The Kidlets

Common phrases Boone says: "No thanks. I'm good." and "You. Time out. Over there." The first one he says almost every single time he says no to something. It is awesome. For a while this summer he shortened it to "I'm good."  This led to some seriously confusing conversations, because it just sound like a blur and it was a while before we could figure out what was going on!  As for the second phrase, we give time outs in our house and because we hand them out to Calder and Boone they feel the need to hand them out to each other, Hugh, myself, and occasionally even Lawson! Calder also says "Time out. Over there."  Boone is a bit of a copy cat when it comes to Calder.

Getting information about school from Calder is like pulling teeth, but we have gotten a few snippets from him last week. At supper time on Thursday we asked him how he was enjoying sitting by one of his buddies (I knew he was sitting there only because I dropped him off on the first day). He informed us that the seating plan had changed because, "All the girls are WAY to chatty." Upon further investigation it sounded like Calder and his buddy were likely just as chatty! After sharing that conversation with his buddy's mom this week she told us that her son was pumped at the change because he was sitting between two girls! Too cute :-)  On the way home from school on Tuesday Calder informed me "It takes three days to get married." Apparently his teacher is getting married later this fall and will be gone from work three days and miraculously come back married!
Lawson is crawling. . . FORWARD. Yes you read that right. For almost the first couple weeks of her crawling, she was only able to move backwards. All three of the kids crawled within a week of each other. Kind of neat.  Lawson also has two teeth. The first one showed right at the start of September and the second one appeared early this week. I can't wait for the top ones to come in. Those first teeth look so funny in kids' mouths.  Lawson is really enjoying her baths. Last night she was a splashing machine. She is a lot like Boone when it comes to her love of the water!

Have a great weekend!

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…
