"...the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." 1 Nephi 3:7
Happy Birthday, Blossom! I hope it is your first of many happy, sweet celebrations. K- everything looks wonderful. Such a beautiful job of making sure the day was special, not only for Blossom, but all your girls.
I also wanted to let you know that when she was with us, we had an Asian baby doll for her. The fact that you got her a baby doll for her birthday and she plays with it is a sign of progress, K. When she had the first one, she had no idea what to do with it. She liked Barbie type dolls, but baby dolls that you cuddle and feed and dress- no idea. In fact, when we were packing up her things, she said she didn't want it. So now that she wants a baby doll and "nurtures" it- I think it's a really great sign.
Yes, she doesn't really know how to take care of her baby doll yet, but she is learning from her little sister and me. Her behavior clearly indicates that she wasn't loved and nurtured, so it's taken the last two months for Blossom to observe Jie Jie with her own doll and see what one actually does with a baby doll. I did have a deliberate plan in getting her a doll that is life-like and looks so much like her. She thinks she's playing, but I know she's also learning.
