Happy Birthday Faith

Yesterday was Faith's 7th birthday. I can't believe it's been seven years since I had my little 10lb baby girl. :) I remember being so excited to have a little girl. The day the ultrasound tech said she "thinks" it's a girl, I ran out and bought pink clothes and bows! She was my little doll. I loved to dress her up and do her hair. (still do) I think she was maybe a couple hours old and I was trying to figure out how to stick a bow in her hair with tooth paste. In the hospital that night after having her, I sat up just holding her, looking at her, and dreaming of doing girly things with her. She is everything I ever wanted. I never dreamed someday I would have three little girls!
For Faith's birthday she wanted to go to American Girl Place. We had grandma watch the other kids while daddy and I took her down to LA for a day at American Girl. We let her pick out a doll (ouch!) trust me I tried to talk her into the "knock off" at Target but after all it was her birthday and she chose to have the doll instead of a party. We spent a good hour or two walking around the two story store. The store has a doll hospital, doll salon, cafe and not to mention every accessories you could think of. It's every little girls dream. Then we took her to a nice lunch at the Grove and it just so happened to be the day of the American Girl movie premiere. (good planning on my part haha) We really had no idea but it ended up being such a fun day. Even daddy admitted to having a good time. On the way home I said, " just think we will get to do this with Farrah and the baby too!" He just looked at me and rolled his eyes.

Looking for a doll that looks most like her

so excited

The doll salon $20 and up to get your dolls hair done. No thank you! I told Faith I could do any style she wanted. I would do matching hair for free:)

Wait...daddy more shopping upstairs!

Shhhh! Don't tell my girls about the store! They love just looking at the magazines and websites!

It looks like you had a fabulous day! I was excited just seeing all of the activity-I can't imagine all of the excitement of being there :)

7 is a great age!

I envy the three girls. I had hoped that my last would be a girl since my youngest girl is 8....but I see that God had a plan. He didn't want my little one to be lonely, so he has two older brothers to play with...and be crazy...and loud :)
