Me And My Dolls- Looking Back

I was thinking today about when I got all of my dolls and what a joy it was to open up each one. Then I thought it would be fun to share with you some pictures of when I first got each of my dolls! Enjoy :)

This is the only picture I have of me and Felicity (when I first got her). I took a magazine picture with her and it is very treasured to me. I got her February 24th 2008- 3 days after my 9th birthday :)

The same year I got Felicity I got a Bitty Baby who I named Elizabeth (But it practically got changed to Beth). I didn’t ask for her, but I love her so very much! My mom got her for me because she looks like me when I was a baby :) I got her for Christmas 2008.

On February 21st 2010 (my 11th birthday!) I got the set of Bitty Twins that I wanted so bad! I didn’t think I would get them because we just couldn’t afford it, but my mom found a way to make it happen! I was so surprised and happy to receive them! I decided to name these two Caleb and Kendra- my sweet and feisty little twins- hehe! 😀

On Christmas of 2010 I was surprised once again by a “Bitty!” I opened up my *Star gift* to see an adorable Bitty Boy all wrapped up in a blanket and wearing footie pajamas and a blue beanie. I named him Jeremy and I love him so much!

February 21st 2011- my 12th birthday- I bought my very first doll! After lots of thinking and flipping through the catalogs I knew that Rebecca was the one for me! Rebecca is so special to me and will always have a place in my heart. One of the things that I think makes her special is that the day after I got her- I got sick. I couldn’t play with her or do anything with her, so she was a comfort to me during that time. I held her and had her with me all the time and would try to at least do little things with her like changing her clothes or doing her hair.  I love Rebecca so much :)

On October 11th 2011 I bought another doll- and that was Kanani. When I saw her in person (when I bought Rebecca) I knew I had to get her as well. She is so beautiful and I just love her sweet face and long, gorgeous hair! I am so happy to have her!

 On Christmas of 2011 I got Marie-Grace! It was such a debate for me trying to decide if I wanted Marie-Grace or Cecile. Finally I just told my mom “I don’t know who to pick and I love them both, so surprise me!” Although deep down I knew it was Marie-Grace that I wanted and my mom could tell as well. It wasn’t much of a surprise to open her- more of an excitement and happiness- knowing that I finally have her! And although those PJ’s are too small for me now, it was so much fun to match with her! I love my little girl :)

February 21st 2012- my 13th birthday- I bought my second set of Bitty Twins! I looked at them in the catalogs so much during the time I was saving for them. I couldn’t stop looking at them! They were just too cute! I would sit at my computer desk or at the kitchen table, look at the picture of them, and write down name ideas. My mom kept on suggesting Mickey and Minnie and I kept saying no. I decided to name them Joshua and Jasmine, but my mom said Mickey and Minnie so much that I actually grew to like it! And now when I look at them I think “They do not look like a Joshua or a Jasmine!”
Mickey and Minnie are the sweetest little things! I love them so much!

February 21st 2013- my 14th birthday- I bought Saige!
When I saw the very first picture of her (I think someone got her early for a review or something) I didn’t think she was cute at all! She seemed so boring! But when I saw AG’s picture and saw what she really looked like- I just about died! I fell in love with her right away and knew that I wanted to get her!
I love Saige so much and she is just so beautiful!

June 24th 2013- I bought my very first MAG doll and named her Annika!
I don’t actually know what made me start looking at the MAG’s, but when I was I was looking for one that looked like me. The one that matched me best was cute, but I liked Annika much better! She is so gorgeous and her hair is great- it’s a lot like Saige’s actually! I love my girl :)

Sadly I do not have pictures of me with each doll that I got. We are missing Kirsten, Caroline, and Janie. I wish I had pictures with them to look back at :(

Well, I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to tell me about when you first got your dolls, too! I’d love to know :)

    WOW! After writing that down I feel SOOO blessed That I got a doll 07 and 08 and then again 2012 and 2 dolls in 2013!! Wow! Cute pic’s! I bet I have a pic of susan,linda and kit somewhere on the comp. seeing as we take pic’s on b-days and holidays.
    ewere

