We had a birthday here today!!! *Four* It seem so BIG!!! So capable and ready, so curious and knowing, so wonderful!!!
As a mother I cannot help but think back to her birth day on this very special day. Oh how I fell in love with my very first, very perfect, rosy rosy pink skinned girl!!! If there is such a thing as love at first sight that was it!!! It was knowing myself on a completely new level. Mother filled me. I never knew there was something missing in my soul…but this was it…I was meant to be her mother. It was unexpected. It was new. It was overwhelming. It was perfect.
There was lots of unexpecteds it turns out. Like how such an enormous personality fit inside that tiny little body. But…oh it is bursting out all over!!! She is a spirited child if there ever was one. More intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and energetic. How truly amazing and wonderful to be her mother!!!
Some of my favorite glimpses into such a full and joyful life!!!!!

I also made a pillowcase using some fantastic vintage cotton and the same minky fleece that was used on the Bella doll. It was a very simple pillowcase with a large minky patch for extra soft sleeping!!!
