Welcome to our blog! We decided to start this blog mostly so we can chronicle our fast changing life. Once we had our son, Cooper we realized how quickly time goes by and we want to remember all the the little things that make up our daily life. Also, we have many family members and friends who live far away from us and we would like them to be able to keep up with what we are up to.
Allow me to introduce us, the Blairs. I am Elena and I am married to Doug. We met in the summer of 2003 working at Rays Boathouse in Seattle, WA. We both feel that we are simply made for each other. I graduated form nursing school in 2005 and worked as an RN in Seattle for one year. Doug graduated from UW, also in 2005 and decided to apply to law school. The year of 2006 is pretty much when our lives began to run on the fast track. Doug was accepted to University of New Mexico law school so we moved to Albuquerque in June of '06. We had a beautiful New Mexican wedding on July 15, 2006, I started a new job at UNM hospital in the Newborn ICU, Doug started Law school , we bought a house, and we became pregnant with our son, Cooper! What a year! Cooper was born August 5, 2007 and even though we had just turned our lives upside down, Coopers birth was what really spun our heads. We were re-defined on that day as Mommy and Daddy. Cooper is now 15 months old and he is such a joy!
We plan on posting pics and perhaps videos here and simply writing about what goes on in our lives! Enjoy and welcome!
