Charlotte's New Doll

I initially thought of calling this post "Welcome to our Family, Baby Stella."  But it's late and I sadly could not come up with anything funny or witty much past that.  So I figured "Charlotte's New Doll" was much easier to work with. 

For no particular reason, I woke up one morning a few weeks ago determined to find Charlotte a baby doll.  I'm still not quite sure how we made it this long without one.  But I felt like it was time.  So, one day after work, I dropped by the Navy Exchange toy section to see what I could find.   As I'm standing there looking at the wall of baby dolls (which apparently all cry and poop), I think to myself, "um...where are the yellow babies?" 

I went to Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us...and nothing seemed to fit the bill.  Toys R Us did have Asian-looking dolls but they just scared me.  I wanted something simple, plush, and that didn't talk when you walked by it.  After a bit of searching online, I ordered Baby Stella (with black hair) by Manhattan Toys

I must admit, I'm happily surprised and how well Charlotte and baby Stella are getting along.  Fingers crossed that they have a long and beautiful friendship.  :)

Here are some photos of Charlotte reading baby Stella The Very Hungry Caterpillar

And I think this is my favorite.  I said to Charlotte, "SMILE!"  This is the face I got.  I think she looks slightly Klingon. :)


  1. Adorableness!!! How cute is she?!

  2. So sweet! We have a baby Stella at our house too! (Lindsey is almost 4 and still loves her Stella - along with all the cute clothes that she can wear!)

  3. Ok, she is just the cutest!!!

  4. Thanks for the lovely comments, ladies. And Cyndee - so good to hear that Lindsey still loves her Stella. I'm hoping Stella has some similar staying power in our house. :)
