People told us that the days would be long and the years would be short, but I didn’t know that I would feel that way already at 10 weeks. I look at Jasper now, and she’s already such a different baby from when she was born. She’s smiling, recognizing faces, showing interest in objects and sounds, and has more than doubled in size!
It seems like every week, she does something new, and even though the milestones are minuscule, the novice of every single one is exciting, and reminds us to savour every moment because it’s already going by fast. The so-called “4th trimester” has been an intense shared experience for Sam and I. Some days it feels like there’s barely a moment to breathe and take it all in, so before it becomes a distant memory, I want to document the good, the bad, and the ugly of these early days.
