Lane’s first day of school! EEK!

[caption id="attachment_1348" align="alignleft" width="528"] Our little boy's all grown up![/caption] It seems like only yesterday we were teaching this little guy to roll over. Then we blinked and he was walking. Now he's climbing on top of the tables, saying words, swimming (sort of), and in school! Wait... what? He's in school?! Yep, we dropped off our little baby for his first day of "big boy school" today! Whoa! Its so very hard to believe that its been 18 months already. He seems so little, yet so very big! Time has flown by and our wings have ever expanded to support Jr. BLT, but its time for him to branch…

5th Grade Dance

We had such a fun time! It was great to see these kids dance and sing and enjoy one of their last nights together. I can't believe in a few short weeks I'll have a middle school child. How handsome is my boy?!

Happy Birthday!!!

We celebrating surviving one year with our adorable BLT by having a small party here at the new house. It was simple, everyone had a great time, and our big boy was happy. It was a perfect day. Ben will add video to this post soon, but here's a pic of the birthday boy eating yummy cake!

Next level productivity

Whether it was the fact that we hadn't done shit all week or it was some sort of voodoo magic in the air, but man we knocked it out today! This morning BLT was all trying to kick things off as if it were any other day by waking up at 5am. No one wants to be up at that hour on a Saturday. We quickly squashed that by taking him over to my mom's house. She agreed to watch him for the morning so we could get some stuff done around the house for a change. The goal was lofty, but we were up for a challenge. Ever since moving…

Decorating at the Turner’s – 2k12

[caption id="attachment_1153" align="aligncenter" width="660"] At the tree farm![/caption] Well, we are not ones to dillydally when it comes to getting stuff unpacked and decorated around the house and this year would be no exception. So despite having only been in this house ONE week, we decided it would be a good idea to go round up a 8+ foot tall tree and decorate that mug with as many lights and ornaments as we could muster. We headed off to our local tree farm where Chase picked out the perfect tree and helped me cut it down. Mom and Lane sat by taking cute pics of and enjoying the weather. Once…

P90x: 40+ days

This post is about 10 days over due. Here's my 30 day pic for P90x. [caption id="attachment_1022" align="aligncenter" width="590" caption="P90x - Day 30"][/caption] As you can see, I have achieved results! On day 30 I had more definition in my arms, legs, back, shoulders, stomach, and smile. I was feeling fantastic and wanted more. This however was short lived. Shortly after my day 30 awesomeness I departed for a 3 day field trip for Chase's PC class. It's hard enough doing P90x at home, but it's impossible to do any sort of exercise while tending to a gaggle of 4th/5th graders and walking around learning about maritime forests and such. So…

The easy part

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="384" caption="Morning "coffee""][/caption] No one ever said raising or taking care of a baby was easy. Well, I'm sure someone has said that, but at least no one I've ever talked to. However, over the past week or so things around the house have just kinda fallen into place. Lane is sleeping 5-7 hours each night. Jess and I are getting back into a routine of sorts, Chase is really taking on the role of a big brother with flying colors, and things are just good. Certainly we have our days or nights when all we want to do is sleep or finish that load of laundry…

Happy One Month, Benjamin Lane!

[caption id="attachment_914" align="aligncenter" width="448" caption="Benjamin Lane - 1 month"][/caption] Over the past month I have learned a lot of interesting and fascinating things. Babies can go from zero to 90 in a matter of seconds. One moment Lane will be laying peacefully asleep and the next he'll be crying his head off... only to be cooing and giggling a few seconds later. Poops come in all colors, smells, and can sneak up on you at any time of the day. It really doesn't matter when Lane had eaten, when he's ready to poop he will. The sneaky thing is, some times it's just a fart that sounds and smells like…

Decorating at the Turner’s – 2k12

[caption id="attachment_1153" align="aligncenter" width="660"] At the tree farm![/caption] Well, we are not ones to dillydally when it comes to getting stuff unpacked and decorated around the house and this year would be no exception. So despite having only been in this house ONE week, we decided it would be a good idea to go round up a 8+ foot tall tree and decorate that mug with as many lights and ornaments as we could muster. We headed off to our local tree farm where Chase picked out the perfect tree and helped me cut it down. Mom and Lane sat by taking cute pics of and enjoying the weather. Once…

P90x: 40+ days

This post is about 10 days over due. Here's my 30 day pic for P90x. [caption id="attachment_1022" align="aligncenter" width="590" caption="P90x - Day 30"][/caption] As you can see, I have achieved results! On day 30 I had more definition in my arms, legs, back, shoulders, stomach, and smile. I was feeling fantastic and wanted more. This however was short lived. Shortly after my day 30 awesomeness I departed for a 3 day field trip for Chase's PC class. It's hard enough doing P90x at home, but it's impossible to do any sort of exercise while tending to a gaggle of 4th/5th graders and walking around learning about maritime forests and such. So…

[caption id="attachment_938" align="aligncenter" width="554" caption="Running for my life!"][/caption] One week ago, ran for my life. Well, I don't think I was ever in any actual danger, but there were times when it sure felt like I was ready to die. (more…)

The easy part

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="384" caption="Morning "coffee""][/caption] No one ever said raising or taking care of a baby was easy. Well, I'm sure someone has said that, but at least no one I've ever talked to. However, over the past week or so things around the house have just kinda fallen into place. Lane is sleeping 5-7 hours each night. Jess and I are getting back into a routine of sorts, Chase is really taking on the role of a big brother with flying colors, and things are just good. Certainly we have our days or nights when all we want to do is sleep or finish that load of laundry…

Happy One Month, Benjamin Lane!

[caption id="attachment_914" align="aligncenter" width="448" caption="Benjamin Lane - 1 month"][/caption] Over the past month I have learned a lot of interesting and fascinating things. Babies can go from zero to 90 in a matter of seconds. One moment Lane will be laying peacefully asleep and the next he'll be crying his head off... only to be cooing and giggling a few seconds later. Poops come in all colors, smells, and can sneak up on you at any time of the day. It really doesn't matter when Lane had eaten, when he's ready to poop he will. The sneaky thing is, some times it's just a fart that sounds and smells like…

Lane’s first day of school! EEK!

[caption id="attachment_1348" align="alignleft" width="528"] Our little boy's all grown up![/caption] It seems like only yesterday we were teaching this little guy to roll over. Then we blinked and he was walking. Now he's climbing on top of the tables, saying words, swimming (sort of), and in school! Wait... what? He's in school?! Yep, we dropped off our little baby for his first day of "big boy school" today! Whoa! Its so very hard to believe that its been 18 months already. He seems so little, yet so very big! Time has flown by and our wings have ever expanded to support Jr. BLT, but its time for him to branch…

5th Grade Dance

We had such a fun time! It was great to see these kids dance and sing and enjoy one of their last nights together. I can't believe in a few short weeks I'll have a middle school child. How handsome is my boy?!

Happy Birthday!!!

We celebrating surviving one year with our adorable BLT by having a small party here at the new house. It was simple, everyone had a great time, and our big boy was happy. It was a perfect day. Ben will add video to this post soon, but here's a pic of the birthday boy eating yummy cake!

Next level productivity

Whether it was the fact that we hadn't done shit all week or it was some sort of voodoo magic in the air, but man we knocked it out today! This morning BLT was all trying to kick things off as if it were any other day by waking up at 5am. No one wants to be up at that hour on a Saturday. We quickly squashed that by taking him over to my mom's house. She agreed to watch him for the morning so we could get some stuff done around the house for a change. The goal was lofty, but we were up for a challenge. Ever since moving…
