My Real Life Baby Doll

Fifty years ago, Santa brought me a baby doll with a wooden cradle. When my folks moved away from my childhood home, it was one of the things I chose to save. It always has a quilt or a blanket folded in it, waiting for a chilly night.
Steve, Ash and Lexie stayed over the other night in order to leave early for the airport. Steve asked me if I had anything Lex could sleep in. I couldn't think of anything and suggested just piling some blankets on the floor. He thought of the cradle in my room. At first I didn't know what he was talking about, then we went in and looked. I supposed it would work...





hehehehehe, she barely fits. I guess I have come full circle from baby doll to grand baby!
