Who Knew?

 Who knew that those onesies with the folded neckline like Lawson is wearing above are designed to open up wide enough so you can slip them off over their hips if they have a poop explosion?  I didn't, but my friend, Heidi's, husband did. We were both wishing he had shared this with us when we had our first kid, rather than wait until we had our 3rd - 3rd at home for me!

Who knew Q-tips were good booger pickers? I didn't. My friend Danielle was using them to grab some visible boogers out of her son's nose. I thought it was brilliant and a bit disappointed in myself that I hadn't thought of it. I hate visible boogers, eye sleep and ear wax. My kids will attest to my constant picking. Lucky for Lawson, my days of trying to put my fat fingers into her tiny nose are done.
Who knew you could do a baby book online? I didn't. My sister, Jes, was wanting a 2015 way to organize her son's milestones and found a great one. OMG. I haven't done a NEW AUNTIE post to welcome her baby. This is some serious neglect. Send me your best shot of Nash, Jes. I'm on it.  Jes found My Own Little Story. It is really cool. You pick the specific pages you want to include (all the ones from my hard copy from Chapters are on the website). You can even pick special holidays and functions to include. The best part is that you can upload photos to go with each page and have it printed into a book. 
Who knew that so many people would be perplexed by the shirt Deena and her crew gave to Lawson? I didn't. I would have thought if a person didn't remember the quote from the books or movies, then the lightning bolts would have certainly given it away. Apparently, I am such a super HP fan that I didn't even realized how obsessed I was.  Seriously, if you didn't figure out where it is from given all my hints, we may not be able to be friends.

Happy Friday!


  1. LOL Glad I understood the shirt!
    I've pulled a onesie or two off around the hips due to poopsplosions!
    NEVER thought to use a q-tip for boogies, brilliant!! I'm also going to check out tha tbaby book site, love that idea thanks lady!

  2. I didn't get the shirt. I thought maybe star wars until I saw the 'HP'. Then I got it.....

  3. I totally got the shirt, and I love it!!

    I also learned about the onesie coming down instead of up from FB shortly after my baby was born (phew! no poop in the hair! haha). I also figured out the qtips for nose smart, especially when they are really little and their nostrils are super tiny.

  4. She is the cutest little Harry Potter wannabe in the whole entire world.

  5. Who knew about the poo?? Wish I had!! I was a master of the q-tip booger picking by the time had Rowan!

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…
