Introducing... Cohen Dustin Vohs!



On Tuesday the 10th Dustin and I found ourselves leaving the hospital empty handed because of a false alarm! The doctor perscribed some pain medicine and warned me I could continue having contractions for days before our little guy would make an apperance! So I went home and three days later on the 13th at 4am we were back on the 5th floor of Utah Valley Regional Medical center! I was expecting to hear...sorry go home...but instead I had made a little bit of progress and was told we could stay. Shortly after my epidural we called family and told them it was time! Nicole my sister in-law (who was ready to go home that day after an already extended stay due to Maddix's birth) when hearing we were in the hospital exclaimed "Shut Up"! and a few hours later it was time to push! Pushing is exactly what I did for 3 hours! Cohen decided to be dramatic and came with his head facing the wrong way and the cord tightly around his neck! I guess he wanted to see more then the hospital floor!Since the cord was around his neck they wanted to make sure his lungs were okay. I kissed baby hi and good bye and the baby made a trip to the NICU. As soon as they were about to poke him he let out a scream and turned pink! I quess threats work on him! Although he was early he is happy and healthy! I am feeling better more and more each day! Baby Cohen was born at 12:42 p.m. and weighed 7 pounds and 6 ounces, he is 18 and 1/2 inches long and looks exactly like daddy! He is so handsome! We love being parents and are loving life more than words can describe!
