I was fortunate to pick up E at daycare last night and witness her having the time of her life with the other kids, wearing silly animal hats and dancing. They really do a good job of playing with the kids and teaching them fun, new things.
I would of got more, but the battery in the flipcam died while recording.
This little lady has fun at daycare with all her friends, but at the end of the day she's quite happy to see Mommy and Daddy.
This video started about a half second after she shouted "Dada!" at maximum volume. Picking up the kid is my favorite part of the day, and now I can watch the video over and over at work until then...
She's ready for school - despite the fact that it's 9pm, she's several years too young, and isn't wearing anything other than a diaper.
But she sure looks cute in that backpack (which is hopefully filled with diapers and wipes).
It's been just over a week since Eliza started walking all by herself, so today we decided to see just how far she could go (if she wanted to), and so we went into the hallway outside our place to put E to the test...
Here's Eliza's first steps! Okay, not specifically her first steps - those happened to a pair of awestruck parents who were just sitting on the floor when she started randomly walking around - these are the early stages of her walking.
She's doing pretty good, and mostly walks when she's delivering various items between Mommy and Daddy. We've had lots of fun moments in the past 24 hours when she will suddenly stand up and wander off.
Eliza likes watching Brobee on the "Yo Gabba Gabba!" television program. But she wasn't too crazy about meeting him in person this afternoon on the living room floor.
In fact, it kinda freaked her out.
(They later became friends and dancing buddies)
Eliza got a little grumpy as she got ready to leave this morning. She was mad that she couldn't play with mom's cell phone. She enjoys looking at photos of herself on the phone. She exclaims "di da" which we think is her version of Eliza and then kisses the phone.

Eliza recently got her passport in the mail, and let us know she was ready for vacation by getting into one of her fancy, new swimsuits! Mommy got her a bunch of cute outfits to wear on our family cruise in May - plenty of time for us to stock up on sunscreen.
We had to bundle up this weekend. The temperatures dropped from the 70's
down to the chilly 60's. The changing weather allowed for Eliza to wear
her super cute pink puffy vest (see below).
But we really can't complain. Our pals in South Carolina got slammed
with winter weather. Kelly sent us this photo of Kensie looking cute and
stylin' in the snow. Greenville got several inches. Wait, isn't it
March?! Kelly and the folks at FOX Carolina
www.foxcarolina.com/index.html have been busy covering the heck
out of the storm. Makes me kinda wish I were there. I do love winter
Eliza went and got all clever on us - figuring out how to open all the unlocked doors in the house. So we went and got clever on her, and installed some child-proof handle guards.
(We give her a week before she's figured out these things too).
Eliza loves her french fries, and today she discovered a new culinary treat. She saw Mommy and Daddy dipping their fries in some kind of sauce and just had to try it out for herself.
She loved sucking the ketchup off the same fry over and over. And she did a much better job before the video camera started rolling.
