After getting to experience the American Girl doll store with our friends in March, we decided to let Piper pick out a doll on the day of her birthday. So Piper and I went on a Mommy/Daughter date back to the store for a little shopping. We made it clear this is a special occasion thing only! Otherwise, we'll go broke there! She had so much fun and chose a doll with long, curly hair and brown eyes (like her) and freckles (not like her!). She named her Flowerpatch but I do believe the name has changed a few times!
