :) I decided to document the day. Click through to see what we did…

  • He LOVES Oatmeal... and Chocolate

    He LOVES Oatmeal... and Chocolate

    My little man eats oatmeal pretty much every morning but I decided to make Valentine’s breakfast special with a little heart made of chocolate. He LOVES chocolate chips.

  • I Saw The Sign

    I Saw The Sign

    We’e been trying to get him to sign for 6 months. He understands them, he just wouldn’t do them himself. Well chocolate incentivized him to break out the sign more “MORE”. HA!

  • Have a Heart

    Have a Heart

    I had some felt hanging around from a past crafting project so I made him a little felt heart pin to wear for a little mini photo shoot I was planning…

  • Smile For The Camera

    Smile For The Camera

    We did a mini photoshoot in our guest bedroom (because it gets the most beautiful light). He struck this pose in one frame and I couldn’t help myself from putting a Cupid’s arrow and bow in his hands digitally afterwards. :)

  • For Comparison's Sake...

    For Comparison's Sake...

    I took a photo like this last year so I recreated it. He was much less a fan of the fake mustache this time around. Click on to see last year’s photo.

  • Oh What a Difference a Year Makes

    Oh What a Difference a Year Makes

    This was the image I took last year. He was only about a month old then. My what a difference a year makes in the life of a baby! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
