Is it just me or are the days just flying by??  Our summer is so jam-packed full of events that I'm not sure we'll even have time to breathe!

Here's what our upcoming weekends look like: 

June 21- Father's Day
June 27- two First Birthday parties and one adult Birthday party to attend
July 3-4- Visit from little brother and his girlfriend
July 4- Fourth of July
July 7-8- Hopeful visit from college friend
July 9-12 or thereabouts- LP and I go to PA to visit my parents.
July 18- baby shower to attend
July 20- Paul's birthday
August 3-11- My summer Seminar at work, means 12 hour days with just Sunday off for me.. ick.
August 8- Brother's birthday
August 14-17 or thereabouts- Trip to Cooperstown, NY with my family...

Throw in our regular work days and some Friday playgroups and we are all booked up!  Craziness!  You can expect lots of photos but maybe not a lot of actual blogging- we'll see!

Not too much else is going on.  LP is seven months (!!!) tomorrow so later this week I'll try to post his month 7 photos (once I've taken them) and my list of things to remember about month 7... Tomorrow AM we head to the pediatrician for his "weight check" appointment.  I'm not terribly worried- he's a healthy little guy which is really all that matters!  And really, look at those pudgy little cheeks!!

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…

Paul Thomas: Things to Remember, Five

Oh what a difference a year makes.  Paul turned FIVE on Sunday.  Last year, when he turned four, I lamented the fact that he had gone from a toddler to a little kid in the blink of an eye.  Another blink later and he’s not a little kid anymore- he’s a big kid, a five year old, heading off to pre-K with his backpack and his lunchbox and not even a wave good-bye over his shoulder. 

LP has grown several inches since he turned four- just look at the difference in the photos below, taken just about a year apart.  He looks like a baby to me in the first photo, and so grown up in the second.

At five, Paul is intelligent, engaging, witty, and I have to admit, rather adept at sarcasm (it runs in the family on both sides and was bound to happen).  He loves to talk to anyone and everyone but is particularly happy talking to grown-ups, especially the elderly people who frequent the YMCA we attend.   I’ve been told several times by them that he’ll grow up to be a politician or a salesman.  When I…
