Happy Memorial Day weekend and happy birthday Grandma!!











No more ponytails or chewing on my hair (well, ok, I can still put my hair in my mouth and mommy said that we might have to cut it shorter, but 4 inches off was good enough for now). Yes, I got a new summer haircut. And guess what else? Yesterday, our pool opened and I swam for 4 hours (not counting the annoying breaktimes when the lifeguards made me get out and rest, but at least I got to eat snacks then). It only took me one time to be reminded that I had to get out of the pool for breaktime. I screamed and kicked for about 5 seconds and mommy had to remind me that everyone gets out of the pool. The rest of the afternoon, when the lifeguard blew the whistle, I got right out. The water was really cold, but I got used to it. Even mommy came in and helped me learn to swim again. I practiced lots of jumping into the water while mommy helped me. I was also happy to see so many of my old friends. All the mom's kept saying that we've all grown so much...well, we are 4 now! I wasn't as shy this year and I made great eye contact with my friends and their mommys'. Everyone noticed and told me I was such a big girl. Mommy said that I mimicked and played and talked a lot and that I did really good. I even called out "mama" when I wanted something. It was a lot of fun! I can't wait to go to the pool again...today, right mommy?

Aunt Dar SAID,

Eliza you are getting so big and I am very proud you listened to the lifeguard. Swimming makes you very tired and short breaks are very good for you. SNACKS lol I hope to to see you swim very soon. I am very proud of you Eliza and so is Grandma. We love and miss you all. Keep practicing swimming, I would like to see a gold metalist in the future. Your cousin Chris graduated college May 7th, 2009 in Elem. Education and I am very proud of him. You have fun at the pool and take some breaks.
