Babyland

Like how I'm just jumping back into blogging like I never stopped?  Yeah.   Me too...

My Mom has been planning this trip to Babyland, USA since I was 16 weeks pregnant and we found out I was having a girl.  It was a tradition for our Nanna to take us kids, and Mom (Madelyn's Nanna) wanted to carry that tradition on.  So last week, we took an adventurous trip with a two year old to place filled with baby dolls.  The whole thing is set up like a hospital with nursery's and babies everywhere!

You can tell from this picture just how distracted she was by everything going on!  You haven't lived until you've chased a 2 year old through a giant sized Doll store!

Just chilling with her girls!  Do you see the puff of curls on that one on the right? Squeee!!!


Mother cabbage giving birth to a new baby!
After being completely overwhelmed, picking out one baby and all associated accessories, she decided she wanted a different baby.  It was a really sweet selection process, she had to hug and kiss each one before saying "too big" or "no".  At the end of the time, she settled on a brown haired, blue eyed cutie.

We took her into an adoption room so that we could get Madelyn to focus on a name and settled on Mikayla Alice.  She calls her Alice.

All that shopping makes a girl thirsty!
Feeding Alice lunch of "mac cheese, beans, and tern" (corn)
Playing "where's Alice?"  A game she has played with her Grandaddy since she could sit up.
Of course Alice had to go shopping with us, because what's a road trip with Nanna without some shopping?

Overall we had a great time, by the end of our trip we were all three tired and silly.

I can't wait to do it again when she's a little older and can really understand what it is all about, and is a little less distracted by everything else.

It looks like you all had an amazing day! You know, just when I think Madelyn couldn't get any cuter, she proves me wrong. And the thought of hugging every one before deciding? Too cute!!!
