My baby is turning 4...

Four years has passed fast.  My bright, beautiful, imaginative girl is turning four in a week.  She asked me for a doll to be friends with the rag doll that I had made when I was a teenager that she plays with all the time.  That particular doll is named Lizzy and I had given it to my mother after I made it.  She saved it all these years and when I had Olivia, gave it back.  I scrounged the internet for the pattern and successfully found it and made a friend for Lizzy. This doll is unnamed.  I'll leave that honor to Olivia.  I hope she will enjoy her.  Olivia loves to imagine scenarios with her dolls and has a running dialogue with them most of the time!