    • Aw, that’s awesome! :)
      Thank you!
      Yeah, we usually do, too, but my mom (quite surprisingly) didn’t take any pics last Christmas! It’s sad, too because it was a great family Christmas :(
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Wow, you have a lot of pictures of when you first got your AG dolls! I don’t have that many, I have one when I first got Cecile, and maybe one when I got Julie, and I might have one when I got Saige, or a month or two afterwards, but I wish I had more :(
    So Janie is a BT, right?
    Well, you’ve probably heard all my stories about when I first got my dolls, but I think my favorite is Mollys.
    My mom had just asked me if I wanted the two dolls in front of me. I looked at both of them, and the blonde doll was in GUC, but the brunette wasn’t, so I said that I just wanted the blonde one. But my mom didn’t hear me and asked me to repeat it, then I just blurted out that I wanted both of them, so Molly came home with me, and I’m so glad she did! I can’t imagine my doll house without Molly in it! :)
    ~Carli

    • I do! I didn’t even notice until I got them all together!
      It’s crazy to look at the first picture of me and Lissie- and then the last pic of me and Annika- and just see how much I’ve changed. I can’t believe I’ve been collecting AG for over 5 years! :)
      Aw, well be happy that you at least have some- I do wish I had pics with all of my dolls, too though :(
      Yes, I got her May 29th 2012 I believe. Not sure about the year, though. I’ll have to do some research on that 😉
      Hehe! I probably have- I know I’ve heard about Kanani and maybe Cecile, but not sure about the rest :)
      What does “GUC” stand for? Sorry, I can’t figure it out!
      Aw, that’s so sweet! So, were you looking at Emily and Molly, then? And then you decided on Molly?
      Aw, I know just how you feel :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • I know, I saw a picture of my friends and I when we first moved into this house last year in may, and we look SO much differant! One friend was WAY shorter than me then, and now he’s almost as tall as me! Yeah, I know, it’s hard to believe that Liz has been collecting for 10 years!
        Yeah, I know I have one of Saige, since my mom took a picture of me with her a while ago I think, and I know I have one of me with CeCe in the box, and that ones of me and my dad, and it’s possible that I may have one with me and Julie, but I kinda doubt it. This year, I’m going to tell my mom that the next time we go to the AGP I want her to take as many pictures as she can without driving me crazy! 😀 😛
        Oh okay, and she is technically Jeremy’s twin, but you didn’t get them at the same time, so they’re not twins right? Sorry if that souinds confusing 😛
        Oh well I just told you Molly’s, but with Kit I found her on Ebay in 2008, and I payed for her with my own money, and a few days ago I just found out that she’s a Pre-Mattel Kit, which means she was made by the Pleasant Company instead of Mattel, so she and Abbie are both collecters items! The blessings of Ebay… 😛
        And with Julie I got her at the AGP in Seattle for my B-day, and with Saige I ordered her and she came on the 15th of June 😀
        Oh it’s okay! It’s an ebay term, it means Great Used Condition 😉
        No, I was looking at Molly and Abbie, my JLY, and at first I just wanted Abbie, but then I decided to get Molly too 😉
        :)
        ~Carli

        • Yeah, it’s crazy to look back at old pictures and see how different we look :)
          Oh, wow! I didn’t realize that! That is amazing! 😀
          Well, it’s good to have some pictures 😉
          LOLOL! You mean her driving you crazy by taking tons of pictures of you? I know what you mean! 😛
          Hehe! It’s not confusing! Yes, that’s right. I got Janie last year and I got Jeremy in 2010- so it would’ve been wierd to all of the sudden make them be twins 😀 😛
          Oh, that’s cool! Hehe! Yes, indeed 😀
          How cool! We both got a new doll in June! I got Annika June 24th 😀
          Oooh, ok! Thanks :)
          Oh, I forgot about Abbie! Have I seen her? I can’t remember 😛
          ~Jaclynn~

          • I know, it’s kinda strange to think about it!
            Yeah, ten years… and all that doll stuff! But Hope collects AG stuff too, so that doubles the amount!
            Yeah, which is funny, I usually drive her crazy with the camera, but when we’re at the AGP, I’m on a mission… to find… the perfect doll stuff. Hehe! 😀 😛
            Yeah, I didn’t get Abbie and Kit at the same time, but I didn’t really play with Kit until I got Abbie and Molly, and then I made them twins, so it worked out for me! 😀
            😀
            Oh yeah, that’s right! We got them a week and two days apart! 😀
            You’re welcome! :)
            No, I don’t think you have, I’ll give you the link:
            http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1688/uid/86
            She’s MAG #27 only she has non removable star earrings 😉
            Oh and you said when you got Annika, there was a doll that looked more like you but you liked Annika better, which doll was that?
            ~Carli

