Happy Birthday, Jane! I know you have never met me but, I am one of your biggest fans!!!

She looks like an angel in the white blanket picture :) She is a beautiful child, inside and out.

SO cute! Where would a family be without a Jane? I mean, I just can't imagine. Everyone needs a good Jane in their family, I say.

I love Jane....can I have a favorite? If so, I think its Jane. She is so adorable that I actually was wondering if you can ship her down to visit? Can she come stay with me and play with my cat and my dog and go to the beach and dress up and let me do her hair in funky braids and wear little tie-dye dresses with flowers in her hair.....

Ilene said...

This title is very Austen-esque.

Ah, Jane. She is so cute. I can't imagine being mad at her with such a smile and personality.

I would like to add that Jane is also an excellent care taker of my younger boys. And she will eat lots of grapes if you let her.

I can't believe you forgot to mention those very important traits!

Stacy said...

I think I have the opposite of hypertonosity - some folks call it "flabby" but not me. Happy Birthday, Jane! I just adore year 5.

Anisa said...

That muscley little body will be nice as an adult!

What a doll! Can't believe she's 5!

And potty training while being pregnant is one of the worst things a mother can do! I know from experience. I HATE potty-training! I'll soon be facing it with McKay. I like the idea of having Dad at home. Wonder how I could work that out?

diane said...

Love the crooked smile and the polka dot dress!

gab said...

To me, she looks like the perfect combination of you and your husband. Adorable! There is NOTHING sweeter than a five year old girl.

TexasTwinsTwice said...

That smile is ADORABLE!! I love how you phonetically spell the way she talks--it feels like I can HEAR her say stuff--so cute! =)

Lorena said...

Happy Birthday Jane!

(Could she look more like Emma in that first picture?)

Laurie said...

Happy Birthday! She is such a cutie. I think my Jacob has a crush on her, but don't worry, I won't let him become and internet stalker. :)

AMY said...

The first thing I noticed about Jane was her crooked smile... and how CUTE it was.

I remember her crawling around during sacrament meeting - it seems like it wasn't as long ago as it was!

aric & jess said...

We love all those things about Jane and the 500 other things that make her special.
