Meet Ka-tie and Mikaela.
She named them completely on her own.
She pays with plenty of other dolls, but these are the two privileged enough to be named.
They must each have a bottle, blankie, passie, and a rattle.
She takes them on walks in her stroller,
carries them on her back,
or ties them around her waist with an apron.
She washes their faces with a q-tip.
But never dresses them.
Today she told me, "When I grow up I want to be a mommy."
I asked her, "How many babies do you want to have Leighton?"
She said, "Twelve. I want to have a whole bunch."
