10 Months old and Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  We hosted a pre-school Valentine's Day party for some friends, but I failed to take any pictures.  Way too busy!  We had twelve kids here.  That includes Rosebud, who slept through most of it...but still!  
It was done on a shoestring budget-$9.78.  
We had a race between two teams using spoons to take conversation hearts from one bowl to another,  played "musical chairs" but instead of chairs had paper hearts on the floor that could be removed as the kids walked in a circle, and did a few rounds of "hot potato".
I read two Valentine's books that I checked out of the library, made a "love bug" craft, and had Jell-o hearts and pretzels for a snack.  Lots of fun, lots of friends.  
 Rosebud turned 10 months on Valentine's Day.
 She spends quite a bit of her time standing now.  She cruises the furniture/toys and will be walking before I'm ready, that's for sure!
 Daddy tried to get a nap with her, but she was having none of it.  She has things to do!  She is very busy and very chatty.
At 10 months, Rosebud weighs 16 lbs, 1oz and is 26 3/4 inches long.  She gained 6 oz and nearly an inch since last month.  I think she is also starting to look older in her face.  Hard to believe in 8 weeks we'll be having a first birthday party!

Oh she is adorable as ever! The one with her daddy is so cute.

I think that is so cool that you had a great party on a low budget. So many people get so caught up in the hype of kid's parties. We just do simple stuff and sometimes I wonder if I'm depriving my kiddos. Reading this made me feel like I'm not alone!
