My Valentines


Emily's most favorite holiday of all time? St. Valentine's Day. Let me come clean right away. Her love of the day has absolutely nothing to do with anything I've done for her in years past. Generally, her relationship with the holiday is highly asymmetric (see this post for more details). I have this creeping suspicion that focusing on making others feel good has a positive correlation with self fulfillment and happiness.

This year, in one fell swoop, Emily turned February 14th into Summer's favorite holiday as well. A scary amount of goodwill can be acquired through the gift of a giant chocolate heart. Behold exhibit A:

To be honest, we were unaware of how much chocolate and peanut butter a baby could consume, but Summer eclipsed all expectations in the first five minutes. Candy for breakfast?  Best parents ever.

I can personally attest to the fact that babies can consume large amounts of chocolate. Whether that is a good thing is still up in the air. Summer is a cutie!

We totally let Nora indulge in cookies and chocolates in commemoration of the holiday of love. I think that Valentines Day is also her favorite holiday.
