My Baby Girl is 3 Today!

Jane woke up to a cousin birthday breakfast. Isabella and Ava ate with us before school. Will and Creighton were here for the fun as well before heading back to Texas. The only one missing was Nicolas! Jane requested fancy white donuts and her Mama delivered.
Jane's gift from us was Mary's highchair. Jane loves ALL things "Baby." She was super excited this morning. She made her baby a stick of butter and a hamburger patty for breakfast...tasty!

We celebrated Jane's Birthday with a few friends over the weekend...more to come on that!

Weekend O' Fun

We had family here this weekend to celebrate Jane turning 3!

It was crazy and busy...but loads and loads of fun.
Creighton was a little overloaded with girls....hence the borrowed girlie jammies.
They wore Papa out with pony rides...again and again!

Oh What a Difference...

6 Months Makes!

Jane's first experience at the dentist 6 months ago was far from fun. We went again yesterday and she LOVED it! She was all about the flavored gloves and the little vacuum that cleans her mouth. She sat there and giggled the whole time.

Ava was in her element. She got her 6 year old x-rays.

....Jane got hers...

....Good Times...

Both girls had a ride on the rocking zebra.....This place is "Over the Top"....THE BEST!

The cherry on cavities!
