Great news cousins.
Allison Bozeman Lawhon and spouse Ben were in Beaver Creek Colorado for a wedding rehersal dinner Friday night. Little did they know that expected arrival Cullin Riley Lawhon would not honor their plan for natural childbirth in Boulder on September 23rd. Allison woke Ben at 2am on Saturday saying "We have to get to Boulder NOW!!
They made it as far as Breckenridge/Dillon at about 3:30AM. Ben dialed 911 and found the nearest hospital avoiding having to deliver his own son.
Cullin Riley Lawhon arrived September 2, 2006 at 5:57 AM in Summit County, Colorado (Breckenridge/Frisco)He is 5 lbs 4 oz and 19 inches long, very strong and has quite the set of vocal chords.
Cullin evidently wanted to be on hand for the Tennessee Vols victory over California. His blood runs orange. His arrival was on the same date that Ben's father passed 20 years ago.
Mother and baby were transported by ambulance to Denver Children's hospital where there is a NIC unit for early arrivals. Both are doing great and I am a proud grandfather at last.
