Calder was pretty pumped to show us this gingerbread man he decorated last week at school. Even proclaiming, "Isn't he crazy, Mom?!" I was a bit tongue tied as I couldn't take my eyes off the gingerbread man's right leg and didn't respond. I was supposed to be looking up to the gingerbread man's "crazy" mouth. Eventually, Calder pointed out the BANDAID on the the man's right leg. According to Calder the "crazy" gingerbread man missed his owie (the dot) and put the sticky part of the bandaid right on top of it.
Rosie is back! She didn't come until the second week in December. Last year she came on December 1 and it felt like she was around too long! In the week before she arrived, Calder kept speculating when she was coming and if it would be Rosie coming back or some other elf. Rosie has been up to no good and even spent two days up in our chandelier. Calder wasn't sure if she got stuck or was just really tired and spent an extra day there! Boone has been enjoying Rosie as well and on the weekend actually found Rosie before Calder did one of the mornings!
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…
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…
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…
