Update to Valentine's Day + Lots More!

Wow, what a fun weekend!  It really feels like life just keeps moving wayyy too fast for my blog to keep up with it!  I don't know how some people do it with updating right as things are happening, I'm lucky to get caught up once in a while.  Anyway, here we go!  (Warning...this is a very picture-heavy post!)

Valentine's Day reveal!  I decided I wanted to do something really cute and get Art a gift from our daughter to him for Valentine's Day.  So, I went to Gymboree last week and bought these cute little clothes for him.  He loved the card too, it was so sweet getting to watch him read it.

The baby also bought him a couple of parenting books for Dads:

He really liked the Be Prepared book because he said it looks like the Boy Scout handbook, and he is an Eagle Scout.  

Now this is the really cute part: I was thinking that I was very clever with buying him a card and gift from the baby...and it turned out that he bought our Sweet Pea a card too!  I couldn't believe we both had the same idea.  He also made me a delicious dinner:  Beef Wellington!

The cooking process:

The finished product: 

Soooo good!  

So last Wednesday was Mommy's first shopping trip for Sweet Pea, when I bought the outfits for her to give to her Daddy for Valentine's, and I think I mentioned last week that I went ahead and bought a bunch of things so that I could qualify for the Gymbucks (haha great excuse right?)!  Here's everything I bought our little girl: 

Also, I just have to share this because it almost made me cry.  After announcing that we were having a little girl, a friend from church brought in a little bag for was this adorable outfit:

I just thought that it was so sweet and thoughtful of her.  

Lastly, for my news from last week, I was lucky enough to win an online contest for a free maternity workout top from  me2roo!  I was thrilled to get it in the mail on Friday and decided to wear it around the house on Saturday (I didn't actually do any workout that day, but I did pull some weeds...does that count?)

Bump picture (19 weeks!!!!) with my free me2roo top:

You can see that my belly is really growing now!  Loads more to update on, but that's all for this post :)
