March 2014

I feel like every month with Eliza is more and more fun. Her happy, friendly personality is so infectious. She is so much fun to be around. We started out the month by taking Eliza to her first dentist appointment. She did great and was very brave. She cried a little when the dentist looked into her mouth but she was good for the hygienist and was happy that they had a princess movie on the TV. I felt like such a normal mom that day because after her appointment we had lunch at In-N-Out Burger and then went to Miglet’s cupcake shop to get her a gluten, dairy and egg free cupcake. It was so freeing to be able to give her a treat from a store and not have to worry what was in it.

She’s getting more into picking out her own clothes and puts together some interesting outfit combinations at times but she always looks cute! One time when we were going shopping she grabbed her purse to bring with her. It was really cute.

She also turned 2 on March 24. She had a birthday party on Saturday, March 22 at the park across the street from our house. It was convenient and easy and she had a lot of fun. She loves Minnie and Mickey Mouse so we had a Minnie Mouse party. I had fun getting the balloons and decorations and stuff and she loved seeing Minnie everywhere and playing with her friends.

On her actual birthday she brought cupcakes to daycare to share and then Andy and I took her to dinner at In-N-Out Burger and sat outside and had a nice time. Then she came home and watched Mickey Mouse and went to bed. It was the perfect evening for her.

She had her 2 year check up on March 28 and all is good and she is healthy. She is 35in tall and weighs 25lbs, 14oz so almost 26 pounds. This was also the first time since her hospitalization last March that she DIDN’T cry for the doctor. I was so proud of her. Such a big girl!

The last weekend of the month my friend Stephanie was in town from Toronto and I was so happy that she finally got to meet Eliza. They loved each other and had a great time. My cousin Brad and his girlfriend Ania also came up from LA that weekend and she had a blast playing with her cousin “Braddy Rimski.” (His name is Brad Zarembski and he used to call himself that when he was a kid).

There is a funny story to go with Brad’s visit. One day she was playing with her “around the world” puzzle and decided that the guy from Egypt was Braddy Rimski. He is not Egyptian but we thought it was hilarious so we told Brad when he came into town. He wanted to hear her say that the Egyptian puzzle piece was him so he got this hilarious video of her:  http://youtu.be/NsJG3J7GgHs

And some funny Eliza musings from the month:

While watching the Oscars she threw down her writing pad then angrily screamed “I NEED to color!”

Me: You’re my baby Eliza
Eliza: I not baby Eliza
Me: So you’re just Eliza?
Eliza: I not Eliza, I a big baby shark!

On 3/21 (ironically that was her due date) she started making up stories on her own. She read stories to her dog, told me her dog was sick and was taking care of it, told me the dog was sleeping, also that the dog wanted her to hold him.

We downloaded Frozen on Amazon Prime and she is obsessed. She loves the song Let it Go and sings it all the time. One day in Walnut Creek I was opening an account at Wells Fargo and she was walking around the bank singing “Let it go, let it go.” Luckily she charmed everyone and got a balloon.

She loves to tell us what we can and can’t do (like sing and laugh).

She will ask a question and I will answer and she tells me my answer is wrong.

Grandma at daycare taught her where she lives so when you ask her she says “Concord, California.”
