Kohnen and Naholle's Birth Story
While the "Braxton-hicks" contractions got longer and more intense, I asked my husband to drive me to the hospital, where I found out they were real contractions and that I would have my twins that night.
I agonized for six and a half hours until I could get an epidural. I pushed for almost an entire hour after that. Even though I had gotten the epidural, it still hurt a lot, due to my low pain tolerance.
I gave birth to my first son at 10:51 pm, and then my second son at 10:53 pm (which I round to 10:52 for both). I delivered the placenta as quick I possibly could while the nurses cleaned up my new babies.
When I finally got to hold my clean, unslimy sons, I instantly felt like a mommy. They were barely 10 minutes old and they where the hugest impact in my life to date; my warm little bundles of joy. I think my husband Kirk felt the same way; he even cried when he held his little boys. They already looked so much like him, with the same hazel eyes and the family nose.
My husband and I wanted unique names for our sons. We named the first Kohnen (Cone-nan) Michael and the younger one Naholle (Nah-hole-ie) Kirk (Grimm is both of their last names). The first visitor was my older sister and his older brother (who where married 7 years before us) and our niece. Then came his mother, my parents, and two of my other sisters.We called everyone else and they all congratulated us, especially his side of the family.
In his side of the family, almost all of the males have had 2 sons. His grandfather had his father and uncle, his uncle had his 2 male cousins, his father had his older brother and him. Now Kohnen and Naholle are the newest additions to the Grimm legacy, and I'm proud to have brought them into the world.
