Calder's Second 2nd Birthday

I spent most of Saturday slaving away making cake-pops for the P-A-R-T-Y.  They are very easy to make, just time consuming.  My friend, Heidi first introduced me to these on Valentine's Day and with a little search on the internet and a phone call to her and I was on my way.  I would suggest googling some images of your own if you are interested.  My look very amateur compared to a lot of the ones out there!

The morning was spent drinking coffee (pot after pot!) and visiting.

We took lots of pictures of the kids eating cupcakes, but I think they liked the cake-pops better!

Take a good look at the bottom left hand corner of the picture above containing Lucia (in pink).  Calder was looking at the birthday photos with me on the computer yesterday and kept saying, "Cleo" (our dog).  There weren't any pictures of Cleo from the party and I couldn't figure out what he was talking about.  Finally, I had the brilliant idea to have him point to Cleo and he immediately stuck his finger out and put it directly on the back of his head in that photo.  He thought his mop-top was our dog!!

Calder was a bit concerned that Willis (in green) was helping him open his gift.  I am so glad we got a shot of this.  I can just hear him pleading, "Calder's present"! (yes, he talks in 3rd person)


  1. Great pictures Jordan!
    The cake pops look pretty professional to me!
    Happy Birthday Calder
    Love Aunty Pat

  2. Lovin' your hair nice and long like that. Thanks for the cake pops idea - I'm going to attempt them for Will's 2nd birthday!

    Happy Birthday to your adorable Calder. We should get our curly-haired boys together for a playdate over the summer!

  3. Holy crap, woman. You look GOOD!!!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
