Well…we have tackled the Field Museum, Chinatown, Science and Industry Museum, shopping, deep dish pizza, dim sim, AND……American Girl store! Do you know how long I have waited to shop at the American Girl store with my daughter? I have longed to over pay for dolls for years! They have taunted me for nearly a decade by sending me their catalogs full of girly cuteness at premium prices. I tried to talk Gabe into a boy bitty baby twin, but he never wavered at his dislike of dolls. Now today I entered girlie heaven with my three oldest children, but most importantly my oldest daughter! We both had smiles on our faces! The anticipation was intense! Which doll would Elle choose? The possibilities were endless! Would she choose a historic doll, a just like me doll, or a Bitty Baby? Drum roll please…..she chose the Bitty Baby girl twins with dark hair and almond shaped eyes. One she will give to her baby sister, Mae Mae. She is such a sweet girl!
The boys weren’t that excited about the experience. Carsten quickly found a comfy couch for him and Gabe to lounge on, and to wait for Elle’s big decision.
