The One with Jane at 3!

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Jane is 3 today! I absolutely cannot believe it was three years ago today that she came into the world, much much much faster than I expected - she was ALMOST born in the car! You can read her birth story here - I'm fascinated with birth stories, maybe you are too :)
I like doing these questionnaires - I mostly filled it out myself, but next year hopefully she'll be able to answer them herself:

What is your favorite color? Purple
What is your favorite toy? My Little Ponies
What is your favorite food? French fries
What is your favorite show? Lizards (Oscar's Oasis)
What is your favorite game? "birthday" (?)
What is your favorite snack? Jelly Bellys
What is your favorite animal? Cats
What is your favorite book? Princess of the Potty
What is your favorite song? Humpty Dumpty
What is your favorite holiday? Halloween
Who is your best friend? Fox
What do you like to do outside? Anything to do with water
What is your favorite drink? Dr. Pepper
What do you want for dinner? French fries
What do you like for breakfast? An assortment of cereals
What do you want to be when you grow up? Fox
She is definitely a challenging child and tests my patience nearly every minute of every day. She is spirited, strong-willed, stubborn, loud, burps in public louder than my mom, says "no" a million times a day, spits, hits, punches, doesn't eat anything except french fries, will not give up her pacifier, makes the biggest messes I've ever seen, refuses to go to nursery on Sundays... Sigh. Gotta love her. On the flip side, she still loves cuddling, takes a 2.5 hour nap, loves being read to, sings songs often, has the sweetest little voice, goes to sleep super easily, loves her mommy to pieces, and could play all day.
This has NEVER happened before! She had woken up pretty early and fell asleep watching a show on my computer.
We celebrated her birthday a few days early because we were going to be on the cruise on her actual birthday. It really confused both the kids when we woke up on her birthday on the boat and said Happy Birthday. Fox was like 'Jane gets two birthdays?!' Her first birthday we spent in the hotel when we moved to Germany, her second birthday was fun, and her 3rd birthday was on a boat.
A day in the life of Jane:
7am - wake up
7:15am - eat breakfast, some kind of cereal
8:30am-12:00pm - run errands and play with Mommy
12:00pm - lunch. She loves Taco Bell and "chicken, fries, and brown sip," usually from Charley's.
1:30pm - nap time!
4:00pm - play with Fox
5:00pm - dinner
6:00pm - play with Fox, watch a show
6:30pm - bath time!
7:00pm - popcorn!
7:30pm - bed time!
We just started potty training and she's doing great at #1, but #2 is a whole other ball game. She starts preschool in a few weeks and I'm so excited to see how she likes it!

Happy 3rd birthday Jane! Love you!


  1. Happy Birthday to Jane and mum!

  2. I sure do love her! Super cute pictures! Happy Birthday, Jane!

  3. She burps louder than your MOM? Who's your mom? ;-) How gross!

    Did you get a new rug?