          • I know! That’s so crazy! I don’t think Hope is as in to AG as Liz, though. But she does have A LOT of stuff!
            LOLOLOL!! That’s funny! 😀
            Oh, I remember you saying that Kit was twins with someone! That’s cool!
            I know! It’s so cool! 😀
            Oh, my gosh! She is really cute! I love her!
            Ok, I really need to look at some more MAG’s now! There’s already 2 that I kinda want 😛
            Yes, here’s the link to her:
            http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1699/uid/86
            It’s the coloring of her that looks like me. The hairstyle is off, she doesn’t have freckles, and I don’t have bangs. So, yeah. I liked Annika a lot better!! 😀
            ~Jaclynn~

  • I got my baby doll when I was really young. But she isn’t AG. I got my Life of Faith doll(Elsie) when I was 9. I got her for my birthday. :) And I got Josefina last Christmas!! :)
    It is amazing to me that you don’t have any pictures for some of the dolls! We take pictures of almost everything like that. 😉
    ~Christina Homeschooler
    P.S. We just got back from a tiring trip.
    I think GUC means great used condition. :)

    • Oh, really? I didn’t know Josefina was that new! That’s so cool! 😀
      Well, Kirsten was a late Christmas gift from my grandparents- I got her in May and she came in the mail, so we didn’t really think of taking a picture. And then Janie my mom got me for like $10 on ebay, so that one was a surprise! And then Caroline I got for Christmas last year and we (surprisingly) didn’t take one picture while we were opening presents! So, that’s really sad :(
      ~Jaclynn~
      P.S. Really? Where did you go?
      Oh, ok! Thanks for letting me know! :)

      • Oh, you didn’t? hehe! Now you do!! 😀
        Oh. I guess so. So I suppose you didn’t have a camera? Cause I take pictures of everything!!!:D
        Ten dollars!!!? That’s pretty cheap!! :)
        Oh, yeah, that is sad. :(
        P.S. Well, we went to Arkansas to bring my brother(the younger of my two) to college. It was a loong drive. And also, before that, we went to Richmond, VA to bring my oldest sister home(she had an internship). Those trips were really close together(2 days in between).
        You’re welcome!! :)

        • Hehe- Yes, I do! 😀
          No, we always have cameras- we just forget to take pics sometimes. And last Christmas was really fun while we were opening presents, so I think my mom just forgot about taking pics 😉
          Yeah, it was a great price! :)
          ~Jaclynn~
          P.S. Oh, wow! That sounds exciting! But then again- you said it was boring- LOL! 😛

          • Oh, okay. Oh, that’s funny. 😉
            ~Christian Homeschooler
            P.S. Well, I guess, but it was like, 13 hours. And two of my sisters were sick. 😛 And it wasn’t so great being there, because I didn’t belong-you know what I mean? Plus, I got a bunch of mosquito bites. But, besides all that, I guess it was great. 😛 😀

          • Oh, yeah- that’s a long time to be gone! Aw, that’s so sad! I hope they’re feeling better now :)
            Yes, I know what you mean. It’s sad :(
            Yucky! I hate mosquito bites! *shiver* LOL! 😀 😛
            LOLOL! Yeah, I think it sounds like a great trip 😛
            ~Jaclynn~

  • OMGOSH!!! THAT IS SO CUTE!!! (THE FIRST ONE) well and the others too!:)

  • wow! You’ve always had LONG hair!

    • Hehe- Yes, I have! I have never cut it once- only little trims at the ends 😉
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Maybe I should do that! I had it down to my elbow and without thinking got it cut! My family likes it the way it is now which is about an inch past my shoulder but I like it longer better the shorter! Wow! That was a LONG rant about my hair! LOL

        • Oh, no! That’s so sad!
          Hehe! I would actually like my hair a little shorter. I think it would be easier to handle and it wouldn’t get in the way as much 😛
          LOLOL! That’s ok! 😀
          ~Jaclynn~

  • Who is Janie?

  • I really like those hats on Mickey and Minnie-they are so cute!! I think that any other color wouldn’t look as good. :)
    I also really like that first picture. Something about it I really like. :)
    ~Christian Homeschooler
    P.S. Do you have a camera of your own?

