New Office

Here's a little video of walking through Coby's new office. You have to turn your head and it isn't the same as when you are actually there but it gives those of you that are far away the idea of what his new office looks like. We moved next door to where he used to be but it's the same phone number and everything. We outgrew the other office and so we decided to stop sharing with another agent. It's smaller in square footage but has a conference room, work room, and a kitchen nicer than the one at our house. We are adding a window into Coby's office and doors on the work room so we can lock the files in. It still needs a little decorating but we love it and already feel at home there.

Fourth Picture in Fourth Folder

I saw this on my friend Joell's blog and thought it was fun.

Rules: Open your pictures file, go to the fourth folder, and then the fourth picture. Post the picture and write a little bit about what was going on!

This was on Denver's 3rd birthday and it's my dad holding Beckham and my brother sitting by them smiling. It's in my family folder and reminds me of how nice it is to have family so close to spend special occasions with. It's nice to have my kids know their extended family so well.

Fun Stuff...

I haven't got much to blog about but we've taken some pictures that I thought I'd post. Today they had a health safety clinic at mom's elementary school and denver got to see the life flight helicopter come and land and look around it. They had the big ladder firetruck, an ambulance, cop cars and everything. Denver has started painting when Beckham is asleep and he's getting pretty good. Beckham is getting a fun personality and always into everything, if it makes a mess or loud noises then he loves it. We're enjoying the last of the good weather and grilling alot and we've had a lot of fun.

Happy Birthday Coby! I can't believe that I'm married to someone 30! He's getting so old :) For his birthday I got all the old sports pictures and news paper articles from his mom and put them into a scrap book. 94 pages later- here's a couple favorite pictures. He's so great at everything: sports, work, being a dad and husband. I'm very lucky and just want to wish him happy birthday!

Well today was Denver's first day of Preschool! He was so excited he wanted to go all by himself, but he told grandma that mom would have to drive him since he didn't have a car yet. He did great and loved every minute of it. I'm so proud of him for not being scared or crying. He's going to this wonderful teacher Nicole Nelson (her blog is on my list on the side) and she is so great! I worked with her at North Park before she had kids and decided to run a preschool out of her basement so she could stay home. I'm so happy to have a place for him to go that I know the teacher so well and know that he will learn a lot but still be a kid.

I don't know where a year went!?! As I look back and remember what an exciting entrance he made into the world, I should have know he would become a special kid. Beck has turned into a very mischievous, independent, fun little guy. He loves food and will come running if he sees anyone eating. He loves to play with his brother and is already starting to get his own way . He is always smiling unless he's hungry or tired (like his mom) and we love the atmosphere he brings into our family.

Here's a little bit about his story when he was born, you can stop reading now if you remember, I remember it like it was yesterday (it still makes me sick to my stomach). I woke up with contractions at 3:15 in the morning. The hospital said to take tylenol and get in the bath to make sure I was in labor. I did that and straightened my hair and got into bed. The contractions where consistent at six minutes for an hour and a half so I told Coby we should probably go. I went to get out of bed at 4:45 and my water broke. Becky came up and we were out the door at 5:00. We drove really fast and by Farr West I was very uncomfortable (to say the least) by 31st street I was ready to push. Coby's yelling (and swearing) made Beck stay put till we pulled up to the hospital door. Luckily it was a shift change and some nurses were in the parking lot and helped me out of the car and into a wheel chair. The rest is like a movie, the nurses running through the halls with a wheelchair and me screaming at the top of my lungs. When I got on a bed his head was already out and the nurses delivered him, with no help from the drugs :( He was born at 5:31 am at 8 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long.
Here's a picture of us a year ago:
