Falling in Love

Where have I been?

Falling in love.

Where has Sweet Husband been?

Falling in love, too.
We welcome to The Couch
Jack Camden Turner,
who came early into this world after a New Year's Day
on January 2nd, 2010 - a Blue Moon baby.

Since then, we've been delighted, exhausted, joyous, and weary.
And boy, is this kid hungry.
He came wailing into the world at 8 lb, 1 oz.
At his two week checkup, he weighed in at 8 lb, 15 oz.

He has long fingers and toes.
His hair is short in front and long in back.
He likes to be sung "Rock the Boat" and enjoys Oldies.
He does NOT like collard greens.
He loves to cuddle, though.

Oh, congratulations to the entire happy family! We have been anxiously awaiting word of Jack's arrival.

[Try turnip greens. Though beet greens are my personal favorite, they are hard to come by in January.]

Short in front and long in back!?! That spells Mullet, Bitty! Just ask Jonny circa 1993.

So proud of you. What a mama!
