The past few weeks...

If a picture could say a thousand words, Gentry's next few pictures would say it all. It would say how she's been feeling since we brought baby brother Cash home. It's been quite an adjustment for all of us. Gentry has to be right next to me when I'm feeding Cash or holding him. She's been very whiny and demands attention. Cash has been a great baby. He eats and sleeps great. He isn't fussy and likes to be left a lone while sleeping. Now that it's been almost 3 weeks and Gentry isn't as whiny and gives her baby brother kisses.

Going Home!

I have a much bigger smile this time than I did with Gentry. I was very nervous with her and not sure what to do. We both felt like we "kind of" new what to do taking Cash home...

Cash's Arrival

We're excited he's finally here!
Alicia missed the delivery by 3 minutes!

Great Grandpa
Great Grandma
Four generations, the name will live on...

We Welcome with LOVE

Cash Kevin Casper made his arrival on August 7th at 7:16 AM, weighing in at 6 LBS 13 Oz and 19 1/2 inches long. He is such a sweet little baby. So, I was at work that day and was having a lot of back pain and started having cold sweats. I picked up the phone to call Tyson and tell him to keep his phone near because I think he's coming, but I didn't want to cry wolf. So I held off. I did text Alicia and tell her "I think he's coming today!" I left work early and headed to the doctors office for my appointment. He checked me and told me I was dilated to a 1 and I probably still had a good 2 weeks left. I left his office very sad and disappointed. I called Tyson and told him that this little guy was going to stay in until Thanksgiving. I swear he was holding on for dear life. We went about the night as usual. Gentry running the house and making us chase her. We headed to bed and I always go potty before bed. We turned the lights out and off to bed we went. Then I thought..I had to pee again. So, I stood up and my water broke. I was standing there thinking; "maybe I had to pee really bad and just peed my pants... I told Tyson, "I think my water broke." I was still standing in the same spot in the dark. I didn't know what to do. The first thing that crossed my mind was my little princess. She was sound asleep and by this time the next day she would have a little brother. I called my mom and sisters and off they came to my house to watch the Bug. My mom said to call her when I was to a 5 and she would head to the hospital. I went from a 5 to a 10 in 30 minutes. My mom didn't make it. It was 3 pushes and 5 minutes later our little miracle was here.

I also want to thank cute Andrea Carter with AndreaKphotography for coming to the hospital to take these pictures. She does amazing work! Thanks!

Baby Boy Casper...Shower

I want to thank my sisters for such an amazing shower. It was so much fun. It started out as a luncheon with my family and close friends....but then Alicia decided to go all out. We had a candy bar which was so fun. You can build a bag of candy...Yum Yum! I did our little guys room in airplanes, with red, white and blue. On the wall it'll say Born to Fly and look at how cute the cake is. Here are just some of the pictures; I wanted to post them all, but I only picked out some... I love the picture of my belly being measure with yarn because Gentry is right there helping. So cute! I want to thank everyone who came and made my day so much fun.

17 Months

Gentry Jace is 17 months old! Can you believe how big she's getting..? She's so funny! She is brushing her own teeth now. She has 10 and one more cutting through. She only wants her dada, if he's home she wants nothing to do with me. We went grocery shopping and to save time Tyson and I will split up. I was down an aisle with her and Tyson went to grab a few things. He found us and I didn't even see him yet and she kept pointing, yelling dada, dada, dada and waving her arm. It was so funny. She was SO excited that she saw him and didn't want him to not see us. We just love her more than anything.
