Making Progress

So today they delivered my birthday present, a new bookcase.

It fit into my room perfect.

It is finally time to get out my collections. I missed this little guy so much I had to give him a kiss.

It is going to take me a while to put these all where I want them.

I have so many Beanie Babies. Many of them I got when I was in the hospital and you know I have spent a lot of days there. So I can't get rid of them because they make me feel good.
Next is my American Girl collection. I got my first doll when I was seven, so how many do you think I have?

There's Kaya, Felicity, Elizabeth and Josefina...

then Kirsten, Addy, Samantha, Nellie and Kit...

and Ruthie, Molly and Julie. My grandma and grandpa give me one each year for Christmas. My grandpa even remembered the year my grandma was in the hospital. So how many did you count? Yep, one is missing. That is the one that looks just like me. I change her clothes and brush her hair, so she is right next to my bed so I can reach her.
Hmm, I wonder if they know that Rebecca Rubin is out? She is the newest girl. She is from New York City and grew up in 1914. I think she is going to tell us about being Jewish. That will be great because I have lots of friends who are Jewish and I learn so much from reading the books with my mom.
Well I better get back to work, we still have a lot to do...
