Argument against a Valentine's birthday and a video

In a comment, Aubri tried to convince me to convince Patrick to wait until Valentine's to be born. But I don't want to. Why? I'm selfish. Valentine's day is one of the few excuses I have to go on a date with my husband WITHOUT kids. I don't want to lose that in favor of celebrating a birthday. Obviously, if he decided on V-day on his own, I'd deal with it, BUT I'm not going to try for it. Just like I wouldn't have wanted Erin to be born on my anniversary if I had been going to just wait for labor with her. Those are my guaranteed date nights, and they're important to me.



And for cuteness, a video of Matt trying to teach Erin to catch her ball. At one point she says "thank you" to me, but you can't hear her...

Erin is so cute. This age is really fun. As for having a baby on a holiday..... I don't like it either. I like having separate holidays.That way you only have to celebrate one thing at a time.

Alright so maybe it IS just me...

Tell him this for me:

Patrick, what ever day is your birthday, will be the best day you could POSSIBLY be born on. And do your mom a favor and don't be born on V-day.

I love you friend!!! :-D I'm not even kidding you, I am so excited for this little guy to get here. Yay!!

I love the part at the end of the video when she kind of runs into the counter. That's HILARIOUS! She's such a cutie!
