Random Musings

I am FINALLY getting out of the house. We went to Regina last week and I was excited to wear some normal clothes. And by normal I mean nursing and baby belly friendly, but not the muumuus I've been living in (aka Hugh's t-shirts).  I was excited to try mixing patterns. I LOVE these camo leggings Deena picked up for me this winter. I tried it with a scarf I got last spring that is still one of my favourites. I also got to wear my jean jacket because it was such a nice day. It doesn't quite do up yet, but it didn't have to!

Boone is really started to string some words together. He continues to repeat everything, but now says things like, "me backyard" and "stop, Calder". Our favourite two word string that he says is "come on" - Only Boone turns it into one word, "mon". I love it.

Boone sleeps in a sleep sack. Lately, he has been partying it up in bed. Houdini like, Boone removes the sleep sack (the zipper is safety pinned up). He then puts all 5 of the stuffies he requires to sleep with into the sack. Hugh has had to do a few delicate dances to get Boone back into the sack after he falls asleep!  He only does this at night. He actually falls asleep very well for nap time, strangely enough!

Last week after a bath Calder stood in front of our bathroom mirror and said, "Dad, look at my lumps." He was referring to his big pipes that he was flexing. Calder basically doesn't have an ounce of fat on him, so he has some good definition! LOL

Calder and Boone love to bike ride. Calder enjoys hunting for bottles around town with Hugh (in 2 outings they have collected 81). Boone mostly likes just riding around in the chariot. :-)

A couple of weeks ago, Calder told Hugh "I have math in my head". He loves math and this teacher couldn't be more excited! This weekend he impressed Grandma Fritshaw by asking her how old she was and then calculating her birth year. Mom will be 60 this year, which helped with the subtraction. :-)

Calder has started gymnastics. We got him in a 3 week session at Can-Am. If you live in Saskatoon, I can't say enough about the quality of programming this gym offers. I am picky and my gymnastics sister agrees totally with me after seeing Calder's class last week. He was VERY reluctant to go. In fact the story about his first class is an entire post all on it's own, but once he got to the gym he loved every minute. And that isn't just our impression. Calder couldn't pick a favourite thing he did during the 1.5 hour class, because he said he liked it all.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Look at you pattern mixing like a pro!

  2. Are you feeling better?!?!

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…


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…

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…
