Lawson Update 4 months

Lawson is really turning into our best baby. Not only did she start sleeping through the night at around 2 months, but her grumpy few hours in the late evening started to disappear at around 3.5 months. She still doesn't go to bed for the night, but at least now she will go down around 7:30 and have a snooze until her last feed between 8:30 and 9:00.

Lawson has also started to have some nice long naps. I LOVE these :-) And I think the boys do too. I get to do way more stuff with them if I don't have to continually help Lawson fall back to sleep. That being said, I often turn on the tv for Boone while I put Lawson down, so he might be sad he doesn't get to watch as much Paw Patrol!

Lawson has started speeding up her feed times. She is now only taking about 15 minutes per feed. This has seriously decreased my time watching t.v., but I am quite happy about it! She also has developed this nasty spitting up habit the last few weeks. She had always spit up. There was never a rhyme or reason to when she did it, but every few feeds she would burp some up. Not any more. Now she THROWS UP after most feeds and she does this multiple times after eating. Honestly, it really can't be called spit up when you can hear a loud splash on the floor when it hits, or when your entire shirt is drenched.

Lawson is starting to smile more easily, but it takes some work to get a giggle.

Lawson has yet to reach and grasp an item. The boys both did it right before they turned 4 months, but as of today, Lawson still hasn't done it. This has kept my purse a bit less full as I don't have to cart around chewy toys for her yet. Lawson definitely loves having her hands in her mouth, so I'm sure it is only a matter of time before she decides she would rather chew on something else.

Lawson's first boat ride was pretty exhausting. She lasted about 30 seconds on the water before she dozed off. We then laid her on the lawn chair when we got back to shore and she had a killer snooze.

Lawson has started rolling both ways! A couple of Fridays ago, I put her in Calder's room while he and Dylan were doing some art. When I came back to check on her a few minutes later she was quite a ways away from where I had set her. Calder nonchalantly says, "Well yeah mom, she rolled there." I needed clarification. "Did you help her? Did she roll from her back to tummy?"  Yep. . . Apparently she rolled all on her own! I cheered and Calder and Dylan looked at me funny. They didn't seem to think it was as big a deal as I did :-)

Happy Tuesday!

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…
