Valentines Day in our household is spent celebrating a birthday. Elijah Valentino - mine and Fonzy's Valentines baby!
Being the last baby, it seem he grew up the fastest. 14 years have flown by! A few things have remained constant since he was a toddler. He still loves sweets, candy, cakes, you name it! And he carries a ball with him AT. ALL. TIMES! This is his current ball, which he bounces all day long. If he is up, he is bouncing a ball.
Being a Valentine baby is kind of hard. We normally don't go out on his birthday because all the restaurants are packed with Valentine dates, so he normally has a low key day. I try to make what he wants, but it's not always a success. This year he wanted red velvet cupcakes. So red velvet cupcakes I made. Not sure why he wanted them, since he wasn't even sure how they tasted. He was surprised they tasted like chocolate...kind of. For birthday breakfast I always make him heart shaped pancakes. He got heart shaped french toast and bacon this year. For dinner he wanted a Philly cheese-steak which wasn't cheesy enough for him. I bought him a bunch of candy, so I won with that. You win some, you lose some.
Happy Birthday Elijah!!! We love you to the moon and back!
