V-Day, Hail, Giggles, Yadda, Yadda, Yadda

Valentine's Day has come and went. We started the day off by going out to breakfast. Then we came home and did housework. The weather was stormy so it was a good day to stay in. Then I had to run to the store to get my mom a Valentine since she was coming over. When I got back a dozen red roses, card and two boxes of See's candy waited for me on the counter. There was also a single pink rose and card for Sonya! What a cute husband. He still does surprise me, even after 9 years.

For dinner we went to a restaurant that does not take reservations. Big Mistake. Note to file for next year, go to restaurant which takes rezzies. We got there at 6:15 and did not sit down until 7 p.m. Riots almost ensued in the waiting area when the host started calling people out of turn. Sonya slept in her car seat carrier the entire time but as soon as we were seated she woke up. Dinner was not as good as they usually are there and it was so freaking crowded, but I was in good company, so that is all that matters.

We spent the evening drinking flat champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.

Yesterday it hailed so hard and so much that even after an hour of it hailing, there were still piles of hail on rooftops and sidewalks.

Sonya just started to laugh. Within the last week she has busted out a belly laugh a handful of times. Like when she learned how to smile, there is little rhyme or reason to what causes the laughter (except for the goofy noises and faces I make). It is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Last night at the in-laws house for dinner, hubb's grandma was able to get a laugh out of her. Everyone was jealous that she had the magic touch (well, besides me, since I already do!).

Baby belly laughs are the BEST!!

Smiles are great, then the giggles, and when they are asleep and snuggle into you while you carry them to bed. ::sigh:: Those are the best times.

Bayley laughs really hard now when we play with her. She cracks us up.

I loved making my sister and cousins laugh like that. Even now with Seth and Swae. Belly laughs are the best. Sounds like your v-day was lovely (other than the wait).
