1 John 4:7
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
we certainly don't need a date on a calendar to remind us to love one another, but having a day devoted to celebrating your love for one another definitely doesn't hurt. here, we love valentine's day. we love any excuse to show each other how much we care and to spend time loving on each other.
dax brings so much love to our family and we pray that we always show him even more love in return. while we love him with all of our hearts, it warms our spirits even more to see both of our extended families find great joy in spending time with dax and showing him love. they love to play with him, rock him, cuddle him, feed him, sing with him - anything they can do with him, just to get to spend time with him giving him lovin's. it is truly wonderful to watch your children grow up with the love of family.
lately dax has learned about showing and being shown love through kissing. he loves it when you shower him with dozens of kisses right on his face, his cheeks, his head, his neck - etc. he cuddles up deep in your chest and brings his arms in very close, just giggling with every smooch. he's also learned that when you say "kiss" that it's got something to do with the lips. he's still not quite sure how to give you a kiss, other than to sit still and hold his mouth out for you, but it's still pretty cute.
we'll have an at home family v-day celebration tomorrow night and all exchange cards. we got dax some books to add to his growing library, so we'll have some family story time before bed time. then, will and i have a date night on friday and dax will be hanging out with the neighbors while mommy and daddy enjoy some french food. it will be great to get out of the house, be dressed up - not carrying a diaper bag, and have adult conversation. we're looking forward to a grown up night out! then, on saturday we're watching their son so they can go out on a v-day date as well. i am sure the boys will have a blast playing with each other both weekend nights this week!
we wish everyone a valentine's day full of love and kindness!
