Joy on Valentine's Day

I'm thinking back to last year with a smile today.

Valentine's Day 2011 was the day we told our family that we were having a baby.

We bought a pack of onesies and personalized them for our family members, and then sent them off in the mail.

Across the nation,Valentine's Day is a day full of roses, chocolate, and romance, but I think from now on, Jesse and I will always think of the joy we felt on the day that we got phone call after phone call as our family received their Valentine packages and discovered our exciting news.

Isn't it amazing how time flies?  Last year, all we had were these little tissue-wrapped onesies {and a lot of morning-sickness} to show for our newest little family member...

And now we have this beautiful, pink, curly girl with smiles brighter than the sunshine and enough chubby little rolls to kiss over and over and over.

She brings us so much joy!  This is the happiest Valentine's Day ever.


  1. I just can't get over how much she looks like Jesse!

  2. She is a doll! And yes, it's crazy to think that a year has gone by since you shared your good news!

  3. This post made me so excited because I get to have a little girl next year!!! I am loving all of the sweet picts :)

    1. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! Little girls are so much fun :)

  4. Oh Bethany that is the sweetest way to tell a family your expecting. I love watching the videos of different ways people tell their loved ones. We found out with both our boys we were expecting around Grandparents Day. That is how we told both sets of parents they were becoming Grandparents. With a card and a sono pic. Thanks for linking up over at SweetTalkin' Sunday!!

  5. She is so cute! That is a sweet way to tell your family about your news.
