Haven got her first big girl doll a few weeks ago when she was going through the crying phase. She earned it for working hard one week and being a really good helper. She has taken her doll everywhere and I think it really helped with her separation anxiety. We even made them matching spring shirts. By the way, Haven's crying phase ended after a really tough 3 months. She is going places happily again and that makes all of us happy.
However, now whenever we go to the store she thinks we have to get new accessories for the doll and now Jovie has one too. They have been good little mamas for their dolls and I feel like I have two, new children to take care of.
