This boy is a banana monster. He can eat as many as 3 or 4 bananas in one day. Needless to say, we go through a crazy amount every week! I also love eating them in protein shakes, so between Henry and I this is about a 3-day supply.

Emme went to the dentist again this month. She's a brave little thing, that girl! She got her teeth counted, flossed and cleaned. Her favorite part was getting a quarter to go redeem it for a prize from the prize tower. She really wanted to keep the quarter instead but we convinced her to get a fun prize. And the icing on the cake was a sparkly Ariel toothbrush to take home. See you in six months Dr. Parkin!

This is what we do during quiet time while Henry is napping. Emme is getting really good at puzzles and sorting!

Candle-lit Dinner

To celebrate Valentines Day we always have a family candle-lit dinner. The kiddos think it's so exciting, and they love to help blow out the candles. In years past I've done a fancy meal that night. This year it was simple, but still a fun evening, nonetheless!

Valentines Day

On Valentines Day Chris and I went to Faustina for dinner. It was yummy food and good company, and so nice to have an evening away to ourselves. Love you, Chris! XOXO

It Tastes Like a Heart

Grandma and Grandpa Spencer brought us heart-shaped (Banbury Cross!) doughnuts for Valentines Day. Emme couldn't take her eyes off them. After she finished her dinner and I let her have one, she smiled and said, "it tastes like a heart!"
