I remember the day Jane was born very vividly. Her due date had been April 18th, the Friday before Easter. As I was laying in bed that night, I told her she had better come out right then and there, otherwise she would have to wait until Monday. We had Easter plans scheduled all weekend that I (selfishly) didn’t want to miss. Sure enough, the weekend went by without a hitch, and on Monday morning, I woke up in labor. My Mom and sister Katie came to the house to watch Henry while Alex and I got ready to go. Through tears, I hugged Henry good-bye and told him I would see him soon. My labor progressed quickly (like it had for Henry) and Jane was born just five hours later.
Today, my Jane turns three. THREE! She is intelligent and curious and kind. She is independent and stubborn and strong-willed. She wants to do everything herself, and usually after only a few tries, she’s mastered it. Simply put, she is the best daughter I could have ever hoped for. We all love you so much and can’t wait to see all you’ll do in the next year!
