Liam's "Sprinkle"

Today was so special!

My wonderful Community Group friends wanted to have a little celebration for Baby Liam, so they put together a precious "sprinkle." We are so blessed with these friends. We know they love our Cohen, and we know they'll pass that love on to our little William, too, when he gets here. These guys have loved us so well, for about 4 years now. We only hope we can love them as purely as they have us!

The party was at Jackie and Patrick's house. We had BBQ. :) They know me too well! And each of the girls made a fantastic side dish to go along with the meat. Sweet tea and lemonade.. yum, yum, yum!

Get ready for too many pictures!

The delicious spread!

Look at Liam's adorable banner. 

Flowers by Sallie, she is so talented with flower arrangements.

My love bug, stirring his tea.

PK and his son, Mr. Colton!

They made an elephant drawing for Cohen and Maggie to color, but Miss Maggie was a little sick, so she didn't come (We missed her, Tyler and baby Baker!). Cohen colored it later. :)

The Rays!

Chowing down!

My big guy!

Ashley and baby Brooks and Jackie!

My dad, Patrick and Colton.

The hubby and me!

Presents for Liam!

William Emile Miranda

Daddy and his boy!

Patrick and Brooks, we missed Cory!

What was the dessert? Why... Sprinkles cupcakes!! LOOOVED it!

Getting after the coloring! (or "drawing" as Cohen called it)

Sallie and Jackie

The Coles even brought a gift for Cohen to open, so he wouldn't feel left out. It was a wooden pizza kit and he just loved it! Played with it for the rest of the party!


Granna and Pop got him this sweet onesie a few weeks ago in Canton, it says Made in Texas. :) So cute.

Me and the daddy! :) Love him so much!

I could be a professional cupcake model!

Hector and his buddy Patrick.

Sweet Brooks was so sleepy and fell asleep snuggled up next to Jackie. 

I had such a nice time! I'm so thankful for my friends throwing it, for my parents driving over for it and for Hector being able to take a long break from work to come and enjoy it with me. Thankful for the gifts Little Liam received today. We're getting so excited to meet him!!

a late post from my birthday

We celebrated my 27th birthday about 3 weeks ago.

We had a fun dinner with Josh and Cortney, Jesse and Reese and my parents, but of course, I took the camera and didn't get it out. Fail. I got a Keurig coffeemaker and accessories and coffee! So excited!

Then Coco and I went to Paris for a few days. (Hector had to work.) :(

Coco helped Granna frost the cake!

That's about as smiley as my dad will get, unless you just catch him smiling.

Eating a stick?? Not sure..

Man, I know I'm partial, but that is a beautiful kid right there! Love him to death!

We came back on my actual birthday, and had a nice dinner with a few people from our community group. At Cracker Barrel! (comfort food cravings fulfilled!)

Sweet Colton and his daddy Patrick!

Sallie ventured out with Maggie and Baker all alone, since Tyler was out of town.

They were playing a very involved game of checkers!

Jackie, Colton and I!

The men: Coco, Hector and PK.

Colton thinks he can take pictures, too!

The Rays! Love this fun picture of them! 

The hubby and I! (29 week baby belly with William!)

And the three of us! 

It was a great way to spend my birthday! :) With family and good friends. Can't ask for more. 

First trip to the library!

I have been meaning to take Cohen to the library for so long. We're home most mornings, and there is a library like 5 minutes from our apartment.

So today, after our breakfast, a baby powder fight (Cohen found out if he shakes the powder, it will fly out and go everywhere) and showers for both of us, we loaded up and went to the library. It was only 98 degrees outside.. so.. yea. We were sweating by the time we got there. Yuck. Did I mention I'm ready for this outrageous heat to ease up?

Now, Cohen is a pretty loud kid. He's happy and excited and he shows it with his voice. :) So he had a pretty rough transition into library world. But then he kinda "got" it and started whispering. And he would mouth words at me and think I understood them. It was cute, but none of it made sense. Haha.

I love this sweet picture of Coco. I tried to get a picture of him just looking at books, but as soon as he saw me pull out the camera, he came up and started cheesin'.

It's still pretty fun (not to mention easy, since I'm 8 months preggo!) to get away from Mama, so, he liked to stay about one row over from me. And he would tell me, "I jus' lookin' mama! I only lookin'!"

Lots and lots of children's books. We came home with about 8!

Then he discovered the kids' computers. He didn't know exactly how to play any of the games, but thought he was real big, sitting there with the headphones on, pressing all the keys. :) Gosh, he's cute!

As I was checking out our books, he ran back over to the children's section and came back with a Cars book. I had seen him looking at it earlier, but he put it back. So cute that he remembered where it was and grabbed it for me to check out. It's a book that introduces and talks about all the characters in "Cars". That's my boy! :)

So, a successful first trip to the library!
