Elizabeth - A.K.A. Bizzy

We were blessed with the birth of our first child, Elizabeth, born April 25, 2003. From the time she was born she demonstrated her ability to show emotion and compassion for everyone around her. She is now three and a half and quite a little princess. Our days with Bizzy consist of picking out the right "princess" dress and putting on our "princess" make-up (clear lip gloss but who is going to get picky at this point) and then telling everyone in the family the roles that they are going to play that day, i.e. prince, queen, king and for some reason AJ always ends up being the frog. Her most recent event in dressing up was finding my wedding accessories and using them to dress up as a bride (wedding princess as she called it). (See picture) As I am sure you can imagine, this absolutely broke my heart - she seems so grown up. She has quite the imagination and makes sure everyone knows what a little lady she is. She goes to preschool twice a week for several hours and I am sure that she wows her teachers with all of the royalty she claims to be related to. She also loves gymnastics as well - all part of being a little lady. I can not imagine what my days were like before she entered my life - she fills my heart with so much love each and every day. I only wish that everyone could have such a sweet little girl as our Elizabeth.

Yea! I'm so glad you got your blog up and going. I think you will find it quite addictive. I know I will check back often to see all of the great pictures you post!

I can't believe Elizabeth is so grown up already...I guess that's what happens when you don't see her in over 2 years though!

Great job on the blog!

we all know she is a princess :). She is just getting ready to marry her big boyfriend Adam when she gets to California(he he he!!). If we plan it just right maybe we can add to this royal family with our clan.

Love and miss you all and can't wait for you to get here!!!!

Oh my God, where do you find the time to do this with 3 small children. You are amazing!!! Just loved reading everything and can't wait to be filled in each day. You are right, Elizabeth is an extremely sweet little princess and I love her very much. I'm so proud of her and all her "big sister" skills.
Love and miss you all,
