Since becoming parents, little holidays like Valentine’s Day have made dressing up an entirely different deal. We used to get dressed up, go to dinner somewhere fancy, and stare lovingly into each other’s eyes. Now we spend a month before the holiday looking for the perfect outfit for our little bugs to wear, get them dressed up, and stare lovingly into each other’s eyes.
When our relationship was new we always heard the older, more experienced couples tell us that our Valentine’s Day date nights wouldn’t last long. We would tell ourselves that this was not going to be us. We wouldn’t lose the romantic nature of our love. Haha. I am happy to say that we haven’t missed a Valentine’s Day date yet. We have allowed our little guy to accompany us the last two years (his first V-Day he was only a week old and naturally slept right through dinner-you’re welcome table next to us). Now that there are two, the date may be harder to lasso. We wouldn’t dream of ruining dinner for those couples next to us that haven’t given up on the idea of Valentine’s Day. Luckily, we have amazing moms that believe our children are the perfect Valentines. True.
While it is easy to see the commercialized state that Valentine’s Day has become, it is also easy to make it an excuse for another romantic night out. There can never be too many of them. And it is easy to find a cute outfit for my little ones and snap a million pictures. Go ahead and celebrate. With your kids, with your partner, or (like us) with both. And check out our Valentine onesies while you’re at it.
This little guy couldn’t be cuter in one of our ties. These photographers are the best at what they do. This includes loads of cute baby pictures with perfect backgrounds.
