Here's Little Lion Eliza as she stalks the urban tundra, hunting for Cheerios and Soy Milk. Lucky for this photographer, she's an herbivore.
Daddy and E braved the crazy crowds to participate in Texas early voting last night. The lines into and through the polling place rivaled any popular Disneyland ride, and reminded us of the post-Thanksgiving checkout lines in Best Buy and Target.
Daddy placed the votes, and Eliza got to push the big, red button at the end. Since cameras weren't allowed inside, we snapped this photo outside, away from all the chanting people passing out flyers and begging for our votes. This little baby's opinion can't be swayed anyway.
Eliza got a lot of attention during her visit to Oregon, and on Monday morning she almost reached her threshold for being loved on. Moments later, she decided that she enjoyed being the center of attention and was ready more hugs and snuggles.
Daddy took around 500 photos while in Oregon, and he posted a quick highlight reel - about 40 of them into a "Oregon Visit Oct 08" photo gallery.
Eliza got a fabulous new hat, and she got to spend a lot of quality time with Uncle Jake and Aunt Karey in downtown PDX on Sunday. We didn't even need to take a stroller, since there were so many people willing to carry this cute kid around.
In addition to meeting all her cute cousins in Springfield and Portland, Eliza got to meet one of her favorite online pals, Charlotte. And the new mommies posed for this photo, showing off their cuties. (It kinda looks like E is working on the Vulcan greeting that Daddy showed her when they were watching Star Trek last month)
JL and Tater swapped their cute babies so that each of the kids could finally meet their uncles. Moments later, Nathan (7 months) and Eliza got to know each other as they rolled around on the floor, sharing toys.
On occassion, E would watch over Daddy and the movers to make sure they were doing a good job getting her toys and crib off the truck. She was a real taskmaster.

Okay, Daddy and E had so much fun in the pumpkin patch that they begged Mommy to go back again today for another photo shoot! We think Eliza should get a modeling contract with Baby Gap after this session, but at the very least she was rewarded with her own mini pumpkin - which she promptly tried to stuff into her entire mouth.
Here's a link to the new "Eliza's Pumpkin Patch" photo gallery (here's the link to the other one, as well).
We had a great time (and awesome seats) at the Texans vs. Colts game today. It was the perfect treat for E for growing up and turning 10 months old this past week.
I think she was a good luck charm for the Texans because they were doing great right up until the moment we left - and then the game unraveled for them at the end of the 4th quarter.
Being blinded by her insanely cute smile, it may be difficult to zero in on Eliza's new teeth. But they're there...just peeking out, ready to shoot up. They might be tiny, little nubs, but they're really sharp and she loves biting everything - including Mommy and Daddy's fingers.
