This last week on the 17th Jane turned two, in her words "I two" (said while holding up four fingers). We did a little family birthday party for her. Two year olds like to keep it simple, more accurately they don't know the difference yet.
Below is a picture of the kids with the books that Gabrielle, our surrogate grandma, brought over for Jane's present. Jane loves books, she can't get enough of them. She often will retrieve my attention by whirling a book at me and saying oh so sweetly "Book please." It is difficult to stay upset about being hit by a book after her sweet request to read the offending book. Jane is also great at her letters she knows most if not all of her letters and likes to point them out where ever we go.
We don't own many stuffed animals, they seem a bit useless to me. However Nelson loves his teddy bear and lately Jane has been loving on his teddy bear so I figured it was time for her to have her own stuffed animal. A little stuffed kitty pillow pet. She now sleeps with this cat along with her blankie and beloved binkie. (it is time to omit the binkie from that line up)
Jane is a joy. She has these beautiful blue eyes and long eye lashes. She is often content to just cuddle. She loves being sung too. She will often stop in the middle of a full blown cry session to a song being sung. She loves animals, as long as they are not too close. She looks out the windows through out the day to find squirrels and dogs. She is typically a good eater. She loves new people and loves to climb. Oh boy does she love to climb. No seatbelt is too tight for her to wiggle out of. Keeping her in the grocery cart is near impossible.
Here is a true shot of Jane in action. She loves to dress like her older siblings like she is going to school, she is so cute and I enjoy her a great deal. It is a good thing I enjoy her so much because she is my constant shaddow, following me from room to room. Never a dull moment. Love this girl! HAPPY 2 year old JANE!!!!
