Last Monday (June 16) Cahlan and I went on date, to see the Incredible Hulk, well in the middle of the movie I started having really bad contractions. After the movie we were supposed to go to dinner at Carraba's our (one of our favorite restaurants) but Cahlan thought we should go to the hospital but man I really wanted my Sirloin Marsala. So we went to eat. We sat down and ordered our food. The waitress asked when I was due and I told her maybe tonight (haha) . Before our food even got to the table I decided that we needed to go to the hospital, but Carraba's is awesome and comped us the meal and even packed our food to go for us. So I was admitted into the hospital at 9 pm and Cohen Maxwell Sharp made his entrance into the world at 11:26 that night.
While in the hospital Cohen had to spend all of his time in the NICU. When he was born one of his lungs didn't expand like it was supposed to so he was having trouble breathing. They gave him some hormones to help him out and they worked, but he had to be monitored for the rest of his stay. Now he's home and doing beautifully, and he does have very, very strong lungs now.
I must say that for me the second baby was such an easier delivery in fact the doctor was making jokes while I was pushing and I kept on losing my breath and laughing (this is why I get epidurals) . I pushed for about 5 minutes and he was here, all 7 lbs 11 oz and 19 1/2 inches of him.
He is so cute and looks just like Cahlan's grandpa. We love him, although Emmy is taking a little longer to get used to him. Hopefully she gets adjusted soon.

Yea for drugs!
