My little Leprechaun

In my mind, today is Cason's birthday. Yes, he was born on November 17th, 9 months from this date, but this date, March 17, St. Patrick's Day, this is the one where he was born in my dreams. This date was the date I found out he was a possibility. And even though I spent the next nine months biting my nails, closing my eyes to shut out the ever present fear and crying, lots of that, I still, at some point almost every day would allow myself to hope, that maybe, just maybe, a live baby was coming.

And he did.

And we named him Cason Patrick, because on March 17th, he, my very own little leprechaun, planted a tiny fleck of hope in my oh so weary heart, enough to begin to chase the snakes that had taken up residence there away and for the first time in months I began to dare to imagine that I really didn't know how the whole story was going to end. And that maybe, just maybe, a new chapter was beginning.
And as luck would have it, I did indeed, catch me a leprechaun.

I always associate this day with him, too. Not sure why. Was this the date of your bfp?

What a sweet, happy little boy!

It was the 24th of this month for me. Still can't believe we managed to get our "rainbows" on the same day exactly one year apart.
Cason is so very yummy.

He is so delicious.

I know it is a little strange, but I know all the days of conception for my children and the days I found out I was pregnant. I love that Patrick found his way into Cason's name because of it. xo

Omigosh, he is adorable. And he looks (in this photo anyway) an awful lot like my own little leprechaun.
