Valentine's Day Pictures

This was my last weekend of winter break before the spring school semester starts. This semester is going to be very tough for me...the last 2 semesters I've been in school since Marino was born I was able to avoid having to actually go to class 2 nights a week. This semester, I'll be gone Tuesday and Thursday nights, and school adds an extra hour commute to my day. The classes I'm taking (Land Use Planning and Environmental Planning) are also going to be more difficult and unfortunately not quite as interesting as the courses I've taken the last 2 semesters as well (my area of interest is affordable housing). It will be a challenge, to say the least. But I was able to soak in a lot of quality time with my boy this weekend, which was great. I just love Marino so much!

I had wanted a Valentine's Day themed shirt for Marino that wasn't too feminine. Luckily, my friend Jill over at Zingo Tots has lots of cute Valentine's stuff for boys and girls (including very affordable DIY iron-on appliques). Check it out:
Thanks, Jill, for the adorable shirt and for getting it to me at the perfect time!

It was actually nice enough to get outside for a few minutes AND Marino got a fresh new hair cut on Saturday thanks to Aunt Chelle's boyfriend, Kelvin. We were able to go outside and do a little Valentine's Day mini photo shoot with the boy. Here's some of the pictures we took....

This is this crazy face he makes when he's being silly...Evan thought he was having a seizure the first time he saw it, but he just does it, I guess, because he thinks it feels funny? Who knows what goes on in the mind of a toddler...
This one is my favorite (obviously, since I made it part of the blog's header)
Here he is saying "bye bye moon" (no moon was in sight)


  1. What great pictures of Marino! I love his shirt. I am going to go check out the site. I am looking for a Valentine's Day shirt for Brandon.

  2. LOVE the pics!!! You are taking some amazing shots with great composition!!! He is adorable :)


  3. Gina, that is a huge compliment coming from you. If you ever want company when you go to take pics for fun, let me know...I have lots of questions I'm saving to ask you!
