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.

Jazz Hands and Tutus

Eliza is embarking on several rites of passage into life as a girlie-girl.

It may seem as if Eliza is doing her best "Jazz Hands" here:


But in fact she is showing off her very first manicure! One hand pink and one hand white, like her flower garden she will tell you (she decided her green nail polish could wait for manicure number two).

Her first manicure was courtesy of Aunt Bonnie who was more than happy to be part of this rite of passage, and who does a pretty good manicure too!





Eliza has also decided that each day requires a new tutu. Thankfully she has a few tutus since she now wears them everywhere, even climbing in the playground.





The tom boy still lurks inside of Eliza since she has perfected climbing the rock wall in her tutu and her favorite toys are her Lightening McQueen and the King (or "Dinoco" as she calls him).

Oh, I agree: Each day requires a new tutu. How funny! And she climbs the rock wall in her tutu? Now that's multitasking! You are absolutely precious, Eliza!

How is it that your child manages to make tutus stylish?

Too cute. I love her Tutu.
I have pictures of Elizabeth in her Lightening McQueen pj's and a tutu. It is great that they interests on both sides. Elizabeth loves a manicure but also loves dirt.
