Eliza and Nathanael Green.

Today we strolled around downtown Greenville, and baby Eliza stopped for a moment to pose with Revolutionary War hero Nathanael Green (the father of Greenville). How did she know it'd make for a perfect photo leading up to Independence Day this week? That's one smart baby we got here.
She's getting the hang of it!
Solo feeding, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
Eliza loves feeding herself, but she's not quite ready for the bigger bottles. Since it was hot outside today, we decided to give her some cold water in a practice bottle. She did pretty well!
Her trick: using her her feet to lift the bottle.

Eliza definitely isn't a fan of her new meat-based baby food: Beef, Carrots and Corn.

Eliza loves hats and blankets...why not combine them?
A book before bedtime!

Grammy Lew and Mommy read a cute story to Eliza before bed tonight. She was so captivated with all the pictures that it distracted her from her favorite story time activity: kicking the book.
Little Miss Soapy Suds!

Here's a shot from Eliza at bath time - which she absolutely loves. We had exactly five seconds to take this shot before she'd start rubbing soap all over the place.
Mommy's little helper.

Eliza loves to help get clothes out of the dryer and help Mommy fold them. Okay, she's just around for the ride....but she still had a fun time and enjoys riding in her magical basket chariot.
Baby's learning to feed herself!

While we were enjoying a nice evening snack and drinks, Eliza decided she wouldn't wait around and started feeding herself. Now if she can only change her own diapers...
Fun with Mommy and Aunt Karey

Here's another shot from the red carpet! Daddy won the Emmy for "On Camera Talent - Performer" and Mommy won the BIG award for "Best Newscast".
Of course, the best little award is the little lady in this photo. She's never gonna let us that that tiara off now.
Emmy Night: Red Carpet fashion

Eliza showed up at the Southeast Regional Emmys on Saturday night to wish her mommy and daddy luck with their nominations, and she also took time to pose for the paparazzi.
She loves the shades.

Eliza sure loves to wear fancy hats and glasses. However, until her little button nose gets bigger the shades will always slide right off her face. And then she eats them.
Aunt Karey and Eliza

Just after Grandma Cathy left, Aunt Karey showed up the next day to spend some time with little Eliza. And from the looks of it, they're becoming fast friends. This weekend we're all going to take a trip to Atlanta, where I'm sure we'll take plenty more cute photos.
Six month checkup!
Exam Room Paper, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
Eliza went in for her 6 month doctor's visit today, where she practiced one of her favorite pastimes: kicking the hell out of the exam room paper. She also got a round of shots - which didn't go over so well. She screamed and cried, but seemed to forget all about it by the time she got to the car.
Here's her new vital stats:
Height: 26.5” - (65th percentile)
Weight: 15 lbs, 9 oz - (30th percentile)*
Head: 43.5 cm - (70th percentile)
Basically, she's weighs a pound more and is an inch taller. Way to go, baby!
Baby feeds herself.

Daddy was trying to feed Eliza some food tonight, but she kept trying to snatch away the spoon for herself. So he decided to let her try to feed herself. It's funny to watch her eat the food, get revulsed, and then attempt to eat it again.
Today is all about Daddy.

Who are we kidding? It's all about baby around here, but Daddy had a wonderful time playing with his little lady today. They started off the day by reading some books given to him by the ladies: "Daddy's Kisses" from Kyann, "Daddy's Cuddles" from Grammy Lew, and "I Love Daddy" from Grandma Cathy.
Later, Eliza helped Daddy upload photos to her photo gallery and took a really long nap while the grown-ups did all the chores.
Little Miss Princess!

If you thought other pictures of Eliza in hats were cute, then check this one out! Our little princess has the perfect hair for keeping this thing on her head...not that she'd ever let us take it off anyway.
Sleepy zen baby.

Baby loves bacon!
IMG_1185, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
This morning while eating breakfast and getting ready for work, I noticed Eliza gnawing on her new plush piggy. Up until this point she has mostly shown signs of being a vegan: eating only pureed vegetables and drinking soy milk. Now daddy has another person he has to share bacon with.
Thanks, Anne and Dennis for Mr. Pigglesworth
Scary baby dreams.
night terrors, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
This'll probably be one of the only videos or photos we'll post in which Eliza isn't smiling or shrieking with delight. Instead, we get a glimpse of her sometimes weird baby nightmares. I imagines she's dreaming of her bottle running out of formula, or being eaten by a giant blanket.
Yummy bottle, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
She's too little to gulp down the ice cold water, but she really enjoys having a good lick on the outside of Grandma's bottle.
Trying to beat the heat.

Here's a shot of three lovely ladies (Eliza, Grandma Cathy, Kyann) trying to beat the 100 degree heat. We were down at Callaham Orchard to celebrate one of Eliza's little friend Matthew's first birthday.

Eliza's favorite new toy.
IMG_0922, originally uploaded by littlelostrobot.
After a brief trip to Babies-R-Us with Grandma Cathy, Eliza walked away (or rather, strolled away) with this nifty activity mat. She basically lies on the ground and reaches up to pull or smack around adorable stuffed animals. It certainly must be fun because Mommy couldn't wait to get in on the action.
The SuperBabyDelegates have chosen!

Eliza has finally decided to weigh-in and lend her support to Democratic presidential hopeful, Barack Obama. She believes in his campaign for change - despite that her idea of "change" often involves diapers.
