Eliza the 3 (almost 4) Month Old!

 Right after bath time! One of few pictures where Eliza looks like my (Erica's) baby pictures.
 This was a hard picture to get! Its hard to tell, but she has a birthmark right below her neck that looks like a price tag/ barcode.  Pretty fitting since it was a little expensive (could have been worse!) to get her here! :)
 Our happy little 3 month-er. Thanks Nikki for the sign again! We're at my parent's house for most of these pictures. We were there for 3 weeks while Andrew studied and took his Board exam, Step 1.  We are VERY glad that is over!
 She has been fascinated by the camera, so its been harder to get smiles out of her when we're taking pictures. Dang it!
 Helping Mom with laundry.  You can't really tell, but she grabbed some pants.

 I don't think she wanted me to take her picture.  I feel like I just had a flash-forward, with her making this face, saying, "Mom! Don't!
 Caught in the act! Grabbing her gym toys.  Josh, my brother, helped teach her how to grab her toys (putting them in her hands), and the day he went into the MTC for his mission for our church, she grabbed it on her own.  What a great uncle-- teaching her stuff already! This play gym is the best-- she loves it! (Thanks again to the Ebberts!)

 I left for maybe one minute on Tuesday to find her rolled to her side, trying to look out the window.  I thought it was just a fluke, but she did it again today! She is definitely making her opinions more known lately, and really wants to move when she does tummy time (or anytime really).  Somehow she goes from one end of the blanket to the other with how she shimmies her legs. 
 Reading books with Dad before bedtime.
 Photo shoot!

 She is quite the slobber queen lately.
And her favorite toys right now... her fingers.


  1. Oh my goodness! Erica, she is such a doll. She is getting so big. I can't believe it. Anyway, I'm glad life is good with you and your family. I can't wait to get back to Iowa City so we can get together again.

  2. My baby has the same elephant onesie, except the pink part is blue on his :)

  3. I can't believe how much she's grown since I saw her last! She has such a beautiful smile and she is adorable.
