Little Mom


I'm breaking the rules a little bit by doing two Kylee posts in a row, but it's ok.  

She's cute like that...even with straight out of the bath hair.

This year for Christmas we splurged on a pair of Bitty Twins from the American Girl company for Kylee.   Actually, we used our insurance money because I had an American Girl growing up that was lost in the fire, but I couldn't replace her exactly because the girl I had is now retired (Kirsten) and I didn't want to buy just a random used one off of Ebay.  I wanted something nice for Kylee, which is what I would have eventually done with mine, but it seemed silly to buy a historical girl and store her for 4-5 years until Kylee is old enough.  So, we decided to give her boy-girl Bitty Twins instead.

Kylee hasn't always been the most gentle with her dolls so I was a little worried about buying such expensive dolls, but I shouldn't have been.  She has cherished these dolls up down left and right, even waking up in the middle of the night crying because one of them fell out of her bed or is otherwise missing.  She has a pair of pajamas that match Sarah's pajamas and for many mornings she carefully changed both her and Sarah's pajamas and folded them into her drawer and then dressed them both for the day.  At night she would reverse the process.  She doesn't play with Pokey (the boy) quite as much but she is always willing to share him with a brother who wants to play too.

But they aren't allowed to play with Sarah.

She is much too in love for that.  

I don't know what it is, but Pokey and Sarah have definitely brought out the little mom in my little girl.

*Anyone notice she gave her dolls 5 letter names in alphabetic order?  I swear I had nothing to do with it.  Good job, Kylee!

So cute! I love her choice of 5-letter names in ABC order!
