IMG_4182 Originally uploaded by griffey I think it’s adorable that Eliza is one of those kids. You know, the ones that always have a stuffed animal in tow. The thing is, with her, you never know which one she’s going to choose. But if you look closely at a lot of our photos, there’s some […]
Ladybug Girl, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza had an incredible time this weekend at Lake Winnie, an amusement park outside of Chattanooga. It was her first park experience, and she was completely fearless. She wanted to ride everything, to the point where we actually had to talk her away from things (“No, Eliza, I think […]

IMG_0985 Originally uploaded by griffey Jason celebrated his birthday, and Eliza was happy to provide cupcakes, party hats, balloons, and singing. There’s nothing she loves more than a birthday party. Next is Easter, and she’s excited about the Easter Bunny, although she seems convinced that the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are the same. After […]
Eliza has become quite the story teller, after having so many books read to her. She already has a great sense of how to put a story together, although she loses her train of thought sometimes. It’s interesting what comes out in these “tales.” In this one, she admits she got frustrated (“very good frustrated”) […]
