December 2014

This month started out with getting Eliza’s first school pictures. Ok, they are BEYOND adorable. BEYOND. And I am not just saying that because I am her mother. You can see them below with all of the other pictures. And because she was scared at first they let her take a picture with Andy and that is a freaking adorable picture as well. I want these pictures displayed forever!!!

The first weekend in December Eliza was invited to her friend Summer’s house for a Teddy Bear Tea. I had never heard of that before but apparently it is a popular thing to do with kids. She had fun with her friends and we got some cute pictures.

Her school also had a cute little Christmas program and I was happy to go to that and see her sing with her friends.

We went to Dell’Osso family farm and road the train and saw the lights and had a fun time. We also observed Hanukkah this year. We never have before but Eliza is starting to understand more and I thought it might be a good Jewish holiday to get started with. She loved lighting the candles every night, although the first night she told me that she was afraid that the menorah was going to hurt her feelings. Haha!

We continued the Elf on the Shelf but apparently she was pissed anytime Snowflake, her elf, was playing on any of her toys. She would immediately take her off and put her on the table. So I guess the concept is still somewhat lost on her but at least she thinks she is watching her for good behavior!

As usual, we spent Christmas morning at home opening presents and then headed to Bob and Carole’s in the afternoon. We always have so much fun at their house and now it’s even more fun to have a little girl around to entertain us all.

After Christmas Eliza and I went to San Francisco one evening while Andy was playing volleyball and went to look at the Christmas lights. Of course we had to stop at the Disney Store too. We had so much fun and it was a great mommy/daughter bonding trip.

And on Christmas Eve we went to our friends kids New Years Eve party where we rang in the new year at noon. It was a lot of fun! We also decided to host our own New Years Eve party in the evening at our house and then celebrate the east coast new year at 9pm. We had a lot of fun and Eliza and her friends went crazy playing all over the house. Ahhh!

Some Eliza sayings this month:

She¬†pooped in the potty and was so proud of it that she told us, “That looks like a holy crap. It’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”

On our walk: a bit ago:
Eliza: That cute doggie has a tail.
Me: Do you have a tail?
Eliza: No. I have a vagina. I HAVE A VAGINA!
So glad 3 male neighbors were around to hear that. Sigh.

I JAMMED OUT when the song Bust a Move came on the radio. I thought Eliza was staring at me mesmerized at my ability to remember all the lyrics. But when the song was over she angrily proclaimed: You stole MY song that I’ve been singing since I was a little girl!!

I’m not in preschool. I’m in pajamas.

I have a secret: I like boobies.

Insists she is married to daddy. Does not like the fact that I’m married to daddy.

Dr. Office musings from Eliza:

Eww! I see poop!

I’m really sick.

I’m having so much fun at the doctor’s office.

Me: Eliza, let me read you a book
E: No, I don’t trust you

Nurse: I want to take you home.
Eliza: You can’t take me home. I belong to my mommy.
