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.

Ta Da!

Guess what? Did you hear the news?

It really exciting! Shocking even!

Still no ideas?

Not to worry, it is still just us two ....

The big news is Eliza got to sing at the Pierre! Yes sir! Eliza continued the family tradition of coming from a completely tone deaf family who has no problem belting out a show tune off key!

This week, Eliza attended the fund raiser for YAI at the Pierre Hotel (very fancy schmancy). She and several of her classmates sang "Heal the World" by Michael Jackson. Blessedly someone decided to change the lyrics "there are people dying" to "there are people trying" because 4 years olds singing about dying people is just not a good thing.

Eliza did her best imitation of Eloise at the Plaza, but since I am biased, I think Eliza at the Pierre is far cuter than Eloise ever was.

Not bad for a little girl who had less than a half dozen three word sentences only 18 months ago.

A special thanks to cousins Adriana, Matthew and Peter for making it a very special night for their littlest cousin.

You have very good choice of selecting dresses for Eliza. All of her dresses are very stylish and I like the colors also. Do you have any favorite shop where you buy most of her dresses? She has been doing so many amazing things!
Is she taking any musical lesson or dance lesson?
Thank you.

Kathy, thanks for the compliments on Eliza's clothes.. The dress in these photos was actually a hand-me-down from a friend whose daughter wore it once I think.