    • Thank you!
      Well, they look really cute in red, too! 😉
      Thanks! I like that one a lot, too :)
      ~Jaclynn~
      P.S. Well, sorta. I have a camera that uses batteries, but I don’t use it anymore. I use my mom iPhone 😉

  • No she’s not, but you’re right, she still does have ALOT of AG stuff!
    Thank you! 😀
    Yeah, so that’s the MAG she’s twins with, and you can tell they look alot alike. Except for the freckles and hair length!
    It is cool! 😀
    Thanks! I think so too :)
    Oh really? That’s cool, I haven’t looked at any MAGs for a while, but I might have to look at some too! What ones do you want?
    OMGosh! She lookes JUST like me only I have side bangs instead of bangs!!
    But I like Annika alot better too 😀 😛
    ~Carli

    • Yes, she does!
      You’re welcome!
      They do look alike- They could definitely be twins 😀
      Here are the links to the MAGs that I like:
      http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1691/uid/86

      http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1690/uid/86

      http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1682/uid/86

      So, what do you think of them? I’m not saying that I like WANT them, but I think they’re really cute!
      Really? That’s so funny! Now I know what you look like! Hehe! 😀
      Yeah, same here :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Yeah, they could, a few girls asked but I’m pretty sure they’re 3 years apart, but they do look like twins!
        They’re all REALLY cute! The first one my cousin actually has, and I think that’s MAG 24, but she doesn’t play with her anymore, which I think is kinda sad, she just sits on a chair in her room :( But I keep hoping she’ll give it to me, but I think that’s kinda doubtful 😛
        The second one I like, but I’m not crazy about her, you know?
        And the third one is one I LOVE, she’s one of my favorite MAGs! And I think she’s MAG 33, but I’m not sure, can’t remember 😛
        Hehe! Yeah, but I think I look a little bit more like this MAG:
        http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1686/uid/8
        Only I have side bangs, and this doll matches my skin coloring better. But I like this MAG better:
        http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1687/uid/86
        I LOVE the Josefina face mold! 😀
        ~Carli

        • I thought so, but I just wanted to check 😉
          Oh, really? I think she’s cute, too! Awwwww!! That is heartbreaking! I’ll take her! LOL! 😛
          I think she’s cute- I love her coloring 😛 She actually would be my sisters MAG! She looks so much like her!
          Mine, too! I think she’s so adorable! 😀
          Aw, those ones are cute! I like them :)
          Yeah, her face mold is really cute! 😀
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yeah that’s kinda what I thought :)
            LOL! I’d give her to you, but you’d have to come all the way up here just to get her! And I’d have to take her out of my cousin’s house without her seeing me! Or I could just send it too you, but then I’d still have to figure out how to get her out of my cousins house! LOL! Is that the doll you want next, or do you want a differant doll?
            Oh really? I haven’t seen anyone who looks like that doll! Oh wait, I take that back, I think I have. I’ve seen a girl just like her! She was holding that doll, and they were wearing matching outfits… in the cataloge… 😛
            She is! She reminds me of an Irish girl for some reason. I can see a girl that looks just like that doll standing on a cliff overviewing the Irish beach… and I hope I get her someday, I don’t know what I’d name her though…
            Thanks :)
            Yeah, I like it better than the face mold on the other doll.
            ~Carli

          • LOLOLOL!!
            Oh, I don’t know! I just think she’s really cute! I love her coloring and her freckles! Can you tell that I’m obssessed with dolls who have freckles?? 😀
            Like I said before, though. I don’t really WANT one right now I just like some. It’s not like I’m gonna ask for any of them right now, though. I’m not ready for a new one just yet. I need to let Caroline, Saige, and Annika be my new babies for now :)
            LOLOL! You are so funny!!
            Same here! I think that’s partly the reason I like her! I love Irish dolls! They are just too cute!
            Oh, you want her, too? 😀
            Yeah, that’s one of the problems of getting a MAG or a Bitty. You have to name them yourself. But it’s also really fun! 😀 😛
            Yeah :)
            ~Jaclynn~

  • Yeah, I think they kind of are. :)
    Yes, mosquito bites are terrible!! 😛 But I got a ton-probably 20. Some of those might not have been mosquitoes, but most of them were!! 😛

    • Whoa! That’s a lot! I’ve never had that many before! One summer, though I got a lot! Like my right arm had 3-4 mosquito bites in a row! And it was horrible because it was all red- figures it happens when we’re having a 4th of July party! 😀 😛
      ~Jaclynn~

      • yeah, me neither-until now! 😛
        Oh, that’s bad. Practically all my bug bites are on my feet. 😛
        LOL! 😛
        Oh, btw, I forgot to mention that I have another non AG doll-Lily. She is a six year old baby doll(if you know what I mean).

