emma's baby

We try to keep "baby" in Emma's crib.

But sometimes the baby escapes the crib and comes along with us.

Emma has become pretty attached to baby. If she could have her way baby would come everywhere us. You know the nasty grocery store carts, church, Grace's school, speech, etc. Thankfully I can usually persuade my 19 month old that baby would rather stay in the car. And in those cases she usually asks to bring her lovey in. (Which I usually let her - oh and yes you caught me - she has a baby AND a lovey she has to carry around everywhere we go - as if I don't have anything else to carry-thankfully we do have 6 loveys in case one goes missing or is in the wash!)

The problem - baby was on the verge of loosing an arm. So naturally I headed to Toys R Us where baby came from and of course no babies like the baby we have. They only have the boy bear that is the same kind/brand, but of course its blue and a bear so it wouldn't work.

So today I decided to repair baby. I though it would easy. WAY wrong. You see the arms are made of ribbon that has frayed a bit. So sewing it back was no fun. I could hardly squeeze it under the foot to sew it. But for now baby is repaired.

And I'm on a mission to go to every Toys R Us and look everywhere online and buy us another baby - or two. You know just in case it happens again.

And so everyone can make fun of my sewing job - here is the beloved baby. I was able to bribe Emma with another baby while her baby was being washed and repaired.

So, you're pretty much an awesome mom. I decided on that for you.

My mom did the same thing with "Pup" multiple times. And re-sew his head (apparently I'm a violent sleeper) and his arm.

I think it looks awesome. I don't even own a sewing machine, and just tried to sew on a button for Jack! HA HA! Emery is in trouble!

Looks like you did a great job fixing it! Success!

Lila Grace has the same baby in her crib and I can see her in the monitor leaning over the baby trying to claw her eyes out...I think she thinks its real!

Looks good from the picture. Maybe you can find another.

Do you know the brand and what the actual name of the doll is? If so, go and search. I use it all the time and it's a pretty awesome site. Hope this helps! You're such an awesome Mommy!

Lisa, Hi again. I looked on and came up with this. I'm not sure if you are willing to order it online but here it is on the fisher price website.

Hope this helps a little! : )

I remember when my favorite doll had to be "repaired". I think you did a great job! I read you're running post! I think it's awesome you are doing White Rock. I wish I could do both it and The San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll, but I guess I'm going to run it a month before your race. I hope your training is going well! Have a wonderful weekend!

Mom's are meant to fix boo-boo's.
Some time times its a thread and needle, sometimes it's a hug, a band aid, or evan an "I'm sorry".
Keep running, and keep us updated on Christine's statuts with breast cancer. My positive thoughts are with her.
