my funny valentine

this time last year, unbeknownst to us, this little sweetheart was busy growing away in my belly.  just one week later, we would learn that our life was about to change.  no longer would we celebrate life as just a family of two.  soon, our lives would be blessed and enriched with a precious little life.  a new love that we had never experienced.  hubby and i have always enjoyed celebrating valentine's day {a excuse to clink fancy flutes of bubbly and nibble on chocolate} but we are so excited that we now get to pour out some love on our little.

oh elinor, you have already brought us such joy.  you make us laugh.  you make us sigh.  you make our hearts swell with love with every gurgle, coo, and smile.  we just love you so much.
