Isn't she beautiful? I took these in the car after bike riding. Derek ran into Starbucks and Eliza climbed into the driver's seat. I wish the middle photo hadn't turned out blurry because it would've been one of the best pictures of Eliza.

Anyway, here's 2 of Eliza's "new" favorite videos to watch...

She loves riding her bike. When I'm weeding in the backyard, I'll find her in our shed, sitting on a big bike that she somehow managed to climb onto (and thank goodness it didn't fall over on her). She also loves to try out all the bikes when we see any in the stores. We do have a big-girl bike with training wheels that she's "working" on, but for the sake of fun and not work, she would rather ride this bike right now because she loves pedaling backwards and the big-girl bike "brakes" when you pedal backwards. Anyone remember those "Big Wheel" trike things from the 70's...this is very similar. Derek and I were reminscing about how much fun those were when we were kids. No wonder she enjoys riding it! As you can see in the video, she also enjoys riding up on the curbs and then backing down. You can't hear it in the video, but she has figured out if she pedals fast, then stops pedaling, she skids! She's so funny...

Love her in braids and her dress!! She is so stylish!! The pictures are fabulous - she is such a BEAUTY and smart too!! From your videos, I can tell that she receptively understands so much. I mean, sure, she has "selective hearing" (like Viv does!) but our girls understand and know SO MUCH. :-)

Cute pictures! Eliza's hair is so nice and thick.

Lily also loves climbing on any bike she sees. She can't pedal yet, but she loves to try out the big girl bikes.

Have a good week.

I was just getting caught up on your blog and watching the videos and Kassidy came in and watched every one of them with me and chuckled when Eliza laughed. She is just adorable and so fun to watch. We still gotta get together soon. Take Care.
