A first-hand glimpse into the life and antics of Miss Dana Jae, and her little sister, Eliza Joy.

Daddy took me to do chores with him on Thursday. He can't wait until I'm old enough to start helping him, and says that he wants me to be a milkmaid when I grow up. I'm not sure what that is, but I'm hoping it has something to do with bottles. I love bottles!
Meet my new friend Simon. He's a baby cow and he's 4 days old. I'm going to love him and play with him and he's going to come live in my house and sleep in my bed and we're going to be best friends forever and ever and ever...
My cousin Samantha came over last weekend to play with me. We had so much fun making Mommy and Daddy chase both of us in different directions while they tried to keep us out of trouble. (Little did they know we're just giving them a preview of what the next 18 years are going to be like.)
All that play time made Sammy and I very dirty little girls, so Daddy threw us in the tub. Sammy's so funny, she kept making a beard with all the bubbles. I hope I grow up to be just like her. Oh wait, I'm bigger than her already....
Here I am waving good-bye to our old floor. Mommy and Daddy are glad to see it go, but I might miss it a little. All the food I didn't like I could throw on it and it would stay camoflaged until Ike or Dexter found it. Good-bye Old Floor! Thanks for the memories!
Check me out scooting along our new floor! If you ask me, we should just keep the dining room table in the other room since all my food ends up down here anyway. It would save on Clean-Up time, which means more time for Play With Dana. I'll have to mention it to Mommy.
Since Mommy didn't have a stove to cook on Nana took us out to dinner instead. Everyone there was being way too serious, so I thought I would put on a show for them. I call it my "Ode to Indestructable Menu's". It involves alot of yelling and waving around of the menu. (A very dramatic piece.) I expect it should be picked up by a Hollywood production company relatively soon.
Dear Aunt Kimmie, thank you so much for my new toy. I've already learned to count to ten on it, even though no one seems to realize that I'm doing it. Mommy says she likes it because it keeps me occupied long enough for her to get some housework done without having to worry that I'm in the cupboards again. (Did you know that there are things called pots and pans in there that make alot of noise when you throw them on the floor? You should try it sometime.) I love you! Dana
Now that I'm mobile I finally get to play with the biggest toy in the house... Ike. I've been watching him for almost 10 months now, just waiting for the opportunity to pull on his tail, poke him in the eyes, and chew on his ears. I think we could become really good friends, if he would just sit still long enough to get to know me.
This is me just hanging out with no diaper on, one of my most favorite things to do in the world. Mommy and Daddy always try to make me sit on a mat, but I've figured out how to creep off of it when they're not looking.
This is my new baby. I'm not really sure what to do with her so I just throw her around alot. She hasn't broken yet, which is more than I can say for alot of my other toys. I guess I'll let her stick around awhile, as long as she doesn't try to steal my Fruit Puffs.
I'm three years old, and am a big sister to my one year old shadow, Eliza. I also have a dog, Dixie, who is both my best friend and my worst enemy; and a cat, Aslan, who makes a great wrestling partner.
