As you know I have absolutely fallen in love with making dolls of late. The kids have been so fascinated watching me create them and seeing these little people come to life. Henry especially, so of course I had to make him his own "baby." All day yesterday Henry watched as his little buddy came to life and he was so excited. This morning I woke up early to make his clothes so that I could give him to Henry as soon as he woke up. I decided to put him in soft flannel jammies and make him a "gummi" just like Henry's. Now for those of you who don't know Henry is a true little "Linus" and he drags his green blankie around with him everywhere. For some odd reason for which we have absolutely no idea why, Henry calls his blanket "Gummi", hmmm...???? But he also calls my Dyson "Gummi" go figure? It must mean something he just absolutley loves because those are his two favorite things!
This morning when I gave Henry his doll he was over the moon! This is what being a mom is all about. Making magic for your kids!!!
