Newborn No More

Today Asher is two months old. How quickly the days fly by! He is a newborn no more ~ that’s what happens when you blink. I took him to Grandpapa’s office for his first appointment and first shots. What a little trooper; hardly a whimper! At 12 pounds and 23 1/2 inches, he is longer and lighter than his big brother was, but not by a lot. These two boys are still incredibly similar, and it makes life with them both incredibly fun.

Asher is starting to smile and coo now, although it still isn’t predictable. I try over and over to capture such moments on camera but they are fleeting. And I want to enjoy those moments without always having to look at them through my Canon lens. ;) But I do take photos and videos to help me remember these moments in the future. There are so many many moments that I just want to bottle up and keep forever. One of my friends wrote on her blog not long ago that she wanted to stick her children in the freezer so they would simply stay the way they are. 🙂 And I hear her heart!

Just over two months ago, this was our reality (except in reality my belly was covered in bruises…):

Just over one month ago, this was:

And now, this is:

And so we shout from the rooftops, thank You God for sending us such sweetness!!

  1. You made my day 🙂
    I’m a huge fan of belly/maternity photos and baby photos. If I could do anything for the rest of my life, it would be photographing those two things.
    Asher really has a lot of personality and it shines through in the photos. Did your brother take those? He did an excellent job; what precious keepsakes those are.
    Hard to believe that he is 2 months already… time flies when you’re enjoying life.
