Two weeks and counting…

Our little son, Jasper Casey, was born over two weeks ago on Friday, February 20. He weighed 7 lbs 10 ounces and measured 20.5 inches. He is perfect!

Since that day I’ve learned a lot, but the only constant is that every single cliché about parenting and motherhood is true.

Nothing anybody said could have prepared me for the love I’d feel for this little man. And watching Kelly as the proud papa? Brings tears to my eyes.

These two weeks have gone by in a blur of love, exhaustion, and recovery. They’ve been nothing short of amazing.

We’re trying to cherish every moment, from his little stretches and funny faces to the first time he peed all over Kelly, to Harold kissing his ears every time he has a chance, even to his middle of the night cries.

I’m going to keep this short since my brain isn’t functioning too well right now.

I plan to post my third trimester fitness post sometime soon. And I’d like to write a few about post-partum fitness once I try to cross that bridge. In the meantime, I’ve only gone on three walks in two weeks and am just trying to soak up as much newborn love as possible!

Thanks to my talented sister, Carla Marie Photography, for the amazing keepsake photos. 

Thanks to everyone on Instagram for the love, and for not unfollowing me with all my baby pictures!

  2. He’s precious! I love the picture of Jasper stretching, and the picture of Kelly kissing him reminds me of how much I loved watching Bill hold and play with our sons when they were tiny. Enjoy every second of your little bundle of joy!

  3. He is SO beautiful, and I love the name! Congrats to you, Kelly and Harold!!!

  4. Awwww—a HUGE congrats to you all! What a sweet little addition. I know how exhausted and yet elated you are right now. It’s kind of surreal (especially when sleep deprived) isn’t it? But in all the best ways. Enjoy this special time! (BTW–my firstborn, a son, is Feb. 19–good things come in Feb!)

  13. Ahhhh, he is SO SO SO perfect. I feel like I have a million questions for you (but I’ll spare your comment wall the overload and fire away an email). The peeing part made me laugh because my step-brother in law was just telling me a story about his first experiencing with changing a diaper and getting squirted. Haha, it must happen often. ☺
