Dorothy casually mentioned on Saturday evening that Sunday was her doll Ashlyn's birthday. She says this stuff all the time-- in fact, I made tiny cookies (shaped with a teaspoon) for an American girl tea party in honor of some other doll on Saturday afternoon, so I didn't really pay close attention.
She woke up totally excited about Ashlyn's party, though, so while I was cleaning up breakfast, I whipped up some chocolate cake batter and dug out my teeny cupcake pans (Also! I made half a batch of this recipe, (with coffee instead of boiling water because I like it better that way) and it made 60 tiny cupcakes, so a quarter batch would have been totally fine, and I am so glad I didn't make the whole thing because I only have 2 tiny cupcake pans.)
While I find the whole thing darling, I noticed in these pictures that a lot of her baby roundness is gone.
