Hi, Hoppers Fans, it’s Greg. You might have noticed that I’ve been absent from the blog for a while. You may remember back in April that I mentioned I took a new job and that my wife and I were expecting our first child in August. I also introduced everyone to our new corespondent, Jordan Stowe. Jordan’s been doing an amazing job with the blog, and I’m truly grateful for his stepping up to the plate to keep it going, with great insight on the games and some great pictures to boot.
So, remember when I said we were expecting our baby in August? Well, surprise! She came early. Welcome to the world, Aurora Julianna Fairlie Cohoon! Born Tuesday, May 29 at 2:57am in an epic unattended delivery. Seriously. Mommy and I were at the hospital, in a room by ourselves while the medical professionals were giving us some alone time since the baby was still not expected for several hours. Then, all of the sudden, there was a baby in the room! After hitting the emergency call button, the room was full of hospital staff who did a great job of taking care of everything. I’m telling everyone that my daughter wanted a little alone time with Mommy and Daddy before finding herself surrounded by medical professionals for weeks on end. She got a good 15-20 seconds before being set upon by the hospital staff. And it was awesome.
Mom and baby are doing well. We’re expecting Rorie to have an extended stay in the NICU. We continue to cherish your prayers in the coming weeks. 🙂
