When you turn 5 in our family, Granny takes you on a trip to pick out your own American Girl doll. This years doll is Isabelle, a ballerina. She was a perfect fit for Reece. Reece talked about American girl for weeks before she actually went and she kept saying she wanted Saige. Saige was the girl of the year a few years before and we kept telling her Saige she would have to be prepared in case Saige was no longer available. We surprised her one morning by taking her to American girl for lunch. She had no idea where she was going but the minute she saw Isabelle in her ballerina outfit, she was hooked.
When she got home, she could hardly wait to play with her sister and her American girl doll, Makenna.
