Ava has always been a little more attached to dolls than Carli ever was. Most recently she has a favorite doll, which she has named "Baby." I am pretty sure that "Baby" is the doll Grammy gave Carli when Ava was born. So maybe that is why the two share such a special bond. Yesterday morning, "Baby" helped Ava eat breakfast, get dressed, pick out her shoes and even had her teeth brushed before Ava convinced me to let her bring "Baby" to school.
Last night after getting the girls to sleep, Ava started crying out and I thought she was crying "Momma, Momma" but when I got in there, she was crying "Baby, Baby." "Baby" had gotten lost amongst one of the three blankets Ava has to sleep with - once I found her, Ava grabbed her, cuddled close and was fast asleep. Too cute!
