September 2014

One of Eliza’s big milestones in September was riding her tricycle around the neighborhood without help! She had started pedaling in August but in September she was able to ride around the entire neighborhood. She was super excited for this new milestone and it’s been fun to get out and about and enjoy the nice fall weather while she rides her bike around.

There was also a horseback riding playdate this month with one of the mom’s groups I belong to. Eliza got to go and groom horses and ride them. She was super serious when she was riding the horse and seemed like she was concentrating and wouldn’t let anyone joke with her. It was so funny. We may have a budding equestrian on our hands. We will see.

The third weekend in September we took a short family trip to Reno and stopped in Tahoe on the way there. I love the Lone Eagle Grille at the Hyatt Regency in Incline Village so we stopped there for lunch on our way to Tahoe. The restaurant is right by the beach and randomly we ran into our friend Tina and her mom and daughter Victoria. We played on the beach for a bit and then went back to have lunch.

We had a good time in Reno. Andy did a little gambling and Eliza enjoyed playing games and winning prizes at Circus Circus. We walked around Reno and tried some good restaurants and it was a nice getaway.

Later in the month my mom and Aunt Ruth came to visit for a few days in the middle of their California trip. We went to Muir Woods and Napa and had a really nice visit.

Another big thing was that I finally found some ice cream that Eliza can eat! With all of her food allergies, I didn’t think it was possible. But SO Delicious makes some coconut milk ice cream and she isn’t allergic to any of the ingredients. It is exciting to have that option when I need it in the future.

Eliza-isms for this month:

I love daddy SO MUCH. And I love you. And I love myself. And I love my doggie SO MUCH.

Eliza: I’m grumpy because I’m mad.
Me: Why are you mad?
Eliza: Because I don’t want turkey. I want ground beef.
