If I ever have a little girl,...


She will have an American Girl doll to play with! Gosh how I love American Girl Dolls. 
When I was a young child, my mom would buy me baby dolls and she would have to give them away or take them back because I wouldn't play with them. At some point I told her I wanted a bald baby and that is when I got Elizabeth. She was my first American girl doll. She looked very much like the baby above (different outfit) and I still have her and think she is a precious memento of my childhood. A sweet reminder of the innocence of youth. And for the time being she will continue to suffice as my baby... until I maybe have a real one, if I ever do. :)

(p.s. Handsome & Mom and Dad, no need to worry. I'm not baby crazy yet. Or I'll keep telling myself that.)

Aww, I too am a fan of American Girl dolls/Bitty Babies. I wished and wished for one, and then I finally got one for my 8th Christmas. She was cherished and over the next couple years I accumulated more 'stuff' for her. Now I have a Hope Chest full of American Girl stuff for my daughter!

Too cute! I was never much of a doll girl when I was little, but I adored reading the American Girl books. And I'm all about having things that suffice for unborn babies! What's the rush?!

Can you tell we haven't started baby making yet?

I am totally saving my American Girl Doll for a daughter I may have some day, Lord-willing. :)
