The details

So as many of you know Cason came to us 10 days early! What a blessing. At my Dr.'s appointment on Thursday he checked to see how far along I was and I was already at a four! He told me that I would most likely be havin the baby in the next 24 hours. And sure enough-that night the contractions started. Around eight or so they were coming but very irregular. By midnight I wasn't getting much sleep. By 1:00 they were about 7 minutes apart and by 2:00 they were about 3/4 minutes apart and quite painful. By 2:30 I couldn't take it anymore and so we headed to the hospital. The Dr. checked me and I was at a 7. so they got me all ready and gave me my epidural-so amazing. I highly recommended the epidural for those of you that are curious. From there we waited for my water to break and a couple hours later we learned that Cason was using it for a pillow! But as the Dr. checked me later he ended up breaking it himself and so they all got ready for the baby to come. It was about ten hours of later with 45-50 minutes of pushing and then Cason was here! It was a great delivery and I couldn't be happier with how smoothly it all went. Cason weighed in at 7 lbs. and 7 oz. and 20.5 inches long. He looks just like his Daddy with his ears, nose, chin, and dark curls and has my blue eyes and long hair. He is beautiful and we are so grateful and feel truly blessed to have him in our lives now. Enjoy all the pics! Oh, and I expect lots of comments saying how cute he is! :) Thank you all so much for your love, support, and your prayers.
Here's our first family picture-Here's his cute toes-I love them.
