Julia is a great reader! She was introduce to the American Girl series at Christmas this year by Rachie. She gave her several of the first books in the series so that Julia could decide on which girl was her favorite. She had Rebecca all picked out when we discovered "Meet Julie" a girl who lived in California in the 70's that had recently moved and was starting a new school. (Sound familiar?) She also has beautiful long blonde hair. So she checked that book out at the library and she was sold! Rachie got Julia the rest of the series for her birthday with the promise that she would take her to Chicago to the American Girl Store to get her very own Julie doll.
We took the train, a huge highlight for Julia, but nothing even was a comparison to how excited she was about getting her doll!
We found Julie!!
And we found her lots of her accessories... (something to use future birthday money to buy!!)
More Julie dolls
This is one very excited little girl...
And with Rachie!!
It was love at first sight!
We got home very late and Julia was very, very tired!!
One last very sleepy picture!!
