Birthday Fun!

Last week was a long birthday week for Miranda! On her actual birthday (Wednesday) we went to her friend Jayden's house and played. Jayden's mom took some pictures, so when I get those, I'll post some. Wednesday night, the boys and Matt and I celebrated with Miranda. She got a new toy and a few cards from the grandmas and grandpas and great-grandmas.
On Sunday after church, Matt's parents and brother came over for the afternoon. After a nice chili lunch, watching football, and sleeping in the basement, we all did (more) cupcakes for Miranda and then Matt's brother Greg took some pictures for us of Miranda. There are a ton of great pics, but here's just a few:

Playing in the Kitchen

Miranda has figured out that playing in the kitchen is fun! Matt put drawer latches and cabinet latches on everything except the pots and pans and Miranda loves to get into that cabinet. Unfortunately for me, now that she's in the kitchen a lot more, I have to sweep the floor multiple times a day because she'll pick up any tiny bit of food that's left on the floor!

Hi everyone! Lots going on in the Herndon household. Miranda is walking all over the place and on the you will see by the few pictures I can actually get her to sit still for! I am totally recovered from my kidney stone episode. REALLY hope I never have to go through that again!

Big news is that I got a new job! It is still at the same hospital where I work now, but in a different department. The big news is that it is 2 days a weekends, nights, or holidays!! That's a big change from the ER. I'll totally miss all my friends and the excitement of the ER, but I am really looking forward to the new department and meeting all of my co-workers.

Here's some recent pictures for you all!
Matt and the kids and I went to "the Cupcakery" to celebrate our friend Rachel's birthday. Rachel and Kyle are below. Check out the cupcakes, too...they were very yummy.
The kids enjoying their cupcakes.
Miranda also enjoyed the cupcakes.More big Miranda more bottles! She does great with a sippy cup and has switched to all cups and whole milk.Here's Miranda in our new Ergo baby carrier. I was able to purchase one for 50% off the regular price from a friend on the Guatemala adoption forum on Miranda LOVES being in the carrier and it is helpful when I'm trying to make dinner and she's a little crabby. Today I used it when we went to visit Max's 1st grade class.
