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.

Happy 101

Here is a lovely little award from my fellow blogger Amber.

The Happy 101 Blog Award Rules are as follows: List 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today, and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day. For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you then link back to my blog and create your list of things that make you happy.

1. Watching Eliza sleep (this does not occur too often!)

2. Listening to Eliza laugh

3. Coffee... and lots of it

4. Crocheting (yes I need to get out more)

5. Saba

6. Leaving a doctor's office

7. Volunteering

8. Friends

9. Traveling with Eliza (really ... she is quite good at it)

10. Blogging

Surely there are more than 10 bloggers who make me smile, but rules are rules:

Sara (who secretly wants an "h")

Noticing a pattern here?

anne, I would like to get in touch with you. Marilyn gave me a link to your blog and I have been reading it in fascination over the last 6 months. I went on to become a special ed teacher, go figure, and would love to connect & if there is any way I could help you I would like to! You rock as a mom, by the way! Mal will give you my e-mail!

Hi Sue!

How are you? I'm glad Marilyn pointed you to Eliza's blog. Hopefully when you say "fascination" it is in a good way and not the same fascination we have when looking at a train wreck! LOL

I would love to talk with you. Email me at elizagracesmom@yahoo.com (terribly unimaginative I know).

I just talked to Marilyn last night and heard all about her trip to Thailand. Sounds awesome. There are some photos in my past in September about our vacation with Marilyn too. Thanks to Eliza refusing to go near the sand on day one, we had to rent a lovely chic-chic cabana. Day two Marilyn and I took the bull (Eliza) by the horns and carried her to the water, which she then did not want to leave. All in all a fun time.

I would love to talk with you, catch up and pick your brain!

Thanks so much for getting in touch.

I love you for remembering I want an H. This is going to be tough for me... not because it's hard to find 10 things I'm happy about, but because I have no idea how to tag you or anyone else. Might be a while...

I have to leave this publicly before I e-mail you -- the fascination was not because I was watching a train wreck but at what an incredible mom you are, and all the incredible fighting you have done with those who are supposed to know it all. I will e-mail you now!

Anne, Eliza Grace's mom said...

Thanks Sue!

Got your email and will write back tonight after the little miss heads off to bed ... it was lovely to hear from you after all these years!
