What all the stylish dollies are wearing to pajama parties these days

Is anyone having a pajama party this summer? Because we’re properly attired and ready to go. Ro and Ree picked out matching babydoll and little mama nightgowns at the American Doll store. And the sight of the four pink-clad cuties having a PJ party just makes me giggle.

Ro’s dolly is called Teebali (pronounced tee-buh-lee) today. Ok…:DSC_6372LR_adobeRGB

Ree’s dolly is called Rachel today (I say “today” because the names change every day, and I just can’t keep up): DSC_6378LR_adobeRGBDSC_6398LR_adobeRGB DSC_6400LR_adobeRGBDSC_6433LR_adobeRGBDSC_6438LRDSC_6456LR_adobeRGB-2DSC_6458LR_adobeRGB

The oh-so-serious looks on the girls’ faces crack me up. They paste on those sober expressions anytime they’re taking care of their babies. Being a mama is quite a serious job, you know.

PS: Remember that you can always tell who’s who if you can spy the bracelets. Ro’s is on the right arm and Ree’s is on the left arm.

    Adorable with a capital A. The girls and their dolls made me smile! I love reading all of your posts and so enjoy all that you share! How totally cute are those pictures where they are snuggling their babies!?! Such precious girls. Thanks for the smiles today :)

    Oh my gosh. So cute. Didn't they have your size? :)

    I see the dollies are appropriately initialed on the bottoms of their feet.


  4. Seriously cute indeed. First off, I thought maybe your Mum had been working hard...again! :)

    such cute pics! hey, how is Ro's thumb doing? did you ever find out what it was and how to get rid of it?

    Just wondering. Love the AGD- did the girls pick the exact same ones?

    Glad to see you guys are enjoying summer so much!

  6. These shots are so adorable - I can't stand it. The 2nd to the last one of Ro is my all-time favorite. It's gorgeous. What an expression. Love them.

  7. So cute.....I see that the thumb is still causing issues though. What is up with that?

  8. Yes, can you believe it, Ree's thumb is STILL a problem. So frustrating!!! It was totally cleared up before Hawaii. And then it came back. The dermatologist thinks it's eczema, which I guess is never really cured. You just try to keep on top of it and try to avoid the triggers. Ugh. Have another followup appointment scheduled. The good thing is that it doesn't bug her at all - no itching, no pain, etc. But dang I wish we'd find something that would just clear it up. If anyone has any eczema tips, please let me know.

    Oh, and I should cop to a little mistake with the dolls. Before the American Doll trip I handed out the dolls and the girls dressed their dollies in outfits of their choice. And then took them to the doll salon and choose special hairdos (braids for Ro's doll, a headband for Ree's). And it wasn't until afterwards that I realized I had switched the dolls! So Ro thinks the doll with an M on the foot is hers and Ree thinks the doll with an R is hers. Shhhhhhhh. They haven't noticed, and I'm thinking both dolls will have matching bedraggled hairdos soon and I can switch them again. Hee!

  9. Cuteness overload! Our girls change their dolls and stuffed animals names too. This week their babies are Annie and Heena...whatevs!

  10. We have Kaya and Felicity. Kaya is the American Indian Doll and Sara chose the Colonial Williamsburg doll. They go with them everywhere!

    You won't like my suggestion on eczema: a purely lactose free diet for 2-3 weeks. If it doesn't help, then it's not lactose. If it does help, you can reintroduce yogurt and cheese, etc, but just avoid full glasses of milk. Just an idea...many of my physician friends have recommended it for us, and Kelly's skin cleared right up. She eats ice cream, cheese, etc...she just can't handle the lactose load in a glass of milk. It's HARD to cut it out, but I'm glad we tried.

    Good luck,

    Indiana Lori

  11. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  12. Holy Cow, I just caught up on your last few posts. You're covering the map well. When will you be in SLC, if your not already?- look us up, it would be great to connect, if you have a free afternoon...
    Adorable pics w/ their dolls!

  13. I love that they change the names daily, too funny!

  14. When my son had eczema we used a product called Eczemate. It worked quite well. It was a pain in the neck to put on as, unless they changed the formula, it was so thick you had to melt it with a hair dryer to apply it. BUT it worked....

    so cute!! i've been reading your blog for about 2 1/2 years now, absolutely love love love it!! just never commented before... i'm sure you've answered this before, but do you guys know if Ro and Ree are identical or fraternal twins?

    CHeck out ETSY. Great, affordable place to buy matching outfits for dolls and little mommies...

    Christy mama to Wen and Katilyn our AG doll...

  17. Love the cuteness!!!! I love how they flair at the bottom.

  18. Adorable as ever!! I love how serious they look caring for their babies. Hope they enjoy having a real baby in the house as much as their AGDs! Only 7 more sleeps!!!

  19. First I have to say a sarcastic thank you! My daughter already wanted an American Girl doll and she reads your blog with me. She is now insisting on owning one NOW! ;)

    ... As for eczema, I use dye-free, sulfur-free, perfume/alcohol-free cream cleanser for Alexandra's full body AFTER washing her hair ... and she even has her own hand soap. We apply a heavy cream lotion morning and night whether she needs it or not. ;) There are several brands that have lines specifically for eczema that are similar to what we use-- the sulfur-free part might not be necessary for you. But removing as many potential irritants as possible is a good idea...

    Reality Check: It isn't always easy to deal with! Alex doesn't like that the soap isn't sudsy and she sometimes gets frustrated with lotion time, but it is way better than the crusty/itchy/painful patches she used to get!

  20. LURVE IT!!!

    I think you explored a yeast problem on the thumb, have you tried a naturalist??