        • Oh, that’s gotta be so annoying! My dad just got bit by a bunch of red ants yesterday. *shiver*
          So, she’s a doll that looks like she’s 6 or you’ve had her for 6 years? LOL! 😀
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yup. 😛 That’s gross! 😛
            LOL! I am not sure how long I’ve had her-maybe 6 or 7 years this Fall? Anyway, she doesn’t exactly look 6, but I had it in my head that she is not a baby for so long that she doesn’t look like a baby. Does that even make sense? LOL! 😀

          • Ooooohh!! I think I get it! I had to read the last part a few times, but I get it now. 😀
            So, you thought that she didn’t look like a baby for such a long time that now she really doesn’t look like a baby to you. Is that right? Hehe 😛
            ~Jaclynn~

  • Aww, those pictures look so sweet! :) You are so blessed to have so many AG dolls. I just have my one girl Emily, whom I got this year. My mom isn’t really into American Girl, so even though I asked for a doll before, I never got one. But we went to New York City this year, and I knew Molly and Emily were retiring. My grandma has Molly (and most of her outfits!), so I got Emily. I feel very blessed and contented with her. I didn’t open her till we got back to the hotel, so I think I have some pictures of us together. My sister has Kirsten, so I have pretty much unlimited access to her, and my cousin has semi-permanently lent me her Samantha, plus I have one or two other generic dolls, besides mini Molly, whom a dear friend bought me. So I too have lots of dolls in a way. Oh, I can’t believe I forgot about my A Life of Faith Elsie! 😛 I got her earlier this year as a gift from my grandparents, so I have lots to be thankful for!
    Anyhow, that was a lot of nothing about me. :/ But I loved this post so much! 😀

    • Oh, thank you so much!
      Aw, that’s awesome! That story is so sweet :)
      Wow- that sure was nice of your friend! Cause even the Mini dolls are expensive, so that was very generous of her :)
      Yes, you do! That’s great 😀
      Thank you again! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
      ~Jaclynn~

    • Hi Molly W.!! I also have A Life of Faith doll, Elsie!! Isn’t she adorable? I love to know that people have Life of Faith dolls! :)
      How old are you?

      • Hello Christian Homeschooler (that name applies to me too, by the way ;))! Yes, I love Elsie so much! Do you have any other ALOF dolls? I really want the others, but they’re really expensive! 😛 I’m 14, same as Jaclynn. 😉

        Jaclynn~Yes! She was the first friend I had that was into AG. We lived near an AG store then, so her parents took her to the store for her birthday, which is 10 days before mine, and gave her some money to spend there. She is really special. :)

        • Aw, that’s awesome! She sounds like a perfect friend :)
          ~Jaclynn~

        • Hehe! That’s great!! 😀
          No, I don’t, but one of my older sisters has Millie, and my younger sister has Violet!!! The one that has Millie really wants Laylie. Don’t you think she is soo cute? :)
          I know!! 😛 Every once in a while(maybe a short while) I check eBay for Life of Faith dolls. And there aren’t many listings, but most of the dolls are waay too much money! And the ones that aren’t ALWAYS get bids. So it would be pretty hard to get one from eBay.
          Do you have any ALOF stuff? I don’t but I think the clothes are awesome. They are soo much better quality then AG clothes(of course, the prices were higher, too).
          So how many AG dolls do you have? I have 1, Josefina. :) I really like her. My mom bought her for me off eBay for Christmas(of 2012). I think that buying a used doll off eBay is really great because they need a happy home. :)
          Oh, that’s fun, because I am 14 too!

