10 Months

I can't believe it's been a month since I last blogged, it has flown by!  Eliza is so much fun right now.  She is getting into everything and having fun 99% of the time.  She likes to bob her head and "dance," clap, play peek-a-boo, eat all kinds of solid foods and pull up on everything she can crawl to.  She is desperately trying to master climbing the stairs - while I try to sit back and be zen about it even though all I want to do is go pull her away from them!  We went to our third swimming lesson today and it was the first time she was actually happy in the water.  The first two lessons she just put up with it but today she actually had fun kicking and splashing around.  I do feel like I should get an award for having to haul my 25 pound baby out of the water for each shot when we play water basketball while all the other parents nimbly pluck their mere 15 pounders out of the water :-p

Not much else is going on in the Grolnar household other than watching the time speed by through the growth of our little one.  We're trying to plan a trip out to Austin here soon before it gets too hot there, but other than that we're just hangin out having fun.

All the cool kids climb the stairs topless

Showing off her tongue

Dad refinished the table and chair that my grandfather made for him and that we all grew up with.  He made the "F" on the chair into an "E."  I absolutely love this and Eliza does too!

Hanging out in her special chair

Of course within an hour she had figured out that it can be used for climbing purposes.  D'oh!

Almost too big for the Johnny Jumpup.  That's going to be a sad sad day for all of us.

All bundled up!

Very dark video, but you can see some of Eliza's sweet moves

Peekaboo again!
