Jane Scarlett is three! She is sweet, thoughtful, bossy, stubborn, and musical. She has a great sense of humor and has already mastered the art of, "Just Kidding!" She loves her sister and is very much a mother hen, not only to Kate, but to all of us. She knows what she wants. She knows how things should be done (ha!). She loves all her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins soooooo much. She expresses concern for others. She is very possessive of her alone time with especially grandma, but also me and John. She loves to help John outside. Like, as soon as he polishes a section of his car, she slops more soapy water on it to help him out. Or when he stands on a ladder, she stands at the bottom and shouts, "BE CAREFUL, DADDY!" Or when he plants a flower, she dumps 46 gallons of water on it. And he truly loves having her help. She also knows about clothes matching. If I try to throw a garbage outfit on her because we're not going anywhere, she often informs me that the pieces simply don't work together. She had a scary dream about cats last night. She hardly eats anything. She's a really bad dancer. We love her. So much.

We had an octopus party with a hilarious octopus cake. And candy galore.

Kate (10 months), Holly (17 months), and the birthday girl.

Kate thought the presents were the greatest. Especially this one with pom-poms on top. How do you spell pom-poms???

She couldn't keep her fingers out of the frosting. I didn't care.

Let's just pretend she doesn't have a curler in here hair in this picture.

Can't believe that little stinky is three.
