We had a great little Valentine's weekend!

My grandparents drove from my hometown to visit us {and meet Walker} this weekend. It was so good to see them.

Our little Valentine was pretty sleepy on Friday, but I still managed to get him in his "My First Valentine's Day" bib and a shirt that said, "Handsome Like Daddy." 

My grandparents watched Walker while Brandon and I went to dinner for Valentine's Day. {Funny story, in the 6+ years we have been together - dating, engaged and married - we have never gone out for Valentine's Day! So this was a special treat.} We don't even do gifts, but Brandon was so sweet and got me a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure, which is so needed. But the best part? The card said, "Go get your nails done while I watch Walker." Now that, my friends, is a gift! ;) 

Anyway, we spent the majority of the weekend with my Nana and Pah, who just loved on Walker! Saturday night, my Nana made an amazing homemade meal for us all to enjoy, and they even brought a TON of food to stock our freezer. So amazing! 

I know I've posted a lot of pictures of Walker lately, and I promise I'll get back to my normal posting soon. But right now he is just consuming my life {and Instagram, ha!} and he's all I can think about. :) 

We are pretty sleep-deprived and it's hard to not get overwhelmed, but I saw something on Facebook the other day that made me stop and think - and it's been replaying in my head over and over:

"With children, the days are long but the years are short." 

That made me stop and think, reminding me to just enjoy these sweet, precious moments right now: his little bow lips; the way he lounges his feet out when I'm feeding him; his little lip quiver when he gets upset…because I know I'm going to blink and he's going to be going off to college. {And now I'm crying. Hormones!!!} 

I hope you had a great weekend, wherever you are! Cheers to another week.
