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…

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…

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…

Only a few more weeks!

We are literally counting down the weeks and before we know it, it'll be days. Lane is moving around quite a but these days, he seems to be most active when SJ is singing Adele. Maybe we'll have a little singer on our hands. Not sure if he's into Skrillex yet, but we'll see. So now we just have about 7 more weeks until there is this tiny baby in the house. Jess has had the 'joy' of carrying him around for the past several months and I can't wait to share in on that. We got some family/maternity pictures done and it'll be fun to look back on those…

Lane’s Shower!

Somehow I am already 31 weeks! Where has the time gone?? The holidays will be here soon and I am so ready to enjoy some great food, family, and finish getting ready for little Lane's arrival. Of course I'm already prepared....just need a few last minute things. We are already pretty stocked, thanks to an awesome baby shower thrown by my bff Heather this weekend. It was co-ed and ended with chili and football. I need to get some final shots of the nursery posted. I went with an owl theme and it's turning out SO cute. I've been feeling really, really great lately and I can't wait to meet…

It’s the little things

Like little tiny toes and fingers and a yawn, that make it all worth it. Last Friday we went for our first official sonogram. It was the first time we got to see Jr. BLT really moving around. We got to see all his little baby parts and they were all perfect. For me, all I could do was sit there in awe. Here was this little baby, growing inside of my wife. He was so wonderful. He seemed in bliss and just happy to be right where he was. I wanted to hold him, but was ok with him being tucked away safely for the next few months. Below…

Baby Lane..’aka’ Mommy’s Zoloft.

Ok, so I'm not taking Zoloft. But this baby, and this life, make me feel like I am. Nothing better than feeling like you are flying high on Zoloft without actually being medicated, huh? This weekend has helped bring a feeling of zen over me. When these waves come, I just want to soak them in like a sponge and save them in a reserve tank to use when I have a shitty day. Today, my zen overflows. The weekend started with a sonogram of Benjamin Lane. How a baby can be cute in black and white is beyond me, but his little yawns and his little fingers and toes…

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…

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…

Only a few more weeks!

We are literally counting down the weeks and before we know it, it'll be days. Lane is moving around quite a but these days, he seems to be most active when SJ is singing Adele. Maybe we'll have a little singer on our hands. Not sure if he's into Skrillex yet, but we'll see. So now we just have about 7 more weeks until there is this tiny baby in the house. Jess has had the 'joy' of carrying him around for the past several months and I can't wait to share in on that. We got some family/maternity pictures done and it'll be fun to look back on those…

Lane’s Shower!

Somehow I am already 31 weeks! Where has the time gone?? The holidays will be here soon and I am so ready to enjoy some great food, family, and finish getting ready for little Lane's arrival. Of course I'm already prepared....just need a few last minute things. We are already pretty stocked, thanks to an awesome baby shower thrown by my bff Heather this weekend. It was co-ed and ended with chili and football. I need to get some final shots of the nursery posted. I went with an owl theme and it's turning out SO cute. I've been feeling really, really great lately and I can't wait to meet…

It’s the little things

Like little tiny toes and fingers and a yawn, that make it all worth it. Last Friday we went for our first official sonogram. It was the first time we got to see Jr. BLT really moving around. We got to see all his little baby parts and they were all perfect. For me, all I could do was sit there in awe. Here was this little baby, growing inside of my wife. He was so wonderful. He seemed in bliss and just happy to be right where he was. I wanted to hold him, but was ok with him being tucked away safely for the next few months. Below…

Baby Lane..’aka’ Mommy’s Zoloft.

Ok, so I'm not taking Zoloft. But this baby, and this life, make me feel like I am. Nothing better than feeling like you are flying high on Zoloft without actually being medicated, huh? This weekend has helped bring a feeling of zen over me. When these waves come, I just want to soak them in like a sponge and save them in a reserve tank to use when I have a shitty day. Today, my zen overflows. The weekend started with a sonogram of Benjamin Lane. How a baby can be cute in black and white is beyond me, but his little yawns and his little fingers and toes…

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…
