February Randoms

It's February and we need a new convo starter! So, do you guys celebrate Valentine's day? If so, what are your special plans? 

We don't celebrate it but I love hearing sweet date ideas.

Re: February Randoms

  • This year will probably be low key. DH’s youngest brother is coming home from overseas on the 11th (he just finished 6 years in the Air Force). So our usual date night sitters (MIL and FIL) will be tied up with getting him settled into life here again. Honestly with having two kids under 4 and two jobs, I’d be happy for a day off. Lol. 
    We’ll probably do our usual- dinner and a movie- though.

  • I normally get the kids something and we do a special thing for dinner.

  • We don't usually do anything for Valentine's Day, but when we bought our house (last April!), our realtor gave us a gift certificate to a nice restaurant nearby, so we're using Valentine's as an excuse to use it. And my husband will be getting a small gift for Nora!

  • We will actually be at Disney world on Valentines Day, so that’s kind of cool.

  • So Nate decided to wake up at 1:30 am today. I didn't get to go to bed until 12 because of the stupid super bowl. So I get him around 3 because I couldn't open my eyes long enough to stand up until then. He fussed and tossed and turned and screamed until 5:30. I wake up DH because I've had enough and need to get ready for work. They lay down and Nate goes right to sleep...... There's not enough coffee in the world to get me through Monday. I'm gonna need my students to shut up and leave me alone today 😂

  • We don't have any Valentine's day plans.  We usually don't do anything anyway though. I could use a vacation though! 

    @mccurleya that sounds awful! Hope you get some better rest tonight!

  • I'm hoping so. DH is gone for a week so if he wakes up tonight I'm alone in it this time

  • We don’t do much for Valentines Day. In the past I have made a heart shaped pizza or meatloaf for dinner.

  • I got 9.5 hours of sleep. Praise Jesus. 

    @megpeg heart shaped pizza sounds cute! How do you shape it?

  • We don't do much either. Sometimes I cook a more "fancy" dinner than normal. We might open a bottle of prosecco. :D

  • @mccurleya I just make the dough for the crust and then make it into a heart before I bake it. It usually looks heart- ish still after it bakes. 
    I have also made meatloaf muffins and used mashed potatoes so it looks like frosting.
     
    For halloween last year my kids requested a footloaf. It was shaped like a foot with and onion slice as severed leg and ketchup as blood.

  • After after months of sleeping with us Declan has slept the last 2 nights in his crib. Last night I gave him a bottle, a blanket, and his favorite little stuffy and put on his star turtle and laid in bed next to the crib. He went right to sleep. He slept from 9:30pm to 6:30am in there and then in our bed until 10.

  • @sgrn18 how exciting!!!! Nate is just starting to do downward dog. I'm not ready for walking haha 
    shoretobe
  • @sgrn18, yay!!!! It’s so great to watch but so nerve wracking because they will fall a lot. Running comes not long after walking. 😂
    shoretobe
  • It is so funny watching him! He got so excited when MH got home that he tried to walk faster and fell lol.

  • @ashtuesday - Happy Birthday, Nora!!!
    And also hope your appointment goes well today (I think both are today). 
    Is she our first baby in the group to turn 1?

    @sgrn18 yay for walking!

    How is everyone doing?
    ashtuesdayDDRRT1982
  • We have a 1 year old!? If so, Happy birthday Nora! 

    Oh dear. I'm not ready for that either. Nate was the last of the group so I have time but y'all this growing up thing is awful. 
    ashtuesdayDDRRT1982maelily15
  • Yay!! Happy birthday Nora!!
    ashtuesdayDDRRT1982
  • OMG Happy birthday, Nora. I can't believe we have a 1 year old! 

    I also can't believe you're little ones are walking. Vinny is just starting to cruise.

    Happy 1st Birthday Nora!  

    Is it just me, or is anybody else feeling weepy with these babies heading in the big one?  The first birthdays of the other two were tough, but this one is seeming harder.  Maybe because it’s gone “faster” having two others or the fact that the kids are growing older and babyhood is so fleeting?  I feeling myself getting teary eyes several times already and I still have a few more weeks.  Ugh, it hurts my heart.  

    On a a different note, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.  We don’t have a sitter and we are apprehensive about hiring someone we don’t know we’d have to take a second mortgage out for a few hours out!  However, I bought these little mailboxes for the kids and my husband so starting tomorrow I’m going to do some cute little treat/trinket for them and a little homemade heart with a saying that goes along with the gift every day through Valentine’s.  It’s been cold, dreary and icky we could use something bright.

  • @fatstagnation Nate can't even stand or pull up so you're further than us! Haha (although Nate was 3 days away from being an April baby)

    @mccurleya Maeve’s more with Nate I’d say - she likes to pull her self up holding our hands, but is happiest to roll where she wants to go - not really crawling or standing on her own. She just figured out clapping. I love hearing what all the little ones are doing - because it is so different even though there so close in ages - it’s an amazing preview of their little personalities 😊

    edit: words

  • @ashtuesday So adorable! I'm glad you had a good talk with your doc and are feeling more comfortable with him.
    mccurleya I think Vinny is 6 days older than Nate? She was born 3/23. Her cruising is one or two tentative steps, and really only if I'm sitting right by her. Usually she'll sit down, move over and stands back up. :D 

    Her newest thing is that she hands objects to me and then waits for me to give them back. So sweet!

  • @fatstagnation he was born on the 27th. He'll take a few steps with his walker but that's it.

    @mccurleya Maeve’s the 27th too - she wants to go so bad, lol - just doesn’t have the balance yet. She’s big on wanting to stand and she take steps holding our hands. 
    I’m super excited because my cousin had a little girl on Wednesday and I’m hoping she and Maeve become good friends. 
    @fatstagnation that is too cute. 

    Who is our next Birthday baby? I’m sorry for not knowing. 
    ashtuesday
  • @shoretobe I don’t know either. Declan’s is March 9. 

    @mmom3  I feel exactly the same way. I hate even thinking about it. I was so excited for my oldest and this one seems the complete opposite.

  • Sam might be.  Her bday is Feb 27th.

  • Well we started daycare today.  I was all worked up thinking I am traumatizing him. I made MH come with me because I knew I would break down in the car.  LO was so enthralled with all the new toys that he didnt even care when I said bye and left.  Im currently waiting on access to the camera systems which is probably better since im sure I would watch them all day if I had access right now.   I did cry when we left but Im keeping myself busy as hell this week. I started him a week early because i wanted to be completely available to answer questions or whatever they need.  Ill probably pick him up early today too because right now I just miss my baby.  

    LOs bday is on 3/14 (he wasnt due until April 5th!) So just over a month until he is 1!! Crazy! 
    ashtuesdayDDRRT1982mccurleya
  • @sgrn18 You will make it through the day, mama!  I'm so glad he was so happy playing with all the new toys - that is a good thing!  Give us a full report on how the day wound up going - for both him and you - when you can!
