Welcome to the world Sammy Cohen

Frequent readers to my blog will have noticed a sharp decline in my posts recently. This is because Brenda and I are happy to announce our first addition to our family. Samuel Buckley Cohen was born at 3:54pm Eastern, Tuesday January 6th 2009.

From Sammy Cohen Birthday

After 3 days or 62 hours of early-labour, (poor Brenny) and a short 3 and half for the rest, he came into this world one fist above his head like the little superman he is. Weighing in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, he's a good size with long fingers and toes, a decent amount of light brown hair and eyes that have yet to choose a colour.

What was interesting about the whole experience was that after 62+ hours of contractions, Sammy decided to make his transition to actually labour rather quickly. So quickly that by the time Brenda and I clued into the fact we should probably think about going to the Hospital, it already was too late. Lucky our midwife was with us, so little Sammy was born, yup, at home. I can now officially add mid-wife, or mid-husband to to my resume and linkedin profile. I will say I learned a lot more about birth then I had ever expected, but am very happy every worked out so well.

The last few days have been crazy, but I couldn't have asked for anything more. I just registered this morning, Now the hard work begins, teaching my little guy how to program in python. (Just kidding)
