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.

First Day of Preschool

Eliza sailed off to preschool without batting an eye! She did really well on her first day. Made at least one new friend and lined up all of the farm animals immediately upon entering her new classroom. Overall a good day. The only real negative was the school's misunderstanding about Eliza's feeding protocol. Hopefully by next week that will have been resolved.




As Eliza searched for the correct elevator, she not once looked over her shoulder for me! I think a few months in a plastic box in the NICU teaches some serious self-reliance!

What a big girl! Our kids are growing up. She is so beautiful. Can't wait to see her (and you of course) this weekend!

Way to go, Eliza! We are so proud that you did so well today (even if your teacher didn't do quite as stellar of a job as you did).

I've been thinking about you and wondering how it went. She looks so grown up. I know it sounds crazy, but what is it about a back pack that makes a kid look so grown up?

Good for her. Elizabeth did not bat an eye when she started pre-school. She still to this day takes off when I drop her off and runs right to the sensory bin to get her 'fix' as we call it.
