Introducing Emma Grace! :)

Hi everyone!  Well, it's the moment you've all been waiting for.  My hubby ended up working really late (I think he felt bad for making me wait so long), but as soon as he got home and the kids were in bed, we opened up Emma's box! :)  [Editorial note:  we're not big meanies, I just didn't think that opening a new AG doll in front of the girls right before bedtime would be conducive to sleep! :}]  If, by some miracle, you happen to be reading this post and have no clue what I'm talking about, check out my two earlier posts and you'll be all caught up. :)

I have to say, this doll is sooo beautiful!  Pictures don't do her justice.  If any of you are thinking about adding a #41 to your collection, I would highly recommend her.  I still can't stop looking at her...she's just so gorgeous!! :)  Thank you so much, Nora!! :)  Be sure to check out Nora's wonderful blog:  The Doll Wardrobe.

And now, for the pics you've been waiting for so patiently.  Unfortunately, my camera batteries died before I could take all of the pics I wanted, so there will be a follow up post or two after this where Emma models all of her outfits.  My hubby and I got pics of everything Nora sent, though, so don't worry. :)

Tess and Maggie were eager to meet the newest member of our doll family. :)

FINALLY opening the box that's been in my house all day!!

I can't tell you how excited I was at this exact moment, when I was just about to see her for the first time.  I'm sure all of you AG doll collectors out there know exactly how I felt, though. :)

Seeing her for the first time...Tess and Maggie were impatient for me to turn the box around.

Here she is!!!!

A box full of goodies. :)

A close-up of her pretty face.

She had this cute silver ribbon in her hair.

What a sweetie! :)

Tess and Maggie welcome Emma to the family. (It's funny, I didn't notice where the snowman's head was until after I took the pic...see him in the AG box?)

So here's a shot of everything Nora sent:  the Just Like You star hoodie outfit, the My AG meet outfit, the purple top and grey skinny jeans from Liberty Jane Clothing, a "Fun With Your Doll" book, a little pamphlet with a mini AG magazine to make, some hair ribbons, an Innerstar U code and charm necklace, 3 extra Innerstar U charms, an ADORABLE Marriot mini teddy bear, and a cute little container.  Here are close-ups of everything:

There are three of these, like I said.  I just didn't include the 3rd one in this pic. :)

This bear was so soft.  I think he's going to be Emma's favorite stuffed animal! :)

Well, that's about it! I'll leave you with some parting shots of Emma close up.  Like I said earlier, I'm planning on doing a follow-up post with Emma modeling her other outfits.  I'm also working on her personality profile, too, so I'll share that with you when I have it all figured out. :)  Yay!!  I'm so excited! :)

I LOVE her with her hair down!  :)

She's adorable!!! *squeals* I'm thinking about getting another doll, but I'm not sure yet... :)

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks, Nutti Netti! Hope you get another doll soon, too. :)

Claire said...

She's lovely - I'm thinking about buying a doll in January or asking for one for my February birthday, and she's definitely somewhere at the top! Hope to see more of her soon! I'm so happy you won her!

Olivia said...

Do you recommend her?

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks, Claire! I just did another post with more close ups and all of her outfits. :)

Hi, Olivia! I would recommend her 100%!! She is sooo much prettier than her pictures. She will have the curly hair issues like Lanie and Nikki and some of those dolls, but I've found it pretty easy to manage so far just by finger curling. It helps that her hair's pretty short. I love her hair and eye combo, too! :)
