When you find yourself wanting cute little baby clothes...

When you find yourself falling in love with adorable little outfits for a baby-type doll, it is really hard to resist.  Especially when you discover your favorites on close-out sales!  These adorable outfits have been making their way into my orders, even when there was "no one" here to where them.  So, in July, I finally gave in and made arrangements to bring home an adorable, cuddly pair of twins.

Meet Jack:

And Jill:


Then, in August, my darling, almost 17 year old daughter, was cleaning out her closet (a huge undertaking - I rarely venture into her room), she brought her Bitty Baby to me and said that I could take care of her for her.  She brought me her suitcase, moses basket, feeding chair, and an assortment of clothes (I know there are more Bitty Baby clothes mixed in with her other AG doll clothes)!  I managed to remove a couple white marks from the bck of Bitty's head, fade an ink mark on her leg, and get her nice and cleaned up.  While DD named her Corolle baby (her first, which she is keeping in her room), Bitty Baby has always been Bitty.  So, here she is in a new outfit:

Bitty is about 15 years old, but still a wonderful, darling baby.

Then Tilly followed us home from Target on September 2nd. She is from Brazil. Originally, her name was Zelia, but she insists on being called Tilly.

Now known as Tilly

Here's the entire Hearts for Hearts group at our house.  Tilly, Tipi, Lila, Anita, Lisa and Dory.

Lila acts sweet and innocent, but she could barely stand still for the photo - she wanted to kick off her shoes and run barefoot through the grass.
