Alissa Baby

This is the Waldorf baby doll I made for Alissa when she was 5. In a fit of originality she named her Alissa baby, and off she trotted to kindergarten to show off her new dolly. It seems like I just made that doll, and that Alissa was just 5 only a moment ago. But somehow Alissa is now almost 13 and almost as tall as me. Happily she still loves her 'Alissa baby' toting her along to overnights at her friend's homes. I know in a blink she'll be off to college taking her 'Alissa baby' with her because she seems to understand how much love was put into making that doll just for her, and that wherever life takes her, Alissa baby is a bit of home.
