My Little Valentine and a Trip to the Candy Store

Here she is...the best Valentine gift ever. She is definitely the light of my life...I just can't get enough of that spunky little girl. I had to take her out real quick to get some shots in her Valentines/Birthday clothes. Seriously, this shoot took a total of about 5 minutes because it was cold! And boy did she cooperate...It's fun when they get to be two and know what it means to "pose". Her little poses and expressions crack me up! Plus a little bribe to go to the candy store (see below!!) after helped. I knew I also wanted some fun candy shots to go along with the Valentines theme.

Yes, I made her bow (I've been asked) just especially for her birthday and aren't those little shoes to die for? I had to put a pair of socks on and stuff her leg warmers in to try to get them to fit, although they still kept falling off.

Love, love, love you Mylie Girl!
~See what I mean about the cute poses!~

~This picture above is my very favorite of all. It's the same one that cropped close up it both ways!~

I convinced Bennett to get back out of the car for "ONE" shot. He said "Mom, only one" and seriously, this was it. I amazingly stuck to my word and only took ONE click! So cute! I only had to bribe him with picking out what came out to THREE treats at the candy store.
~He did agree to pictures in the candy store, though~
Once he saw the big lollipop, he totally forgot about the other two treats he could have picked!

~Mylie's first response to the lollipop: "It's heavy!" And it was!~

My little Valentine cuties!

The workers at the store also gave them each a balloon. So fun!

{love the lollipop on her face}
Mylie also had to have the Valentine's Candy Corn. They have cute little tables and stools to eat your treats on.
I told the owner that I would put in a plug for her store...It's just behind the mall and such a fun place to take the kiddies! Check it out!

It's a Boy!

Oh yeah, did I ever mention I'm pregnant? Thanks to modern technology, we already know it's a boy (99% sure). I'm only 12 weeks along, but things were looking great today, and we are so excited. Especially Bennett. If it was a girl, he had already told my mom that she could just have it, but now that we know it is a boy, it will be staying with us.

So I know this is not a picture of a baby boy, but I did want to share this page of Mylie (she is finally in an album now!) (Oh, and can you believe she is going to be two in just 10 days?!!!) I am two for two on hairy babies, and I sure hope my next one follows suit. The best thing about Mylie's hair when she was born was that it was black with blonde tips. It looked like she had just returned from a trip to the salon. Needless to say, I am so excited for another cute little bundle! Next task...think of boy names. Any ideas? I have zero.
