When you're FaceTiming with Grandma and Grandpa, and they tell you they're giving you an American Girl doll for your birthday:
CC is over the moon! Grandma and Grandpa were on their world cruise when CC turned 6, so they hadn't given CC her gift yet. We gift-wrapped an AG catalog and let her open it over FaceTime.
Grandma and Grandpa are coming to visit in a few weeks, when they'll take her shopping and she can pick out which one she wants. In the meantime, CC has been bringing that catalog with her everywhere (even to bed), and poring over the options. Those first few days, she told me every ten minutes that she'd decided "for sure" ... on a different doll!
Now she's pretty much set on Number 63. It's one of the "Truly Me" dolls, and it's the one that looks most like her. But I won't be surprised if she changes her mind before the big day!
