Tomorrow LP turns 3 (!!!) and I'll be back with a sappy post all about how he lights up our lives and is so loving and sweet.  Today though, I thought I'd share some photos from the past few years that perhaps I haven't shared before - some that are just plain funny, and some that show a bit more of his feisty side...
When LP was just a few days old Gabby thought he'd be a tasty snack.
Dachshund says "yum!"

At 2 weeks he somewhat resembled a funny little troll.
December 5 "Photo Shoot"

At 3 weeks he was very good at letting us know when he was angry.

He was still good at that at 2 months...

But had also mastered the "Mom - you're soooo annoying" expression...

And at 3 months he'd moved on to the "maybe if I close my eyes they'll go away" trick.

LP at 5 months knew how to shoot evil death rays of disdain from his eyes....

And kept practicing the look at 5 months.

At 5 months LP finally started to realize that someone was stinking up the place pretty frequently...

And at 6 months decided to blame the dog.

Life as an 8 month old was simply exhausting...

But things perked up at 11 months when LP discovered Mom and Dad's stash of booze.

As a 13 month old Little Paul enjoyed his first bites of crab rangoon....
12-12-2009 8-19-24 PM_0026

And at 16 months declared his hatred for hats with pompoms...

And his love for his Hugh Hefner robe.

At 17 months he became adept at sticking out his tongue...

And also at using it to devour ice cream cones.

At 19 months Little Paul let his goofy side run wild...
2010-07-21 17-25-26_0027

And kept it up at 20 months...
2010-08-29 12-08-57_0005

and 22 months.
2010-09-24 13-14-45_0114

When he was 26 months old, LP discovered the joy of paint smeared on hands and face...
2011-01-07 14-20-17_0057wm

And the joy of jumping on the couch.
2011-02-13 20-33-29_0042wm

At 28 months he preferred a wind-swept look...
2011-03-18 18-02-51_0140wm

Which was somewhat cleaner than the chocolate ice cream covered look he preferred at 32 months,
2011-07-02 20-05-28_0021wm

Which he alternated with his tried and true paint-covered look.
2011-07-29 15-55-05_0017wm

At 33 months the goofiness shown through once again...
2011-08-03 16-22-19_0065wm
2011-08-21 15-02-00_0037wm

And has continued through 34 months...

2011-09-02 18-46-48_0011wm
2011-09-05 13-13-02_0086wm

Until today...

No matter the mood though, we always love our stubborn/cranky/silly/goofy/angry/dirty little man...

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…
