Eliza Grace was born on March 15, 2006, at 26 weeks, 4 days, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and measuring just 11.5 inches long. She is the light of my soul and this is the story of our life in the big city.

Yikers! 21 Months Today

Can you believe Little Miss Eliza Grace is 21 months old? Well she is and she sure is acting like a toddler. There are few surfaces safe from her climbing and the stroller might as well be put into storage since she hates going in it now that she is walking. She pretty much can walk a half mile in Central Park without looking to be picked up or to get into her stroller. Hey, if the rest of America did that we'd be a slim-looking nation. Her running skills are improving, however she occasionally still wobbles a bit at full speed.

She is also too nosey for her own good. Under the bridge in the park there is a dog run that caught Eliza Grace's attention. Although she has yet to say the word "dog," every time she sees a dog she lets out a very high pitched "arf" ... not unlike the sound a Yorkie would make. I would point out we are a "big" dog family so hopefully this imitation of a lapdog isn't a sign of some future preference.

Eliza Grace's cousin Peter, who is quite the photographer, did a test run of some photos of Eliza Grace in her Christmas dress. The test run does not bode well for those perfectly posed studio shots. Couldn't get tights or shoes on her or get her to sit still to get her hair brushed. But I think I prefer the less than perfectly posed photos, messy curls and all.

And what would be a post without a comment on her eating....in the last few days Eliza has tried: more pizza, eggs and cheese and is up to about 4 yogurts a day plus 12 to 16 ounces of formula.
