Yes ... we really do own Bitty Baby ...

Yesterday June Cleaver and I took our girls to American Girl Cafe in Alpharetta. I had never been there and Babycakes was over the moon with excitement. We went to celebrate Curls' birthday and to spend a gift card Curls had received for her birthday. We own Bitty Baby and so we spent the early part of the morning dressing her and prepping her in her moses basket for the trip.

When we arrived at the store they immediately asked if we would like to chose an American Girl doll. I declined stating that we would like some new clothes for our Bitty Baby but we would not like to purchase anything else right now. They checked out Babycakes holding the baby in the moses basket and seemed a bit odd. I thought they would be a little kinder but they seemed off to me. I could never quite figure out why they were acting so weird.

We made our purchases, ate lunch and then departed. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I loved how cute the whole place was. They provide you with a seat for your baby at the table and even have hooks in the bathroom to hang your dolls on while you use the facilities. It was all painted in Blush and Bashful and Shelby would have been so pleased!

We were driving home and Babycakes asked me to dress her baby in her new clothes. I undressed the doll and then it hit me! We brought the wrong baby. They thought I was trying to pass off a Target baby in Bitty Baby's clothes. Holy crap!!! Little do they know we do indeed own Bitty Baby and just happened to dress the wrong baby that morning. No wonder they looked at me so oddly. I could not figure it out at the time. There were tons of other children there with their dolls that were buying new accessories. Why were they treating us so differently?

Now I get it ... and I must say it is too funny! But be sure the next time we swing in for a new look for Bitty Baby we will make sure we actually bring her!
