    Aww! What a great picture of your girls!!! My eldest was a preemie (born 4 weeks early), but he was born at 6.3 lb.!


    OH! And I will go and vote!

    And for V-day, we’re having dinner with a bunch of our friends!


    3/4 of my babies were preemies.

    Anyway no plans… no clue so far!


    Probably out to dinner.
    I voted!!!


    Awwwwww! So tiny and cute!

    We usually don’t do big plans for Valentine’s Day – usually just a nice dinner in (with wine and candles). I haven’t decided if I’m going to cook something special this year, or if we’ll order from our favorite place down the road and have hubby pick up dinner. 😉

    Aloha: Super Bowl Plans


    Don’t really have Valentines plans. I think we are doing a date the saturday prior when it won’t be crazy busy with lovers! Other than that, something tells me we are going to just stay at home!


    We’ll have a fun meal w/ the kiddos out somewhere. Probably Chili’s or Applebees.


    Great pictures. I would have been terrified to have a baby that small. She is so cute. They are both cute now. Doylene


    3lb 2oz! Holy Moses!! It is amazinghow they catch up. Lovely pictures and thanks for sharing them.


    You know I don’t actually have any set in stone plans yet, but maybe some thai food and a good movie? I wouldn’t turn down some chocolates either. :O)


    Awww great pic, doll clothes wow thats kinda cool when u look back at it


    I have absolutely no plans for Valentine’s Day!


    My little girl was 5LBS and I thought she was so small, I can’t imagine 3LBS!!

    We will make cupcakes for Valentine’s Day. I love it.


    wow. doll clothes. I’ve not seen a preemie in person except in photos but that’s just amazing.

    Glad she is a healthy woman now.

    No valentines plan as yet. Not sure if dh will be here or not.


    Valentines day is a Monday, which means for us – it’s a regular day. Sigh! I so want a movie date!


    I don’t have any.


    Not sure what we will do since hubby is in training all that week. Sometimes we go out before or after for dinner without the kids.


    What a precious little baby you had! Doll clothes; wow she must have been tiny. I’m glad you stopped by Heart Choices as I’ve missed you too.

    As far as Valentine’s Day is concerned, I have no idea what we’ll be doing. My husband and I will probably have dinner at home …but together. So that’s a good thing!

    Blessings and love,


    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I am part of the over 40 club too 🙁 I will be 45 next month actually.

    For Valentine’s Day, I’m not sure what we are doing, but my birthday is the day before, so I imagine hubs has something special planned 🙂


    we will be doing nothing! lol, just enjoying him being home this year… and after he works all weekend, probably he will be tired… we normally celebrate before or after as its always crazy on the actual day!

Thanks for the lovely comment!
