10 on 10: March

10 on 10:
Ten photos taken during one day or event, documenting that day or event, and posted on the tenth of the month.
For March’s 10 on 10 project I decided to just focus on a regular evening during the week.  Paul gets home from work around 5 p.m. and then we have the usual dinner, bath, bedtime routines of everyday life….

Paul needs about half an hour to decompress from work when he gets home:



Then it's time for dinner.

LP loves to help give Eliza her bath:

And of course we have to spend some time admiring the cute baby in the mirror afterwards:

Once Eliza is tucked in it's time for LP to head to bed.  First we brush teeth:

Then it's story time.  Lately he's into the "Mrs. Piggle Wiggle" stories which are a favorite from my childhood.  (In fact, this might surprise my mother but I remember walking to Lafayette College with her when we were little and buying the book in the campus bookstore....)

Once the kids are in bed and Paul is asleep on the couch I get to spend some time with my other loves- fabric and my sewing machine!

Now hop on over to Heather Grace Photography to see her 10 on 10 for March!

  2. I love the bath pictures, too! What I love most is the cheese grater next to her tub. LOL. That looks like the random stuff that was on my counter when I would bathe my kiddos in the sink. They're a bit too big for that now. Looks like you had an enjoyable evening!

  4. Oh my! That bath shot....I just had to stare at it a bit because it's SO cute! I love the baby watching big brother. And I love the other stuff on the counter since it's a snapshot of real life. The reading photos and all the different compositions are great, too!

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…

Motherhood…

I’m finding myself a bit scattered about what I want to say on Mother’s Day this year.  While I love the idea of a day that’s meant for celebrating mothers who are so rarely thanked for all they do, I find it to be a rather bittersweet holiday.  Much like Valentine’s Day can be hard for people who long to be in a relationship with someone, Mother’s Day can be very hard for those who want so badly to be mothers.  And while I’ve been fortunate enough to be the recipient of Mother's Day cards, flowers, hugs and kisses for five years now, my heart still aches for everyone hoping and praying to celebrate it themselves one day- those waiting to receive smudgy cards with little handprints and cheesy poems, to be served breakfast in bed by excited little ones, to be handed a beautiful yellow flower (aka dandelion) because it’s a special day for Mama.  And so I think that Mother’s Day should be a day to celebrate all sorts of “mothers.”  Mothers of young children, mothers of grown children…

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…
