Odds and Ends

I had my nap yesterday after my treatment. An hour and a half of bliss. Unfortunately, it didn't cure my headache. It is 8:12 pm on Thursday and I still have one. My hematologist said that the headaches from the treatment could last 2 to 3 days. Here's hoping mine is gone tomorrow morning. I hate taking Tylenol when I am pregnant, but I didn't have any choice at work today. I wouldn't have been able to function without it.

We were getting ready for bed tonight and Hugh pointed out my belly to Calder. Calder's first words, "mine is bigger." Right now Calder is bigger and taller than anyone (including Hugh :-). Calder also is quick to point out he has more monster trucks, more toys, or more food on his plate than anyone. None of this is true (well, maybe the monster trucks - he is seriously spoiled and obsessed), but just so you know, Calder will try to one up you on ANYTHING!  I will definitely be getting a picture of our naked bellies together. It was seriously so cute when he was pushing his out and jamming it into my belly!

Tonight I asked Calder if he knew what month his birthday was. I noticed his day home provider has a cool chart in her basement with all the kids names under their respective birthday months. He didn't know, but when I told him it was in March he said, "Right when the baby is born." I was pretty pumped, because the last conversation we had about it was the one I posted on my blog!

I told Calder that the baby is supposed to be here on March 5th and that his birthday is March 8th. We counted the days between the dates and he said, "I hope the baby doesn't die." At the same time, Hugh and I both said, "Me too."

I am completely looking forward to this weekend. We are going to spend some time outdoors with family. Fall is Hugh's favorite season and when I walked to pick up Calder after school today, I actually toyed with the idea that maybe it is mine too!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Sorry to hear about the headaches:( NO FUN.

    Autumn is DEFINITELY my favourite season. IT was one of my favourite things about living out east, because Fall would last a long time and the colours were awesome. Still love it here but wish it were longer...

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…
