IMG_1615.JPG Originally uploaded by griffey Ellie is doing really, really well lately with tummy time. Her trunk muscles are getting stronger by the hour, it seems like.
IMG_1576.JPG, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza’s one-piece outfits are quickly becoming too short. Time to go shopping soon. It’s kind of hard to find clothes for baby girls without the following annoyances: ruffles (especially on the butt!) a collar that constantly sticks up, rubbing against her face gendered words like “princess,” “precious,” and “angel” bows […]

IMG_1553.JPG, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza is starting to “use” her hands more. If you offer her something, she will grab onto it for a while. Here, she explores the interesting textures of a “Taggies” book, a wonderful gift from our friend Chrysty. It seems like Eliza is changing by the minute. You can almost […]
IMG_1511.JPG Originally uploaded by griffey Eliza met Papaw (my dad) for the first time yesterday. They became fast friends, especially because Papaw sang and talked to her a lot. He was amazed at how much she smiles and how bright her eyes are, drinking in the world.

IMG_1445.JPG, originally uploaded by griffey. Here is a great pic of Eliza and cousin Parker, both right around 9 weeks old, hanging out at Nana’s house. Eliza is dainty compared to the big guy. They’re both absolutely adorable and starting to develop personalities. Parker coos and “talks” a lot, especially to his stuffed animals. Eliza […]
IMG_1405.JPG, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza is 2 months old today! I had to take her to a departmental meeting, unfortunately. And then we got stuck in the elevator on the way out. No, I’m not kidding. She could sense that I was freaking out, I think, so she cried a lot but eventually I […]
IMG_1357.JPG, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza is loving her new crib toy. It plays music and animal sounds when you kick it. She’s just starting to kick a lot, so this toy is perfect. I don’t know that she’s doing it on purpose, but it makes her quite happy, regardless. We got it because Eliza’s […]
