|I just now noticed looking back at this picture that I put Carter's shoes on the wrong feet this morning, mommy fail!|
special book Ty and I got him for Valentine's Day. I couldn't get enough of my little man, squeezing him close and snuggling into him. I was excited for Carter to share his Valentines with his classmates. Dropping him off, I focused on that and the fact that he was having a party at daycare to get my mind off missing him. I kept thinking about last year and how we spent the entire day together on Valentine's Day since I was still on maternity leave and my heart yearned for another day like that. It was as though Carter knew I was struggling with leaving because he really hammed it up for me and gave me his best cheezer smiles before I left.

|This sweet book was the perfect read this morning!|
|Ready to spread it on thick before I left daycare.|
|Some of the treats I received before school started.|
Having such a fun day at school and then picking Carter up mixed with the fact that it was 61 degrees outside added up to being about ready to burst. I couldn't wait to get Carter home and head outside. He had a blow out at daycare along with a clothing change, so I had to put him in another red outfit before playing. This time I went with a red onesie, khakis, and little red shoes.

Carter and I wanted to wait for daddy to get home before going through all of our valentines. While we waited, Carter checked out all the flowers I received from students. He got ahold of a rose and had a blast ripping off all the petals one by one. Shortly after the destruction of my flower, Ty arrived. We were very excited to open the bag he had gotten to decorate and pull out the valentines from his friends one by one. It was so cute to see what different kids had made/brought. Carter enjoyed looking at his cards and wanted to eat something, so we let him have the goldfish he received with the note that said "I'm glad we are in the same school" while Ty and I chowed down on the candy. I was surprised by how many kids had candy with their valentines. Ty and I sure weren't complaining though, we will enjoy all of the treats. Today was my favorite Valentine's Day by far! I hope you had a good one as well.
