Took Amy to Northpoint Mall for the very first time. Had to go to the American Girl store. When we went to China to get Amy, we actually took an American Girl catalogue as Anna thought Amy might enjoy looking at the dolls. She was right and Amy did indeed like it, in fact she carried it around with us a lot. It also came in handy on the long flights. Amy loved to look at it and turn the pages, all by herself....then roll it up and put it in her backpack. On the morning before we went to the mall, I had a talk with Amy that we were going to go see the dolls just for fun, but not bring any of them home with us that day. We would also play in the kid's zone, see "Build a Bear" shop and Disney store.
She did great. Of course had to touch everything in the stores but I knew that was a given. We stayed at the A.G. store for over an hour. Both girls enjoyed it very much and Amy kept saying "I lika the dollies!"
Her favorite doll had on glasses and ear rings. Maybe a birthday present in the future.
Yes, she still has her Italian accent. We love it. Don't know where the extra a's on the end of words come from.....but are so thankful her English is coming along amazingly well.
Did you know that American Girl dolls are made in China? Yes, they are.
