It’s safe to say I love holidays. And now that I have a small child, a girl even, I am pretty sure I love them even more.
I love decorating. Thinking of fun things to do. Holiday themed everything.
We spent our Valentine’s Day with lots of red at our house.
But first gearing up to the 14th we showered Ellie with lots of love. I did something similar to this for Thanksgiving and I decided to transfer the idea over for Valentine’s Day.
I loved it, Ellie loved it. My husband loved it.
I also think we are setting a good example for how important it is to be humble. By showing someone else how much you care, as well as showing her the positive attributes that make her who she is.
The last two weeks I filled Elliette’s sensory table with Valentine’s Day Delights. All reds, pinks, and a little bit of whites. I think it was a pretty good one, but I will say she was definitely ready for a new theme I think. I am loving the sensory table and so does she!

We then spent the afternoon, after nap time, painting our tractor. She had so much fun I think we should set up huge things to paint every week in the kitchen. I, on the other hand, struggle. I am a bit of a neat freak so I had to stop myself from wiping her, the floor, the table, everything off every two seconds.
Once I relaxed with the messy I had a great time painting with her.
Once we were finished painting I plopped her into a Valentine’s Bath. Red food coloring, red bath toys, red bath crayons, and red colored shaving cream for her to play with. Needless to say reds, pinks, hearts, were all my theme for the day!
Last year I did this Valentine for my hubby from Ellie. I had so much fun doing it, I decided to do a repeat for this year. I am loving these whole side by side comparison shots. I also think this Valentine will be a ton of fun when Elliette is older and can actually do it all herself! And I am pretty sure he loves it.
