Dave and Christi Cason: We're the proud parents of 18 beautiful kids, trying for #19. Sharing the goings on of the family, stuff we like and maybe an opinion or two. Yes, we know what causes it and we've gotten REALLY good at it!
10 Boys and 8 Girls (so far).
When you last saw the intrepid Cason bunch, Christi was dealing with a breech baby and prepping to go into the hospital so the doc could attempt to turn him and then induce while he remained head down. One month and 5 days later and our little Vaughn is one month and four days old and we are as happy as can be! He was born at 3:15pm on October 15th at 8lbs and 6oz. A month later and he's gained almost 2lbs, had his circumcision and is eating and pooping like a pro! Truth is, he's doing awesome and we love him so much, it's ridiculous.
This is the little booger. Adorable, ain't he?
So this is the belated birth announcement for Vaughn Robert Dallas Cason. Better late than never...
Here is a link to a local online news story about the birth. Pay no mind to the ridiculously awful comments...we don't.
Was planning a big update before I got to this particular bit of news, but I took Christi in to the doctor today because the baby was breech last time and even though the doc sent her to the hospital and manually turned him, the boy has apparently decided to practice somersaults this last week and is again feet down. Totally breech. Christi's doc is sending us into the hospital again to try and turn this sucker, but this time, when that's done, we'll fire up the pitosin and begin inducing. So it looks like today, (or sometime early tomorrow) will be BABY DAY!! I will be tweeting live as we go with as many pics as she'll let me take. I can't video until afterwards (hospital policy) but when I can, that will go up as well. Pray for us, wish us luck, and we'll see you on the other side!
Well folks, we have finally passed a hurdle that we have been working hard to jump and we have decided to make an official announcement:
We are pregnant with our 17th, wonderful baby!!
As many of you may know, we have been trying to conceive and have had 2 losses. We are at the 11 week mark with no issues, a perfect ultrasound and we have passed the 10 week mark where we lost our other 2. Christi and I had told a few people, some via Facebook and a few in person, but we finally feel comfortable sharing it here in a blog post. In Christi's words:
"11 weeks today 11 weeks today, wooohoooo finally past my last 2 losses at near 10 weeks, first milestone, getting to 6 weeks with no issues, then 8 weeks with a great ultrasound, now past 10 weeks, wooohoooo hope to hear a heartbeat on Thursday 4-11. Woohooooo our 17th child so far is really really on the way God willing."
She has a way with the woooohoooo, that's for sure! This is her 24th pregnancy in total, and at 11 weeks, it looks like this:
Needless to say we are extremely happy to finally be able to share this news! To those of you who already knew and offered congratulations, and those who have offered up prayers when you knew we were trying, we say thanks! We look forward to more good news and updates until the ultimate update, which should be around October 26th.
C'mere sonny, let me show ya' a picture of my grandkid!
So what did you expect? She's adorable! How can we not share photos? Jess has started bringing her by the house more often, and when she goes back to work, we'll get to watch her while mommy and daddy are working...
...time to begin the training BWAH HA HAAAA!
Seriously though, we can't wait to spend more time with her little cuteness. As to her progress, she's doing great! Eating great, all breastfeeding so far, pooping great...everything you'd expect from a 7-1/2 week old little munchkin. Mommy and Daddy seem to be holding up pretty well and we couldn't be prouder.
It had to happen eventually. You tell yourself it's a million years away and then one of your kids makes you eat your words. After all this time, Jessica has gone and made us grandparents!! On February 10th at 6:10 AM, we were gifted with our granddaughter, Jaedyn Rae Tyler. She was 6 lbs. 8 oz. and 19 3/4 in. at birth. She is beautiful as you can clearly see. She takes after her Mee-Maw like that.
Needless to say we are quite proud of our Jessica and the job she did. Her labor was about 18 hours and she pushed little Jaedyn out in about 20 minutes! Pretty good for a first timer. Christi wasn't sure what she would do when we got to the hospital to see her, but I did. Christi cried like a baby the first time she held her. She feels a special connection with little Jaedyn right away, she said it was overwhelming and amazing at the same time and is so happy to be a grandma! We can not wait to spoil her rotten ad send her home. :)
