Victoria



A few weeks ago, my friend in real life made a post on her blog about her baby named Victoria. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at the pictures. I have Victoria! I LOVE Victoria. She was my very first baby. We had matching clothes. I carried her around by her leg until her leg fell off, my granny kept fixing her for me, and the leg just kept falling off.

So, Christy and her family came over to have dinner with us on New Year's Day. I asked her to bring her baby. Seeing her doll and my doll was enough to almost make me cry. I know that sounds corny, but she loves her baby too. She kept her all of these years just like me. So we got our baby dolls together and took some pictures. Her Victoria is wearing the blue dress. It was a dress that Christy wore as a baby. I went to my closet and pulled out a blue dress that I wore as a baby and it was almost exactly the same. (C.R.A.Z.Y.)

My Victoria lived with my Granny for a while when Jeff and I were young and moving around. When I got her back, my Granny had put her in this pink dress and matching bonnet. I have called my mom and asked her if she knows where Victoria's white dress with a pink bow is. I can almost guarantee that she has it in her cedar chest.

Who could know that one baby doll could give so many little girls so much love. I know that my cousins Codi and Niecie have Victoria. And I recently found out that our friend Betsy has her too.

Unbelievable. Thank you Madame Alexander for creating a baby for so many little girls to love. Thank you thank you thank you!
