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!

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 …
