Recently, it was Frances’s 9th birthday celebration, and it won’t surprise you to learn that she asked for a very special baby doll.
Categorized, I guess, technically, as a “reborn” doll — a hyper-realistic human baby representation — Abby Rose came from the Bradford Exchange.
She resembles a newborn baby so closely that, when we took her to Frances’s school to show her classmates, someone in the parking lot was truly shocked to discover that what I had been carrying was merely a doll.
Frances is very pleased with her choice.
(The pictures simply don’t do the doll justice.)