          • Christian Homeschooler~Yes! They are all adorable! Have you read the original Mildred/Elsie books? I love them so much more than the ALOF versions. I don’t have any other ALOF stuff (though I’d like to get some), but I love to sew doll clothes (I want to start my own business soonish ;)) so I try to make stuff from their time periods.
            I just have Emily, whom I bought this summer in NYC. When I was younger and used to drool over the AG catalogs (lol), I always wanted Josefina for some reason… My grandma has Molly and a bunch of her stuff–that’s why I got Emily. :) But as I mentioned above, my sister has Kirsten, and Samantha is on a long term loan-out from from my cousin. :)
            I’d like to get a doll off Ebay. I keep looking around, but I can’t find one that I like and that’s the right price…
            Do you want any more AG dolls?
            ~Molly

  • Hehe! From the pictures here I am guessing that you like to wear your hair in a headband. Am I right? :)

    • LOLOL! Yes, I love headbands! I am trying to style it more, though. Like I do side ponytails, high ponytails and then scrunch it, etc. 😉
      ~Jaclynn~

      • 😀 I thought so! LOL!
        That’s fun. :) I sometimes put my hair in a headband for church, but not usually, because my headbands have a habit of slipping out of my hair. 😛

        • 😀
          LOL! I do not like those kind! I usually wear crocheted headbands that my mom makes me and they stay on great! I do wear other headbands, though, but they don’t have that problem 😉
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yeah, I have a crocheted headband that my sister made for me-that stays in pretty good. :)

  • Aww, this was such a fun post! :] I got my first doll from AG in 2005; it was a Bitty Baby that I named Annie! My first 18-inch doll was in 2006 for Christmas. Since then, I have added a Bitty Twin, a Hopscotch Hill, and five more 18-inch dolls. Your dolls are all so cute!

    • Thank you, Bella!
      Aw, that’s a cute name! Which one is she?
      That’s great! Are the 18″ dolls AG? If so, which ones? I’d love to know! :)
      Thnak you!
      ~Jaclynn~

  • We just got a doll (used) for my sisters B-day. My mom is soaking it in Downy and, I just did the baking powder/water treatment yesterday! She was from 2003-2005 Thats my guess anyway. Her tag says made exclusively for american girl??? She have redish brownish hair and freckles I forget the eye color though… Anyway cute doll. I’m fixing up Molly’s hair for her goodbye party. Samantha & Molly invited linda,kit and Susan to their archived goodbye AG doll party!
    Have you looked at madame alexander yet?
    -Grace AG Lover

    • The eye color is blue! Molly’s hair looks almost new!
      Um… I’m a poet and I don’t even know it???LOLOL
      So after we got the makeup of of her skin and the nail polish off (I spent like 1 hour on trying to do that! Mom helped)She is a REALLY pretty doll! My sisters is going to be SO excited seeing as she was a little jealous when I got Sammy.
      Thats all (for now LOL)
      -Grace AG Lover

    • Aw, that’s great! I bet your sister will love her!
      Hmm… I wonder if she’s an older doll then. Maybe a Girl of Today?
      Hehe! I hope they have fun!
      Oh! No, I haven’t! I completely forgot :(
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Yes I bet she will!
        Maybe? The tag does not say when she was made but… She has an AG trademark one her neck? Would that still be girl of the day???
        It’s fine that you forgot!
        Thanks for saying I’m funny by the way! You are to!
        -Grace AG Lover

        • Well, probably. I mean she might be a Girl of Today… Have you looked up all of the MAG’s to see if one of them might be her?
          Ok, I’m really sorry about that! :(
          Hehe! You’re welcome! And thank you! 😀
          ~Jaclynn~

  • You have so many great dolls! I actually think Mickey and Minnie look like a Joshua and Jasmine. I have the girl. I got her from the Goodwill for $6 and named her Janita after a friend of mine. I love your long hair! I’m growing mine out. My first doll was Felicity and I got her from my grandparents on Christmas of 2009. I had wanted Kirsten because she was my favorite historical character at the time, but that was the year she went into the Archives, so they were out of Kirtsens by the time my grandma called. But I now like the Felicity doll better than the Kirsten doll. I have eight dolls right now, and I have two more on my immediate wish list, Mia (2008 GOTY from eBay), and the new My Life As Hairstylist doll. She is Asian, has black hair with blue highlights and side bangs and blue eyes. :) Sorry my message is so long.

    -Morgan

    • Thank you!
      Back then they did to me, too- but now they just look like a Mickey and Minnie 😀
      Oh, wow! That’s a great price! Aw, that’s sweet :)
      Thanks! I do, too, but sometimes it’s annoying 😛
      That’s cool! You got her a year after me! 😀
      Aw, that’s sad. I wanted Samantha, but never had a chance to get her either :(
      Mia is very cute! That’s a good choice :)
      I haven’t heard of that brand before. She sounds cute, though!
      Oh, don’t worry about it! I get way longer and it doesn’t bother me at all! It’s actually kinda fun 😀
      ~Jaclynn~

  • What WordPress theme do you use, Jaclynn? Just wonderin’ :)

    • We actually did a custom theme through Artisteer. We made it how we wanted it and we run the site through WordPress 😉
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Love all the pics, I do not have pics with all my girls ..

