Throwback Thursday Is Afoot.


Throwback Thursday! It’s Eliza’s foot when she was born on one side, her foot today on the other. Can you guess which is which? Ha, just kidding. It’s totally obvious. I can’t even believe her feet were that small ever. It’s a good thing babies can’t walk because if they could they’d just fall over …

Binoculars to help you see


Eliza learned how make hand binoculars/monoculars/telescopes to help her see, in this pic she was using her monocular.

Monsters University. Her Favorite Movie and It Could Be Yours Too.

One of Eliza’s all time favorite movies is Pixar’s Monsters University. It’s really great seeing how Mike Wazowski and Sully met and became really great friends.

This Girl Is Crazy Looking Sometimes

  Wait, what? That’s what she has taken a liking to saying and it’s pretty funny. She even uses it at appropriate times, she’s pretty good at words. Just look at her though, doesn’t she look a bit crazy? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just sayin’.

There Was A Big Log Waiting For Me

  When I got home tonight, Eliza was sitting on her little potty chair. As I walked through the door she said, “Dad, there’s a log for you.” And sure enough there was a log waiting for me in there. A poop log, in case you didn’t know what I meant. So that’s good. My …

1st Trip To The Dentist

  Tomorrow morning Eliza gets to take her 1st trip to the dentist. I’m not sure how well it’s going to go. She really has a hard time sitting still. I guess it’s sort of a trial visit, they’re not expecting her to do much. I bet almost no kid her age likes it or …

Meeting The Easter Bunny

  They both met the Easter Bunny this weekend at an early Easter pancake breakfast and egg hunt. It was pretty fun except for when Eliza met the Easter Bunny. She didn’t like it at all. I guess he was just too big or something. We tried to get a nice pic of her and …
