Happy Birthday, Coby!

I can't believe my baby is EIGHT today! He is very excited that he does not have to ride in a booster seat anymore (although I'd rather keep him in one....), but he's not too excited that he is now responsible for putting his own laundry away. It's a fair trade, don't you think?

He has decided he'd rather go out tonight for dinner than have me make him something and thankfully his choices do not include one of those over-prices Japanese steak houses. Although it does include Denny's....blech!

In honor of his birthday, here are some fun facts:

* Coby was born three days before his due date, on my mom's birthday!
* I pushed for three hours before the doc brought out the vacuum. I often wonder why he didn't do that 2 1/2 hours prior?!
* Coby suffered three febrile seizures when he was a baby. The first was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me.
* He started walking at 9 months old...he never really crawled, just cruised!
* He had crowns on his top two front baby teeth.
* His first temper tantrum was on family vacation in NC when he had just turned three. I got it on video!
* He loves to swim.
* He loves video games!
* He loves going to Rita's.
* He eats his mac and cheese with mass quantities of ketchup on top.
* Coby is a wonderful friend and son who loves God and I wouldn't change anything about him!

Tell Coby Happy Birthday for all of us! And let him know that his Mom is "much nicer" than Dillon's mom, because Dillon will be 10 on 9/18, and he still rides in a HBB. :)
