These little dolls have been quite a hit lately. Amanda and Ana will get them out when I'm nursing Tali. They also like to sit on these chairs and play with them while I'm cooking. They usually play with them nicely but when they start banging the dolls' heads on the chairs below their feet and laughing, I take them away.
Christiana is very partial to which doll she has. The only thing is that it's not the color of the doll's skin that matters. It's the outfit. She always wants the doll with the footed sleeper. If Amanda decides that she wants the "granilla" (vanilla) baby. I tell her to switch outfits and then Ana will take the chocolate baby.
The other day, the two little babies were lying on the living room floor. I walked out and told Mike, "We need a third baby." His eyes got a little big until I pointed to the floor. Tali has started to wanting a baby, too, and isn't satisfied with just another stuffed animal.
I'll have to find one with Amanda's skin tone. A caramel baby.
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
