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.

Kindergarten Art

Eliza's school has a fabulous art teacher.  Eliza learns about different artists, their techniques, materials used and how to apply those techniques and materials.  This week there was an art show at Eliza's school and the children's work was just wonderful to see.  Below are a few samples of Eliza's work.

Pencil sketch of her sneaker:

Pastel and rubbing of a fish:

Water color of Bosley her cat:

Still life collage (fruit and bowl on a table):

Tree Mosaic:

Mixed media:

Cow with paper weaving:

Oil pastel sea shell and sea fan:

 Fabric self-portrait:

Papa in water color:

The portrait of my Dad, Eliza's Papa, is interesting since he passed away before Eliza turned three.  Anyone who knew my Dad would have to admit there is a striking resemblance to him :)  We have a photo at home of my Dad wearing a green shirt holding Eliza, so I am guessing this is why he has a green shirt in the painting.

Then again, Eliza seems to have an uncanny memory for things I would never have guessed she could have remembered ... but that my friends is the topic of a whole other post.

These are beautiful--and that last one is especially touching. Eliza is a sensitive and talented artist. How wonderful that she has such a great art program to guide her in developing this talent.

I hope you have lots of wall space in your home!

Bosley is my favorite, it definitely needs to be framed. What a great art program.

You operate a terrific blog and I have heard about you from several 'Moms'. I was interacting with many Moms with toddlers recently since we had come up with a phone application (called Vurbal) that worked quite well for them and got amazing responses. Wanted to get your opinion as well for this:
It is a group voice communication app. Many moms told us that while handling kids, it was very difficult to text someone or constantly hold a phone to talk. Our app (currently iPhone only) seemed very interesting to them as one has to just use one finger and their own voice to communicate. We have seen a good adoption among this demographic in the bay area. I would love to get your feedback on this product.
