Even More Pats on my Back....

I know, I've been all braggy on this blog lately, what with all my recent posts about photo contest entries and mentions on other peoples' blogs... Bear with me one more time and I promise I'll get back to the good stuff (if updates about LP's potty training is considered "good stuff"). 

Ok to two of my favorite sewing bloggers (Dana at MADE, and Rae at Made By Rae)do this whole "Celebrate the Boy" thing a few times a year.  They basically decided that because there are so many people showing off adorable things they made for little girls that those of us with boys needed a little attention too.  Just because little girls can wear ruffles and sunbonnets and other adorable things, doesn't mean the things we make for our little guys can't be spiffied up and super cute too, right? 

So a few weeks ago Rae at Made By Rae did a little photo round up of all the boy projects she really loves from the "Celebrate the Boy" photo pool over at flickr.  Check it out!  See that little khaki hat with a red whale on it in the top row of the second photo mosaic?  Yup!  I made that one as a gift for a friend's little boy's first birthday (and yes, I ironed out the crease in the brim- did it after I took the pictures though!).

So, I'm sure my 15 minutes of "fame" are now up, and I'll stop bragging about my stuff showing up on other people's blogs!  Back to life as usual!

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…
