American Girl!

We went on an early birthday trip for Lily Wen to Atlanta. All she wanted for her birthday this year was to go to this store so I took my American Girl to the American Girl boutique.
The anticipation...
Take the picture Mom....I'm ready to go in
She took her bitty baby DeeDee. The night before we went, I could hear Lily Wen talking to her baby and telling her about going to meet her sister. Little did I know that she was on her very own adoption journey. She knew exactly which baby she wanted and she had already named her, Rosey.
A forever family, Lily, Dee Dee and Rosey
The new Mommy
So I guess this makes me a Grandmother. I mean I am old enough to be a grandmother. I just didn't think that it would happen while my daughter was turning 6!
Yes, Rosey was taken care of even when her Mommy took a "break"
Lily Wen coming home dressed like her baby.
We got to stop and take cousin Caroline to dinner. FUN FUN FUN!

Awww -- that is so sweet! She looks like such a great Mommy to her two little girls! Makes me kind of wish we had an AG store nearby!

Hope you all have a great week!

We visited that very store not that long ago! Thankfully, Claire is still young enough so she didn't get too excited. We do have a Christmas surprise for her that we snuck out of the store! What a great way to spend a birthday!

How cute! So glad you had a great trip to ATL even if I didn't get to see you. :-(

We will one day!
