Crazy Times

Many a morning I find...

 Quite the hair-doo.

Eliza next to a pile of papers from the past two years of school that we finally got rid of.

 Turkies again in our backyard on an icy morning.They were making the weirdest noises.

Eliza's cheeser smile.

11 Months!

Wow! 11 months! Eliza is getting more and more fun by the day-- playing peek-a-boo with us, doing the "motions" for "Twinkle, Twinkle," pretending to be on the phone, saying "da-da" when she sees/hears Andrew...

Speaking of Andrew, check out this picture:

 Holy moly, she looks like her dad in this picture!

 Doing her 360 bum spin.

 Waving at the camera.

Okay Mom, that's enough!

Cousin Time

Eliza was lucky enough to spend time with a cousin on each side of the family this Christmas.  She is older than both of them, but much smaller.  She still managed to steal some toys from them though, and maybe occasionally sit on them. 

With cousin Jack Madsen (Erica's side of the family).  He is 7 weeks younger than Eliza, but they were both mobile and loved exploring everything! Especially my family's dog.

On Andrew's side, cousin Noah is about 4 months younger than Eliza! He is a roller, and Eliza took advantage of that.  Poor Noah! He was a good sport.

 Almost holding hands!
 Back with cousin Jack! Jack put up with Eliza too. 

Just a little too cute.


Andrew's sister, Lydia (Hi Lydia!), had some rubber bands from her braces that she let us use to give Eliza her first pigtails! 

 Kind of alien/bug-like, but sure cute.


Eliza's first encounter with snow! Kind of a love-hate thing going on. 
In Utah with Andrew's family.  We miss them!
 (This is before we took her sledding. AND it is fresh, clean snow, just fyi.)
