7/06/2007


Two or three hours after I posted on Thursday Allyson started having contractions. At 10:17 on Friday morning Corky Jr was born. For some reason the nurses and Allyson are insisting on calling him Max (Not short for anything). Of course I call him Corky Jr.

On a more serious note, the baby was born with a slight fever and has a little bit of an infection so we'll be staying at the hospital for a little while longer. The doctor said that Max is doing really good and is off of his IV and his temperature and respiration have all stabilized.

This kid is so amazing! Usually bullets bounce off my chest and I just laugh, but for some strange reason which I can't explain, I've been nothing but a blubbering fool these past two days. I haven't been this emotional since Paramount announced the release of Star Trek on DVD.

I'll touch base with everyone very soon.

My eyes are brimming with tears. Max is beautiful. Just perfect. I couldn't be happier for you and Allyson. Please post pictures whenever you can, cause you know it's all about him now.

I am so, so happy for the both of you, congratulations!

He is gorgeous and already such a handsome young man!

And remember, sleep when he sleeps!

Forget about the dishes and the toilets for a little bit, and savor those precious newborn weeks when you are all still getting to know each other.

Again, this is wonderful news and I hope that you all are home ASAP.

RockDog said...

Terri said...

dang I should have bet something on this! I almost left you a comment before I went out of town that said "don't have that baby before I get back from vacation!" and look what you went and did (or well, what Allyson went and did, or well, really what Corky Jr. went and did). He is ADORABLE!!! Thanks for posting the pictures and enjoy your time off work and with that precious little baby boy! Oh I miss those days!

eric313 said...

Man, that's great! My neice was a thursday (thanksgiving) baby. Sister ate three plates full and we were joking that she was being born one way or another that night!

It happened just like that!

No kids for me, though. I cherish my familly and need nothing to get in the way of me finishing my masters.

But total congrats to you on the baby. Crack a case or two and celebrate everything new--I bet that's already going on.
Later

eric313 said...

And best of luck with all health for everyone involved.

Congratulations to Corky Senior and lovely Allyson. Corky Junior is mighty handsome. Thank you for the wonderful pictures. Aww, he is so cute. Take care and rest when you get the chance. I am looking forward to hearing more about the little one.

eric said...

that's a pretty good looking kid you've got there. and not all babies are all that good looking.

TheBirdman33 said...

I'm sure all your REAL FRIENDS dropped whatever they were doing and came to visit...right?

Modern Mommy said...

Corky! He is so beautiful! Let's be honest, not every baby is. but this kid is so amazing. congrats daddy!

Sunshine said...

What a dolly....I wish I could smell him, I love new baby smell. And kiss his little cute cheeks.

Your bestest post ever!

Welcome to Max! Captain Kirk, no doubt, had a distant cousin named Max.

Biddie said...

OMG! He really is gorgeous. Truly. Incredibly.
I hope that Max and Allyson are feeling better. I am SO glad that you went with Max and not Cletus...and, I didn't even tell anyone that I knew his name..except Heidi, and KC...That was a huge deal, you know. I am a loud mouth, after all.
Good job, Dad, and Mom.
Big hugs.
xxxx

Laurasia said...

Oh my Corky, he's beautiful. I mean, really. Sometimes there are ugly babies and you feel OBLIGATED to tell people how adorable they are (not me, I just nod and smile) but I couldn't even fake the funk here.

He is probably one of the prettiest babies I've seen this year. Seriously. Congratulations to you and Allyson, babe.

Now the fun REALLY starts!!

Joy T. said...

Jenny! said...

He is absolutely beautiful...and handsome...takes after daddy already! He looks really healthy! Glad he's off the IV...so so so happy for you! Congrats to your wife too!

Tink said...

Ah! I missed it! Not like I was actually going to be there or anything. But I was diligently waiting for this post and then.... *Wham* I fell off the radar. Your boy is SO beautiful Cork. Seriously.

Metal Mark said...

Congratulations!
I normally list the top five days of my life as these.
-When the Broncos won Super Bowl 32
-When the Broncos won Super Bowl 33
-When I got married.
-When Metalboy was born.
-When Metalgirl was born.

Although not necessarily in that order.

He is a wonder to behold, mon capitan. Truly. I look forward to the day when we get our little tykes together for the first time.

Until then, I can only agree with the smart folks above and recommend to you to cherish this time, as hectic as it is sure to become. You will never again bring home your first child for the first time. Make the most of it.
