Happy Valentine's Day

♥♥ I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day. I wanted to share with you the gift Baby Girl made for her Daddy.

I traced her hands on some red paper, cut them out, and put them in the shape of a heart (I got the idea from a friend, but she's doing a special surprise so I won't reveal who... I don't want to take the chance in ruining the surprise! But you know who you are... thank you!). I taped them onto a piece of paper, then taped a bigger white heart on top of that. That way when Baby Girl painted on top of it, I could take the white heart off and her handprint heart would still be there.

It turned out SO cute and I have to say, she had a blast painting! I am going to be picking up more paint when we go to the states next month (they don't sell washable type paint here) and doing more projects. It just melted my heart to see her laughing and smiling so much while making her Daddy a special gift.

We are planning on going to the beach this afternoon. Baby Girl has been quite a few times, but has always played in the water. She drooled a lot as a tiny baby so if she played in the sand it would just be one big mess. blech We haven't had a chance to go much at all lately so we bought her some beach toys and are going to let her go for it! And, of course, the cat will be getting a can of tuna. :) ♥♥


  1. Happy Valentine's Day! I am glad that she had so much fun painting! She did a great job, I love the way it turned out.

  2. Good call on covering the hand-heart with the white heart! What a sweet sweet gift, too. Aw :) I hope Baby Girl had fun at the beach today!! Happy Valentine's Day ♥
