Good friends equals good times!

We got the honor to see sweet baby Coby get baptized this past Sunday. He and his Na Na looked sooo precious in their traditional outfits. He was so cute during the service...he was truly the sweetest, happiest baby and just showed his precious personality.
Afterwards, we went to celebrate with their family. It was such a great time. We had some yummy appetizers and a little bubbly to toast this monumental occassion. Of course, the mamarazzi/sisterazzi was out in full effect. I love this pic of Annslee and Paige. I think they are so cute. Paige loves her like a little sis.
IMG_2013-Edit Of course, with these two, there is ALWAYS their fare share of silliness and outtakes : )

Paige is not a "baby" kinda kid. Some kids beg to hold babies and lug them all around...that's just not Paige. I put Coby in her lap and snapped a few pics. When I was finished, she looked at me and said, "That wasn't so bad. He's a good boy" : )
IMG_2035-Edit I, of course, held this angel from above as many times as I could get my hands on him. Laura let me feed him his bottle and he even obliged and nustled into my arms and relaxed while I rocked him. You just don't know what being around him and his sissy do for this girl who would LOVE to have a baby! He makes me want to hop on the next plane to Vietnam and bring home a baby boy. COME ON VIETNAM...Open back up and let singles bring home children!!!
I am seriously wanting to adopt right now...badly! I knew it would hit me one day and it has hit in a biiiiggg way! I mean, look at him...isn't he perfect???
What a blessing this family is to mine.
Lala and family, We Love You Guys!

Oh I just love these pictures. I especially like the second one of the girls being silly. So cute! They are so cute together and it is such a blessing that they have each other as "sisters". Coby is absolutely adorable as well. He has the sweetest face. Glad you all could share such a special time together.

Looks like you had a great day with Lala and the gang......Paige is so her silly pose:)

I wish I lived closer to LaLa and the gang! That Anslee is a HOOT! I got tickled .. I noticed she was wearing "dress-up" shoes in the pics! LOL!
SO Anslee!

Precious! I love that Paige and Annslee have such a special relationship. The Tongginator has a "Paige" in her life, too. And it is so precious to see.

Jboo said...

Sweet!! Paige and her little "sis" are such cuties. And that baby boy -- he is simply adorable! How nice that you all live close enough to be there for each other on special occasions!


Gail said...

Love all the pics Missy. Coby has amazing! Well you already know that I think you'd be the best mom and should adopt. :)


Kerry said...

Love the photos! And yes Coby is darling.

Have you ever thought about adopting from the Marshall Islands.
They accept singles. And my best girlfriend has two children from there and is adopting a third. The wait is under a year or so (depending on how long you take on paperwork). I am baised- but the children are beautiful, healthy, and very special. Let me know- my agency is currently the only one licensed to do adoptions from there. Amazing place- near Hawaii- but has terrible poverty. Sorry for my unsolicited thoughts here- but I love you and you would be the best mom!

Marla said...

Awwwww, Missy needs a baby!!!!! :) Love the pictures, that Coby looks like one sweet boy. Love the first one of the girls too.

LaLa said...

We are so blessed to have you in our family as well! I will send you some more pics too : ) Thank you for taking the pics at the ceremony too.

Oh, a disclaimer here, Annslee chose that outfit herself LOL

Missy you will be the BEST mom in the world and hope you find your way : ) I do have friends adopting from the Marshall Islands too...

Sherri said...

Those 2 girls are so cute together. It's nice how close you have gotten as families. Did you meet each other through the blogs, or do you live in the same city?

You will be an awesome mom!! I'm so excited for you that you are thinking seriously of adopting.

Great photos, love the photo of you holding Coby..

Donna said...

What cute kids...and great photos!

Julia said...

I would love nothing more than to follow your journey to Vietnam!!! I remember when you looked into China adoption several years ago and felt it just wasn't the right time. Sounds like you're there now and then some!

The Byrd's Nest said...

I am so thankful you have this precious family Missy.

He is darling isn't he??? I just love his lips!!!He has the sweetest little mouth!

I have never stopped praying for you to go ahead...I got ya covered in prayer girlfriend!

Super Mommy said...

Sounds like a perfect event Missy! Love your pictures - especially the out takes!!

I'm awaiting Vietnam to open again too ;0)
