The Baby Whisperer

So today I went with Grant and Melissa to visit Jessi, Ashley, and to greet their newborn son, Gaines, at Cox South. I've been so excited for the Groves and the arrival of this little guy and I couldn't wait to meet him. Knowing full well that the rest of the CrossFit Springfield family has been on pins and needles waiting to see pictures, I asked Jessi if I could take a couple of pics of their bundle of joy with my iphone. She said it was cool so I busted out the camera and right as I hit the button to take the picture here's what Gaines gives me:

It's just the perfect moment captured, right? He looks so sweet and peaceful...Here's the craziest thing: As I stood in the Grove's hospital room, staring at the image on my phone of this beautiful little miracle I couldn't help but be reminded of one of the first pictures we ever got of our own beautiful little miracle, Vincent, 2 and half years ago (don't forget the half, dang it - Vin gets pissed when you forget the half):

Now if I could only learn how to get kids to obey me as well I can get'em to smile...THAT would be really impressive :)

As for my ongoing workout adventures, today I did the CFS WOD of 2-2-2-2-2-2-2 Overhead Squat and 21-15-9 OHS @ 95lb and Ring Rows. My best 2RM OHS was 265lb and my time on the OHS/Ring Row couplet was 3:11.

  1. That is so sweet! And I love both of their names! And since I have NO clue about the CrossFit program reading your "stats" just makes me feel like I'm reading a foreign language! Lol!
