BITTY BABY AND ME



Some little girls loved to play with BARBIES and some little girls loved to play with baby dolls. Some little girls HATED dolls and would rather be active and play with trucks and cars and sticks..... I was the little girl who loved playing wiht baby dolls. I rememeber when I turned 12 and it really was not too COOL to play with dolls, I sadly gave them up.... Thankfully I had a little sister who was 7 years younger and I could use her as an excuse to keep playing with dolls.... IF she would agree to play dolls with me!!!

Now as I start to prepare for Tate, I have started to gather DOLL stuff for her. These are things that I will be less able to afford when I start to pay daycare, clothing and food for Tate. I have always believed in quality over quantity and would rather spend $100.00 on an American Girl Doll, BITTY BABY instead of a bunch of dolls. Twinkle Toes and Sparkle both have tons of Bitty Baby clothes and a doll each as well as American Girls big girl dolls. This is one of the things these two cousins will look forward to playing with Tate. The beauty of Bitty baby is that you can order an Asian doll.... Black hair with Almond eyes. I want Tate to have a doll that she could be the mommie of.

Sandy had listed on her blog that American Girl was having a sale.... I had to buy these two outfits!!! Quality is amazing and cuteness goes way beyond cute!!!! Bitty Baby has not been bought yet but it is in the plans!!!! I will keep these and give them to Tate at either a birthday or Christmas when she is closer to 2 - 2 1/2 yrs.....

Whether of not Tate likes dolls.... at least I can use this excuse again to play with baby dolls!!!

I love Bitty Baby! Growing up I played with both Barbies and baby dolls. I also have a little sister that I used as an excuse to play when I was "too big"! L is NOT a Barbie or baby doll player. Maybe Ayden will be!

Eva has a lot of dolls and she really loves them... however, she is now becoming all about BARBIE!

Very fun! I have to start branching out and get Abbey some african american and caucasian dolls because I want her to know that she can be a mom to any baby she wants when she grows up and that families are about love, not ethnicity. I do think that having asian looking dolls are very important for self image. The clothes are great. When I taught preschool the kids loved it when I had a tub outdoors with water and soap for them to wash the doll clothes and hang them up to dry. We have lots to look forward to, don't we?