    I have been collecting for 8 years now and have 14 AG and 1 bitty twin .. I plan to not get anymore AG now so we will see how that goes. LOL!!

    • Thank you! Me neither. I wish I did, though!
      Wow! That’s a lot of dolls! LOL! Yeah, good luck with that! I don’t want one right now either- however there are some that I like, but I’m not gonna ask for one for Christmas. But I’ll probably want the next HC- LOL! 😀 😛
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Hehe! That’s a good thing!! 😀
    Right, exactly

  • Yeah, seeing that your ONLY MAG and GOTY have freckles, and the other MAG has freckles, so yeah, I kinda noticed 😀 😛 You know what would be SO cute?!?! A BB or BT with red hair and freckles!!! I would LOVE a doll like that! ”
    Yeah, Saige and Cecile only have one more month before our newest family member comes into the family, then I am DEFINATLY done with dolls for the rest of the year… Unless another doll retires that I just HAVE to have… 😛
    LOL! Thank you! 😀
    Yeah, they’re so CUTE!! *Gasp!* I know what to name her now! I could call her Ireland! LOL! 😀 😛
    Well, I’ve been thinking about it, she is one out of the MANY MAG’s that I want. But if I had to pick five, she’d be in that list.
    I know right? Well, I have a plan for that usually. I get a picture of the doll, and put it on Microsoft Word, then I look up baby names and search until I find one I like for the doll. Then I put the name under the picture of the doll. But I only do this when I know I’m getting the doll soon, or when I’m bored 😛
    ~Carli

    • LOLOLOL!!
      *GASP* I have thought about that SO MANY TIMES!! I REALLY want AG to make Irish Bitty Twins! Red hair, freckles, and green eyes 😀 😛
      You know- I never realized that none of the Bitty’s has freckles! Now they really need to do that! 😀
      Wait- who are you getting? Emily?
      LOLOL!! I know what you mean 😛
      You’re welcome! :)
      LOL! Oh! Or how about Iris? You know she actually does look like an Iris… Ugh! Carli, do I need her now? LOLOL! 😀 😛
      Oh, ok! I get that :)
      That’s a good idea! We have this old baby book and I used that when I was thinking of names for Mickey and Minnie. It worked pretty good- aside from the fact that I didn’t use any of the names I had written down! 😛
      Same here! :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • I know, that’d be SO CUTE!!!!! I don’t know why AG has never thought of that! Don’t they usually look at what they’re lacking in their dolls, like a redhead BT?
        You’re right, that is NOT acceptable! 😛
        Well, I’m not sure right now, but if I like her when I go to the AGP then I’ll get her, but if I don’t then I’m going to get my friend some stuff, like a craft and a dolls sized AG bag, and a suveneir T-shirt, but I’m hoping to get her over to my house so I can show her all the new stuff and ask her what she likes, otherwise I have to guess (uh oh… 😛 )!
        Oh that’s a really pretty name, and she does look like an Iris. LOLOL! I don’t know Jaclynn, but if you HAVE to have her then ask for her for Christmas. Or if you don’t want her this year, ask for some AG gift certificates and with that and some of your saved up money, buy her in 2014, unless you want to buy a differant doll.
        That’s a good idea too! Hehe! I know, when I get an MAG I probably go through 20 names until I see her then I decide on a differant one! 😛
        ~Carli

        • I know, right? They a redhead Bitty Baby, so why not Bitty Twins? 😀
          Nope, it’s not!! 😀 😛
          Oh, ok. Aw, that’s nice! :)
          LOLOL! Then you might waste your money- or not because then you could keep it 😛
          It is pretty :)
          LOLOL! Well, I actually forgot about her for a bit, so maybe I don’t need her-yet. LOLOLOL!! 😛
          Hehe- that’s true… I might want the next HC 😀
          LOLOL! That’s funny! Well, it’s good because I didn’t have that problem with Annika. I saw the name “Annika Noelle” as an actresses’s name in a movie I saw and I wrote it down immediately. And that became her name 😀
          ~Jaclynn~

      • Kids don’t usually get freckles till their 8, but I would totally buy that. Hehe, I love Ireland, but I am an irish dancer, so…

