New Toys

A few months ago, my mother-in-law brought over this little baby doll stroller for Anja. Anja loved it, in a way... but she wasn't too keen on the idea of sharing with her baby dolls. We let her sit in it herself until it started to break, then once when she wasn't looking we sneaked it off to a deep closet for another day.

This afternoon though, she was trying to push her baby dolls around the house in her own umbroller. It wasn't working so well, since she is so short. Until that moment, I'd completely forgotten about the doll stroller. I'm so glad I remembered it today. The look on her face was PRICELESS when I brought it out to her. And she played with it for the rest of the day. I'm not kidding when I say that she played with NOTHING ELSE. She'd put her doll in, have me buckle her, push her around the house, take her out and hold her, put her back in... admittedly, it was a repetitive afternoon for me, having to do all that buckling and unbuckling, but she was SO THRILLED to be pushing her baby doll. Eventually we went out front and she spent a good hour pushing her baby doll up and down the sidewalk. She was so happy. I hope she loves her little doll stroller as much tomorrow as she did today!

But before the stroller made it's second debut (is that an oxymoron?) I took some cute pictures of Greta.

I'm not sure why my pictures are showing up so grainy on blogger. It's kind of weird. They are not that fuzzy on my computer.

I'm just typing now to take up space so the pictures don't get jumbled up together when I post them on here. To the left you see Anja in her own stroller, parked next to "Cook Baby" in the doll stroller. Anja is reading a story to Cook Baby. Anja loves to read things stories. She reads to Greta, her dolls, her stuffed dogs... and sometimes she sits on the couch and reads aloud to herself and it is SO CUTE. Oh! And she's getting better at animal noises! She knows more than cat and dog now! She has added cow and rooster noises to her "vocabulary." Okay, now the Greta pictures.

Love the last pic of Greta.

And, um, Charles loves pushing toy strollers too. Okay well in his defense, he likes pushing anything on wheels. Those toy strollers just happen to be the perfect size, you know?! :o)
