Valentine's Day = Silas is 9 months old!

Silas is 9 months old today! It's hard to believe that he is 3/4 of a year old, or that in 3 months he will no longer be our baby, but our toddler!

Silas is such a happy child. He is always smiling and giggling!

Or blowing raspberries! This is his new game while at church! He'll blow raspberries at the people around them, clap, and do it again. He loves it when people laugh and smile at him and it makes me want to do it more!

When he isn't blowing raspberries or smiling (or putting his fingers in his mouth!) he seems to be sucking on his upper lip. That little bit of his tongue seems to always be out.

He is my favorite Valentine, after his daddy!

For Valentine's Day Gammie watched Silas while Josh took me out to dinner. We went to the Rokerji and had a yummy dinner. We exchanged gifts and Josh surprised me with the beautiful necklace above. It's hand stamped with Silas' name and is paired with his birthstone. When we got home we snuggled Silas and put him to bed and watched a movie together. It was the perfect Valentine's date!

That is wonderful! It's too bad that he and Henry aren't going to grow up together...they sound like they would get along perfectly. :)
