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.

Flamingo Girl

Eliza decided to be a "Flamingo Dancer" for Halloween.

I almost got her a "Flamenco Dancer" costume. Thankfully she was pretty insistent that she wanted to be a flamingo that danced.

And so she was.


Eliza and her best buddy, William, headed off to the American Museum of Natural of History for some Halloween fun.



Eliza is the "older woman" and so has no hesitancy to corner William and tell him what she wants to do.



And if he doesn't listen the first time, she can get pretty insistent:


Eliza got to see the Giant Blue Whale with her favorite cousins:


She got to meet Teddy Roosevelt:


And Teddy got to meet his very first Flamingo Dancer:


And Mama and Eliza got to spend a fun day together:


And of course, Eliza got to do some pretty fancy Flamingo dancing:

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for your kind words. Eliza's costume is from www.chasing-fireflies.com Make sure you put the hyphen in the website name.

She looks amazing. I love the flamingo dance. Your child has somehow made a flaming pink mass of feathers stylish.
