Royal Baby Fever (and a contest) - UPDATED

During my breastfeeding daytime television watching I am constantly bombarded with speculation about when the Royal Baby is going to arrive. Obviously the media is not going to give this girl any space, but I just get a kick out of hearing them saying, "Reports say TODAY is the due date" every second day!

I think it is pretty awesome that the British government changed its law of succession to state that sons and daughters have equal rights to the throne. This means that the baby in Kate's belly will one day sit on the throne.

I thought it might be fun to get in on a bit of the Royal Baby fever and have a contest. If you can guess the correct name to the future heir, I will make a donation to the charity of your choice. My guess is Alexandra and I will be donating to NH research. And if no one gets it right I will just draw a name out of a hat!

Please put your name and the charity of your choice in the comments section. If you are having trouble leaving a comment email me at jmf322(at)gmail(dot)com to have your selection added. Good luck!

Submissions on FB and email:
Jessica - Annabelle or Andrew
Katie - Victoria or George
Wendy - Dianna or George
Hugh - Elizabeth or Edward
Erin - Henry
Bruce - Oliver

Now that it is officially a boy, Abbey is going to add James to her submission and I am going to go put Charles forward as my choice!

There is still time to get in! 


  1. Philip :)

    Hopefully we'll at least know the gender soon!!

    ... Maybe I should wait so that it's narrowed down! ;)

  2. Oh man, it's so fun to see what others think! :)

    (I actually really hope it's George! ;))

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…