  • Oh, my goodness. Alyssa is in the hospital again, but not for seizures. She was gonna have a blood test, but they couldn’t do it because she was too dehydrated. Her blood and heart rate are low and they are going to do a blood transfusion. My mom says that she could die from this. PLEASE pray for Alyssa!! Thank you!
    ~Jaclynn~

    • Oh no! She is on the top of my prayer “list”… I will pray a lot for her! I am SOOOO Sorry that you have to go through this Jaclynn. : (

      • Thank you SO much! It means a lot!
        ~Jaclynn~

        • Hello And how are you today? Have you heard anything about Alyssa?
          I am going to use a shoe rack for my dolls 2nd bunk bed! It’s about 20-22 inches long and so it all works out!
          So excited! Off to to that know LOL!!

          • Hi, I’m good :)
            Yes, she went home feeling much better yesterday! Thank you so much for your prayers! :)
            Oh, that’s a good idea!
            Hehe! Bye! 😀
            ~Jaclynn~

          ~Jaclynn~

          • Oh, We went to walmart to get some kitten food ( Oops I forgot to tell you our kitten (a little less then a year old) Had kittens! They are about 2-3 weeks old and SUPER CUTE!) For our cat (Or kitten LOL!)
            Can’t wait for tomorrow! (AG Picks $500 Winners!)

          • Aw, how cute! I love kittens- they’re so sweet 😀
            Are you keeping them or are you gonna have to get rid of some?
            Oh, really? Cool!
            ~Jaclynn~
            P.S. We went to Walmart yesterday, too :)

  • Molly W. -Um, no. I have not. We do have two of the original Elsie books, though. I just haven’t read any of them because I have already read the ALOF versions. 😉 But nobody in my family has read the Mildred Keith originals, because we could not find them at the library. 😛 But I have read the ALOF Elsie books, Millie books, and Violet books. In my opinion, Millie was the funniest and Elsie was the most inspirational and well-sad! 😛 But a lot of the cryey parts were happy, though. :)
    Yeah, I would too. But it is all so expensive and rare!
    That’s cool! Are you going to do an Etsy shop, or do it on eBay? Every once in a while I sew some doll clothes. A lot of times I sew doll clothes for my sister’s birthday. :) I have sewn stuff for myself, too. :) But it takes a long time, and I am not very good at deciphering sewing instructions. 😛
    hehe! I guess I do too! (not literally, though) ;P
    So you get to play with two dolls!! :) My sister has Samantha-she is SUCH an adorable doll. :)
    Yeah, that’s a good place to find an AG doll. :) I’d say wait till after Christmas to buy one-then it won’t be ALL the rage. 😉 What is your price range? Also, would you buy a doll that needed to be fixed up if it was a reasonable price?
    Yeah, I do. But I kind of want to have Josefina for a while before I get another one. She needs to get a lot of clothes before another doll comes and needs clothes. 😉 But the doll that I really want it the My AG doll with short brown hair-kinda like Kit’s. She is soo cute. And I really want the Innerstar U code, too. :)
    ~Christian Homeschooler

  • we are going to get rid of some… she had four and we already have 3 cats. We will keep at least one maybe two.

  • My dolls are very memorable. When I turned eight, I had saved enough money for my first American girl, a mag named Kaitlyn. She is special to me and I will never give her up

  • Ok here my dolls and how i got them

    Emily Bennett: Christmas 2010
    Isabelle Palmer: Birthday 2014

    I love looking at old pictures :) to refresh my mind :) (if you know what i mean :) )

  • Ok so this is going to be a reeeeeally long comment! Ok👍🏼? Ok. 😄
    Ruthie: after I saw my friend’s Chrissa doll back in 2009, I knew I wanted an AG doll for myself. Ruthie stood out to me with her beautiful curls and her name, because it sounded like mine. ❤️I got an AG gift card for Christmas, and went to the store in early January to get Ruthie, my first doll!

    Saige: 2013. I’d stopped playing with my doll as much, but still had fun from time to time. So one time my family agreed to take me to the AG store, where I found so much stuff that I liked and wanted to get!😝 Pretty soon my dad just said, ” You might as well get a doll!” So, I picked up gorgeous Saige.

    Brooke: 2 dolls: I thought it was enough. I started getting into looking at AGtube and AG blogs, and then I saw a picture of the truly me dolls. It took me a while to decide which one to get, but I finally decided on Brooke, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. :)
