I couldn’t resist and could not wait any longer! Even though most dolls start for children ages 24 months an up, I felt GG was mature enough to appreciate a doll. I had waited my entire momhood to be able to buy a doll for my baby girl. So I picked up a “starter” doll that didn’t seem too heavy from Target. First off, imagine that they have “starter” dolls that don’t come with all the peeing crying bells and whistles as the other doll options. Perfect.
I bring it home, call GG over and show her the box. She immediately gets excited and starts to do a little dance and shows excitement as I struggle to untwist the ties binding her tiny doll hands and feet to the box she called home since being packaged and shipped to Target from China. Poor Penelope, my name for her (ha), was probably eager to get out too.
GG figures out quickly that the toy pacifier goes into the hole in the baby’s mouth. Too cute. She hugs her new doll and seems interested in it …er for like 12 whole minutes! ha!
What I did find cute and quite endearing was later that night she and I were hanging out in the basement while her daddy watched the Boob Tube and I pointed out how Penelope was laying on the floor lonely. GG gets up, grabs her doll and then sits it neatly in front of her dad to watch TV with Daddy! She then toddles back to continue playing with me! I thought that was the cutest thing ever!Over 9 million people have enjoyed Bellyitch's Award-winning Celeb "bumpwatch" pregnancy and parenting blog. Trying to Conceive?
