Three Weeks....

So it's been almost 3 weeks since I last posted.  It's shameful, I know, that I haven't been keeping you all up to date on all of the exciting activities going on in our lives... I'm sure you're feeling the loss and have just been huddled in front of your computer monitors desperately waiting for an update.

Really though, it's been a pretty hectic few weeks.  The day after my last post I attended 3 birthday parties- two were first birthdays and LP and I went together, and the third was a friend's birthday that evening which BP and I attended.  I took no photos at any of these parties unfortunately- Paul stayed home to get some yard work done while LP and I went to the kiddy parties and so my hands were full.  Here's a pic of LP playing with one of the birthday boys (this was party number 2 for us that day) that someone else took:

And here's the birthday boy's mom Jaimie holding LP- We celebrated Jaimie's birthday later that night!

The following weekend was the July 4th weekend.  Friday my high school roommate Linsey visited for a few hours, meeting LP for the first time.  My brother Spencer and his girlfriend also arrived Friday morning to stay until Saturday afternoon.  Here are a few pics Linsey took:

Saturday morning Paul played with LP in the morning so that I could shower with the door closed (which seriously, is heavenly.  Any day I get to shower with the door closed is a good day).  I came downstairs to find LP helping Daddy in the garage:

In the evening we BBQed with Paul's parents.  LP enjoyed a bottle and a teething biscuit instead of some smoked ribs.

Sunday we took LP to the park where he went on a swing for the first time and totally loved it (and I neglected to take my camera with me.)  Then we came home and collapsed on the couch for the rest of the day.

On Tuesday after the 4th my college friend came to visit until Thursday when LP and I dropped her off in Connecticut on our way to Pennsylvania.  While in PA we saw tons of people, I went to a family baby shower, Grandpa and Uncle Nelson babysat LP after a few quick refreshers/lessons in how to diaper a baby, LP went to church (and behaved very well through the Longest Sermon Ever) and then he went swimming for the first time.

Now we're home (we missed Paul like crazy and I know he missed us too- he told me on Monday night that usually when I go away for a few days he enjoys having some time to himself, but that this time he just spent the whole weekend missing us instead- awww....) and trying to get back to our normal routine even though this weekend I'll be driving to NJ for the day (yikes- 5 hours each way!) for another baby shower and we'll celebrate Paul's birthday on Sunday.  I'm thinking next weekend might be a quiet one though!

And one more thing:

On June 19 Paul took this picture of Little Paul.  He clearly had no top teeth.   Today, July 15, not even one month later, the kid has 3 teeth on top!  He is teething fast and furious (and thankfully without too much fuss)... It's so strange to see teeth in those little gums- I'll try to get a picture soon to share!

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…

I Heart Faces- Let's Hear it for the Boys

This week at I ♥ Faces  the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Boys."  I had a hard time choosing just one photo but finally chose this photo of two of the "boys" in my life- one being my son, LP, the other being Woody the Toy Story doll. 

LP carries Woody with him all over the place.  One day I found them curled up on the couch, deep in conversation about rockets and Buzz Lightyear and aliens...  I love this picture as it always reminds me of how imaginative LP is- he's forever making up adventures to have with Woody...

House Tour...

I've totally fallen out of the habit of blogging since we moved to Las Vegas.  We've been so busy settling in, hosting family for the holidays, having visitors, and just generally adjusting to our new life here in the desert that months have gone by since I last blogged!

Although our Las Vegas house doesn't need as much work and fixing up as our house in Massachusetts did, we still have lots of big plans.  Paul and I can't just let things be- we always have a list of projects we want to do and it's rare that we don't have one in progress...   I was good at documenting the changes we made to our Massachusetts house and I still love looking back on it so I want to be sure to document our work here on our Vegas house.

To start, here are the before photos- we're settled in, furniture is bought and arranged, but the house is missing personality- it desperately needs some paint on these white walls!

My father-in-law drew up these floors plans for us when we were …
