Bacon, Egg, and cheese breakfast cups

[caption id="attachment_907" align="aligncenter" width="576" caption="Bacon, Egg, and Cheese breakfast cups"][/caption] Around here, breakfast on Saturday mornings gives us the opportunity to try something new and delicious. I often find myself wanting to get up and make some sort of extravagant meal involving tons of ingredients and steps and something that takes a considerable amount of time to prepare. Then again, I also find that waking up and having a cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal works just as well. (more…)

The lost art of sleeping

[caption id="attachment_901" align="alignright" width="448" caption="6:30 bed time"][/caption] Sleep has quickly become a topic of much discussion around the Turner house. We're to the point where we'll take it any chance we can get. Recently Lane has had some stomach issues that keep him up more than a 3 week old should be. And as everyone knows, when the baby is awake, we're all awake. For now, he's snoozing in his little bed, so mom took this opportunity to grab a little shut-eye as well. I'm sure it'll all work out soon, but for the time being we'll just keep on snoozing on the couch or going to bed at all…

Happy 2 Weeks Lane!

As of tomorrow, our sweet Benjamin Lane will be two weeks old! I can't believe how fast it's going by. I wished and wished for these days, and now I am ready to press the pause button and freeze time for a bit. Our boy has gotten bigger and better in just the two short weeks he's been in the world. First, his belly button fell off! Yay! This means no more sponge baths or folding down the diaper. Just a normal (ish) belly button that's good to go in a big boy tub! Speaking of big boy baths, we have video of his first. Let me just preface that…

Lane’s Arrival

Tuesday, January 3rd, started like any other Tuesday really. School was out and Chase was coming home from his Dad's after spending a long New Year's weekend. We spent the morning hanging out in our pajamas and watching tv. After lunch, I started having a few strong contractions. This was not much different than previous days, where my strong contractions lasted about 20 minutes then subsided. Once they got a bit stronger, and closer to an hour going strong, I texted Ben and called the nurse at my doctor's office. Still not too concerned, I told Ben to take his time coming home and decided maybe I needed to 'relieve…

It’s a boy!

It was quite an adventure yesterday and it all started with a text. [caption id="attachment_869" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="Jess get's to touch Lane for the first time"][/caption] Around 2:45 Jess texted me saying that she was having contractions. This was nothing new since she had been having them off and on for the past week or so. This time however they didn't go away. She had a bath and tried a few different techniques, but the contractions persisted and eventually got worse. We chatted back and forth and she kept me in the loop since I was roughly an hour away at work. When 4:00 rolled around and they were getting…
